Well it worked just fine. Thanks again. Now I might play with flashing different recoveries to see what I like best. This is my third droid this year, and the first setup that has everything I want without the bad redraw issues, so I hesitate to do too much more. I only intent on keeping the phone until 4g is in my area and I upgrade to a nice new, well, I dont know what the next phone will be... something android.
I also have the same frg phone and tried rooting it last night with no success. But I think I also brick it but not sure I reset it to the original setting using the hard reset then it let me reactive it but I look this morning and still not working. Have you ever have the same problem?

You have an og Droid in addition to the X you are posting from?
Sent from my GimpDroid (Installed by RZR).
Yes i have both and droid x and a og droid i was going to use the og droid as a text subject until i get more proficient with all the programs. Also the i tried that root an og droid and the droid wasn't coming up on the list at all.
Two questions, then. Are you trying to access the phone from RSD Lite via the bootloader or via recovery? What OS is on the PC and does it have administrator access as well as the latest drivers installed?
I have tried the bootloader only not the recovery and i have windows 7 and it does have admin access also has the latest drivers i made sure of that. I can see it when i plug it in saying that it plug in right but can't see it on RSD light. Also i wanted to make sure that when i put the update.zip folder on my phone that i had to reload it from that file and when i did it wouldn't update from the sd card.
I google frg83d video and ended up with soup or root 1.8rA.exe which gave me the app super user on it with a ugly looking pirate with cross bones, so i guess my phone is rooted now yes or no. Also with the inactive phone i think it is verizon fault because even on my droid x it is saying it is not registerd but i used it to call a tech lady but it looks like i am going to there store tommrrow to figure it out.
You're rooted. Congratulations. However, Soup or Root is craptastic.
I have no idea what you're asking at this point, and you never answered my question. Could you please answer questions when they're asked so I can provide more useful help? Also, and very importantly, could you pleaseuse a little sentence structure and ask whatever it is you're asking? It makes my job a lot easier and it'll save you time and frustration because then I can provide accurate and responses. Thank you!
