    there is a new way to do it. you just need to have the signed file and append a new super user file to it. then just update the phone, no need to use adb. just need the pc to append the file and put it on the droid.

    Too bad it won't work with the 2.0.1 update. When I try to download that .zip file, the phone tells me "cannot download. The content is not supported on this phone".

    I know this to be bogus because I downloaded the 2.0.1 update and installed it manually on my phone.

    You probably need download crutch or another prog that will allow any file type to be downloaded. Or you need to "allow browser to dl any type of file" in settings And by the way my root did not take. and still cant get it to work

    Do I need to unzip the file then rename and move it(eg renaming the unzipped file as update.zip) or just rename the file and move wo unzipping? I thought my root worked but I was wrong and I have tried 6-7 times today

    No don't unzip it, just rename it "update.zip". Be careful, sometimes windows won't let you see the .zip extension, so tons of people were renaming it update.zip.zip without knowing it. I'm using win7x64 and the file just shows up as "update", but I can tell that it's a zip file because the icon looks like a zip file. Thus I just renamed it to "update" and flashed it. Hope you can understand it's hard to explain.

    That seems to depend a lot on the link itself. When I emailed the file to myself, I got that error. When I clicked the link on alldroid I got that error. When I downloaded the file on a computer and re-hosted it on my own webspace, it downloaded fine.

    Is there a setting somewhere to select "Shut up and let me download whatever I want to"?

    You can tell the phone to download any file. You have to go into. A menu I can't remember where but some one will. Selecting option to " allowb browser to download any typ of file" you have to also have download crutch or a similar file manager that fools the phone into thinking it is an app that uses all file types

    That was easy as pie!

    Now to play, I wonder if I can put folders in the Apps tab now... *plays*

    However, I am kinda sad I won't be able to do OTA updates anymore. (Just barely though, I'll get over it fast! :)
