What to do after SpRecovery.

As most of you know, the people at DroidMod have found and easy way to put SpRecovery onto a non rooted droid running on the 2.1 update.  Even though you have this recovery, you phone is not rooted, so what are you to do next in order to root you phone.  What easily can be done is you flash an old nandroid backup that you have.  Once you have flashed the nandroid backup, go into the market and download rom manager, the free one will work.  Then you will need to flash the clock work recovery.  Once this is completed, go to download rom, and then click on cyanogen mod.  Pick the top rom 5.0.5.7 and it will begin to download.  When you do this rom manage will ask you if you want to make a back and if you want to wipe data and cache.  Make sure you check wipe data and cache, but you really don’t need a backup unless you want one (since you already have one).  When the download is complete, your phone will reboot into recovery and begin to flash the rom.  When it is all done, you will have to setup you phone like it is brand knew, but when you are done, you will be running on a rooted droid, on the 2.1 update.

*Warning:  I am not responsible for any damage that you do to your phone.  This is risky and you can break your phone.

*I have not personally done this, because have always been on a rooted 2.1 rom.  I would like someone to confirm this will work, but I see no problem in this considering, this is how I would do it if I was going to an older to a newer rom.
