    I was running DroidMod, but stupidly unrooted so that I could get the official 2.1 update.

    Now that I'm on 2.1, is there no way to root?

    From what I've gathered, my only option is to use RSDlite to go back to 2.0.1 and root from there?

    Is this correct or is there a way to root with 2.1?

    Yes, so far, RSDlite to 2.0.1 is the only way to get a rooted 2.1. Go back to 2.0.1, root, install SPRecovery, then update using this ROM:

    ROM ESE81 Completely Stock With Proper Root, SU, & Baseband - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    So after doing this, can you then install Cyanogen or any other ROM over this? Won't it overwrite the newer radio and other things in the official 2.1 update?

    Even though I used RSDlite to unbrick my phone-- this all seems a little too complex for my newb mind.

    I guess I'll just wait until there is an easy rooting solution for 2.1. It can't be thaaat far off right?

    I hope not I updated to 2.1 and want root back but I can wait but not to long.

    I just flashed back to 2.0.1. It wasn't that hard actually... I'm glad I did it. I never realize how slow the stock Droid is until I can't overclock anymore :-)

    yes...........
    Try this.
    Make a backup, then while in recovery go to installation (or w/e it is)
    Choose Install ROM from SDcard
    Go to clockworkmod/download/briancook.ca/android/nexus/gapps
    And then choose the file named: gapps-passion-EPE54B-signed

    Hopefully it'll bring the market app back.

    all these articles saying that nobody is working on 2.1 for the droid to root. I'm new to the droid but correct me if im mistaken but isnt 2.1 rooted for the nexus one? I know they're different devices but various programs can on both, wouldn't it stand to reason that whatever root exploit used for the nexus one is also on the 2.1 for the droid?

    The issue is their both 2.1 but Google builds it for the n1 and MOTO uses Google source code and builds it for the Droid. So the root process and other things will be different

    I actually fixed it before you posted this but thanks anyway. I manually installed the gapp zip file.
