I'm a noob but planning to root my Moto Droid using the method outlined by OMJ in All Things Root (Rooting the Droid without rsd lite up to and including FRG22D). To this point, I have downloaded and installed the Motorola Drivers and ADB Toolkit. I have verified that I can see the Droid in a CMD window with the "ADB Device" command. Before I preceed, I wanted to make sure that understand where I will be at the end. I know this is an easy question for lots of rooters but I just wanted to make sure I understand. At the end of commands and on reboot, my phone will be rooted. I should have the Superuser icon. My data and settings will all be intact. I will have the stock ROM (FRG22D), stock recovery, stock kernal, etc. At this point, I should be able to install ROM Manager which will, in turn, allow me to install ClockworkMOD recovery. At this point, a Nandroid backup is recommended. I can also download SetCPU that will allow me to overclock the stock kernal to 800 Mhz. ROM Manager will allow me to download a custom kernal for overclocking to 1 Ghz (and higher but I plan to start with what others have recommended). Again, my data and setting are intact because I am still using the stock ROM. Any apps requiring root (i.e. WiFi teather) should work fine at this point. I can go back to stock unrooted at anytime by flashing the FRG22D stock sbf file with RSD Lite although any user data will be lost. Does this sound correct?. I know that many folks are going for the custom ROMs but I feel more comfortable with "baby steps" in that direction. Thanks for any help and your indulgence in putting up with a noob question.
