    Hey guys i was looking int orooting my Moto Droid. I came across this video on youtube, YouTube - Motorola Droid How to ROOT your Droid - The Easy Way!, I was wondering if anyone knows if I can root my 2.1 Droid using this tutorial. If I can't when do you think there will be a 2.1 Droid root relese without reverting to 2.0.1. Thanks

    Didnt watch the video cause I am at work but you cannot root 2.1 without reverting to 2.0.1 If someone ever finds a 2.1 root exploit which is kinda unlikely imo its going to be awhile

    why do you think it will be so long they came out with the 2.0.1 root pretty quickly?

    Probably because there is no incentive to look for it as it is easy to go back and root and then install a 2.1 rom.

    Yep, but in theory, all apps from the market should redownload (it doesn't always happen). Contacts will sync back to your phone. Just make sure you have your settings synced with you Google account.

    i can add in whatever videos you have if they are complete to the rooting guide, no need for 2 sticky threads on the same thing though.

    True. That's a good idea.
