    I used superoneclick, it's not a app but software for a PC, follow the instructions carefully, it might take a few tries to root your phone. It took me three attempts to root my D1 but only one the root my friends. Make sure you select rageagainstthecage as your rooting method, its on the upper right hand corner.

    Yes. I didn't do that and that's probably why it was harder for me. You can unroot using superoneclick, accept the update and then root it.

    No, you don't update if rooted unless you install a custom ROM which is built from a certain FW so you would be updated automatically due to flashing the ROM. If you update via Motorola update that will break root and you will need to root again. Unless you just want stock rooted Droid, then yes you need to unroot, update, root again.

    you have to register at xda forums. download the super one click file at the bottom of the page. find the file under downloads. extract all. connect usb cable. do not mount SD card. make sure debugging is checked on. Find the file you extracted and double click the super one click file. It's the android with the red glow around it. that will open the folder to root phone. before you click root, up in the top right make sure rageagainstthecage exploit is selected. click Root and that should do it. It was that easy for me. Not sure if it will work for 2.2.2 I was on 2.2.1 when I used it but you can give it a try
