    you were rooted probably without a custom recovery,rom, or any enhanced features if the ota let you update, and you desire root for what?

    You could just wait a week and see if they come out with a way to root 2.2

    Im sure it will happen.

    Here's what you can do. You can use dmupdater12 to root your Droid to 2.2 FRG01B. Then if you want, though I wouldn't you can install FRG22D from P3 Droid. Now I have questions as to whether or not that is the same FRG22D that is a signed Verizon version but you can try it. If you can see Flash in the Market it's working great (if you already have Flash you may not see it). Anyway that is a rooted version of FRG22D.

    If you want you can go through the rooting process again and just install FRG22D it's a complete ROM but I would feel better installing FRG01B first. It's up to you.

    Get dmupdater 12 at DroidMod.org | Insert a catchy tagline here.
