    Hey everyone, just rooted my wifes Droid this morning (which was on 2.1 OTA update) with the .sbf recovery via RSDlite, then I used OMJ's update.zip to install superusers. Everything went perfect, however, now I am having trouble finding a kernel that will work. Have tried P3s and jdflg's which say they are for 2.1 but neither booted. Anybody have any suggestions? :eek:

    sheesh what a picky phone. I must have tried 10 kernels and finally the 1ghz 5 slot Chevy's booted.

    sweet thanks Emdmao, Now i have one questions if i follow the root instructions from the Droid-life site Guide to Rooting Android 2.1 on a Motorola Droid - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    and stick with just stock 2.1 root as the link states can i use one of those kernels in that link you posted? im totally new and kinda worried i might screw something up all i want to do is root and keep stock 2.1 and over clock to 800mhz :) thanks in advance
