    Had rooted 2.0.1 droid, but it upgraded...

    I downgraded my 2.1 motorola droid to 2.0.1 yesterday, but this morning when I woke up it had upgraded to 2.1 again. I was able to tether before the update, but not now. I still have su, but it doesn't seem to be working now.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Personally, I would install the SPR SBF to 2.1 via RSDLite then use SPR to push over a newer su and SuperUser.apk to /system

    Thanks for the reply. Do you have a link for that? I'm pretty new to this.

    I appreciate all the help.

    Thanks

    You don't push superuser with SPRecovery. You might push it with ADB or Terminal.

    If the OP is having issues with root on 2.1 already, then the only way to put su and SuperUser.apk back on the device is using an update.zip via SPR

    It doesn't really matter what it all means. I was just pointing out that the advice he gave was misguided.

    Read this thread and see if it seems like somehting you can tackle http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...ock-2-1-a.html

    Once you are rooted and have SPRecovery properly installed we can discuss the next big leap to 2.2 Froyo. But let's take some smaller steps first.

    OK...I see what you're saying then...the update zip has a script that pushes the apps. I thought you meant to use SPR to manually push like you would in ADB.
