    I have never rooted before but after updated with the OTA update I am disappointed with it. Can I just download this name it update.zip and do the same install process as the OTA or do I have to wait/do something else to root?

    downloading this will not root you, you have to already be rooted to use this ROM.

    but, your a great test case to find out if 2.2 can be rooted since you have updated already you say. You could download that new just released Easy Root app for $1 and see if you can root your 2.2.. if you can, you prove that 2.2 is still rootable and then you can also take advantage of all the root benefits.

    I asked in Pete's blog, but maybe someone here knows. I've been using SS with bkapps.....can i use bkapps with this rom? I have LOVED having the ability to change roms without losing anything for my apps.
    TIA for the help!

    It says it is only available for droid 2.1 otherwise I would have tried that already. I guess I just have to wait for something

    Not true if you use an SPRecovery .sbf from RSD Lite then flash this as an update.zip. Then you have root.

    **** your right, I didn't even notice that when I bought it. It doesn't really note that on the Droid Life forum but does in the marketplace... my bad.

    but you could still try cough cough ;)

    okay.. I was saying that just simply downloading this file as it is and loading it on your SD card following the process like people are doing today with the not rooted 2.2 thats been posted, will not root you.

    I am not installing the OTA over Pete's b/c Pete's customizations may in fact break this.

    If you installed Pete's Froyo Official (rooted) you'd lose all of his customizations and such, among other things.

    You can be rooted on 2.2 pretty easily - see http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid/141116-guide-rooting-2-2-without-losing-app-data.html

    you, no, not really, stick with BB 0.4 - Pete's optimizations along make 2.2 even better, even if it is based on an older leak.

    So if I am currently stock 2.1 and I want plain vanilla 2.2 but rooted this is the ROM I want want right? any idea why it is so much larger (64MB vs 45MB) than what he started with? not that I will miss the space just wondering what the extra bits are.

    am I right that I need to do two things

    Fist get rooted under 2.1
    second update to this ROM?

    Can i follow the guide ( http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid/136508-guide-all-things-root-related.html ) and just substitute peters Rom or is there more to it?

    For those of you that stayed rooted while the Froyo OTA update was discovered, you can now have it with full root access. Yep, Pete (Mr. Bugless Beast) has already put together the FRG01B build, slipped in superuser and has it ready to rock on your Droid. What
