    I ran the Root process according to these directions. How to Root Your Motorola Droid Running 2.1

    I had no issues, everything seemed to run fine. But when I open my app tray, there is no app for Superuser Permissions. Also, under Firmware Version it says I'm running version 2.1-update1. Is that what it should say after being rooted? Before I rooted I took it back down to 2.0.1.

    Sorry if questions are inane, first time rooting. Any help is appreciated.

    I would downgrade to 2.0.1 and try it again. That tutorial was made before 2.1 came out. If you don't have that app then your phones not rooted.

    There is a good sticky on how to gain root access to 2.1 without going back to 2.0.1

    Tried to go back to 2.0.1, that is failing and my phone won't boot. In over my head now. Error message says failed flashing process.

    Did the error happen after a long while? Sometimes the error occurs and the flash worked. Obviously not so this time for you, but trying again is your best next step, if the flash appears to run its course.

    Tried a few times, just rebooted the computer to see if that fixes. Fails after about 7 minutes in. Doesn't go to authorization screen, so can't set up phone.

    Where does it go? I mean, does it loop through the boot animations, or does it boot but no activation?

    I got the phone back to 2.0.1, tried the root again and still no Superuser permissions app. Thanks for all the responses, will try this again tomorrow using the links offered. Awesome community, appreciate the help.
