dam i did steps 1-29 and the screen comes up showing /!\ what do i do from here?
I followed the step-by-steps and it worked wonderfully! I reverted back using my backup, but now when I hold down my power button and the X key I get the modified recovery screen. Is there anyway to get rid of this as I have to bring my droid in to VZW for a warranty issue?
Also since I restored from my back-up will I be able to get OTA updates?

@kahf - If you can boot to the /!\ screen then you should be able to use the instructions at this thread http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...o-busybox.html to get back to stock. Do that, then you can try these instructions again if you feel up to it.
@mkarolian - I would follow the instructions at this thread to get fully back to stock: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...o-busybox.html. They look like the best I've seen yet.
Hey guys the flash_image link is temporarily down, in the meantime you can use http://cyanogen-files.carneeki.net/flash_image.zip as you can see this is a .zip file so you'll have to extract it first before pushing to the phone and doing the steps.
my bad i forgot to come back and say i got it. same thing happened to me as someone else on here. a was half sleep got the correct recovery screen using a root helper or something like that dont have my phone on me to check. then since i was half sleep i didnt notice that i had recovery-0.99.1 instead of 2b whooo long nite after i woke up i looked and realized its so easy lol thanks for the guid. next time ill do it during the day. i guess it didnt help that i was trying to put mac osx on my other computer for half a day before zzz
now that i have shols if i want to flash another rom can i just go into recovery install then install the other rom ? i used metamorph and i have i theme i dont like but cant install it and the file to get rid of it i cant get ive been trying on rapid share to get it all day with no luck so ill just start over

@khaf - Glad to hear you worked through your challenge. As sholes.info updates their rom, they will tell us if the latest rom release requires an updated sprecovery. You will need to read the release notes that are posted with each rom update as they are rolled out to know for sure. As long as you have the latest sprecover you should be able to flash the latest sholes.info rom.

OK - I am a noob with all this (I am an old winmo guy and have a long way to go with droid). Before I set off on my root journey, I tried to download all of the prerequisite files, and noticed a couple of files appear to be missing (from the links listed in the initial post):
- recovery-0.99.2b.img (which i located at rootyourdroid.info here
Anyone know where I can get my hands on virginoem?
Btw - (not that it matters) - I am intending to flash with Pete's Bugless Beauty v8 rom.
