    So I'm obviously doing something wrong. I want to root my Droid and install Froyo, however, I only have access to a Linux box (or I'm too lazy to set up a VM for windows.) I'm trying to follow the various myriad of instructions at:

    http://androidforums.com/all-things...oot-related-currently-under-construction.html

    And I'm trying to use sbf_flash from:

    OPTICALDELUSION: sbf_flash

    However, when I put my Droid into the Bootloader mode. sbf_flash bombs out:

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. ./sbf_flash VZW_A855_ESD56_QSC6085BP_C_01.3E.01P_SW_UPDATE_03.sbf
    3. SBF FLASH 0.01 (mbm)
    4.  
    5. === VZW_A855_ESD56_QSC6085BP_C_01.3E.01P_SW_UPDATE_03.sbf ===
    6. 00: RDL03 0x80500000-0x8054CFFF 62D6 AP

    14. 08:  CG42 0xC0580000-0xC05BFFFF 73E3 AP
    15. 09:  CG47 0xC0A00000-0xC0CA0FFF 5BFF AP
    16.  
    17. Droid found.
    18. FAILED: could not claim interface 0: Operation not permitted
    19.  
    So is that just a problem with the sbf_flash, or do I need to set something differently with my phone. I have 2C.6C version of the Bootloader. Running Android 2.1, stock from Verizon.

    Of course, if I try to upgrade, I get the message:

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. E: Can't open /cache/recovery/command
    3.  
    4. -- Install from sdcard...
    5. Finding update package...
    6. Opening update package...
    7. Verifying update packing...
    8. E:E0CD marker occurs after start of E0CD
    9. E:signature verification failed
    10. Installation aborted.
    11.  
    Any suggestions?

    did you do this first?
    chmod +x sbf_flash


    Did you check the md5 on the sbf file you are using. If not I would try downloading it again

    I wouldn't have been able to run it if I didn't make it executable, now would I? Yes, the md5sum was fine.

    Ah, discovered you have to run sbf_flash as root... so use sudo. :p

    lol good point. Best person to talk to would be [mbm] the guy who made it. I know he hangs out on irc.freenode.net in #koush and probably #droidmod His user name on there is [mbm]
