    sorry I'm new at trying to root, but can you root the new FRG22D update. I have been trying to find it online but can't.

    thanks

    Yup, I second Lock-N-Load's mention, that's how I did it. My original Moto Droid was running stock Froyo FRG22D and I rooted yesterday. I'm good at following instructions, but I was having issues and making real slow head way following the root guide for some reason. After a few hours I decided to give RDKamikaze's new contraption a shot and it worked great. He's really on it and has updated several times already. I used an older version and had root within a few minutes. Now I just need to figure out what to do with this root:D

    i tried that one step- root. and it didn't work. It did a bunch of stuff, then at the end it says " if there was an error, then press any key" when i did this it closes out the window.

    use this update http://android.clients.google.com/packages/ota/verizon_voles/a5e329b00288.signed-voles-ota-50454.zip

    Directions for forcing it can be found http://androidforums.com/motorola-d...update-motrola-droid-frg22d-update-2-2-a.html

    Just make sure you use the file I linked in this post and not the one in that thread.

    Edit: this will make you lose root. If you wanna keep root just flash this rom http://androidoverdrive.com/pete/OEM/FRG22D-ODEXED.zip

    No real reason other than odexed is closer to stock. And if he was on odexed before and goes to deodexed he would have to wipe data(In most cases)

    interesting.. any method to tell, post root, which one you installed? I can't recall what FRG01B I did of Pete's to be honest.

    use root explorer (or another file manager) and browse you /system/app folder and see if there are .odex files there.
