Default How do I root the frk76 OTA update?

I don't run any roms just root. I received the OTA update lastnite and without thinking, I allowed it to update. I usually use SuperOneClick but that doesn't seem to work with this update. I have searched high and low and can't find any information on rooting this. Any help is appreciated.

SOLVED. I reverted to SuperOneClick 1.7 and used rageagainstthemachine and it worked after a reboot. zergRush in 2.2 doesn't seem to work against this update.

Default SuperOneClick 2.2.2 Will Work With FRK76 if...

I took the rageagainstthecage exploit file from SuperOneClick 1.7 and placed it in the "Exploits" sub-directory of SuperOneClick 2.2.2 and it worked as well after a reboot. Note: You'll get a warning message about it's incompatibility with Android 2.3 + (not an issue as FRK76 is 2.2.3)

Default Don't know what the above means

Does 2.3.1 work without modification?

While I still have my 2 year old droid, I don't have my windows computer any more. Is there any way to do this with a Mac?

Good day, I've scoured the xda dev & android forums, and haven't been able to come up with a resolution to this: I let the OTA [FRK76 - 2.2.3] update slip through, and now i'm having issues rooting.

Besides the fact i'm running linux, i refuse to use any of the one click methods.. Would rather root manually so i know what's happening.

I'm running Ubuntu & doing this all through ADB / terminal, following the instructions listed in android forums [Rooting the Droid without rsd lite up to and including FRG83D], i get to step 13 and i still see the $ & not #.

As there anyone out there who can assist?

Thanks much in advance!

My D1 seems remarkably resistant to rooting. I downloaded SOC 2.3.3, added rageagainstthecage to the exploits folder, and it still won't even really get to the "Waiting for Device" command. It kills/boots the ADB daemon then hangs. If I kill one of the ADB processes manually, I can get it to skip the automatic version check and get to "Waiting for Device" but then nothing happens there, either.

Any help (or hell, an alternate rooting method- I'd do it the long way too) would be great.
