    Hi, I had a droid 2 and the screen cracked, so I picked up a Droid 1 from a friend and wanted to root it so I can get the same performance out of it as I had on my droid 2, the only catch is I have a Mac computer, and am having trouble finding any info about rooting using a mac. my droid is running android 2.2.2, Build FRG83G. Is there a Way I can do it, or do I have to get access to a windows pc to root my droid? thanks for your help!

    There's an app that will root it for you. Z4 Root maybe? I can't remember the name. But I have a MacBook Pro and I rooted using Win7 on Boot Camp. I didn't use Windows much after that, so I wiped the partition, otherwise, you can install it using Windows on a Boot Camp partition.

    That isn't to say you can't root with OSX. I rooted my Eris using Terminal and the SDK. But you're right, there is no set of instructions for rooting a Droid on OSX.

    EDIT: Just found out RSD Lite, the program you have to use to root a Droid is Windows only.
