    Hey everybody! I'm Landfill27, and I'm just doing the intro thing.

    Ok, I'm also posting on here for help, because I NEED it. I'm running the first Droid from Verizon (Motorola A855), on 2.2.2. Here's the thing though. I'm trying to make it available to switch from Verizon to Metro PCS, so I need to root it. I have NO idea what I'm doing and if anybody would be so kind as to helping me out, I would greatly appreciate it. Also, I am running on a Mac, so that makes things more difficult. Thanks! I :heart: my dancedroid so I wanna make sure I can still use it!

    Welcome! Id recommend searching for a thread called "root d1 regardless of version" (might not be the exact name but its close) and that will give you everything you need to know to root.
