Please please help with rooting Droid 1
Hello everyone! I know I am new here and this is my first post, so here is a little background about why I am here (I know most of you probably don't care, but I figured since I skipped the introduction page I would do it here)
Sorry this is so long, I tried to provide as much information as possible, in order to help you guys help me! Thanks for reading and helping.
phone I am trying to root, is a motorola droid 1 with 2.2.2 and FRG83G
When I first got my droid 1 I rooted it using a file from the internet and labeled update.zip did the whole hold x and power, then upload the update.zip file, and it worked superuser showed up, now I didnt want to do anything because my phone was brand new and did not wanna screw it up. So I had super user but never used it. Now it has been running super slow so I decided to go up to my local radio shack and get a new Bionic, well turns out radio shack couldnt sell me a Bionic on that particular day. so ever since then I have been researching and researching some more until all I am thinking is ROOT; ANDROID, and now RAZR, well as you all probably know the story behind radio shack and the bionic and the waiting time on the Razr I have decided to wait.
In my researching I found a set cpu app that would overclock the phones processor and and I installed it, however when I went to use it the app never asked for root permission. And so I started looking again. I installed superoneclick, and ran it, kept saying waiting for device.... and so I was a little upset, and factory reset the phone (done that a couple times now, and know how to activate it manually too; again thanks to your forum!, THANKS guys/gals) any how once I factory reset the phone the "original" superuser app (the little ninja guy) had disappeared. So I went to motorolas website and download the drivers for my computer, installed em and everything went successful! then I re-ran superoneclick and woooohooooo I was rooted, ran the test and YES it worked (according to the test) now I went back to the app store downloaded some root apps and nothing will ask permission and nothing will run root.
So I have rooted and unrooted with superoneclick several times. Started researching and found that some people where having success if they took the battery out upon reboot. so I do this and then it gets stuck in a boot loop (on the droid writing part), and phone wont turn off with just the power button. So I pull the battery and go into stock recovery and factory reset, OK reset phone, manually activated it, and super user app is still there, but doesn't work............
So I un-root using superonclick (tried deleting and reinstalling on computer too, and am running it as administrator);
Well superoneclick is not working..... find different method....
found motocache1 root anything! and think this has got to work, made sure I had the drivers.... made sure I had RSD lite and my phones been in usb debugging mode whole time, tried turning it off and on according to all the things Ive found
I downloaded both files from the internet to do the motocache root from some guys youtube video on the droid I have. He does it on his in the video and it worked....
here's my problem now when I connect phone to RSD lite it says connected, then I go to find the sbf file and click on that then RSD lite gives me the following message in the status bar
Platform not defined for CDMA_TYPE-OMAP_CHIPSET
Well I thought I would run it anyways and it just says failed....
ANY ONE have any ideas on what I can do to root this darned thing, its starting to really frustrate me, because I have built several pc's and played around in BIOS before, however have done very very little with command base programs and linux, but it just seems like I am missing something or that it is just not ment to be but its going to be if I can do anything about it (with your help of course :))
a Big THANKS to the help you guys have already provide and an EVEN Bigger thanks to anyone who can help.
