    I am a new Motorola Droid user. My phone came with 2.0.1 installed. I installed Instant Root 1.04 and attempted to run it but got a message "unble to gain access".
    I started down this road because I wanted to backup my phone so I could do a hard reset. So installed "Titanium Backup". It wouldn't run because my rom wasnt rooted. So i have spend 4 hours researching and each item i find leads me to another issue or program to install. Most everything seems to involve rooting.

    One question I have is if there is a difference between 2.0.1 preinstalled an 2.0.1 ota?

    For background I wanted to reset the phone because none of the 3rd party contact or phone dialing packages will read the native phone list or contacts.

    I owned a Omnia i910 and did a considerable amount of customization on it to I am reasonably familiar with digging around in the guts for a general user.

    Would appreciate any suggestions for any of these issues.

    It would probably be easier doing it by the step by step instructions that they provide you with at rootyourdroid.info

    I know it took me a matter of like 10 minutes, and that was with me reading the instructions multiple times to make sure I was doing every step correctly, to root my droid and to install the SPRecovery to completely back everything up
