    Yeah, lately many of the files for rooting have been screwed up. Click on this link: http://downloads.droidmod.org/dmupdater-11.apk for Droid Mod Updater. It's an app that helps keep phones running Droid Mod updated. The first thing it will do will help you root and I guarantee this works. I'm assuming that you know to open up an emulator, type in "su" and all of that, but this will help you accomplish the main part.

    2.0 Rotary Lockscreen

    You should only need to use a task killer IF (and only IF) a task has attempted to kill YOU in the past. Otherwise, a task can generally be reasoned with and doesn't need to be killed!

    Root 2.1 by using SPRecovery

    1. Download ESE81update.zip
    thanks to Pete of Bugless Beast for creating this file
    2. rename the downloaded file to update.zip
    3. mount Droid to computer
    4. copy file from computer to root of sdcard
    5. unmount card from computer
    6. hold X while rebooting until SPRecovery screen comes up
    7. wipe data factory reset
    8. install
    9. allow update.zip
    10. install /sdcard/update.zip (depreciated)

    You now have the stock 2.1 rom with root access and can play with Metamorph, apply themes, add a kernel for overclocking and more.
