    I am wondering if anyone has gained root access running FRG22D, and what method was used?

    Thank you for the help... I will give it a try... Do you think there will be a one tap root for this soon? What are your thoughts on the one tap root methods?

    I wouldn't do it. I did it once when I first rooted last week and I just had problems. You get a lot more aptitude if you use his method, using RSD Lite and SDRecovery and such. You learn more and it works much better.

    The one touch methods and easy root have been causing a lot of problems. Many have experienced not having superuser permissions and not being able to flash an alternate recovery. You will learn so much more and be much happier with your phone if you follow either my guide in my signature or Abe's.

    Need stock FRG22D build.prop

    if some one could please either copy and paste it on paste bin or zip and email me the file from stock non-rooted OTA i would be greatly in your debt, it seams the finger print changed from frg01b to the new one, and i am redoing my market fix for rooted users, but i need the finger print from the stock OTA to finish.

    Does this require you to wipe your phone?

    No sir!
    It'd replaced recovery image, installed SU and Busybox. You would still have same OS but w/ SU access.
    For me rooting phone is to be able to install custom roms so there is no point of keeping VZ craps
    Happy rooting.

    Making sure...

    So all my contacts will be intact, all my apps, and their settings and my phone number and all right. Sorry but I have a lot of stuff on my droid and I don't want to take a risk. Thanks for the quick reply!

    Root Droid 1 WORKS! What is the timing of step #10

    Thank you Abe21599. Your method, Root Droid 1 - regardless... worked after a few tries on FRG22D.

    Step #10, the crux of the process, still leaves me wondering a bit. I'm still uncertian of the timing of starting RSDlight and pressing the up button. I did it and it worked, but I'm betting others would find the process easier if the timing of that step were explained just a bit more.

    "Half full... Half empty... regardless, it's evaporating.

    The reason you have to hold up is because you need to catch the reboot so you can complete the sbf write with a PASS. Otherwise it will boot into the os. Once it boots past recovery the FRS will take over and undo what you did by flashing the sbf file.
    I know only because it happened to me.
