    Rooted 2.1 - 2.2 Unrooted

    My buddy sold me his droid recently and he had it rooted on 2.1 but when it updated to 2.2 it became unrooted, and now if i try to root it with 2.2 it wont do it, and it also wont unroot. Im using "Universal Androot"

    Anyone know how I can fix this? I want to root it on 2.2.

    Thank you very much!

    I took a look at the recommended link and..well..it makes me a little nervous. I'll do it if it's absolutely necessary but is there any other option?

    My phone seems to think (or at least universal androot) that it's already rooted. I feel like I should be doing something to fix that before doing anything...and then I could just use universal androot to root it.

    Why would my phone think it's rooted when it isn't? My friend told me when he updated to 2.2 from 2.1 it must have broken the "root" and now it's just kind of..stuck I guess. It's unrooted but thinks it is.

    That link is the only known way to root FRG22D. Any official update will break root, so it's that or nothing. It's a lot scarier looking than it is doing.

    If you do what MotoCache1 says, and there are some known issues and solutions in the thread if you run into any problems, you should have your phone rooted in under an hour, with SPRecovery. SPRecovery will let you flash new kernels for overclocking and features, including reduced voltage to save battery life, themes to pretty it up, custom ROMs, etc., as well as making nandroid backups so you can restore your phone's state in case anything goes haywire.
