As the froyo upgrades are rolling out now, you'll find that universal androot doesn't work.

If you are using windows, then its very easy to root the new builds using superoneclick.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=803682


you can do it with linux but its quicker to do it manually.

I'll post instructions later for that.. see post #3


I'll also update with some tweaks that help with battery life and speed

here's how to root the froyo streak builds manually.. so useful to linux / mac users and anyone who doesn't want to use the superoneclick

Code:
GET ECLAIR/FROYO version of Superuser.apk and su 
from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=682828  extract the two files to the directory you're working from.. 

GET rageagainstthecage from 
http://stealth.openwall.net/xSports/RageAgainstTheCage.tgz  
extract the rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin to the same directory you're working from 

open a terminal/command line

adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
adb push Superuser.apk /data/local/tmp/Superuser.apk
adb push su /data/local/tmp/su
adb push busybox /data/local/tmp/busybox
adb shell chmod 700 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
adb shell chmod 700 /data/local/tmp/busybox

adb shell
cd /data/local/tmp

./rageagainstthecage

******this will kill adb server but manually kill it anyway and restart it ******
adb kill-server

adb start-server
* daemon not running. starting it now *
* daemon started successfully *

adb shell
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock6 /system 

**********Follow the following steps to install Superuser.apk, busybox,su ****************

cd /data/local/tmp
./busybox cp busybox /system/bin/
chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
busybox cp Superuser.apk /system/app/
busybox cp su /system/bin/
chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
exit
exit 

then reboot streak

# exit 
exit

This is supposed to be a helpful thread to help people who want a simple easy way of rooting the froyo releases.
Not a discussion on why you cant find something
Orionbg I have no idea whether that one works as the two ways I've suggested do work..
Lets keep it simple, think about those who really struggle rather than confusing them with more info than needed ;-)

Lufc can you lock it and add it to the stickies so as not to let it spiral away.
I'd rather keep it clear and easy for people to follow...
