    Could someone please help mewith rooting my Moto Droid1. Im new to the andriod. Ive already attempted to transfer the update.zip file to my phone but i might have madea a mistake because it didnt root my phone. I had the superuser app when i finished but when i opened it i got a blank screen. I tried to us an app that required a rooted phone just too verify whether my phone was rooted or not but the app said my phone wasnt rooted. I uninstalled tye superuser app. I would appreciate it if anyone could explain the proccess to me or could give me any advice, thanks.

    What is your reason for rooting? I could give you a step by step process that works for 2.2.1 and 2.2.2
