The problem I'm having is I have rooted with z4 root back in early December, I received the new update 2.2.1 FRG83D. Now I'm stuck with no root and a superuser icon left.I don't know how to proceed the best way from here. I do have access to windows XP or is there an easier way to get rooted and back on the right track. A little help please.

This is what I did. I downloaded superoneclick from xda-developers.com onto my computer, first unrooted my phone and then rooted it. Follow the instructions carefully.

Or follow the first link in my signature.
+1 ^^^ this. The Super One Root will _probably_ work, but doing it the long way will give you much more knowledge and satisfaction.

I've been busy with traveling for my work and trying to root my Droid. I finally rooted the Droid with soup or route. This method was very simple and quick, however I still have alot to do. I've been reading alot in the forums on rooting and since I can't sit in any one place for any length of time, I'm gonna take it slow. I appreciate the responses that u guys had given and hope to receive more. I'm looking to do things in the proper order to make it easy as can be. I'm open to suggestions. Thanks again

Busy with your Droid, or busy with life? haha
What's the "or" for? There's a difference? hehe.

gmflyer, you probably want to put a custom recovery image on your phone the easiest way to do that is to install rom manager (free) from the market, then have it flash clockworkmod recovery. That is just a start, there's a much better recovery brewing, but we'll take baby steps.

good luck

Yea seriously," soup or route "gave me root along with superuser and busybox. The final tweaked version 2.8 I believe. It took a whole 5 minutes.

I think he's saying that its "soup or root" not route.

Yes, I think that's probably what he meant. Oh well, I have to figure out how or what way to do a backup on this phone.I downloaded Rom manager and titanium backup, "free" from market. I'm just not sure of the steps to take. I don't want to lose root or screw anything up. I like this d1 alot, like its my buddy, and without it, that would make for a dull day. I'm due for an upgrade 5 months but I don't even think I would persue that yet. Once I get everything ready on this phone, then I might purchase better apps from market. If I have to, I will make purchases now. Any advice?, knowing what I rooted with
from this point "Soup or root"

#1. Install either clockworkmod recovery or sprecovery from ROM Manager.
#2. Download the update.zip file found in http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-labs/74028-root-droid-1-regardless-os-version.html and put it on the root of your sdcard.
#3. Reboot into recovery. Create a backup with either cwmr or sprecovery (name it something like frg83dstock) then install update.zip.
#4. Enjoy your working root+custom recovery.

Questions, let me know.
