    Yeah, flashing back to stock puts the phone back to a factory state, like when you first got it.

    2.1 is called eclair, and 2.2 is called Froyo. They name each build after a different desert. The next one is 3.0 and it's called gingerbread.

    The only way to go back to 2.1 is by rooting it. 2.2 is MUCH better than 2.1. It was a huge upgrade for us so for now you want 2.2.

    Yes, if you root and install the wifi tether app you will be able to connect both laptops.

    WiFi is just basically just wireless internet and tethering is connecting your computer to your phone to share its data connection. WiFi tethering is connecting your computers wirelessly (WiFi) to the phone instead of using a usb cable.

    You're very welcome, that's what we're here for

    I have never rooted before but when it is possible for froyo i'm doing it. Rooting is kinda an advanced move and giving yourself a little time to get familiar with the system is not a bad idea

    As soon as a root is available I am rooting my phone. I'll be more than happy to help you out with it once I am successful with mine.

    ok, Metalhead -- I *want* 2.2 Froyo...great upgrade....so, have to wait for someone to figure out "rooting" with 2.2 ---- then, I'll add "wifi tether app" -- is this the same as Easy Tether??? -- to connect both laptops to internet....

    RE: this -------> WiFi is just basically just wireless internet and tethering is connecting your computer to your phone to share its data connection. WiFi tethering is connecting your computers wirelessly (WiFi0 to the phone instead of using a usb cable. <------ Personally, I think you should be teaching this stuff in college ;D Dr. Metalhead

    so with wifi tethering, both laptops will be able to access the internet WITHOUT wires -- got it!!!!

    Thanks again....I appreciate that this is an environment to ask questions....a good place to learn.....

    THANK YOU! THANK YOU!! I'm glad you'll be walking down that road and will be familiar with rooting froyo and I think Jak will also be doing this. Now, I just wish someone would figure out how to root 2.2!!!
