    Sure, if you want to send it to Tucson, AZ. I have a friend who still uses Windows, and he rooted his droid so I know that RSDlite and the SBF files work.

    If you are in college there has to be someone somewhere nearby with a windows PC. 2 files to install, the RSD install and the drivers. Then you drop the sprecovery sbf file on the pc and you can flash SPRecovery and do the rest right on your phone.
    grab the froyo or other sprecovery rom, rename to update.zip and put it on the root of your card. sprecovery installs it and you are done.

    You dont need a computer to root your droid if you have 2.0.1 installed. If you have 2.1 -- yeah you need rsdlite.

    Unfortunately I live in Tucson Arizona as well.

    But here is my take on this....... You really should try to find a computer you can use to do this. You need to root your own phone. That way you understand what it takes to root and what all is involved as well as what is going on with your phone. You are not going to want to stick with the same ROM constantly especially once you start reading about other ROMs. You are going to want to check them all out. If you are not sure how to root or have not done it you will not completely understand how to go about flashing another ROM. I strongly recommend that anyone who wants their droid root should really do it themselves so that they understand how to do it and what is happening as they are doing it.

    That is my 2 cents worth.............. I know I am a kill joy.

    Go to the unlockr.com he has step by step instructions for rsdlite and everything. I followed it and it worked flawlessly.

    Does anyone still have the original sholes signed update.zip that had superuser.apk concatenated? I rooted my droid the day after I got it in November of last year. I tried to root with command line and ADB but there was always something missing from the posts I read. What finally worked was an update I could apply with the original recovery that had superuser. This allowed me to flash SPR with roothelper and the rest is history. If I can find that update.zip I can email it or link it. Download, install, and you're rooted without a computer.

    Basically what has to happen is to get the system partition mounted read/write so you can get superuser.apk written to /system/app and the permissions set.
