    i have a verizon motorola droid 1 with 2.2.3.....ALL i want to do is root...i dont want to install roms....what is the EASIEST way to JUST root ????

    I rooted by watching a video on YouTube that had a link to something called superoneclick. I followed the instructions and its easy.

    I believe SuperOneClick or GingerBreak would work. Let me ask you something though. Why do you want to root? If it's not to install custom ROMs or kernels, etc, why do you want to root? Are there root apps that you'd like to use? Perhaps it'd be best if you told us your ultimate goal so that way we can decide if rooting is even a necessity for you.
    Don't be scared, adb is your friend.

    yes, i want to run superuser and setcpu, for the ONLY purpose to overclock. i dont want to get involved with roms, installations, etc, i JUST want to overclock !

    Well if you want to over clock, you'll have to do more than just root. You can't over clock the stock kernel. You'll need to install a custom recovery and flash a custom kernel.

    No. You're missing a custom kernel. The stock kernel is maxed at either 600 MHz or 800 MHz. You need a custom kernel that allows slots past that. Otherwise, setcpu does you no good.

    That's correct, you'll max out at 800 on the stock kernel. I would use rsd lite to flash raidzero's recovery. Then flash a custom, rooted rom.

    im sure it would perform better that way, but it is quite more than i am comfortable doing! i prefer to just root and use setcpu and live with the 800 mzh....so, baxk to my original question, what is the EASIEST way to root the droid 1 with 2.2.3 ???

    Well then that's not over clocking. In fact its almost a waste for you to root since your only goal was overclocking. And there are no one click roots available for 2.2.3 (I just checked). If you still want to root search "root Droid 1 regardless of OS" on these forums.
