    I'm surprised I haven't seen this posted here yet. This is basically the same app as easy root, except that it is free :)

    Here's the developer's site (he's Chinese, it seems):

    universalandroot ????

    And I've attached the .apk to this post as well.

    This works on the Droid X, as well as many other phones:

    Enjoy!

    Also, this thread over at XDA was very helpful as well:

    [APP] [ROOT] 1-click root for N1 (Latest ver: 1.6.1) - xda-developers

    Thanks for posting this. I think I'll try this one first. If for whatever reason it doesn't work, then I may try EasyRoot afterward.

    Tried looking for a video example on YouTube or something but I couldn't find anything.

    Thanks. I appreciate it, but I meant a video example of Universal Androot. I've already seen videos on EasyRoot.

    I rooted using the 1 click method on my computer...but it was a struggle...running bootcamp windows 7 and it took 20 attempts before it worked...

    Can I run this program(universal) to unroot and then root again so I am set up for root and am easily able to get out of it...not sure I will be able to get the 1 click method to work again for me..

    Yes i read it but i didnt know they were the same thing :p I said im new and I dont know what roms n bins are, but I want to root mostly for the free wifi tether. I was holding off rooting until the update and now if I want to try the leaked version it says to root first and do some steps to move SU file which i'm a lil scared to do. I posted questions but no one has answered them yet about if I wait for the official 2.2 would i have to unroot first....I've been reading all the posts just makes me very confused :thinking: lol
    Sorry but thanks for answering me atleast!

    I screwed up my 2.2 build and then like an idiot I tried to nandroid back to 2.1. Didn't work, I got stuck at the Moto logo. I finally got RSD to find my phone so I could flash .604 sbf.

    Once back to 2.1 I used this to re-root. 1-click wait a few seconds and it pops up with "woot you have root". Doesn't get much easier than that. Thanks for the file.

    I will not upgrade to Froyo until either it is release officially and confirmed to be rootable, or when a decent copy of Froyo is leaked/built/released that numerous users can confirm as working properly. I'm more of one of those people who let others do the testing for me, then I follow procedures given once all is said and done. I just got my phone yesterday, I do not want to **** this baby up right now. I don't care if I can downgrade or if there's little risk. I simply have no interest in it right now. :p

    I rooted 2.1, not 2.2.

    probably a good idea. plus, it'll be good to really get used to 2.1, so when you do get 2.2, you'll know just how much better it really is.

    I don't see where it says that this works on the original Droid, if it does at all, but I tested this root method on my cousin's fiance's Droid running Froyo and it rooted it flawlessly. I immediately downloaded Free Wifi-Tether for Root Users and it ran without a hitch.

    Just wanted to mention it I guess.

    Might be doing this to the wife's phone, then overclocking it to a beast of a phone. haven't read much on how much the droid1 can overclock, but I heard it can take a nice dose.
