    ok, so ive never rooted my phone, but now i want to since 2.1 sucks, and theres nothing really new about it. I did the manual update to 2.1 by placing the update file in my root folder of the sd card, and i am currently running 2.1. How on earth do i get back to 2.01 if possible and is there any way to do it without risking messing up my phone? thanks

    Welcome to the forum, chadwick02. There's a way to go back to 2.0.1 and root, but be a little patient. I have it on good authority that rooting 2.1 is right around the corner. Your choice, but I'd hang on for a couple of days and see what happens... Hope you enjoy your time here!

    :welcome:

    I was thinking about rooting mine tonight also. I'm getting a bit jealous of all the over clocking and things you can do with a rooted Droid. The only reason I really was waiting for the 2.1 was for pinch to zoom and worried about losing Warranty on my phone. If they are getting close to being able to root 2.1 then I might wait, if it's going to be awhile then I want to go ahead and root mine.

    if you've got the 2.1 OTA you will have to flash the sbf with rsd lite, root, then can flash 2.1. There's a guide for doing this in here, will link if you need it.

    Could you link the thread please. I found it earlier but don't want to search through endless threads tonight when I get home to do this. Thanks in advance.

    Yes you have to do the first one because 2.1 is not currently rootable. You have to go back to 2.0.1, root then install the modified 2.1

    and it says at the end to perform a master reset/master clear at the end, yet in the directions you linked it doesnt say to do that. does it need to be done?

    I can't read that right now, I'm using my phone, but it'd. Be an extra step really, the sbf takes you to bone stock anyways. But it never hurts to double check by wiping again.

    ok well i held up on the dpad and it went into the bootloader, and it is showing up on rsd lite, but says n/a for imei/esn/meid..is that ok?


    ***edit ok well i said screw it and did it anyway, it finished, yet at the end said failed..but when it loaded back up, it had worked and its back to stock 2.01..so im guessing it worked? lol now for the rooting process..
