    dude...Im dumb and I just did it today. There is a ton of info on how to root your 2.2 frg22d on here. A lot of people have the link in their sigs..

    or you can google it..

    Droid 1 root not matter what your OS is.

    you will find the detailed instructions on doing so...its really pretty simple (even though it is a lot of reading)

    I'm on CM6 and yes, I like it a LOT more than stock. It's stock-like but it does, well, every last thing you can imagine that the hardware is capable of and a heck of a lot more.

    And then it does even more.

    CM6? CyanogenMod 6.

    Latest Version - CyanogenMod Wiki

    Download 6.0 and the proper Google app pack from the bottom of the page and install both as update.zip packages.

    Have you followed the instructions in the first link I gave you? If so, you're using SPRecovery. If not, RSD Lite will be no help to you.

    If you're using SPRecovery, I'd recommend you read part of the first link in my signature (the first and second posts) and see if that gives you a better idea of what you're doing. In particular, the video I linked to in the first post will show you exactly what to do.

    Remember to make your backups! :)

    There's a chart at the bottom. Follow it and it'll guide you. You'll want the HDPI, I believe.
