EDIT: Was Stupid...
I give up. I'm frustrated. I've installed a total of 8 times now, and had no luck. Everything is fine until I get done and try to reboot the phone, at which point it just hangs between the eyeball and the "Droid" text. I don't understand why it won't boot, but I give up on it. It's not worth the hassle.
New Android Developer
Loving my Motorola Droid!
Complete noob here, first post ect.. I followed the steps no probs, except the ROM linked in the thread, the link didn't work (I figured you could just go find any rom)
So I did!
I put AllDroid - View topic - [ROM .tgz] 2.0.1 Sholes.info Edition 1.2 (UPDATED: 01/25/10) on my SD Card and got to:
52. Choose 'Choose ROM from SD card'.
It gave me a "no tar files found", or something like that..restarted the phone and it's fine, but would really like to continue this, any help appreciated.
p.s. I love this http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...-run-like.html - I'd love to get it like this or any other suggestions are welcome

What we need is a store we can walk into, hand the genius our phones (along with, say, $50), stand around sucking on a Starbucks for a while, and getting our phones back, running like raped apes. I don't have the skill, time, or patience for doing this myself. But, it sure looks like the phone I'D love to have!
After reading through this string, it sounds for sure like the Droid was designed to run faster than they do "out of the box", literally. Dang......

Cleanse the gene pool,
Stamp out warning labels.
Ok, total n00b here. Wanna sya up front, THANK YOU. Even though I dont have this working yet, I do have a WAY better understanding of the process.
Question. Im trying to install the sholes 1.2 with this instruction set. When I get to 54, like others Im not asked to select any features. Ive tried renaming the file to sholes_info-1.0.1.rom.tgz with no success. Still hanging up on 54. Any suggestions or doesn anyone know which step(s) need to be modified to get 1.2 on my phone?
Thanks ion advance!
