    Is there a way to oneclick root for the ota 2.2 yet? I've tried 100 times to do the method on droid life and the droid 2 method but my F#&$!ng windows vista is a piece of crap and I cant get my phone to connect via usb debugging. Plus when I download the sdk, there isn't an installer included to actually install the sdk to my computer. Mahhhh!!! Why can't these developers use Mac software instead of crappy windows?:mad:

    I recommend rooting using the Android terminal emulator. Super easy and super fast. I've done it twice. Cut the middle man (computer) out.

    Same thing happened to me. It hung. I unplugged the usb from my phone, the dos prompt told me to reconnect. I did and it finished. Finicky! ;)

    I'm rooted on OTA 2.2! Weeks ago when I first downloaded android sdk it screwed up my drivers so I had to delete it and reinstall the drivers to get my computer to recognize my phone. This time when I downloaded the sdk my pc was recognizing my phone so I didn't realize it messed up one of the drivers needed for this root process. long story short, a couple hours wasted earlier trying to root then 5 mins tonight after I checked the drivers and reinstalled them

    Yeah its in the market. Get the one called Android terminal emulator. It's like a command prompt window. I put a link to instructions in my last post.

    I work in an office. It has a window, but it isn't
    In a house, near some mountains.
    that's an actual step that is supposed to be done. you can also, instead of just unplugging, pull down the notification bar, click usb connected, and re-select pc mode (or whatever mode you are using).
