    Im sorry, i meant to post Universal Androot. Im looking into rooting my D-inc and installing Froyo since the 2.2 Froyo ota isnt out yet. Is there a specific link directly to a Universal Androot apk for D-inc running 2.1?

    Personally, I would suggest exploring some of the ROM and hacking section of this forum to read up a bit on the different ROMs, but also to get an idea about not just what you can do, but things you should be aware of in case something goes wrong.

    Now that you're rooted, you can do some really cool stuff, but you also have the potential to get into some trouble, so be careful and make sure you are up to speed on things like making backups.

    ROM Manager is a good way to get started to find ROMs and will also help with things like backups.

    Out of curiosity, did Universal Androot install a custom recovery? If it did, which one?

    if you rooted the Droid X i dont think you can run different roms unless somebody cracked the bootloader, thought the droidx and droid 2 still wasnt cracked yet

    I'm wondering if rooting using this way (Easy Root/Universal Androot), is it the same as using the traditional way (Open Recovery, etc.)? Or are there some differences, however subtle, that we should know about and might affect some later hacking efforts?

    I've been wondering the same thing. I haven't been able to find a lot of detailed information about what these apps are actually doing, and I have seen some posts from Easy Root users who have seen some odd behavior, particularly in recovery.
