    I thought this would be coming from someone although not sure I would have guessed DM. Based off the same way birdman rooted the Droid X I suspect.

    I've been rooting friend's Droids for some time, this is great news! Will definitely save me about 20-30 minutes of RSD waiting time!

    I was thinking the same thing lol. "2.1 Root updater is out....oh wait....it no longer works because we are already on 2.2 ... Darn!!!" Back to the drawing board DroidMod. See you in another 3 or 4 months when you come out with something totally awesome like a 2.1 ROM or something.

    this is by far the easiest way to root! yes 2.2 comes next week, but not the benefits of having a rooted 2.2 rom. get it while its hot!

    Little chance this exploit will be patched for 2.2 although it really should be. Since this exploit affects every android device its a big issue. Really any market app could get root access and do whatever it wanted to stock users.

    So in theory, this same DMUpdater could be used for 2.2 to gain root access?
    If so, that would be pretty cool I guess.

    In theory yes but for reasons stated above I hope they have this exploit patched for 2.2.

    Got to give the DroidMod team credit where credit is due. I rooted my phone with DMU when it first came out. I knew nothing about rooting or custom Roms back then and DMU made it simple. Too bad their custom roms never took off.

    So today I completely screwed my phone up and ended up using an sbf to go back to 2.0.1

    I was going to use the old DMUpdater to root 2.0.1 for me because it is easier than messing with rsd lite and I was in a hurry to get off 2.0.1

    Well it told me there was a new version available and pointed me to the market where a new version is available for $20. Obviously I went through the hoops of using rsd lite to get SPR and used an old nandroid to get my CM6 setup back.

    I cant believe that they are asking $20 for this. I cant seem to find it on the market by searching though not sure whats up with that.

    I had to do this same thing a couple of weeks ago, and used the old DMUpdater to get root back. Are you saying that the old version will no longer work -- that it won't do anything but direct you to the $20 new version?

    EDIT: If that's the case, I have the old root update.zip (from 2.0.1) from the original rootyourdroid.info website (I used this file back in January to root for the first time). If there's anyone who finds him/herself needing it, hit me up on PM.

    Im pretty sure it was the old one. I know I did download the newer one when Droidlife posted the beta but I thought I deleted it
