    Re: Droid with 2.1 firmware rooted and not taking rom update

    Before offering more advice I think we need to know if he really has the OTA 2.1 update like he says becuase if so none if this will work unless he goes back to 2.0.1
    there is a sbf file out to root stock 2.1

    I tried installing trummy cyan rom, but when I try to do the install it says it cannot locate the update.zip file. I can see the update.zip in the /sdcard root with a file manager I downloaded and it is not .zip.zip.

    Any ideas?

    You say you have the OTA 2.1. If this is true then you are not successfully rooted and this would prevent you from being able to install CyanogenMod or any other ROM. 2.1 has not been rooted yet. You need to come from 2.0.1 and install a ROM based off the OTA.
    WRONG!

    Too many experts on these forums.

    OP,

    You installed SPRecovery using RSD Lite, right? You also installed Busy Box and Superuser.apk, right?

    If so you can use WiFi Tether. Just search for Barnacle on The Market. It's free and it works with a 2.1 OTA rooted phone. You do not need a custom ROM. Stick with the OTA ROM.

    I would also suggest running an overclock kernel. I use Adamz low voltage at 800 mhz. And my WiFi tether works flawlessly! I can't get it to work with a wep code but the developer of Barnacle swears I am typing the wep key incorrectly.

    It is the stock 2.1 that came from Verizon 2 days ago. I would be ok with goind back to 2.0.1 if I can get a rom that will give me the multitap and such..

    nate you are corrent but to clearify you have to flash the kernal to wifi tether it is adamz kernal that is enabling that on your stock rom

    Re: Droid with 2.1 firmware rooted and not taking rom update

    admaz is not in rom manager but there are the p3 kernals i just do not know if they work well outside of cyanogen based roms so i would not advise doing so without someone confirming those work

    adamz kernal is linked on the download page for bugless beaqst 0.9 if you want to google that i would find it for you if i was at a pc
