    I have rooted my droid on 2.0.1 but I wanted to know if there was a program that would load custom roms or root it to 2.1 without having to flash it do all those steps!

    Im pretty sure there is not a program right now that will do it for you. But when and if you go to 2.1 you'll have to do a data and cache wipe

    the only program that i am aware of that roots your device for you was the old sholes roms. those dont get updated anymore but i rooted my droid to 2.1 in february. its not as hard as the 2.1 root thread that is stickied makes it out to be. i use Ultimate Droid as my 2.1 rom (v7.8 because i dont like the 3d launcher and was buggy when i used it) ill link you to his threads which tell you simply how to get them running on your phone.

    If you are already rooted on 2.01, just load a 2.1 ROM. It will already be rooted. Follow the instructions though, as you will need to delete data and cache (maybe more?). Perform a backup using Astro, Titanium Backup, MyBackup or something along those lines.

    *Edit* If you go with http://www.droidforums.net/forum/adamz/29999-rom-tgz-smoked-glass-v6-0-03-15-android-2-1-ese53.html It installs a lot like Sholesmod/Droidmod does, asking you a bunch of questions.
