PLEASE NOTE YOU MAY LOSE ROOT INSTALLING.
If you want to install and still keep root, you can!
I followed all the steps and kept root, but I deleted one of the steps that Black Hat Team recommends.
I wiped the device cache but DID NOT wipe all data/factory reset. If you are like me and coming from stock 2.2 Froyo.or FlyX Final, simply follow all the steps EXCEPT FOR STEP 2,DO NOT WIPE DATA/FACTORY RESET, and you should keep root.
If you still lose Root, just head over XDA Droid 2 Forums and use Droid 2 Root Method to root again.
Please comment on what changes you see from previous Froyo build so we can get an accurate changelog.
Fixed SMS Timestamp issue.
