    Hey guys, quick question, just got sent a new replacement Droid from Verizon due to my other droids faulty headphone jack. It showed up with FRG22D installed, I previously had used easy root to root my older Droid, but have not been able to find a definite answer anywhere I have looked, Is it possible yet to root FRG22D??? Easy root's website states that it cant root it as of yet.

    Only way as far as I know -- is to flash a custom recovery which will allow you to reinstall the superuser tools.

    It seems FRG22D fixed the hotplug exploit used by both Universal Androot and Easy Root, so those tools do not work. The author of EasyRoot is apparently looking into it, but unless there is a new exploit discovered I don't think it will be possible to use these tools anymore.
