I've come up with a simple script to root a Droid1 with the newest firmware FRG83G on the Mac. I went for the Mac, as it seems that there are other one-click methods for Windows and Linux... and I'm on a Mac.

Make sure your Droid is connected to the computer using USB.

Make sure the following settings are enabled:
Code:
Settings -> Applications -> Unknown sources (checked)
Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB debugging (checked)

Just unzip it, and then in a terminal:
Code:
./run.sh
You should have to wait about 10 seconds, then, you should have Superuser installed, and able to use "su"

If you don't know how to open a terminal and what "./run.sh" means: http://tinyurl.com/3w8ouje

gnychis, thanks for this.

I gave it a shot, and this is what I got:


Changing permissions...
Exploiting system...
Waiting for device to come back...
Remounting file system...
./run.sh: line 10: adb: command not found
Installing su...
./run.sh: line 12: adb: command not found
./run.sh: line 13: adb: command not found
Installing busybox
./run.sh: line 15: adb: command not found
./run.sh: line 16: adb: command not found
Installing Superuser Permissions
./run.sh: line 19: adb: command not found
./run.sh: line 20: adb: command not found
./run.sh: line 21: adb: command not found
./run.sh: line 22: adb: command not found
Done!

Needless to say, there's still no su icon on my phone.

I'm the first to admit that I'm a newbie at this, having never rooted my phone. Do you know what I'm doing wrong?

Sure.sorry bud. You need to install the android sdk which includes adb. Let me
see if i can include it.

I still can't get it to work, but please keep in mind that I'm a complete idiot.

I re-downloaded the root folder, and I saw the adb file in there updated at 11:59. So I know that this is the updated folder, right?

I dropped the root folder in my Applications folder – for no good reason other than I can't seem to get to run in terminal it when its just on my desktop. Then I opened terminal and typed cd /Applications/root

And then I typed in ./run.sh

It says "Permission denied."

I'm sure this is a noob error. I just don't know what it is. But I know I'm not the only guy with a Droid and a MacBook Pro who wants to use the full functionality of his phone. If you can fill in the instructions a bit for guys like me, this script you wrote could help a lot of people.

grab the link one more time, I updated it again because when I added adb I forgot to set the executable permissions on it.

What I suggest is, unzip it to your desktop, then open Terminal. Use the following commands after you unzip it on your desktop:
Code:
cd ~/Desktop/root
./run.sh

Kiw90, was your Droid connected to your computer via the USB port? (Sorry, but that's all I got.)
