I just bought a new Motorola Droid with Android 2.1 installed. I am trying to gain root access to my phone, but I am encountering an error that I can't seem to find a solution to. I am following the guide at Gadgets DNA , and when I get to the step of loading the Android's System Recovery I immediately get the error "E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command" when the recovery console loads. I cannot edit the cache folder because my phone is not rooted. In the recovery console, I have tried clearing the cache and wiping my droid's contents back to factory defaults. I still get this error. When I tried to load the combined zip file as stated in the guide, I get another error message:
"E:EOCD marker occurs after start of EOCD"
"E:signature verification failed."
The installation then aborts.
It seems as if I have two separate problems. One is that the /cache/recovery/command folder cannot be accessed by the recovery console. The other is a signature verification issue during the root update installation. A cache wipe and factory reset both do not fix either of these problems.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
