    I'm trying to root using these instructions:
    Motorola Droid Rooted: How To Root Your Droid And Change Visual Theme Or Use Restricted Apps | areacellphone.com

    I keep getting the error listed at the bottom:

    "Eclair has a new signature checking mechanism, which has a hole allowing unsigned updates up to a certain size.
    bootable/recovery/verifier.c notes that a zip file could be hidden in the signature, and has measures to prevent this, but due to a copy/paste mishap, does not check for a hidden zip properly.
    This was brought to my attention by embeem, a week or two ago. I do not know who mentioned the problem to him.
    Patch that closes the hole: http://review.source.android.com/12807"

    Where do I put the patch?
