    z4root failing on Droid1

    Running the FRG83D, 2.2.1 version of froyo from the OTA update. The z4root will run for a minute, change to "acquiring root shell" then the app closes and will not re-open. I have rebooted about 10 times and have no clue. Yes, USB debugging is enabled. Is this one of those things where I need to wait until it is patched for this newer version?

    Thanks.

    Yes, every time there is an update the app must be updated. Google/Verizon know about apps like z4root and normally close the holes they are using. That is why it is best to learn to root the manual way. That works with any version.

    Edit - Sounds like they have an update already.

    catch 22

    I ran into a catch22 with this app on my friends droid1, it would get caught in a loop and never finish. I found a guide that said it needed a custom recovery to move out of this loop and finish the process. IT suggested an app such as ClockworkMod Rom Manager so it can load a different recovery such as the ClockworkMod Recovery or SPRecovery, but Rom Manager can't load a new recovery without being rooted and having superuser permissions. z4root provides superuser permissions, but wont work until another app already has superuser permissions to setup the phone properly for z4root to work in the first place... wtf?

    It took me no more than 5 minutes the other day when I was at work. Let me know if you get it working. It was pretty painless.
