    Is there a confirmed way to root after you upgrade to 2.3.4 ?

    I read the 2.3.4 thread and learned a lot but I'm still unclear if there's a verified (and what the steps are) way to root after 2.3.4.

    install the superuser for 2.3.3, it worked perfectly for me.

    If you flash the update, then flash the superuser apk right after - all from custom recovery you can keep root.

    I was running stock rooted gingerbread 2.3.3.
    I installed a custom recovery.
    flash the latest gingerbread update (DO NOT reboot after flashing this)
    then flashed the superuser apk
    rebooted the phone and I was updated to 2.3.4 with root.

    if you want more details I can write something out for you - with the help of a lot of people I was able to do this

    Hi,

    Just jumping in on this discussion...I, and I think many others, too, would appreciate some instructions. I know for myself, I've put in a few hours reading up on what rooting is and best ways to do it...and then wham-o, out comes 2.34. Now the instructions for the updated rooting methods are not written for newbs and are way beyond my comprehension. So again, it would be greatly appreciated...or some good links.

    Cheers in advance!

    I was and still am in the same boat.
    There is a TON of information out there about what rooting is, how to root, and so on and so forth.

    I first roote don 2.3.3 with the help of an APK package.
    Then when 2.3.4 rolled out I had to try and keep root.
    I was able to do this through reading a lot and posting a million and one questions.

    I will put something together on my experience and maybe it can help you guys!
