    I'm on an LG Ally from Verizon.
    I rooted it last december. But then froyo 2.2 came out and I updated to it. Now when I try to overclock or use other apps that require root, they don't work.
    But I can still back up my apks using supermanager which requires root...?

    How do I reroot?
    I looked it up a while back and all I found was that its really hard and that any little mistake can brock your phone.
    Is that true?
    Is there any guides that won't brick my phone?

    I just got my make due d1 from ebay today and it was rooted, but as soon as it was activated I got the prompt for the upgrade not knowing I would lose root. Its good though because I want to learn for myself and wouldn't have trusted what the previous owner had done anyway.

    You should be able to pick up a root app called Z4root on the market. Its a one click rooting process for most Droid phones.

    Z4Root isn't available in the market, I just looked. You can get it at XDA. Go there or just google z4root. It will take you right to it.

    I've already used z4root and universal androot.
    When I try to unroot it just says failed.
    And other times it will just say its still trying to do it and it will go on for like 8 hours.

    Just use this. A little more complicated, but I think you learn alot more anyway.
