    I think there is an app called easy root or 1 click root or something like that but I have never tried it.

    With the latest Verizon update abt only two methods will work when rooting the droid1,using the above(root regardless what version of android) and super-one-click (the older version).If she is on 2.2.1 easy root nor z4root will not work! In order to root her Droid you need to go to xda developers dwnld super one click,then dwnld the Motorola drivers for your PC ie...32 or 64, research the steps, it's easy to do it tells you what you need and gives you links as well, once you root and have super user permission, make sure you install a recovery (can use rom manager to do this nut may take several tries) the I recommend doing a nandroid backup before anything else you do. Once that's done I would also flash rzrecovery, this will drop off clockwork which at times don't work (it likes to spaz out from time to time) and use rzrecovery most devs are recommending this recovery with there roms. Sorry for the long post,but hope it helps.

    rck7,
    Can you hook up a link for RaidZero's RZrecovery? For some reason I can't get the link to connect for me.. otherwise if you can go to Droid hacks in this forum hit custom roms scroll to raidzero hit that and go to stickies and abt 3or4 posts down and you'll see the post on updated rs recovery. You want the latest which is 2.0.3 there is a tutorial abt how to install and all your links are there. By the way, his kernals are great to. Fast,smooth,and decent battery life to.
