I am a new poster but a longtime reader, I have spent the last two days trying to root my droid however somewhere I have gone terribly wrong and now my phone is stuck in "softboot" I believe (droid to droid eye over and over again). I am pretty sure successfully rooted it using this method from droidmod because I had superuser permissions app in my apps, I built a backup using sprecovery and installed busybox. From there I was lost on what to do and I continued reading blogs and the forums to get the features I was looking for which was basically all of them (wifi tether, overclocking, customization and more power with my phone). I got the ROM manager and now I have clockwork instead of sprecovery when I go to my boot screen. I did not make a backup and I tried to install the ultimate droid 9 and I did it OTA and then moved it to my sdcard (on my mac), I then tried to open it through ROM manager but I don't think I did it right, I didn't change the name to update.zip and I just installed it from my sdCard
I have been thinking about rooting my phone for a long time and I finally decided to make the plunge, I have done almost everything I can short of rooting, and I wanted to root for more speed because I love having widgets and I also wanted better widgets.
I am now interested in learning this process even more thoroughly but I am scared of further damaging my phone. Ideally if there is anyone in Colorado, I could meet with to show me and help me with my phone I would more inclined to do it that way, however even anyone thinks they can help me online that would be great.
Thanks in advance
