    Great guide, worked easily once I had the proper files and apps. I had zero knowledge of linux and was able to complete this in 15 min.

    I have some tips for those struggling ones I ran into. I have astro file manager, astro was not extracting droid2roor.rar correctly for some reason it kept extracting 0 bytes and terminal was not locateing file because it really was not there. So I grabbed unrar (free) from the market and extracted it to my sd card into the root location not a folder. I got better terminal from the market it let's u copy paste all the command lines. So I just had my browser up copy pasting from here to terminal. Now im takeing screenshots of my phone :D...

    I get everything to get the #. but when I do the mount command. It gives the mount options. Should the rw come before or after it the -o?

    Flipp you need to wait longer for the progress to complete. That was my problem, but then I did it and waited longer and once it showed the forked part it was complete.

    Another big tip is that the file names and whatnot are case sensitive. If it says capital put that.

    If I root using this method, can I then use Rom Manager to flash back to stock 2.2 like I did with my Droid 1 before I sent it back?
