    Well, not lost in operating my Droid, but lost as far as rooting and 2.2.

    I installed plenty of leaks on my blackberry's pretty easily. But when I look at the rooting and playing around with 2.2....i have NO IDEA what to do. :thinking:

    Can anyone recommend a guide step by step to get to 2.2, and which one is stable enough for a noob to use? :rolleyes:

    Thanks everyone!

    Bill

    And...i'm stuck.

    I'm rooted...trying to install 2.2 now....

    2. Turn your phone off and turn it back on by holding down the X button on the keyboard and power until the recovery screen comes up.

    The only thing that comes up is the triangle exclamation point and it stays there. what am i doing wrong?

    The best thing you can do is download Rom Manager From the Market. Download the free version then upgrade to premium. Then you will have everything you could ever want.

    Market version of maps works fine with Chevy rom. Ypu may have to uninstall, download from market, and reinstall.

    Thanks again to everyone for the help....I'm really enjoying my droid. 2.2 is freakin awesome!!! ;) It was really easy to do. It would have been perfect except for the one thing I overlooked. Thank goodness it wasn't a fatal error :rolleyes:
