    Rooting Droid 1 (no imediate accsess to PC)

    First off I want to say these are great forums and I always come here when I need anything droid related.. and now I ask for some personalized help.

    Ok.... so my computer is not in working condition at the moment or this would be a pretty easy task. I'm sorry if there is already a thread about this that I didn't see, but I couldn't find anything on google or the forums here.

    So I'm wanting to root my droid 1.. its running Android Version: 2.2.1, kernel: 2.6.32.9-g68eeef5, Build Number: FRG83D.

    So, I'm wondering if there is a way to root this beast without the use of a PC? Not really looking for a one click app, would much rather tinker and do it my self, but if that's the only way with 2.2.1 its coolio. I just want to unlock the full potential of my device.

    Thanks in advance for the help! And I hope to be an active and contributing member of the forums, untill I go to basic training next month, so how about guys/girls, help a future soldier out?

    No PC not possible.

    There are only 2 ways to root 2.2.1.

    Superoneclick (easy but not "correct" as far as I'm concerned)

    Root Droid 1 - regardless of OS version (correct way that gives you custom recovery and ota blocking)

    Both require use of a PC, so why not just do the second option which gives you custom recovery?

    Good Luck.
