At the urging of friends, I have given serious thought to rooting my Droid. Needless to say, I'm nervous as all hell about bricking my phone. I've had my Droid since mid-December and have never done anything like this to the Droid or any other phone. So, I don't care if it's been posted in another thread or another forum or whatever. I want clear, concise clarification to my questions rather than second hand questions from another thread. dancedroid Question 1: Since I've never rooted and I have Android 2.1, I read some where that to root to 2.2, I have to go back to the early versions of 2.0 for a while? Is this true? Question 2.1: I'm not extremely computer savvy so I want a GREAT and PRECISE guide to doing this properly and hopefully a video to go along. Where can I find one? Anyone have a direct link? Question 2.2: Are there any guides that would explain how to root, get to 2.0 (if #1 is true), and then get to 2.2? I want one big guide to help me from start to finish, not 2-3 guides. Question 3: Is rooting illegal? I know it voids the warranty but is there any punishment if caught with a rooted phone? Thanks, guys. Hopefully I get enough responses here to be able to root by tomorrow.
