How do I root my device?
What is involved in rooting an Android phone? I am thinking of rooting my Motorola Droid.
This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.
this is more or less the procedure I followed for rooting my motorola droid on android 2.1
