    attempting to root droid..press start in rdslite and nothing special is happening.

    alright, I'm completely new to this and I'm attempting to root my droid from 2.1 which I manually updated awhile back. I'm pretty sure I have all I need. I made a folder called nandroid in my root of my sd with the froyo upadate 2010(whatever u call it) inside the folder, I download the 32 bit driver and so on. I've successfully got to the bootloader menu of my droid where is says battery ok and ok to program. anyway as I said, I have rdslite open I press START and NOTHING IS HAPPENING... my pc says found new hardware and is offering me to install SE Flash OMA..blablabla..DO I INSTALL THAT TOO? Cuz the tutorials I used just said to press start in rdslite from..yeah u get my point.
    I appologize of my noobness and if this is in the wrong section. lol plz help me its likr 90 degrees in my basement and Im all over the place here...
    AND I APOLOGIZE IF THIS IS IN THE WRONG SECTION I JUST WANTED TO GET THIS POST AFTER CUZ IM VERY UNCOMFORTABLE SITTING HERE LOL

    You need the sprecoveryese81.sbf file on your PC then navigate to it from rsdlite then click start.

    If you have Astro on your phone try the rename option and make sure the file is named update.zip and not update.zip.zip.
