    I am running Froyo 2.2 at the moment and just received a warranty replacement phone that I need to return to stock. Unfortunately the only computer I have right now is my laptop running Ubuntu 10.04 and cannot run RSD lite on it. Does anyone know how I can unroot my old Droid and root my new one without that software? have not had to mess with a new phone since 2.0.1 was current. I have tried using ROM Manager to revert to stock but the install fails every time...

    If you have a Windows disk, you can install Virtual Box and install a Windows virtual machine, and do it from there. Be sure you install the full version of Virtual Box and not the OSE version from the repository, just go to their website and download the .deb file.

    I have tried to DL the RSD Lite zip file and run it using the wine program from the Synaptic Package Manager but it won't recognize the zip file as an executable because its not from the software center.

    In order for DMupdater to work it appears I have to purchase the $20.00 market update! can I get it any other way? It was free six months ago. $20.00 is outrageous!

    Root Android 2.1 the Easy Way with New DMUpdater


    On 07.30.10, In Apps, Root (unlock), Tips, by Kellex

    [​IMG]
    The DroidMod team has been quiet over the last few months working behind the scenes, but trust me when I say it appears as if they are gearing up to explode back to the forefront. We just received a beta version of their DMUpdater app which easily roots Android 2.1 on a variety of devices including the Droid 1, Droid X and EVO. Yes I just said “easily roots” 2.1 for the Droid 1. No more SBF file, no more RSD Lite, and no more Motorola USB drivers. I guess we’ll need to update our rooting guide, again. And I’ll let that soak in for a second…
    Just be warned that this is definitely a beta version of the app and is by no means official. I’ve tested this twice on my Droid 1 and ran into zero problems.
    Update: To clarify, I have not tested this on the Droid X or EVO. I have no idea if it will in fact root either but have been told it “should.” I only said “root” there, not root and recovery image. Until I get further confirmation, Droid 1 owners should probably be the only testers.
    Your comments and shared experiences will be greatly appreciated.
    *Warning* – This will void your warranty, possibly brick your device, and who knows what else. We are not liable should any of those things happen. Enjoy!
    Download: DMUpdater-candidate-for-version-12.apk (alt link) (alt link2)
    Instructions…
    *The process outlined is for rooting the Droid 1.
    1. Download and install the new DMUpdater. Open it.
    2. When prompted, tap the button to “Root my phone.”

    3. When prompted to give access to DMUpdater, tap “Allow.”

    4. DMUpdater will then prompt you to flash SPRecovery onto your phone. Allow it to.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    5. Once that finishes, you are rooted 2.1 with a custom recovery image.
    6. Close DMUpdater and enjoy your new phone!
    Your next step is to boot into recovery (Power+X) and create a full nandroid backup. From there, prepare to start flashing custom ROMs, having fun with Froyo and so much more.
    Huge props are in store for the entire DroidMod team, Camel, trevorjay, sgx (tax), [mbm], and birdman for getting the root method to work. Visit DroidMod.org for the future support and an official release of this.
    You can also find them in IRC at #droidmod.

    Now that I think about it... I donated to DMupdater when it changed from SMupdater! Why am I asked to buy it again?
