    I was thinking about putting a ROM on my Droid. I have the 2.1 update on there already. Can I ROOT my Droid with the 2.1 so I can install a custom ROM? I found a video on YouTube that stated that I would have to go back to 2.0.1 to do this. I would like a second opinion on this before I start. Thanks for all the help. :motdroidhoriz:

    i dont think you can root it straight from 2.1 to a new rom... that ive seen yet. you can go back and still get all the features from 2.1 like baseband upgrade n all the other obvious ones.

    wish i knew how to create roms instead of leaching off others work..

    I tried to rebuilt the sbf with the recovery only. It is experimental flash and has not been tested yet, use at your own risk: DOWNLOAD

    Edit: It's already done actually before, search "sprecovery sbf"
