    First of all i have to say that i'm finally rooting my good ole Verizon Droid 1.
    Funny thing is as much as i've look for it on youtube and here. they never mention how to root for people who have already updated to Froyo 2.2.2.
    Or they do mention something about using RSD but i have a MAC OSX and there seem to be no replacement for the program.
    I want to root my droid 1 so please community, help me become one of you and if you like, recommand me some great custom roms that i can install.
    Thanks a bunch guys

    I tried some search on it.
    Question i have is though is either all of these either have 2.1 update to start and nothing on froyo (2.2.2)

    And on top of that, they say things like RSD for windows but not for MAC.
    I'm still searching though.

    I've heard if you run boot camp, the RSD lite method (sometimes) works. Otherwise, just borrow a friend's PC.

    SuperOneClick, set CPU, Rom manager, and GPA 15. Now I really like my Droid 1! (with Netflix).
