    I am rooting my wife's phone from the offical verizon update 2.1, now when i rooted my droid i was on 2.01 so rooting was a bit different.

    I have SP Recovery flashed on her droid, if i use rom mgr on her phone and download 5.0.6.2 will the install root her phone as well or do i need to root first? Thanks

    You wont be able to use rom manager quite yet because it requires root access. But since you have SPrecovery you can install a Custom Rom which will then give her phone root. So you can begin using Rom Manager

    You need to install a cyanogen via the update.zip method. After flashing the sprecovery you dont have root access, you have the ability to flash a custom rom. You can go to the following link and click download stable mod to get the update.zip file
