    OG Droid Root?

    Is there a one click method to Root the OG Droid. Trying to do this for my father in law. Also does wireless tether work on OG Droid Rooted? He is a trucker and I would like to set him up so when he is on the road he can tether his new Ipad2 to is Droid. A point in the right direction would be appreciated. Or if I can use wireless tether via blue tooth without rooting that would be perfect.

    There are 2 ways to root a 2.2.2 updated Droid.

    Superoneclick at xda-developers.com

    Or, the first link in my signature Root D1 Regardless

    Neither of them are one-click. Google has closed all the one-click vulnerabilities.

    Z4Root is not one of the 2 ways I listed here:

    Ok a simple no would have been sufficient. I had previous reply that say they have used z4root. Didn't know if you just preferred the 2 links you had sent.

    No. Z4Root will not work on 2.2.2.

    The 2 methods I listed are the only ways to do it now.

    The previous poster may have rooted with Z4Root when it was OS 2.1 or lower.

    Sorry if I seemed harsh, realized I didn't put the "only 2 ways" in there!

    You need 1.6 or 1.7. The newer versions use a different exploit that the D1 OS (2.2.2) blocked.
