    Well as of two days ago my beloved rooted droid1 is no more. :( I was heading out to take my dog outside and I left my phone on my end talbe still plugged in all was fine. When I came back in I checked my rooted droid and all I had was the Motorola emblem!! Don't know what happened or why just no phone at all nada,nothing, no one was around so no one messed with it it just seems like it erased everything itself! A complete wipe! SD card all of it, all backups, stock everything! Udder loss! Verizon sent me out a replacement one,but it sucks bad my perfect Droid gone sooo heart broken. And the replacement one has been updated so I can't root with a one click method like I did with the first. (z4root) I don't have a computer or even internet, so anything I do I have to do via phone method. Now my replacement phone is also being sent back cuz its refurbished and doesn't charge right you have to hold it in place or it wont charge. So they are going to send another one out and it will be on 2.2.1 but this one is on 2.2.2 which sucks by the way. What to do??? I want my original one back i was using my favorite rom miui ,but don't know why it did what it did. Anyone who knows what happened and why so I can make sure it wont happen again would greatly appreciate it.
    Thanks in advance!

    I am on my 5th og droid. This refurbished one is the best to date. About your problem... you can use someone else's computer or library maybe? Lol you might get looked at funny when they see what's running on the screen. Super one click root still roots no problems.

    Well if the one they send me tomorrow isn't any better...hell is coming on earth that's for sure! I spend major $$$'s on their Droid brand new,it gets defective before my contract is up and if they think they can pacify me with a refurbished one they gotta another thing coming! I at least expect it to last till the next upgrade! I don't abuse it if anything more obssesed over it.

    And worse yet,I know more about computers like my dog knows not to get into trash..lol not very computer savy at all. I'm doing good with just enough terms to get what I need on my Droid rooted. What I learned here is all I know nothing else, when people start talking sbf files and rsdlite and USB connection its pretty much mud to me. I didnt have a need for computers so I never cared to learn it or its terms. Old school here before computers. Lol

    Lmao! Well now, that's alot of flashing that's for sure. I was on miui 1.3 and on pl3 lv 1100 kernal
    Clockworkmod recovery/sprecovery till my phone just flat out died on me. I can't root this one its on 2.2.2 and its going back to Verizon anyway. Just hope that the phone coming tomorrow wont be updated yet so I can attempt to root it like my first one.

    I'm on my 4th OG Droid this one I was finally able to root, the 5th "replacement" I sent back to them.

    Now I am sitting with the "push" upon me ignoring it constantly - 5 different apps downloaded to install a new ROM with no clear idea how to make that push go away.

    So you guys are saying... the push or system update 2.2.2 for my Original Droid will unroot and dis-able the ability to root?

    This one has the update on it from Verizon and it won't root at all!! Just freezes and have to resort to a battery pull and power back on to get it back to normal. Just refuses to get access. Ignore the update! Its not anything at all.

    How do I turn it off? How do I reject it? Do I just flash the ROM & it will go away? I saw another thread here & they were talking about it... I'll mossey on over there & see if I can find some answers. BTW-Outside of being rooted & wireless tether I'm running everything else stock.

    The update was a mom's fix and if your rooted your recovery should block it. I see no difference between this one and the last one. Really your not getting anything from this update in my opion,so not worth it and they did this update to unroot and block hackers from gaining access to your phone's data. That still wont stop me from trying to root. I will just be more careful about what I dwnld that's all. So don't take the update! If you do you won't be able to root it back.

    Just install a custom rom, CM 6.1 would be a good one for you. It will stop the notifications and add a lot of functionality.

    Also, to the OP, none of your friends have a CPU you can use to SBF? If you use the sbf file you can restore all the way back to 2.0 if you'd like.

    All of you going thru replacement phones, does Vzw ever ask if you root, occur, etc? I thought doing so void any warranty, even if you're insured.
