For some reason I am still seeing a $ when it should be a #. I am working with a droid 1 and windows 7 on my mac under parallels, but I dont think that should matter bc I have already connected and done the beginning steps. I am currently restarting my phone a couple times as many people have said that helps somehow?

are you letting it run completely after step 11? It needs to completely return to the command prompt and not just the $. I have seen some say it takes 5 miutes or more. For me it never took more than a minute at most though.

Okay I see Superuser Permissions on the phone :-) Looking in good shape!


Worried though:
Wheenver I tried to make a back-up of the phone I was returned to the M and hadn't moved from there. The phone is back on but I'm not to sure what would cause it to stick as opposed to going in and making a back-up?

On top of that we installed Rom Manager Premium and it says "Application is not installed..?"

OMJ, I'm sorry the script wasn't working haha!! Check your PMs, I sent you the actual working one now. I forgot some code was just chilling there where it shouldn't be, d'oh!! XD

Here's to hoping my makeshift script gets accepted!!

If I started this root method then stopped half way through will that hurt anything? I stopped after step 15.

cranky_dan, I selected Nandroid backup from the clockwork recovery screen to initiate my first backup and now it works everytime initiating from Rom Manager. It might have needed a directory to point to first or something. I am not in Idaho.

Default Root steps won't work with Bugless Beast / Smoked Glass

I used these steps to root my droid and they worked great.
Then, I used Rom Manager to install Bugless Beast and I lost root.
So I re-ran these steps and I got root back.
Then, I used Rom Manager to install Smoked Glass and I lost root again.
I've re-run these steps multiple times and I can't get root back.
I'm not sure what to do. Is there something in Smoked Glass that is screwing up my root? I don't get any errors when running the steps, but when I type su at on the terminal emulator, or run the SuperUser app, I get a force close message.

Has anyone else seen this?

just flash this update.zip in recovery

It should fix any problems you are having with superuser force closing

Hmm, I downloaded the linked update.zip, installed it, then tried again, still no luck.

When I type "su" in the terminal emulator, after about a 10 second pause, I get a "Permission Denied" message.

If you open the superuser app does it still fc? If not when you open it click on terminal emulator then forget. After that it should work

Yeah, the superuser app still fc'ed. I flashed back to my original backup. Then I flashed the Smoked Glass (without flashing Bugless Beast first). Now I'm rooted, so it all seems ok.

ok, so I followed this guide, all good
I have ROM Manager and made a backup with rom manager flash clockworkmod recovery
found a ROM I want to try and have that on my SD Card
when I use ROM manager to install, it gives the option to choose 'backup existing ROM' and 'wipe data and cache'

selecting backup existing would not really be needed since I don't have any other ROM's yet? and what exactly does wipe data and cache mean and do? what's the benefit and what's the risk?

soup or root works the same way as the method in this thread its just a program that does it for you. I helped RDKamikaze getting the first version it working.

I just went through this process. I finally took the plunge!!!! My heart is racing. I have turned off my phone and am getting ready to turn it back on. Wish me luck. I already verified that I have the super user apk in my app drawer.

Here goes nothing and everything at the same time!

I still have this method printed out, somehow the version 0.6 of the "one click" that ran the commands for you worked on my phone.

Since its all the same steps, I don't think it'll take much to type in the commands next time.

Thanks! Everything went just fine. I am now making a Titanium Backup, then a System Backup, and finally I will be flashing my first kernel and rom. I'm thinking I want to check out Bugless Beast.

wow, this is crazy, I'm proof you shouldn't mess with stuff you don't understand!!
I followed the instructions for restoring factory settings and that didn't work either! grrr
I was at least able to get the phone back up so I could get back to ROM Manager and just used one of there roms so my phone is at least working now.

Is this supposed to make you reactivate your phone every time you change Roms?

Wow, Kratos, I assumed I was way behind you in joining the rooted crowd. I feel all special now.

I rooted 3-4 weeks ago and have been running Bugless Beast 0.4 this whole time. I am highly impressed with its lack of bugginess--true to the name I guess.

And it solved all my Froyo wifi issues (and of course allows me wifi tether which has been surprisingly functional...except no WEP key is working...)

Anyway, I may be little more than a strategically shaved monkey, but I do have a rooted Droid by god!

I've been contemplating this for many months now and finally decided to go for it. The main reason I went for it was because I felt more than very conferable, but I also wanted to OC, install custom themes, and just generally have full control of my purchased phone.

I hope this makes since....so I followed these steps as I have 2.2 FRG22D, super easy by the way, however I ended up doing it a second time to reroot and I keep getting an error on this line
mv /system/recovery-from-boot.p /system/recovery-from-boot.p.disabled

I did not get the error the first time I did this, now I get what that line does! any ideas on what to do now? I've already installed a ROM LFY v1.6. did I need to start over again?

dont worry about it. If you flashed a rom the issue is gone.

Hey, I'm a little new, I already had the thing that was on the "ADB" link but I had it before and it isn't up to date, so do I just update everything and I should be good for that part?

Thanks I just used this to root my frg22. So I'm ready to start doing some ROMs which I'll read up on but I just have 1 question to make sure I understand. Since I did not backup anything before rooting, a backup that I make now (I'll be sure to make before doing any ROMs) will be a backup of my rooted phone, correct? Doesn't seem to be a big deal, but just want to make sure I understand. Also, if I did ever want to get back to frg22 not rooted, would that be possible?

Talking Works on Mac OSX!!!

Hey OMJ,

I just transposed your instructions and tried it on my Mac running 10.6.4! It works like a charm! Thanks for the info! It took a while, but it was essentially the same thing!

Vijay!

absolutely....you can either use an sbf file or flashing this http://android.clients.google.com/packages/ota/verizon_voles/a5e329b00288.signed-voles-ota-50454.zip like you would a rom

there is no way to make a backup of your system before its rooted...

you need setcpu from the market. The stock kernel can actually be clocked to 800mhz. If you want to go higher than that you will need a custom kernel.

you must not have selected auto detect. On the main screen press menu then device selection then press auto detect

1ghz is quite safe and a good place to start.

you can find links to all the froyo kernels here Froyo Kernels

and instructions for how to flash a kernel in this thread
The Guide to All Things Root Related

If you havent already done so you will need a custom recovery to flash a kernel. Download rom manager from the market and it will flash clockwork mod recovery for you.
Make sure you make a backup before you flash your first kernel so you have something to go back to if there is a problem.
