    +1 for search.

    I personally had good success with Soup or Root, and other apps in the market that are "one touch root". Google would have the answers for both.

    +1 for Motocache's root guide! Even if you don't use that method, I HIGHLY recommend reading it...a few times!

    I suggest Z4root. Worked like a charm on my Droid 1.

    But don't worry, they will always use z4root. Less reading....

    +1 for Motocache guide. Its in my signature.

    Sent from my rooted A855.

    Link in my sig WILL work, provided your bootloader is 2c 7c or 2c 6c. If there's a 2c 8c, we might not be able to help with that. Try z4root and report back if it works.

    If that doesn't work, sign up over at XDA.

    Thanks furbearingmammal. I will let you know what happens. Obviously I need to power button + dpadup to see my bootloader?

    update: my bootloader is 2c 7c

    Yeah, that hasn't changed with the new OS revisions.
