Need Rooting Help
Hey guys, sorry if this is somewhere else on the forums, but I've looked EVERYWHERE and I couldn't find a solution to my problems. I want to root my Droid (the original one). Most forums here say something about a one click root app for a small price, but those posts are outdated, and the only app I could find (Z4Mod) just lagged up my phone and didn't do anything productive. I've tried rooting by downloading the Droid2Root files and using CMD and following all those directions, but I always get some sort of authentication error, or it just freezes up. Some forums told me that this is because I'm not running the stock Android OS, but I don't know how to do a stock OS reset without actually being rooted first.. I'm afraid that if I keep poking around with it I'm gonna brick the phone completely.
So my question is...
Are there any reliable and current apps available to root my Droid? I'm running 2.2.1 FRG83D.
If there are none, can anyone link me to a current, step-by-step process to root my Droid? I'm a complete noob when it comes to this kind of thing, but I'm a quick learner, so if the directions are clear I should be fine. My problem has been that I can't find any directions that are up-to-date enough to work (I think).
Barring that, is there anyone in the Boston area reading this who would want to make some pocket money to root this baby?
PS. If I left out any important details (which I probably did), just ask!
