    Hi! I'm new to to droid forums and also with my motorola droid. I have rooted and used a custom rom once before. Used droidmod before I installed the new 2.1. I was wanting to know how I would go about rooting with this new ese81 build. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    you need to flash the .sbf file from 2.0.1. at this time there is not possible way to directly root 2.1.

    no go here and follow the instructions if you want to this. please be patient this will brick your phone if you unplug it during the flash.

    Done. It worked. Back to 2.0.1. Thanks! Now I need to know if I can just root as normal with droidmod. Then instead flashing the droidmod rom just download rom manager and flash ultimate droid?

    K. That's what I thought. Just had to be sure before I did it cause I've never done it before. I've rooted and flashed droidmod before but never used any other roms. I think I'm gonna do the ultimate droid rom. From the research I've done it seems its a good rom and I see the developer is always updating it to improve it. Thanks for all the help!

    Did this end up working to use droidmod to root and then just using the rom manager to download a new rom? I'm about to do this myself.

    Also, for doing the sbf method, at what point can you let go of the d-pad up? Thanks!
