    Question Re-Rooting after OTA 2.2 Froyo

    Prior to the OTA 2.2 update, I was rooted on 2.1 and did the update than lost my root.

    For the people that rooted after installing 2.2, did you have to remove the root files i.e: Superuser and busybox?

    Or did you just re-do the whole root process without touching them from 2.2?

    I ask this because I thought starting fresh in 2.2 wouldn't hurt so I tried to unroot to remove the Superuser app in the app drawer and then rooting again to prevent problems, but I'm having problems with adb not being able to find my root directory even though I rooted my 2.1 flawlessly the first time.

    I just bit my lip and went with the Droid 2 root process and it looked like it worked.

    When I updated to 2.2 I lost root cause I couldn't use my Root Explorer anymore, after I did the Droid 2 root process I can use Root Explorer again, but the odd thing is I don't have my Superuser app in the App drawer any more.

    I used this link, there's a bit more typing involved than Abe21599's link but the adb guides worked well for me for 2.1 and 2.2.
