    What process are you using to root? I'm thinking that your update.zip file is not on the root of your SD card or the update.zip file has two ".zip" file extensions. I urge you to follow Matth3W's process(http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hac...ation-etc.html). It may seem lengthy but it just about fool proof.

    Here is a link that may help http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...y-command.html


    Since your in Matt's guide, I'm thinking that you have successfully returned to 2.0.1 by using the RSD install. Is that correct?

    Hmm, that sounds like a similar problem I had. The update.zip that is created after merging the two files seems to only work once per creation. I used it on my phone, then tried it on my Wife's and I just got an error. So I did the merge process again, then it worked.

    EDIT: Oh, I used a different guide though. So my part very well may not apply to this situation.

    You know you are tempted to scan my QR Code. Just do it.

    Negative.

    You can now install the SBF for "SPRecovery" only. Then you can use SPRecovery to install whatever you like.

    It's a sticky.
