    Hi Guys,
    Noob question. Will I need to re-install apps or set up the phone after this root method?
    Thanks for the write up, very cool.

    Is it safe to root before activating the device? Or should I wait and activate it first?

    I did the update. not the rooting. Then I never got the update from verizon. It must have known that the phone was already running the new version. I kept waiting for the notification, and it never came. + I've been a little leary of how much better the phone is now. to me a little laggy, etc. So I'm only saying this to say. For the next version release that is supposed to come out around the 22nd. I'm waiting and letting it happen OTA. I thought I had to be the first kid on the block and I'm not so sure that is the best. I'm sure that the versions are the same. but I still have that skeptical feeling about it. I was playing the wolf, now I'm just a sheep. lol

    OK, so basically my biggest reason to root the droid is so that I can get OS 2.1 on there. Now, when I root my droid(If I root it) when I switch to 2.1 and lets say I want to try out HTC's Sense UI, do I have to re-root the device or something?

    Sorry if I seem a bit new here, but someone said if you root a droid and you do something terribly wrong, you can get a bricked droid and can't get out of it? Is that true?

    Basically what you're doing is pushing an update to your phone with SU .apk slipped in. Like with any software update is something happens during the update, your battery goes out or you physically pull the battery out for example, then yes, bad things will happen.

    I have run through this to the letter (and spaces) and have a couple of questions.

    1) when I type in adb push su /data/local (with a space after su as the directions state) I get an error. If I leave this space out, it continues without error.

    2) When I type the line: cat /data/local/su > su as stated in the instructions, I get a message that says " /data/local/su: No such file or directory.

    Please help
