    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.

    I have a very slow computer. Noticed that one file was 130 mb. Before I download these files and do this just curious if their was a way to do it from my phone without havin to use my home computer?
