    easy root doesn't work... about to try universal androot, or whatever it's called
    nevermind, according to droid-life, androot doesn't work either
    Confirmed, I just went from rooted FRG01B to unrooted FRG22D.

    And more importantly, this new update includes a new recovery image. I have to wonder if this new recovery image is locked similarly as the recovery image has been on the Droid2.

    If you like having your Droid1 rooted, or if you ever want to root your Droid1, I'd strongly suggest waiting to hear more about this from the pros before attemping to install it.
    I tried to install it. SPRecovery blocked it. I renamed the file update.zip and it still blocked it.

    It's official, and the bootloader is not locked (I just flashed sprecovery). It has a new feature built into it (like FRG01B) where it restores stock recovery upon reboot after flashing sprecovery (or cw), but that can be worked around.

    So this means Droids can be rooted post-patch?

    To sum this stuff up...it appears there is no advantage to updating to FRG22D. (I already have FlashPlayer) if someone is on a custom ROM FRG22D would nullify the ROM more than likely unless the builder had it setup to run on 22D. I understand EasyRoot and the other one-click app will not work on 22D so someone would have to do the other work around to root. As of right now it would just be better to wait if phone is rooted and have FlashPlayer etc. than going to FRG22D. Did I hit that on the head? Just a few replies will suffice.

    Osprey,

    While I do not want to contradict CK (as he has the ability to send me to oblivion), the advantage I see to 22D with regard to market is having flash and other google apps installed properly. By properly I mean with the ability to get automatic market updates. I had the original FRF22 installed, but quite a few of the newer google apps and flash were via manual install, with no market link.

    One other point is that CVPCS reported (more confirmed) that there are indeed a couple of different files as they relate to gps and wifi. So, if your phone is running fine on all points, and you can live with keeping manual track of some apps, then you are probably good to go.

    Evidently, yes. I haven't tried it myself (about to), but a couple of people are reporting that they were able to get root access post today's official 22D OTA patch with Motocache's method.
