    The SPRecovery file does not get loaded onto the SDcard.

    Install RSD Lite onto your windows computer.

    Run RSD Lite from your computer and install the sprecovery.sbf file with RSD Lite after browsing for it on your computer.

    Once installed grab a rom and put that on your SDcard.


    Reboot into SPRecovery on your phone, backup your current config and then install the rom.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    I still don't think you have answered the question. What does the recovery screen way when you first hold down x then press power while still holding the x button

    I was talking about the .sbf file. I just tried to flash again and it still gives me the same error regardless of what file I used.

    This is the best part, when I hold down X and power on the device it goes straight to the back up screen, where you can wipe the cache/partition, and do a factory wipe/backup or reboot the phone. There's not triangle thingy anymore /!\

    It sounds like your still in stock recovery. You need to use christim sbf to root and unroot. Its in his sig. Have you ever used rsdlite? Read up.

    Above you have stated you tried to get the sprecovery file (the SBF file?) onto your card. That SBF file never has to go onto your card. It stays on the PC.

    However, it sounds like you now have SPRecovery installed on your phone.

    At the top of the screen it should tell you the recovery version.

    If it looks like this, then you have SPRecovery installed:

    sounds like you have sbrecovery flash through rsd what exactly are you trying to do now though install a rom through that or through rom manager or what?

    if you can give detailed steps i'm sure someone will know where this is tripping up

    if this is a new unit though there was a batch of droids released a month or two ago that had sd cards that needed to be reformated to work with the hacked recoveries for what ever reason

    Yeah, like they said above, it sounds like you've got the patched recovery which will allow you to install a rooted rom. The .sbf file that you installed is only the recovery (which allows you to install a rooted rom), it doesn't give you root access just by flashing it. You've got to install a rooted rom using the recovery before you can use ROM Manager from within Android.

    Well when I followed the guide I used the files that were in the guide, and every after I unrooted and when back to stock, I tried to root again and that's when I kept getting the error. I re-followed the guide to root-unroot guide, and I still couldn't get the root back and I used the same .sbf file every time. Then I deleted all the files I had and tried 500 other guides with the same result. I get no /!\ when holding X and powering on, it goes straight to the screen with the android in post 16.
