Thanks guidot, for some reason I was expecting it to say a855. Even after that it wouldn't activate the start button, so then I ran through the steps on 6 of the FEI, and finally got the start button working by moving the file to C: and renaming it MC1.sbf. Of course then it started throwing the Failed Flashing alarm so I ran through the steps of post 317 but that didn't work so I had to go to the post from rezo on Android Forums and that finally allowed me to flash the sbf file. It worked so easily the first time I rooted, I don't know what changed this time.
Much thanks to everybody for all the great documentation!!!
Just performed my very first root on my D1. Thanks for this amazing walk through. Took me a little patience to read and adapt the instructions to run in a mac terminal. I don't have a pc with Windows or Linux. The new universal sbf_flash worked perfectly. Thank you for your time.
Rooted, first time, no problems at all. Previously rooted a Coby Kyros MID7015. These instructions were easier, and certainly less stressful. Great walkthrough. Thanks!
Link to RSD Lite v4.6 in the instructions was broken... be careful looking for it. I hit a couple of pages that tried to load malware while searching for it.
I know this is an old post, but I just had to chime in because I just used this procedure on my Droid, and it works like a champ. Thanks for the EXCELLENT write up. I'm no dummy, but this procedure scared me before I read this. The writeup gave me the understanding and confidence to jump into the root end of the pool.
It works!!!! <g>
Thanks, MotoCache! I really appreciate it.
NEWLY rooted Droid
Android 2.2.2, FRG83G
I'm assuming I don't need to unmount my SD card?? Also, do I need to turn USB debugging on? I know you didn't say to do either, but I'm just being thorough before I do this. Also, will this wipe my SD card?

You mean unmount from the PC or the Phone? It should be just a phone when plugged in, NOT mounted as a drive to the PC to use RSDLite.
And it will NOT wipe your SDcard.
