    Hey all,
    I did the update.zip method of root access about a month ago on my Droid. After rebooting and installing, there was no SuperUser App in my app tray, so I assumed it did not work. I have since updated to 2.1 and gone about my business as if I didn't have root access. However, today I installed the AntiVirus app from the market. After running a scan, the only issue found was in my settings. The AntiVirus claims that I do have root access. I was wondering if there were a way to get the SuperUser App to appear, because otherwise I have no root functions, but I haven't tried anything in terminal yet just because I am not sure what is going on. Any fixes/suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    If you had root access with 2.0 (although it doesn't sound like you did) and updated to 2.1 then that would have taken away your root access. There is a sticky at the top of the page that will walk you through getting root access for 2.1
