    I can't seem to find it anywhere in the thread I just glanced over it so I could have missed this, this wont put a stock recovery back on my Droid right? and since it wont should I worry about stock recovery and if so can you point me to the right thread? I'm trying to get a replacement Droid, my phone has sensors that are all screwed up and not working properly I keep getting muted while in call and its rebooting randomly.

    Silly question I suppose, but I figured I'd ask it anyway.

    If I used Motocache1's method to rooting as in this thread:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-labs/74028-root-droid-1-regardless-os-version.html

    Will your method still replace SPR with stock recovery? I know Motocache1's method disables froyo's ability to overwrite custom recovery systems. I'm just wondering if the update.zip file will still bring me back to stock or not.

    I ask this due to my issue with my mini usb port (it's starting to break) and I may not be able to flash sbfs soon :/

    Just got my new, er, factory refurbished replacement droid. Do I have to wait for all the apps to download before I root again or can I root before everything is downloaded? Presumably titanium will restore everything, right?

    Current Phone Model:
    Motorola XT1103 (Nexus 6)
    With the release of Froyo, I have found that the best way to proceed (with a 'new' phone and/or after a factory data reset) is to sign back into your google account and then LEAVE THE PHONE ALONE. Leave it alone still after the sync icon goes away. Do NOT even TOUCH your phone again until you have the "xxx Applications Restored" message in your notification bar. This will lead to a more harmonious outcome.

    good luck

    for the clockwork recovery guide, can we keep it plugged in or does it have to stay out?

    If your battery is sufficiently charged, you don't HAVE to keep it plugged in, and you should get through the process just fine. But I tend to like to play things more conservatively there, and keep it plugged in as much as possible. Those recovery "programs" suck battery life pretty good, so if you get stuck for whatever reason, or have to leave it for a bit or anything along those lines, your battery could drop pretty quick, and then you're potentially stuck completely with no phone until you find somewhere to plug in again and get it charged up to the point where it's usable.

    But, disclaimers aside, generally speaking you should be fine if you start out with a full charge or close to it!

    Edit... did I understand your question right?

    Well, if you don't see the Superuser app in the app drawer, that's a good start. You can download a root-only app to make sure it doesn't work, as well.

    ok, thanks for making this guide jntdroid. i was sick of all this rooting crap and couldnt put up with it anymore. id rather be back to the crappy slow unrooted droid and be safe:D it was decent while it lasted. its nice that i actually found out what it meant to be rooted. also, can i delete all the .zips from the roms and kernels and themes from being rooted off my sd and also can i delete the update.zip now that i did it?

    If you feel so lead, yes! :)

    Edit: Though I'd hold onto the update.zip from this thread in case you need it in a pinch or just need a clean restore for whatever reason.
