It took little over a month but the mighty Motorola DROID has been rooted. The news broke over at AllDroid forums with member embeem posting up the necessary files and the instructions for rooting. For those ready to install all those wonderful apps available only to rooted devices, slow down a bit as rooting, at this point, is not beneficial to the average consumer. It is more a proof of concept that it can be done. You root because you can, not because you can do anything with it. The future is where the excitement lies as it won’t be long before custom ROMS and other goodies are available to rooted DROIDs. One other little tidbit of information – the rooting procedure reportedly works on both 2.0 and 2.0.1 handsets. So when that update is pushed to your DROID, install it with confidence knowing that the ability to root your device is unaffected. Yay!
