    D1 rollback?

    so i know when other update versions have come up sometimes there is talk of rolling back to get root again, but for the most recent update to the D1 i havnt been able to find anything. i rooted my droid with z4root and everything is great, but now my brother wants to root as well. but z4 doesnt seem to be working because he is updated to stock 2.2.1 so i was wondering if there was a way to roll his phone back to 2.2 so that he could use z4 on it.

    thanks

    There is, but have you looked at link two in my signature? That still works on FRG83D, and it provides a custom recovery image for lovely one-stop shopping. If all you want is root access (no custom ROMs or whatever), then you can use superoneclick. I can provide a link if needed.

    I recommend the guide route/manual way...especially if its your first root, so you can both be aware of what "root" actually is. Better for you, and easier on us.

    i looked at superoneclick, but we dont have a windows, and i know the manual way is more trustworthy and better overall, but all we want to do is overclock using setcpu and maybe flash an occasional rom. i rooted using z4 before the update and im now using sprecovery and flashing roms with no problem, so i was just looking for a way to achieve the convenience that i had with z4

    Manual way? You mean through terminal? That won't work on a D1.

    superoneclick is supposed to have a mac version.

    Install the 22D Master OTA file through stock recovery, then root with z4, then put up with annoying nag update messages.

    sorry, i dont know what to call it, but the way in your signature, its windows only right? and superoneclick might have a mac version and i missed it, ill double check.

    this sounds more like what i want to do. where could i get the 22D Master OTA file? and also im not sure what you mean about annoying nag update messages? cause i rooted when i was on 2.2 and have never gotten an update message for 2.2.1

    I can understand the desire to stick to what you're familiar with. When I think of manual rooting I think of using a terminal/emulator or ADB, not using RSD Lite.

    Okay, TRY to install this file by naming it update.zip, putting it on the root of your SD card, and installing from stock recovery.
