    What tools folder?

    2) Where can I find the latest recovery file? (0-99.2b.img)

    In recovery on the first screen the first option is to reboot. You use the vol. up and down to navigate and the camera button to select what you want to do.

    Don't be afraid to tinker with your phone. Once you start you won't stop anyways If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

    With the droidroot program you have to download the tools......when you do, it downloads the folder as a zip ...how do you unzip the folder in the phone.....

    PS thanks for answering....

    You can either use your PC to unzip a file or use a file manager from the market (Astro for example).

    so in other words.following the steps in the video..when I open droidroot and press get the tools......it will downlaod the tool zip folder in my phone...I should then copy it into my pc...then unzip it...then place the unzipped tool folder back in the root of the sd card and delete the zip folder that I originally downloaded into the phone

    I have no clue what you are doing, because I have never watched a rooting video or used whatever program you are using. But to unzip it you never have to take it off your sdcard. If you mount the card you can unzip it, then remount it. You can take it off if you really feel you must, you shouldn't have to delete the zip or anything.

    it is not a rooting video...is the nandroid backup video....it shows you how to back up your files.....I want to overclcok my droid and it is better to back up your files when you do something like this....especially if you are going to try a new rom....

    did you ever hear of the droidroot app? When you back up your files for the first time you have to run this app. There is a tab that you have to press called "get the tools"..it downloads a a zip folder.....I was wondering how you unzit this folder...

    I have heard of the droidroot program, but never touched it. I am not sure what it does, and really it doesn't matter.

    You asked how to unzip a file. I have told you twice now how to unzip it; two different ways of accomplishing it as well.
