Any assistance you can offer me would be much appreciated. I'm in the process of rooting my Droid. I'm using the technique that Kellex at Droid Life: A Motorola Droid Blog has posted. I liked having a video to follow along with. I installed SPRecovery on my phone with no issues - while running stock 2.1 just like he did in the video. Worked like a charm. Even did a Nandroid backup just to test it out. His next video shows you how to install a custom Rom on a non-rooted phone. Once installed, it will give you root. Seemed like a fool-proof way to go. I went with one of the links to a ROM he had on the page (JRummy's Blue Theme). Downloaded the file, renamed it update.zip and placed in on my SD card (exactly as he did on the video). Next, using SPRecovery, I wiped my data and cache - again doing exactly what he's doing on the video. When I went to install the update.zip file it almost immediately said the install was aborted. Meanwhile, on the video he was having his phone updated with no problems. Did I miss something? I'm not sure if it matters, but I'm using Windows Vista and I downloaded the file from Internet Explorer. I'm also running Helix Launcher 2 as my default home on my Droid. Would any of these cause the update to not work correctly? Any suggestions? Thank you in advance.
