    Help Rooting Droid 1 for wi fi

    I have never "rooted" anything before. I recently got an ipad and would like to use its internet. How can i easily root this droid? It is the very first droid. I would like something simple and not complicated.

    some people make the rooting list of instructions way too long and complicated, I think it's quite simple for the Droid1.

    1. Enable USB debugging
    2. Download rageagainstthecage
    3. adb push rageagainstthecage /sdcard
    4. adb shell
    5. cd /sdcard
    6. chmod 0775 rageagainstthecage
    7. ./rageagainstthecage (then wait for it to kick you out of the shell)
    8. adb shell (if you get a '#' prompt, you win! exit the shell now)
    9. Download superuser.apk
    10. adb install superuser.apk

    btw - you could actually help me out a significant amount, if after you get 'adb' running you could run a command and give me the output. I have another thread on this asking for help. So if you could let me know when you get adb working, I would love your help in return

    you can try to use [APP]SuperOneClick v1.7 (Root, Unroot, Enable Non-Market App) - xda-developers, but I guarantee you you'll spend just as much time trying to figure out how to run it on a mac (and it didn't even work for me), as it would take you to learn ADB (it's easy)

    do you know how to use the terminal in mac os?

    im going to stop you right here.. before people tell you how to root, why don't you go read about it and learn what terminal is..

    trust me don't go rooting your phone when you don't even know what terminal is.
