I downgraded my 2.1 motorola droid to 2.0.1 yesterday, but this morning when I woke up it had upgraded to 2.1 again. I was able to tether before the update, but not now. I still have su, but it doesn't seem to be working now.

Any ideas?
Thanks

Personally, I would install the SPR SBF to 2.1 via RSDLite then use SPR to push over a newer su and SuperUser.apk to /system

Thanks for the reply. Do you have a link for that? I'm pretty new to this.

I appreciate all the help.

Thanks

You don't push superuser with SPRecovery. You might push it with ADB or Terminal.

Sorry Nate,

I don't know what that means. Do you have any instructions?

If the OP is having issues with root on 2.1 already, then the only way to put su and SuperUser.apk back on the device is using an update.zip via SPR

It doesn't really matter what it all means. I was just pointing out that the advice he gave was misguided.

Read this thread and see if it seems like somehting you can tackle http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/37696-flashing-sprecovery-sbf-stock-2-1-a.html

Once you are rooted and have SPRecovery properly installed we can discuss the next big leap to 2.2 Froyo. But let's take some smaller steps first.

Hi, nateccnn. I would like you to please take a moment and read the OP again. Then I would like you to take back your comment about my advice. Thanks :)

OK...I see what you're saying then...the update zip has a script that pushes the apps. I thought you meant to use SPR to manually push like you would in ADB.

The comment stands. But you probably do need to unwad those panties a bit. Try talking in a language the reader will understand.

Just wanted to let you guys know I was able to root it and get tethering back up. Couldn't use wireless tether. Kept getting an error about nat rules denied or something like that. Barnacle worked perfectly though.

Thanks again.
