Excellent. That was it. Thanks a bunch.
I keep getting an error from RSD. I can't find any real answers for it on google, and the link you posted didn't help. I did run it as admin, I tried it in safe mode, I re-downloaded the sbf file a couple times and I did a battery pull a couple times.
The error is:
Failed flashing process. Failed Flashing Process. Error processing flash file. (0x700F); phone connected.
One thing you could try which has worked for some although it doesnt make much sense that it would work is uninstall the motorola drivers and try again without the drivers installed.
That didn't work. I forgot to mention that I didn't get the OTA update, I found a manual install one on another site, could that be causing the issue?
No I did the manual install too, was way too impatient for the OTA.
Edit** Did you do the md5 step? I kept the cmd prompt open the whole time I was doing this.
Edit** Also, I just reread the instructions and there seems to be a solution to the RSD problem, see here: http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid/74153-if-you-get-failed-flashing-process-0x7100-rsd-lite.html#post1274587
Do you by chance have another computer you can try it on. I know some Win764bit users can just never get RSD to work
I'm actually on 32bit 7. But I do have a couple other PCs I could try it on, I didn't even think about doing that
Guide worked well for me - I was on the forced stock FRG01B and it was having redraw/slowness for me. Followed the instructions and it worked like a charm! Now I have rooted FRG22 and it is blazing fast. Props to OMJ for this guide.
I got it to work. ( thanks for the great guide!!! ) I though I would share what I found. I had installed Easy Tether on the computer. Just after RDS sends the RAM thing it very quickly drops the USB connections then re-connects. Easy tether was interfering with this. I disabled it and it worked exactly like the guide. I now have ROOT and FRG22....
Thanks for all of the help and suggestions...
Now I have to figure out what programs I need now that I am rooted.....
I know I need ROM Manager and titanium backup. Is there anything else I need????
Setcpu is the other one that I would consider a MUST
Thanks I got it... Can you change the CPU in FRG22??
Can't enable USB mass storage.
Ok, so I'm probally going to take the plunge and root my phone tomorrow at work (no PC at home).
My only remaining concern is that after getting a taste of root, I will want to try some custom firmware at some point. If after getting root access on the stock 2.2 with this method, is there a straight forward upgrade path to custom roms?
In that thread there is a guide for flashing roms
You can you need setcpu from the market. You will also need a custom kernel. Check this thread for instructions on flashing
and this one for a list of Froyo Kernels
What does it say when you try?
It doesn't say anything. I just can't access card on the droid.
And you are mounting it in recovery?
I followed the guide and everything worked perfectly. However I tried to boot into recovery to make a backup and the M would come on, stay for a while, and then shut off. If I don't hold 'x' everything boots fine. Any ideas on what I could do to get into recovery?
Yea download rom manager from the market and use it to flash clockworkmod recovery. Its a better recovery anyway in my opinion. If that doesnt fix it let me know.
i am stuck,after i transfer rom to the sd card and then go to install says.aborted,error in sd card /update .zip.status 7.can i just flash it back to 2.1 or can i not get to that menu
download the rom again. Sounds like a bad download
i downloaded both of the ones you had in your post and have the same result
In that thread 3/4 of the way down Reverting to stock.
I dont know what status 7 is off the top of my head. Cant remember seeing it in the past. If I were you I would try flashing the SPrecovery sbf and trying again before giving up and going back to stock 2.1
got it i think i named it update with nothing else and it is taking it.have no idea if that was it or not but it went thru
Look I've been trying to root my droid I have put the leaked 2.2 on it no prob the problem is everywhere I go it has dead links and when I do get a good on the signature fails please someone help!!!!!!! Email me williams4707@gmail....com
