is it possible? i want to know if it is possible to root with 2.1 on the droid.
Not currently if you are running the "Official 2.1 ESE81" . You have to go back to a 2.0.1 image and root that, then you can "upgrade" to a rooted version of the 2.1 ESE81 OS.
AFAIK no it isnt, you have to flash the 2.0.1 SBF file with RSDlite.
Im not going to post a link to it because theres atleast three other threads on the first page of this section with the link in it, go look for it
Correct. I do not want to post any links pointing to ther sites. Just google "how to root on 2.1" you will get hits that explain. Indeed you must go back to 2.0.1 in order to root then "upgrade" to another ROM. Good luck! I will be doing the very same thing later this week as I am not happy with the 2.1 release client. It is a toss up atm about Ultimate droid or BB. I'll have to compare the 2 and make a choice.
2.1 root possible yet?
I'm at 2.1 and would like to get root access so Ican use the Barnacle wifi tether. but I believe root access with 2.1 is not available as of today. Is this still correct?
I do believe there is a way to get back to 2.0.1 and root that. I'm in the same place, but haven't taken the time to look into it.
Correct, root on 2.1 is not possible. Reverting back to 2.0.1, rooting, then re-upgrading to a rooted copy of 2.1, however, is possible. So I guess you could say that rooting 2.1 IS possible, it's just a circuitous route to get there.
cant get rsdlite to recognize the vzw_A855 file, start button stays grey. any suggestions?
I'm interested in rooting and have found several sites that give similar instructions on how to do so. My questions are, what all do I need to back-up prior to doing this process, and is it simple to go back to the stock build? I'm not asking for a how-to, I can find those myself on google, I just want an opinion from people who are experienced in this type of operation. Thanks in advance for you help.
