Download: Rooted FRG01B Froyo for DROID

For those of you that stayed rooted while the Froyo OTA update was discovered, you can now have it with full root access.  Yep,  Pete (Mr. Bugless Beast) has already put together the FRG01B build, slipped in superuser and has it ready to rock on your Droid.  What’s even better, is the guy is in the middle of a camping trip and managed to hack while roasting some mallows.  Dedication.

Download:  FRG01BODEXEDOTA.zip (alt link)



1.  Download the file to your SD card.
2.  Open ROM Manager, choose “Install ROM from SD Card.”
3.  Scroll down to find FRG01BODEXEDOTA.zip and tap on it.
4.  When prompted, check the box to create a backup if you don’t have a recent one.
5.  Skip the “wipe data and cache” box if coming from another Froyo build.
6.  Phone will reboot, work magic and BAM!  Enjoy the new Froyo!

Let us know if you run into any issues!

And again, amazing work Pete.

    Having some intermittent problems with this build:

    -Intermittent errors using market, sometimes it won't load at all.
    -I may be crazy, but i could have sworn there was an alarm app that took you straight to your set alarms in 2.1, can't find it on this build
    -Automatic brightness is much brighter at night (again i suppose this could be an actual change in 2.2 no way for me to tell)

  • Atall64

    I get message from Rom manager saying the SD card needs to be mounted to use Rom manager. Not sure what that means…..

  • Kingdugar

    I need serious help. My latest flash is reading unknown in Rom manager and whenever I try to flash into the latest it reads An error occurred while attempting privileged commands. Please help someone

  • Nomad1125

    I dont what to do now i have tried this several times and it still dosn't work i put it as update.zip and i also tried running it through my ROM Manager

  • D1 rooter-wanna-be

    Is there a root for stock android 2.2? i manually updated to 2.2 yesterday and am looking for a root of FRG01B, and i was not rooted before. Thanks.

  • anyone know if you can do the update.zip method?

  • jazzy

    having an issue with the wifi connecting to my router. it connects for a short period of time then stops even with all the wifi bars showing. everything else seems to work great.

  • Conco2k

    Need some help here. I am using Sapphire 0.8.4 rom with the frf84b build. Will this file work for me?

    • Conco2k

      just FYI in case anyone has the same setup as me. I ended up using the ROM Manager and doing the install and install went smooth. did a backup first. HOWEVER the phone lags like crazy. dont understand this.

  • What about the baseband my never change

  • Kanepj2001

    Followed your instuctions, but it took a 2nd try at Rom Manager to get things working. Google Voice works great. Had to re-install Face Book. still leaning the ends and outs of Android 2.2. I'll be test my other apps and let you know if there are any issues. Thanks

  • The base band on mine didn't change? Anybody know why. It is still stock

  • I installed the root 2.2 and I lost maps and it will not download from the market any idea on what I might try?

  • Pacmannproductions

    right now im rooted 2.2 with sapphire…if i dload this and place it directly on my sd card and install it, will i lose all my contacts n stuff again?

  • n3m0xD

    can anyone show me how to root 2.2 so i can get the rooted 2.2?

  • Nick

    i had a problem doing this. Might be kind of a stupid one but i did the whole process up there and it put my in SB recovery thing.. any anwsers?

    • Jonesboy6

      Nick I'm assuming you and Jeff R and Eric are rooted already and have installed Rom Manager. I think you'll have better luck if you flash clockworld mod recovery before you go to step 2 and if you get the triangle ,reboot then flash sprecovery then immediately reflash clockworldmod again then go to step 2 again! hope this helps.

      • I got it to work on a friends phone by following you instructions “Jonesboy6”. Thank you for the help.

  • Jeff R

    Quick question…. I'm trying to install the new rom now and when it reboots, how long does it usually take before the triangle and “!” goes away?

    • Dshel61

      I am having the same issue!

    • Your battery level has to be above 60%. Mine was doing the same thing but after it charged up over 60 then it worked

    • Eric

      I am also having this issue…Ive tried like 4 times and still keep getting the triangle and !

      • Eric

        I got it to work…I flashed an Alternative Recovery and then flashed ClockworkMod Recovery again and I was then able to load the rom

  • Jonesboy6

    Where is bluetooth voice dialer that was on the features list/

  • Dshel61

    What do you lose when you choose “Wipe Data and Cache”?

    • Jonesboy6

      Everything except your contacts list which is automatically backed up to your google account. Do you have any file manager program running that backs up your apps?

  • Tamiam

    Can't get to step 4 found the FRG01BODEXEDOTA.zip on my SD Card but when I tap on it 3 files appear boot, Meta-INF and system?? Help what did I do wrong?

  • Omegaxzer0

    I just tried to install the 2.2 rooted ROM using the ROM manager. This is the first time I have ever installed any rom either with or without the ROM Manager. I am using a DROID that was rooted using Easy Root. It just gets stuck on the screen with a ! inside a triangle next to the phone whenever I choose to install. Any help?

    • Dshel61

      Hold the Volume UP button and then press the CAMERA button.

      • When do you do this? As it's rebooting or after you see the triangle with the ! in it?

    • Tanda05

      You should try flashing on older recovery and then reflash the recent clockworkmod recovery and it should work fine. (I had the same thing happen last night and it worked for me.)

  • pman

    Since this is the official release with root does it include flash 10.1? I apologize if this is a stupid question to people but I have had a FRG1B build in the form of sapphire v.0.7.0 for a while now and I cannot get flash to work on my Droid. I even downloaded the leaked FRG22 today and updated to that and still c can't seems to get flash. Can anyone point me in the right directions. Again, I apologize if this is anyway a stupid question in any way, I'd prefer not to get bashed for being a noob with flash for android.

    • Bill Ward73

      go to the “manual 2.2 update” forum and scroll down. you will see a link to get flash. That is where I got it and it worked….

  • tDroid

    worked great. loved how it kept all my information too. reinstalled all 72 apps that i had

    • Bill Ward73

      Did you by any chance install the unrooted version first? I did and am wanting the rooted version, but seems I need to factory reset first and don't want to lose all my apps…

  • Adiaz


  • k0r

    So what's the difference between this and the sapphire version? is it worth switching over to this one?

  • Rvrikard

    I am new to rooting and learning a great deal! I have rooted 2.1 and installed ROM manager. I have read through the instructions and the posts related to installing Pete's su build (Thank you Pete!) — there is one step in the instructions I have a few questions about.

    1. Do I need to wipe data and cache when I install Pete's su build?
    2. If I have to wipe the data and cache, will I need to reinstall my apps and set up my email accounts, etc?
    3. Will I need to reactivate my phone?
    4. If I need to reactivate my phone, how do I reactivate?
    5. Are there any additional steps or details I need to be aware of?

    Thank you….

    • Ykay511

      1. no you don't have to wipe data
      2. yes, if you do wipe data, you will have to reinstall everything
      3. yes, you will need to reactivate your phone, thats only if you did not backup and performed a wipe data
      4.ts easy just log in to your google account
      5. you should be fine

      • Rvrikard

        Thank you Ykay511! Worked like a charm!

  • Bill Ward73

    scroll down on the main page to manual update for droid… it has links for both near the bottom….
