    Hello my name is slawson [zfxp on irc]
    This is my root guide, how i've rooted every droid i've had so far.
    This works with NO COMPUTERS NEEDED!

    Also works on
    2.0.0, 2.0.1, 2.1, 2.2

    A. Download and install "Universal androot" http://bit.ly/aa4jxJ

    B. Install and run "Universal androot", click "root me"
    B1. If all goes well it will say you're rooted.

    C. Reboot your phone.

    D. Open Market find, and install "Rom Manager"
    D1. After Installed open rom manager, and grant su access, now click "Flash recovery rom" it will be the first option in the list.
    D2. it will say Recovery flashed after all options have been selected.
    D3. Download your favorite rom, and copy it to the root of your sd card.

    E. Reboot into Recovery
    E1. Wipe data/clear cache
    E2. Install zip from sdcard

    F. ENJOY YOUR FLASHED DROID!

    Thanks goes out to all the devs who helped make this happen!

    Didn't work. Haha I think I'm stuck. Can't root using a computer because I'm on a mac, and all these one touch roots don't work with my model. Any advice? :S

    I must throw in my two cents. While these one-click methods do work, I have seen quite a few threads about people having problems with these apps; mainly losing root later on and only being able to flash the SBF file to get back to working

    While I know the method I suggest is only on windows for now, these apps are to be applied with caution.

    I still suggest finding a friend or a relative who has a PC to do this rooting process to get it done right.
