    I guess I have the same thoughts. If I root my phone and screw it up, is there anyway to set it back to factory? And is it a waste of time to do it since the update comes out tomorrow? I had the unofficial OS on my BB Tour, but that was simply downloading the OS to my computer and installing it to my phone, this doesnt sound as simple. Yes, its just a phone, but I cant afford to drop another $600 to buy a new one cause its now a paperweight lol.

    The update seems to not be taking. Followed all the steps and the only weird thing I could see was the file size after the ls -l *su line were both 76232

    Any ideas?

    backflip from AT&T??

    Is this the same process for an AT&T motorola backflip? My friend wants me to figure out if that can be rooted/jailbroken. Thanks.

    I've got a Bionic now, but was planning on just playing around with my original DROID. The first two download links in the OP no longer work. They need updating.

    I'd like to root my phone again, but this thread needs updating and confirmed that the process still works. It would be fun to check out some of the new roms and what not.
