    the os i was running was stock FRG22D
    Everything looks great for the update.zip part.


    1. Did you grab the screen grab with DDMS?
    2. Can you confirm the name of the SBF you loaded?
    3. How did you originally get to stock FRG22D?

    If power cycling the phone doesn't clear you up, then the first and least intrusive option would probably be to grab the FRG22D "master OTA" (search for it here on the forums), copy that to your SD card and apply it. That should put you back to stock. Then you can decide if you want to try rooting again or not.
    Just for the sake of documenting it in case I or anybody else wonders what the solution was to this one (worked out via PM), this phone had a semi-ugly unroot process done prior to doing this process. I had the requestor install the FRG22D master OTA to get to a clean unrooted state and all was well from there out.

    My jaw is on the floor.

    I just received a new OG Droid today (old one's charge port was real loose), and 5 minutes later, I'm up, rooted, and using Titanium Backup (Holy crap recommended) to restore my apps and data.

    BRILLIANT write-up. Remind me that I owe you a 12-pack

    I didn't see an answer to my question, so my apologies if it's already been asked. I rooted a while back using Easy Root; no problems, overclocked, and everything is working fine on FRG01B. Got an OTA a week ago for the update, but I declined figuring it would break root, and it never asked again. I already have Flash, so I'm not sure I'm missing anything. I've had no issues being rooted so far, but would feel better doing it myself, esp. after reading post #155 (Thanks for that, by the way!), plus I am going to be checking out other ROM's, and don't trust the 1-click method any more.

    My question is: If I want to re-root using the method at the beginning of this thread, is it just a simple matter of un-rooting Easy Root/uninstalling it, and then have at it?

    Thanks

    Please go through everything in the "Frequently Encountered Issues" section of the OP. If none of that works, come back here and post full details of everything and we'll see what we see.

    Great post Jeffe65. I wouldn't bother "unrooting" - probably no need. Tell me the answers to the following (you can just use a numbered list that matches my numbered questions to your numbered answers) and I'll let you know if I see any issues and what I'd do.

    1. Where is your Superuser.apk (likely /system/app or /data/app).
    2. Where is your "su" (likely /system/bin or /system/xbin).
    3. Where is your "busybox" (likely /system/bin or /system/xbin).
    4. Where is your "mkdir" (likely /system/bin or /system/xbin).

    Doesn't step 13 of the instructions explicitly cover that?

    Just wanted to post my thanks to MotoCache1 for the write up, everything worked flawlessly for a rookie here. I accidentally applied the OTA FRG22D upgrade over my rooted (via easyroot) FRG01B installation and lost su capabilities, most notably for me was that the wifi tether app would no longer run. After a quick run through of these great instructions I'm back in business. Thanks again!
