    I installed the Gmail update from the Market (in Sept I think it was) and it has Priority Inbox support. Just wondered if that was what is in the OTA or if it's a newer version.

    If its an update.zip I think it would? Not sure. Haven't gotten the update notification yet.

    question: is this root procedure using a cracked bootloader or is it similar to those for the D2 Dx whose bootloaders havent yet been decomplied ?

    Neither, the Droid 1's bootloader wasn't locked.

    This root procedure is unique -- the D1 has a bootloader that doesn't freeze or lock up your phone when the recovery image is replaced, it merely restores it to stock unless the script in MotoCache1's update.zip file is flashed; that locks/fixes the new recovery image in memory.

    There's another way to do it, that doesn't even require a computer, that's proven 100% successful in limited trials, or if you just want root access you can use an application called z4root.

    Question about changing keyboard

    I used this month's ago to get root access to my Moto Droid. Still loving it.

    I saw on Droidlife where the new 2.3 keyboard can be installed on rooted phones. I downloaded the .zip but am not sure how to proceed.

    I've never installed other Droid keyboards or theme so it its all new to me. Do I just rename the file I downloaded update.zip and put it at the SD card root and try to install it with SBrecovery?

    There are multiple threads on this. Originally it was for clockwork mod only but someone ported an update.zip to sprecovery.

    Finally figured it out. I thought I had renamed the new .zip file on the SD card. Somehow I missed it and it wasn't renamed.

    Once the filename was changed to update.zip it allowed me to install the new Gingerbread keyboard.
    Thanks,
