    Use z4root to root your phone. Use DroidForms.net to learn what all else you can do after rooting...

    Droid Does, this was for a Droid 2. :)

    Oh, and there's another method outlined if you want to do a manual root -- also in my sig.

    You gave a link to the D1 thread in it. Explanation aside, this is probably the best one to give people:

    ;)
    The one that says "manually root your X/2/Fascinate". To unroot you flash SBF; simplest way to unroot. There are other methods as well.

    doodles, please remove your phone number from your phone stats and put your phone model in there instead? Otherwise you risk spam texts and calls coming your way ASAP.
