    I apologize in advance if this has been discussed in a previous post. I am trying to root a friend's droid 1 but for the life of me cant seem to be able to do it. I have tried z4 root, easy root, universal androot but with no success. I have read that they wont work on 2.2. I have also tried MotoCache1's method to root and made it to the very last step and it aborted. Can anyone give me any tips on how to do this in an easy way? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am really dumbfounded at this point.

    Google "superoneclick"...or I've done it for you...

    [APP]SuperOneClick v1.5.5 (Root, Unroot, Enable Non-Market App, Get UNLOCK code) - xda-developers

    However, I'd still recommend trying MotoCache's Root Droid 1 Regardless of OS because one-click root apps are known to cause problems.

    You can always use sbf to get back if you mess anything up, so I guess try SuperOneClick first and hopefully you'll have success. IIRC, that's the only one-click app that will root FRG83D.
