    Is there an updated root guide for the motorola droid? The update.zip link's broken in the sticky post, and there's a few typos I think.
    "adb" isn't even a command in windows to be recognized by command prompt as far as I know. I'm a bit confused here now.

    Anyone? I dont understand how everyone in that forum is successful. That's crazy. How in the hell are they running those commands in command prompt? That looks more like linux/terminal commands, Not sure why the guide says do that in command prompt... heh

    I believe that guide is out of date. ADB = Android DeBugging or something of that nature. You have to installl ADB shell on your pc, and yes they a linux commands as android is linux based. If you want to root and start modding your phone I suggest Math3w's guide to rooting. Can be done 100% on your phone. Good luck.

    Btw, if you brick your phone, is there a recovery method?
    Also, if I wanted to go back to 2.0.1, is there a way for that too?

    Have a link to that?
    Nvm, found it. Thanks
    Nevermind, I need a link to his guide. All I see is before you root and after you root threads.

    Quick question, after rooting, is it already going to be 2.1? Or just a rooted version of 2.0.1? I'd like to get 2.1 after rooting too =p
