    I have 2.1 rooted which I got from combining the two update.zip files as listed on droid-life. I installed barnacle and have the su ninja but it seems like su isn't working because when I try to run barnacle I get a permission denied message. Is there something I have to do to get su to allow barnacle to work? If so, if someone could tell me exactly what to do I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

    Any other apps that require root permissions work?

    Don't know, I don't have any other apps that require them. If you tell me one, I can try it. I've got the little ninja guy, but nothing listed when I open that up. Is there a command line that I need to type?

    It sounds like you're not rooted.

    I just recently installed Barnacle without any issue and it's working great.

    I used RSDLite to get back to 2.0.1. Then I combined the 2.1 update.zip + root.zip to form the 'new' update.zip, copied it over to the root of my SDCard, rebooted while holding X to get into the stock recovery, apply update.zip and rebooted the phone. At this point I had the little ninja icon, which when opened up, showed nothing but a blank black screen. Went into the market, installed Barnacle, fired it up and the first thing it asked me to do was grant permission. Hit the 'remember' box, select Allow....and that was it. I didn't even need to close down Barnacle and re-open like it seems other apps that require permission do.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too. I'll just try to start over from the beginning.

    Wifi tether app (turns Droid into a wifi hotspot) that runs on a rooted phone, and does not require a special kernel, like some other wifi tether apps require.

    As far as I know, Barnacle won't function if you have a modified kernel installed. It only works with stock kernels. I had the same problem so I installed a stock kernel and it worked. If you want to maintain the kernel you are using, you can use the free app used for wifi tethering with modified kerenels. Here is the link where you can install the latest version: Downloads - android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Have ninja superuser but it seems I don't have su. After I reverted back to 2.01 I installed update file for su. Then the phone asked to update to 2.1. I thought it was okay to get su with 2.1. It seems I don't have su and wondering what to do? Thanks for any help.

    Revert back to 2.0.1. Do NOT accept the update and do NOT root your phone with the traditional 'update-root.zip' method. Instead what you'll do is download the two files mentioned here and follow those directions.

    You will end up with a Droid that:
    -has the 2.1 update
    -has root access
    -has the ability to install/run applications that need a root access...like Barnacle, for example.

    It's honestly that easy.
