    Yes, major advantages. Nandroids and custom kernels, ROMs, themes come to mind. You don't need to unroot or go back if you're on 2.1. Just follow the standard SBF flashing procedure from here

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hacking-faqs/39254-sbf-root-unroot.html

    I also have a video tutorial if you're interested. PM for the link if you're interested.

    Go to Unstable Apps - Mobile apps for a mobile world if you still want it. The DroidMod team Index of / might have a version of DMUpdater that would help you out too, and that's free.

    I have Rom Manager installed with Clockwork recovery. Would I need to uninstall it?

    Use ADB or a terminal emulator to manually uninstall SU permissions and see if it'll root/unroot you. If it won't, you'll be stuck using the new SPRecovery flash method as soon as MotoCache1 has it perfected.

    I'd suggest it if you're having problems (and even if you're not, but I'm picky ;)) or to head possible problems off in the first place, but if you're NOT having problems you should keep it.

    Didn't know that was an option. Good to know in case anyone else is having the problem. :)

    Just to clarify, did you use the Easy Root method to accomplish root on your Droid?

    No, you hit the root me button and then you install busybox and you're done -- unless you're running 2.2 and your bootloader got updates to 2C. 7C., in which case you may have to go through the whole route of flashing SPRecovery anyway. Motorola/Verizon updated the bootloader on some phones during the FRG01B update, and this bootloader discards any attempts at changing it (ROM Manager/ClockworkMOD Recovery) unless it's done in a very specific way.

    How do you figure out which bootloader you have?
