    Droid with 2.1 firmware rooted and not taking rom update

    I just got a Motorola Droid with 2.1 firmware the other day. I installed sprecovery and rooted the phone.

    I am trying to install a rom that will let me use the wifi tether. The stock 2.1 firmware does not have NetFilter in it and so it won’t run.

    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.

    ok then you could always download rom manager thru the market and try installing it thru there with the update.zip...there is a free version and a paid the free version you could download cm 5.0.6.2 and it has wifi tether added n the rom....or the paid version has jrummy"s rom and a bunch of others plus other goodies

    I would be interested in the unltimate droid 10 if I can locate it. I loaded and unloaded the update.zip to the root a good 10 times yesterday trying to get it to be reconized

    you might try rom manager/clockwork recovery if your using the update.zip method that recovery tool works better with that method and you will need to do a data wipe moving to a CM based rom

    did you use the spf rooting method?

    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
