    2.2 isn't available via OTA for the Droid yet. Only way you are going to get 2.2 is to flash the leaked rom and that already includes root.

    It depends on your interpretation of what root means. I'm guessing your asking whether or not you can root a phone after upgrading the stock ROM to stock 2.2 (if/when it's available). In that case, it's pure speculation. We'll see what happens in the future, wont we?

    2.1 is not unrootable!!!! Installation of 2.2 can be done quite easily and when you are done you will be rooted.

    You do not have to roll back to 2.0.1.

    You need to download and install SPRecovery and RSD lite. Once you have that you can flash SPRecovery and then install the latest version of Froyo. No rooting is required. 2.2 will actually root your phone when you install it.

    Unfortunately no. You will have to wipe data and cache. Log into google before hand and you apps will reload automatically. This is supposed to work on all versions of android but works much better and faster on 2.2.

    2.1 is rootable but once they officaly release 2.2 they will follow with a 2.2 rooted one like they did before with previous releases.
