i have deleted this post because it is now out dated. Installs of roms and themes are so easy now that nandroids like the one i had posted here are no longer needed.

Just installed this...so far so good. No issues with install. Will report back over the next day or so. Thank you, yutzyscott, and to all the devs for all the hard work. It is greatly appreciated.

As a long time lurker and a semi-technical noob I'm ready to dive in headfirst to root and install. I'm running totally stock 2.1.

Any chance of a real step by step from start to finish for noobs? Screen shots etc. I think lots of us are ready but we get tripped up by what appears to be a complex process.

Thanks for all that you guys do.

Root you stock 2.2 moto droid

This is a tutorial put together by radar3d not myself but, it is accurate and detailed also it is all correct so instead of me typing it all out I will just post this. Use at your own risk I am not responsible if you brick your phone but I can help you unbrick it.

I have put together what i hope is a complete how to root 2.1 guide. To flash mbm's SPrecovery, Install SU access and install busybox.

This Guide is for NON-Rooted 2.1 phones not for 2.0.1 or 2.2 phones!!!

Not all credit for this is mine. I copied bits and parts from here and there. Besides the parts I stole mbm and sgx helped out allot too.
Install SPrecovery:

Edit: 08MAY2010 (nandroid recommendations)

IF YOU ARE NOT USING LINUX SKIP DOWN TO DOWNLOADING RSDlite:
For those of you trying to flash via a VirtualBox in Linux you have to add three devices to your USB settings prior to beginning.
Add the three devices as below: If not using LINUX Virtual Box IGNORE THIS!!!

usb2.png


usb3.png

If you are running Windows7 64 bit (RSDlite is picky but these steps may help):
1. Make sure you download and install the 64 bit drivers.
2. Place the "SPRecovery_ESE81.sbf" on the root of your C:\
3. Navigate to your "C:\Program Files\Motorola\RSD lite\" folder
4. right click on SDL.exe file and select run as administrator

All Users Continue Here:

Download and install RSDlite 4.6 from the web :
RSDLite4.6.msi
Download and install motorola USB drivers 32 bit or 64 bit as applicable :
USB_Drivers_32_bit_4.2.0.zip
USB_Drivers_64_bit_4.2.0.zip
Download [mbm]'s sbf file from Droidmod.org :
SPRecovery_ESE81.sbf

RSDLite46-1.png
Moto32BitUSB-1.png
Moto64BitUSB-1.png
mbmsbf.png


Open RSDlite

navigate to the and select .sbf file you downloaded above.
Rsdlite1.png

Power off your phone.

Slide keyboard open.

Connect USB cable between phone and computer.

Press up on D-Pad Normally your phone will turn on when you plug it in so you need to press up on D-Pad immediately, then if it did not come on, while holding up on the D-Pad Power up your phone.

Your phone should say:
Battery ok
OK to program
Transfer Mode:
USB


Then in rsdlite you may have to hit show device. If it does not show up you may need to reboot your computer, or reinstall rsdlite or something else is wrong.

In RSDlite you should now see your phone connected if not select “show device” .

Press “Start”

Your phone will reboot at about the 26% spot in the progression (this is normal for THIS .sbf)
once your phone reboots you are done and you can close RSDlite even though it will warn you that you could ruin your phone.

You now have Sprecovery installed on your 2.1 phone.

Note: I recommend at this point that you make an advanced nandroid backup of your phone
so that should you decide to un-root your phone you can do it easily.
1. reboot phone while holding down "x"
2. perform nandroid backup (pictures below)

---Next---

Rooting Phone:

Download:
20100429h_update.zip

rename the file to simply update.zip (make sure it is "update.zip" NOT NOT NOT "update.zip.zip")

connect your phone to PC

copy the update.zip file to the root of your sdcard (/sdcard = not in a folder)

reboot your phone into recovery by shutting it off and turning it back on while holding down "x"

scroll down to install, and then click on ALLOW update.zip from sdcard

then select to APPLY update.zip from sdcard (deprecated)

watch the status it should go through the process and then say reboot to continue

reboot phone

Install Busybox:

Reboot phone into normal mode and open terminal emulator (you can download one for free from the android market if you haven't already. I use "Android Terminal Emulator" but you could us a different one I assume)

type "su" (no quotes)

a popup should show up asking for root/su permissions

click on the checkbox

click on allow should get a # cursor

run the next two commands
Code:
cd /system/busy

sh install-busybox.sh

the previous command should end by saying reboot phone to complete

type "reboot" (no quotes)

Reboots the Droid

To verify it worked go back into terminal emulator and type "busybox" (no quotes)

if it scrolls a bunch of info about busybox it worked

Note: I highly recommend you make another nandroid backup at this point, name it something like 2.1_rooted_fresh or whatever you like just so you know which one it is and keep the two nandroids made here in a safe place even if you move them off of your sdcard to a pc for storage. This way if you get crazy with ROMs or Themes and something goes awry you can get back to ground zero easily.

You're Done!!!

When done you should be able to install a ROM if you want to, but the primary purpose for me is just so I can run apps that require root access and busybox like:

Want a ROM NOW!?!?!
Try this ROM: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6818585/droidmod_sholes-ota-eng.radar3d.20100613.230439.zip

Titanium backup
drocap2
metamorph
wifi wireless tethering
usb wired tethering
root booter
root explorer
and many more....

If you have trouble following the guide go here:

freenode Web IRC (qwebirc)
That is where I hang out.

Enjoy and Cheers!!!

Yes you can because it is a clean install. simply be sure to wipe data at least twice. if you are using my nandroid file it will be easy and flawless. however if you do happen to run into a problem you can always ask for help and I will be happy to do so.

Is there something different about the SiriusXM app? Is this one hacked or anything?

Downloading now.!!!! I hope it works good. I've tried Froyos doing clean wipes and all and I always end up with random reboots....Im thinking that it is the kernel. I don't know will post again after I install.

:blackdroid: BTW Im downloading from my droid and will rename and install. Does it make a difference if you download w. phone or PC???? :icon_eek:

Did you get a google talk authentication error in your notification bar??

Ordinarily doing a data wipe and then signing back into google would fix this but, there is a flaw with the FRF84b and when you reboot after the data wipe you get stuck in a boot loop. this is a flaw with the 2.2 release itself that nobody seems to be addressing. I will get back to you on this as soon as I get it figured out.
