    What's going on fellas? I've been messing with my droid since the day I got it but they claim the grass is greener on the other side so I'm looking forward to join the rooting process. Any help, advice, or guidence will be appreciated greatly

    Welcome to the forum and here my suggestion.

    Anyone wanting to root should read the following links beforehand (I cannot stress this enough). These are the post that helped me learn and understand why I wanted to root to install those nice ROMs, Kernels, & Themes. The poeple that put these together realy know their stuff so read them.


    What You Need Know About Rooting
    Learning the Lingo
    Using RSD Lite to flash an SBF file -- correctly
    FRG01B OTA enables a feature to undo custom recovery partitions

    After feeling comfortable and still want to root the below post should be use
    Root Droid 1 - regardless of OS version

    To Overclock the kernel (if your feeling good)
    Overclock 101

    After rooting and there are issues with the Droid 1 and need to take it in for repair/replacement use one of these guides to unroot the phone and take off SPRecovery. Both are great guides.
    Unroot/Back to Stock (2.2) Without .sbf or RSD Lite - Droid 1 Only
    SBF to root and to unroot

    This is good info and my advice is for anyone wanting to root, read, read, read somemore. The last thing anyone wants is an unworkable Droid. Of cource the rescue squad and other droid fourmers are here to help in case you get into trouble.

    It's really, really tough to brick a droid.
