    The best way is located in the droid labs sub forum. You need to sbf flash the recovery and use the update. I'll post the link as soon as my kid gets off my computer.

    Go to XDA-Developers and download Super One Click Root to your computer. It's a little easier. It should only take about 5 minutes to root your phone.

    I was able to re-root my phone using the XDA dev site. Thank you so much. Will donate, I was rooted with z4 root but lost it with the update. How can I make sure I don't lose root with the next update? I'm sure there is a way but I'm a little lame when it comes to this stuff.

    Are you planing to unroot everytime there is an update available? Maybe you should find a rom that provides the updates instead. The Ultimate Droid rom is supposed to be putting out an update of there own that has Gingerbread in it by the end of the week. It will be U.D. version 2.5 If you go with a rom like that you will have Gingerbread long before Google and Verizon post an over the air update. That means that you wont have to unroot anymore just to get updates.

    Thanks for the response Ballmore. I didn't unroot, but was unrooted by the OTA update to FRG83D. I have the original Droid 1, is there a way to stop the updates so I don't lose root in the future.

    It's odd that you got an update while rooted in the first place. Maybe it had something to do with EASYRoot. I'm thinking that EASYRoot messed up some how and unrooted you which in turn prompted the update. With the Super One Click Root or others from XDA you should have no problems staying rooted and in turn not getting O.T.A. updates. One click root apps like Z4Root and EASYRoot have been reported to lose root and then you'd have to re-apply it and hope that it stuck. I have rooted a lot of phones for friends and I tried E.R. for a girl at work. It stuck for a couple of days and then I had to go back and do it again. Fortunately it stuck and I haven't had to worry about her phone since. Those apps are great apps but you would deffinately want to keep other options open like XDA and the "root your droid1 regaurdless of os verison."

    Updates always undo roots ? You are correct about the ROMS but rooted phones are always going to be unrooted by OTA updates.

    I should point out that I rooted using the full manual procedure and have always been notified off and unrooted by the OTA updates. Sure you can do more work to avoid this with ROMS and hacks but I'm talking about simple rooting

    The Root Droid 1/Any OS method works to reroot after the update. EasyRoot is garbage and doesn't work on FRG22D. z4root works on 22d but not currently on 83G. If you're comfortable hooking your Droid up to a computer to do SuperOneClick then go all the way and use MotoCache1's method -- it also gives you and fixes in memory a custom recovery image that allows you flash ROMs, themes, kernels, and make Nandroid backups which are essential if you want to preserve the current state of your Droid. it also allows ROM Manager to flash ClockworkMod Recovery onto your phone at any time in the future if you so wish for whatever reason and NOT have it replaced every boot.

    Clockwork has always blocked OTA updates for me and my wife is running rooted stock so the whole "always going to get unrooted" thing is incorrect. I'm not sure why some phones lose root and are running a custom recovery but it doesn't happen to everyone

    If your rooted and have stock recovery it wont block it. Now if our rooted and have Clockwork or sprecovery installed it will block it. it doesn't matter if our rooted or not.

    If you INSTALL the update you lose root. Recovery blocking the install means you don't update so you don't lose root.

    I do hit install at which point the phone boots into recovery and the update fails. You push the power button and reboot the phone from clockwork. I haven't lost root in either phone

    You haven't installed the update, you've blocked it. That's my point. If you actually update the OS with a stock update then you lose root. If you use your recovery image to block the update then you're not updating.

    We are both actually agreeing on the same point. Accepting the update as long as you have a custom recovery install will block the update and you will not lose root was my original point. I guess we misunderstood each other
