Will the OTA Froyo be root-able immediately? Leaked froyo the final build?
Quick couple questions that may have been answered in topics but I haven't found anything accessible.. will the OTA Froyo be rootable fast or will we have to wait for devs to figure out a new one-button root? Also, I know that rooted users who download the leaked froyo still have root, but I've been weary to do so because I would prefer the final build of 2.2 if I'm going to have waited this long in the first place. Anybody know if the leak is final or a beta?

If I've read and interpreted the information correctly, if you get Froyo via the OTA, it won't be rootable right away, but will be very soon after the official release.

Like I said, this is just how I interpreted the information I read. I might be wrong.
I intend to live forever. So far so good.
OTA Froyo for the Droid X has been confirmed to be rootable by the same process Droid 2 gets rooted with. A one click method will probably come in like a week. Way in advance of when we get Froyo.
First, it will be rooted someday.
Second, no the leaked build is NOT the final build. Guaranteed 100%. If you believe otherwise you're stupid (at people who would argue it is the final, not you). Plain and simple.
Third, there is really very few issues I've run into with the leaked version. Not to mention, as long as you don't mess with the internals, you WILL be able to update to the OTA 2.2 update, as well as just being able to SBF (kitty ran over my keyboard for this part:*flash t=ooooooo-) flash and get back to 2.1 stock and then update from there.
Froyo is stable and fantastic, and literally requires a copy paste if you don't want to root.
