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
HTC Thunderbolt(Rooted, Das BAMF remix 1.6.3)
1.5 GHz kernel. This thing SMOKES!

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?
- Where is your Superuser.apk (likely /system/app or /data/app).
- Where is your "su" (likely /system/bin or /system/xbin).
- Where is your "busybox" (likely /system/bin or /system/xbin).
- Where is your "mkdir" (likely /system/bin or /system/xbin).
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!
