    Okay, I did the update for the FRG22D while I was rooted. I had used Easyroot to root after my initial update to FRG01B. Now my Wireless Tether won't work. I went into Easyroot to unroot but every time I try it initially tells me that unroot is completed and I need to reboot but before I can reboot it comes up and says I am already rooted.

    Any solutions?

    Stop using easy root and use rsd lite for windows users or sbf_flash for linux users. Problem solved :)

    prob cause you are not rooted. i read that the frg22d breaks root so you gotta either downgrade back and reroot or wait until the new version of froyo is rooted

    How can I go back to FRG01B?

    Also, when I try to root with Easyroot it says I am rooted then it won't let me unroot. So I tried to use UniversalAndroot to root and it said I was rooted so when I tried to unroot with that program it said "Failed. You still have the power."

    Is there any way to actually unroot or make it look like I am not rooted or do I have to just wait for Easyroot to come out with a fix?

    I did exactly the same thing as you, Crayzee Joe... Applied the update to an Easyrooted Droid, and ended up with a broken root. Couldn't re-root, couldn't unroot.

    On Moto's recommendation, I followed his guide:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/rescue-squad-guides/74028-root-droid-1-regardless-os-version.html

    ..and ended up with a properly rooted frg22d. It's a little intimidating at first glance, but Moto's guide is VERY well written, and nothing is particularly challenging if you're patient and read ahead before trying it. It works.

    I got an email from unstable apps this morning and they told me that they are working on the rooting method for FRG22D on the D1 and think that the same method used on the D2 will work. I think it will only be a few days so I'm just gonna chill and wait for them to fix it.

    I think if I were you I'd look at an alternate method of rooting. Unstable apps easy root isn't quite what we first thought it while I can't say for certain there is a feeling that this was ripped off by another developer. Just something to think about.

    One click root apps are extremly unrelieable, Use link 3 in my sig to properly root.

    I have the same exact problem. I wrote an email to the guys over at unstable apps and I have yet to hear anything back. I think I am going to do what you are doing and play the waiting game. I really miss my phone the way it was. I had it overclocked (running fast as hell) and used the wireless tethering all the time. I feel like I downgraded big time with the last OTA update.

    Then root it the right way, so you never have to worry about it again, and so that you have control over your phone now and forever more.

    Root Droid 1 - regardless of OS version

    If you ever decide you want to flash a new ROM you'll end up doing this anyway, so why not do it now and be done with it? :)

    So here is a question. If I rooted with easyroot and have been able to subsequently flash roms with rom manager should I consider all systems go. or should I somehow undo everything and start form scratch with sprecovery?

    Hopefully all systems go. Unfortunately ClockworkMod Recovery (your recovery image) and ROM Manager, when used together, might suffer from an epic fail. At that point you may have to flash SPRecovery on. That day may never come, though, so good luck and let 'er rip! :)
