    Can someone please help, ive been searching on doing this for about 3 hours now and finally decided to ask.

    I just got a new Droid from Verizon because my proximity sensor wasnt working. I want to root my old phone with 2.1 installed on it, but I want to keep the data. My sole purpose of rooting is so I can use Titanium and transfer data, including application data to my new phone. I have about 50 apps installed, and i dont want to go through and reconfigure each one of those apps.

    If anyone can please help me with this I would greatly appreciate it.

    THANKS!!!

    Yes... you will have to wipe your phone in order to get root... there is no other way if you are on 2.1...
