    So, I went thru the rooting process before the update came. Afterwards, I put the phone back to stock so I could get the 2.0.1 dl without any problems. Now, I can't re-root my phone (i did that because I thought flash was in that update which is the only reason I rooted the phone in the first place). I was trying to do wireless tethering and realized that I had no root access. Then...welll....here we are. HELP!!!!

    There are a ton of threads on rooting 2.1, pull down one of those. It's not the same process as rooting 2.0.1, it's a bit more complex. Have fun.

    I know HOW to root the droid. I did it before. However, after I downloaded verizon's update, I lost the root ability. THAT's actually what my question is.

    Do a search for RSD. There is a method where you can flash your phone back to 2.0.1 and you can root your phone all over again. Tons of posts on this....

    and make sure you carefully and slowly read the instructions especially the warnings....

    Exactly, and I answered your question. You want to re-root, and I told you how to go about finding instructions to root 2.1.... I dont get where the disconnect is.

    Would you like an explanation as to why you lost root?

    Oh.. Now I feel stuuuuupid. You DID answer my question. I guess droidilac just explained it better. UGGHHHHHHHH I don't even FEEL like going thru that crap again. My fingers are fat and my eyes are old. Looks like this'll be another late night.

    i had to root my 2.1 droid yesterday and it was easy following this video. go to the actual youtube page for it to see what you need to download first and for a step by step guide. everythings on the page. good luck! (i recommend watching the vid first just to know what to expect) :)

    uhhh yeah. I do need help. I mean, I REALLY don't feel like going thru all that again, but whatever. Is anyone going to get some flash cuz waiting on vzw is like waiting on GT5 for PS3. Sure, it's supposed to come out, and I'm sure someone somewhere is working on it, but it's never really going to happen. And, flash is the entire reason I rooted in the first place.

    There are a couple of ways to get rooted 2.1 back if you have stock 2.1
    A hard way: involves going back to 2.0.1 first
    an easy way: How-To Root your stock 2.1 Droid :)

    I picked the easy way.
