    Hey all! Thanks in advanced for any help that you might offer!

    First of all I am new to the Moro Droid, but not new to computers and tech stuff.

    Having said that, I just bought a Moto Droid, with the intent to exchange it for the HTC Incredible once it comes out. I do however want to root my brand new droid while I have it. (Should i get the new incredible? I want to have root access)

    The droid is stock running the OTA 2.1, I would like to root it and I am confused on which rooting method should I use? Can someone point me to a step by step method?

    Thanks again for all the help!

    Follow this guide, it is sooo much easier than the one above.

    I can't say either won't, but it is very unlikely if you just follow the guide.

    I don't see a link JCo352. I'm just curious on what you have. I rooted well before the 2.1 OTA and could stand to research the process.

    Edit: NM I see...

    I wouldn't if I was going to exchange it, but not because I think I would mess it up.

    I think that guide is better, for people that want a custom Rom, but even pete has you covered for the stock one.
