    My buddy sold me his droid recently and he had it rooted on 2.1 but when it updated to 2.2 it became unrooted, and now if i try to root it with 2.2 it wont do it, and it also wont unroot. Im using "Universal Androot"

    Anyone know how I can fix this? I want to root it on 2.2.

    Thank you very much!

    I took a look at the recommended link and..well..it makes me a little nervous. I'll do it if it's absolutely necessary but is there any other option?

    My phone seems to think (or at least universal androot) that it's already rooted. I feel like I should be doing something to fix that before doing anything...and then I could just use universal androot to root it.

    Why would my phone think it's rooted when it isn't? My friend told me when he updated to 2.2 from 2.1 it must have broken the "root" and now it's just kind of..stuck I guess. It's unrooted but thinks it is.

    That link is the only known way to root FRG22D. Any official update will break root, so it's that or nothing. It's a lot scarier looking than it is doing. :)

    So, even with the situation my phone is in I should be able to leave it alone and do the steps provided in the link and everything will be a-okay?

    Also id add that i have superuser on the phone still but it isnt working.

    If you do what MotoCache1 says, and there are some known issues and solutions in the thread if you run into any problems, you should have your phone rooted in under an hour, with SPRecovery. SPRecovery will let you flash new kernels for overclocking and features, including reduced voltage to save battery life, themes to pretty it up, custom ROMs, etc., as well as making nandroid backups so you can restore your phone's state in case anything goes haywire.

    We try our best to make this the first and last stop for all your Droid needs, along with our sister forums for the other Android phones and tablets! :)

    Let us know how it comes out and we'll try to help if any more is needed.

    Well I keep getting stuck in RSD lite after pressing start. It keeps failing. It's the error 7100 where it just says Failed Flashing. I tried all the FAQ suggestions and still nothing.

    0x7100 error under Windows 7 usually gets fixed if you move the SBF to the root of your C: drive. If that doesn't fix the problem there might be other solutions.

    Yeah, it's in the root of my C Drive right now. I also renamed it to MC1.SBF which got the start button to enable but it still fails. Also I don't know if this makes a difference or not but I don't seem to have anything of the window of "File Details" when I pick the file off the C Drive. I've tried deleting the error log too in the RSD Lite folder, Still nothing. Changed it to XP SP 3 Compatability too

    Interesting. I will look into this a bit later when I get home.

    Maybe try downloading the file again. And you are using RSD Lite 4.6, right?

    What teddy said. Sorry, I've been a lot busier than expected and had a crisis earlier with my phone and a CM nightly. Let us know if downloading the file one more time worked or not.

    This is when the more prevalent use of the MD5SUM protocol would be useful. :)
