    Is it possible to root the pro running the latest android version 2.3.3? If it is possible where do I find the instructions of how to root. This is my wifes phone and battery life is poor!! I am looking for nothing more than improving battery life. Thanks for your help.

    I don't know. I still haven't gotten around to rooting my Pro yet. I'm thinking about it but just haven't done. Was it as easy as it seems?

    Yes it was. Everything I have had time to test is working perfectly.

    have ran into a couple of problems after rooting... I cannot edit or add contacts. Does anyone have any ideas how to repair this?

    Few tips from a rookie...

    I boot looped my Droid Pro, but on power up if you hold R and M keys down it will boot to some console. You can then press Volume Down and Camera to get to the "Factory restore" screen which will roll you back to 2.2.1.

    From there I ran Gingerbreak and it rooted it just fine.

    If you run ADB SHELL to access the Droid a first command is often SU to enter super user mode, but you need to make sure you watch the droid screen because it will ask you to confirm allowing SU mode to the shell user. After that you can do whatever you need from ADB.

    I do appear to be stuck, with 2.2.1 and can't figure out how to bring it forward. Any additional advice there is appreciated.
