    Don't use that. Since you have the OTA use link #3 in my sig.

    I rarely do this but disregard the quoted statement. You don't want to use Easy Root.

    This is the real deal: Click http://downloads.droidmod.org/DMUpdater-12.apk directly from your phone’s browser, or launch DMUpdater if you already have it installed.

    link 3 in my sig is the only way to disable the recovery partition from being overwitten every reboot.

    Actually I just read on the DroidMod site, DMU12 won't root 2.2 yet. Exploid isn't included in it, but the next release will. Go with what tallica said.
