    Nope. No well behaved app should be trying to call busybox directly in a special location unless it is keeping its own copy (like Titanium Backup does). Anything that needs busybox should be "finding" it through the PATH. Incidentally, /system/bin appears before /system/xbin in the PATH ("echo $PATH" in a terminal window), so the version in /system/bin would be the one that would end up "prevailing".

    There is a certain bliss to ignorance, but I don't find it appealing.

    That depends on why. What would come up that would require you to unroot? The term "unroot" by itself means too many things to different people.

    Worked great on both phones upgraded to frg22. It is good to have root back. Only problem I had was copying the file to root on phone. I was looking for a certain file to put it in. I didn't think it would be as easy as copying to sd card and renaming. Great write up!

    I have two questions

    1. The PC system I will be using has XP pro on it , but the USB interface is 1.1 vice 2.0, will this have an effect when using RSD Lite?

    2. What is the approximate amount of time between selecting "start" on RSD Lite and the reboot of the driod. Also what is the approximate of this after the droid reboots to "PASS" on RSD Lite?

    Well to remove the su. if for some reason i would need to take it back to verizon. But I now think I can answer my own question. I could always use the FRG01B.sbf then install the frg22.zip file. And again I think I am one of those people that just want to know that they can do something if they want to do it.

    i cant seem to figure this out ive been trying since last night and nothing maybe you guys could help, i read and re read the detailed steps but can seem to get it to root. i am running frg22d.

    1. downloaded everything needed, 32 bit moto drivers, RSD lite, the complete root file,SPRecovery SBF for the Droid 1.
    2. i have renamed the Complete root file to "update.zip" and even tried just "update"

    i can get into the SPRecovery but when i apply the update i get this.

    (complete text whats on the error)
    --Install from SD card...
    Finding update package
    E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1(or /dev/block/mmcblk0
    (no such file or directory)
    E:Can't mount SDCARD:Update.zip
