    If you used sbf and had to reactivate..you arent rooted. You can also enter recovery and see if sprecovery comes up.

    You can be rooted without sprecovery :) Not smart, but you can be.

    I would suggest going to the market and dling a free terminal client. Open it up, and type in su. If it goes to the next line with a # sign, your rooted.

    So what you see in this case if you have 2.1 installed on your Droid? Will you default to the stock recovery now?

    It will be as if you just bought your droid, with the exception of all your stuff still being present on your sd card.
