Been the hottest Android handset on the planet at this moment, the DROID by Motorola was bound to get rooted sooner rather than later. And guess what, it has happened. We have word from simms22 in our forums, about this good news.

Before anything, let's be clear that, if you decide to go on and root your Android device, you take some risks on doing so. Like always, be very careful and have a back-up plan, just in case. And remember that you do this at your own risk. Below you will find the instructions on how to proceed:

Download the zip file and rename it . Rename it to "update.zip" and copy to your sdcard .
Power off your DROID and then power it back on again, at the same time hold down the X key . When you see the "/!\" symbol, press both vol+ and camera and and a menu will appear allowing you to install the update.zip file . Once installed you will be able to run "su" from your adb shell.

To find the zip file and everything else, including advice, that you'll need to go ahead with rooting your DROID, you need to click on our androidcommunity forums link here. If you have already done it, give us a shout and let us know how you like it.
