    Is it safe to assume that z4root will not work after the update? I had unrooted my D1 for the update and now it appears that z4root will not work.

    Doesn't using a one click root not give you a custom recovery? I would flash an sbf.

    I used Z4root on one of my Droid's as well as numerous others for friends and then used ROM Manager to flash clockwork recovery. Works perfect and couldn't be any easier. I would recommend to anyone.

    But without fixing it in memory on the latest builds it won't stick. I have a workaround fix for that.

    However, Z4Root will not currently work on the Droid post FRG83D.

    The correct way to root a D1 is link 3 in my sig. If you use a one click root app and flash a custom recovery thru RM, your recovery will be overwritten by the stock one on every reboot. You will eventually have issues.

    That's what I was thinking. I hear about people having many issues with the one click roots, etc. The 3rd link in your signature does it perfectly.

    Its not an app. It's software that you install on a computer. Look on xda for superoneclick and find the link
