    Yes, as soon as you log into your google account your contacts will reload. It has no affect on your account.

    OMG!!!!! It works! Thank you for this. It only took ten minutes from start to finish. I rooted my Droid a week ago and kept running into a syntax error while trying to flash my recovery from the command prompt. I never did figure that out even though I am good with Linux. This works and I'm on 2.1 with root, a terminal window and anything I want to do.:icon_ banana:

    Im getting my motorola droid soon from telus, and I was just checking out some hacks. First off all, could Telus have blocked me from rooting my phone? Also, the first link (step 1) is broken. Lastly, if Telus does manage to block the rooting, could my phone be bricked. I dont want a brand new phone bricked. Thanks.
