If you’re a super power-user you’re probably already running CyanogenMod or some other custom ROM on your Droid Original. If not, you’re likely VERY happy with the Froyo update that you just got (or should be getting any time now).
If you’re not quite ready to take that plunge, but still want the advantages that having root access gives you, there’s a application for that! Simply head over the the Market and search for Easy Root, version 1.2.2 is the latest version (as of this writing).
This app is reported to work with both the FRG01B and FRG22 Froyo builds.
