    Yes it did. Use Easy Root. I had my 2.2. FRG01B Droid rooted in a matter of minutes.

    Looks like the Easy Root website is indeed out of commission for now.

    You might have to do it the old way. Flash back to 2.01 with RSD Lite and the sbf file. Force the update to 2.1, root your phone, then upgrade to FRG01B (rooted version), or load a custom 2.2. rom of your choice.

    In the forum dog house.
    EasyRoot is the easiest way, but it's not the only way. You'll have to do the research yourself to ensure that you know everything you need to know to safely use the other methods.
    Personally I would wait for EasyRoot to get back online.
     
  8. i finally took the plunge yesterday and used easy root, first think i did was install set cpu and up the clock speed. now i want to install a custom rom but need to research how to do it

    easy root = 1 button rooting. to easy for words

    Every time I've heard of someone having issues with their phone after rooting (usually losing custom recovery and whatnot), they used Easy Root. I would personally just flash the SBF file with RSD Lite in the traditional way.

    Forget easyroot! Its supposedly stolen code from droidmod in which the dev charges. Dont support him!

    Instead, some devs at XDA have come up with their own app called Universal Androot. Its safe, FREE, and done without any stolen code (as far as anyone can tell so far).

    The site to download it at is: universalandroot ????

    Its in chinese or something but you should be able to figure out how to download it. Do it from your phone and install it right away.

    I've used it already and it worked flawlessly. Took 5 seconds to root my device (had to use it since I accidentally installed the stock 2.2 and lost root - didnt want to have to jump through all the hoops of downgrading, re-rooting, etc)

    BTW - descriptions do not list the moto droid as a supported device but it does work. Search around if you are hesitant - other moto droid users have had success as well

    Sharing and even linking to pirated, private/paid apps is against the rules on this forum.

    On another note, is easy root still causing recovery issues? The last I heard, almost everyone who used easy root had some sort of issue with the recoveries and had to work very hard to correct the errors.

    That's fine. I was just nicely warning you so you don't accidentally get the ban hammer.

    Here is the 2.2 rooting guide from this forum: http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid/141116-guide-rooting-2-2-windows-linux.html

    If you ask around in the All Things Root: Droid forum, you will be able to find many people willing to help you out. You can find that here: All Things Root (Droid) - Android Forums

    Finally, I suggest reading everything you can in that whole forum and guide thread and then reading it all 3-5 more times. Make sure you really understand what you are doing before even attempting to root.

    That helped me out alot and omg i love being rooted , My phone is now faster then ever and the batter last now thats over all a ++++ because before i rooted it only lasted like 4hrs now it is lasting longer its been 5hrs and its is only at 65% So yeah i am pretty much happy. So Thanks For all the tips . Also if i was a non rooted users i suggest going the rooted route till they realse FRG22 or whatever new rom then Flash Back to stock and get the new update .

    If you're so happy with root, why would you flash back to stock? You realize that we have the FRG22 based code, and more importantly, ROMs built from source which is even more up-to-date than FRG22 (FRG22 was pulled at some point from source, so ROMs pulled from source after FRG22 was pulled should be even newer).
