    e: can't open/cache/recovery/command

    Trying to root 2.0.1 Droid and I keep getting this message before I even select update.zip.

    "e: can't open/cache/recovery/command"

    After I select the update.zip file, the installation bar gets to about 25% and then jumps immediately to the end and only takes about 5 seconds (instead of the 1-2 minutes I keep reading about in the tutorials).

    I also do not have su permissions when checking su on terminal emulator.

    Any help for this error would be awesome. I have searched the forums and have not found a solution to this.

    Thanks...

    The only thing I have not tried is a factory wipe/reset because I want to save my text messages on my phone and can't find a way to back them up.

    Ok... I'm sorry, I have 2.0.1 running on my phone, however I do get the same error message when trying to root it.

    Are you are getting this when you get to the menu to select update.zip?

    Seems like I saw that error last time I did a factory reset. I just ignored it. I'm not 100% sure it's the exact error but...

    I ignored the error too. I then rebooted, and opened up a terminal and typed su.... it said I did not have su rights. I also did not see the # sign signifying I have root access to the phone.

    Sounds like your phone isn't rooted then.

    Yeah, I ran into a similar problem while I was messing around with the framework.apk. When you try to apply an update.zip, recovery tries to verify all of the folders that it is about to rewrite. If it senses that something has been modified in one of the folders that it is trying to update, it will throw this error. You need to find out what was modified in this folder and change it back to stock, or else you will have to load up a nandroid backup, and go from there. I don't know of anything that would modify this folder's contents, but I am pretty sure that is what causes this error. Can you remember changing anything in this folder?

    I haven't changed a thing in this folder other than adding the update.zip. It was my first time actually viewing the sdcard on the computer. After viewing, I just added the update.zip file.

    try deleting anything in the /cache/recovery/ folder so that its just an empty folder.
