    RootYourDroid.info Closing :(

    Just wanted to let you all know that I will be closing RootYourDroid.info at the end of the month. For months the guides were left without updates with my inability to administrate the site due to recent, real-life havoc. If you want to read more, please follow this link:

    The End of the Road | Root Your Droid

    Thank you to everyone here for helping RYD stay relevant and helpful over its life. I hope that this site is no longer needed as the ones who I would have helped are already seasoned on Android hacking.

    I'll still be very active in this and other communities, I just can't give the required time and attention to the site I was once able to give.

    Fun Fact: RootYourDroid.info provided exactly 33,615 2.0.1 update.zips before 2.1 was officially released!

    Sorry to hear that, Big Lou. It was through the guides on your site that I first rooted my Droid, so you were a big help to me. I'm sure I'm not alone. Good luck in your future endeavors.

    Understand Big Lou, your site is how I learned about rooting and actually performed my "root" off your site. Thank you sooo much for your contribution to the droid community!

    Big Lou nooo! I never got to thank you for all the help you gave me when I first got my droid. Thank you soo much for all the help you provided the community and myself. I agree with the earlier posts, I hope you stick around here as a mentor. Maybe they can add your tuts into a help section for all to enjoy

    I don't want people to think I'm having problems... quite the opposite! It's just I accepted a new position at work which means I can't spend any time at all on RYD there, plus it has more demanding hours. I also just closed on a new house and we got a puppy not too long ago. Needless to say, I've just been too darn busy!

    Oh well, thank you for the comments!

    I was a big user of that for me and my friends - so much that we started a similar site (link in sig) to help with the rooting process/ show many of the options once rooted

    now that youre gone looks like were gonna have to add some more stuff and host our own files
