    I upgraded my Droid a while back to 2.1 and I've decided I want to root it now because I got a WiFi iPad and I think it would be nice to use my Droid as a wifi hotspot. I followed some instructions on another site and I've installed the USB Drivers, RSD Lite, and I have the ROM file for 2.0.1. As soon as I get my Droid to the bootloader my PC will not recognize it anymore. What am I doing wrong? It works fine when it's booted regularly. Thanks in advance.

    Im pretty sure you hold up on the dpad before you power up. Then your pc should find it instantly.

    You never mentioned what OS you are using, but I am going to take a stab at it and guess you are on a 64bit system. Of the many of us that have tried to use RSD Lite on a 64bit PC, only one person that I know of has gotten it to work. After 3 hours of fighting with it, I just used my laptop (32bit W7) and it worked fine.
