    A 2.1 root would be nice, but there are ways around it, and there is a 2.1 (ESE81) .sbf that has root established.

    Martin,

    I have not seen the ese81 sbf in the few places that I frequent. Care to expound? And here's hoping you do not link to a thread on this site:)

    I kind of gambled that Droidmod would root 2.1. Looks like I was wrong. Oh well, life goes on with 2.1, It's still an awesome phone.

    Why does it make you sad? It doesn't change anything other than adding a few steps to those with stock 2.1. And it doesn't have anything to do with future Roms.

    In my opinion this was a silly announcement for the DroidMod team, it is only going to turn people away. To their defense though, this doesn't change anything.

    Ya, that's true. Guess I should shut up and root :)

    But from a noob's point of view it's more dangerous to flash the .sbf as opposed to if there was a way to root 2.1 right?

    come on hook; join the dark side again.
    I will admit that a rooted 2.1 IMO is smmother and better then any rom that I have ran so far. Its clean, quick, runs cooler, no lags.

    Come on Hook.......doooooooooo ittttttttttt. Follow Nike's advice.

    It's a double edge sword. If they don't make the announcement, they'll get the question OVER AND OVER.
    If they do make the announcement, it turns some people away.

    Either way, there's always a way to root :)
