after a scary reboot 'green line up top after power off i had to pull battery' I know have full root without having to do anything else. thanks a lot i dont know why i have waited a year but this easy root inspired me to do it now to keep my droid usable for even longer.

great to hear! I strongly suggest install "ROM Manager" from the Market, and using the first option at the top dealing with Recovery. Then make a backup. Good luck!

plus 1. Backups are your very best friend in the rooting world.

for sure, and it's great for being able to switch between ROMs.

I suspect that this script will actually work for a Droid2 also, but I don't have one to try it out.

Thank you so much!!! After Googling my brains out and trying things on my Mac and PC, your method was the only one that worked. Now on to figuring out that whole ROM thing. :)

Damn. I got so close. I tried the Cyanogen wiki page at got stuck here:

Installing SPRecovery with sbf_flash (Linux & OS X)
Download sbf_flash & the SPRecovery file:
sbf_flash:
Linux version: Download
OS X version: Download
SPRecovery: Download
Plug in the Motorola Droid to the computer via USB cable.
Turn the Motorola Droid off while it is plugged in.
Turn on the Motorola Droid by holding down Power and Up on the D-pad on the device.
On the computer, open terminal.
Type the following commands:
Linux:
chmod +x sbf_flash
./sbf_flash MC1_A855_1282081087_Recovery-Only_SPRecovery_0.99.3b.sbf
OS X:
chmod +x sbf_flash.osx
./sbf_flash.osx MC1_A855_1282081087_Recovery-Only_SPRecovery_0.99.3b.sbf
Watch for the system to reboot (you'll have a couple seconds) and hold down the x key before the Motorola logo displays on the boot screen.

I downloaded those two files on my macbook pro, fully updated. I placed them on my desktop. I turned on usb mode and debug mode. Ran the first and second code and it seemed to have worked ok.

udp049699uds:Desktop benjaminw****n$ chmod +x sbf_flash.osx
udp049699uds:Desktop benjaminw****n$ ./sbf_flash.osx MC1_A855_1282081087_Recovery-Only_SPRecovery_0.99.3b.sbf
SBF FLASH 1.20 (mbm)
OPTICALDELUSION

=== MC1_A855_1282081087_Recovery-Only_SPRecovery_0.99.3b.sbf ===
00: RDL03 0x80500000-0x8054CFFF DECE AP
01: CG47 0xC0A00000-0xC0D5C7FF 02C0 AP

Bus error

Then I tried your fix:
udp049699uds:Desktop benjaminwa***n$ ./run.sh
-bash: ./run.sh: No such file or directory
udp049699uds:Desktop benjaminwa***n$ cd ~/Desktop/root./run.sh
-bash: cd: /Users/benjaminwa***n/Desktop/root./run.sh: No such file or directory

Then I tried reboot and X to wipe data and install. But the update.zip was not update.zip (deprecated) it was just regular old update.zip

any help would be tremendously appreciated. I'd love to have Cyanogen

I rooted using your method but now I am getting an error while attempting to install ClockWorkMod Recovery. It says "An error occurred while attempting to run privileged commands!". Do you know what may be causing this?

I got it to work right after I posted this with a simple reboot. I'm now running CyanogenMod 7! Thanks OP!

Worked, then got error

So first, it was working fine, and all was well. it may have been missing one file but later figured out the problem, then i was going to redo it, and i got this in my terminal window :

Changing permissions...
Exploiting system...
Waiting for device to come back...
Remounting file system...
error: device offline
Installing su...
error: device offline
error: device offline
Installing busybox
error: device offline
error: device offline
Installing Superuser Permissions
error: device offline
error: device offline
error: device offline
error: device offline
Done!

Im not sure why it did this, but please help! installed rom manager when i saw the superuser icon, but it said permissions not accepted or someting along those lines and im not sure what to do now. Thanks -Ed
