    My Droid is no longer rootable...wtf happened?

    I have rooted my phone once and never got the superuser permissions the guide stated I would. I did a back up and got back to stock then tried to re-root my phone. The error I got and am still getting even after trying to root with 2.2 is: blah blah blah (substitute for whatever is here), No such file/directory exists, Install aborted. I am running stock 2.1 update 1 now. Does anybody have any ideas what happened or what the issue is and how I can fix it?

    Have you tried just installing Froyo from stock 2.1?

    Flash SPRecovery from Stock 2.1

    Video: Flashing SPRecovery SBF to Stock 2.1 - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    After completing do an advanced back up on your current system. Check everything.

    Do a wipe of data and cache using SPRecovery

    Install as directed on this link:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...ore-froyo.html

    Your phone will then be rooted with Super Permissions and Froyo installed.

    I will give this a try. The only other thing I've done is try and go back to 2.0.1 and re-root that way, but that failed as well. I will be sure to post a reply with the result tonight.

    So I have gone through the steps of this guide and I still get the same error: (blah blah blah (substitute for whatever is here), No such file/directory exists, Install aborted.) I believe the only thing I would be able to do is use a different memory card or get a different phone correct?

    Take your phone back to stock 2.1 update 1 then follow the link down in my signature to root the phone. Once you get root then you can go and apply any 2.2 Rom you wish. This maybe your only option. The instructions below have not failed me yet. Good luck and if you need help, pm me.

    What file are you using to root 2.1? As far as I know you need to use Rsd to flash sprecovery. Then you load a rooted rom. Then you will have your superuser permissions

    Edit. What recovery are you on?

    I would love to follow another guide but my phone is already on stock 2.1 Any and every guide has failed, but after I went back to stock the first time I successfully rooted something must have went wrong. I will try to get another memory card because that's where I think the problem lies.

    When trying to flash I use the SPRecovery_ESE81.sbf

    angler1 has the right question:

    What Recovery are you on? Stock, Sprecovery, or clockwork?

    What is your end goal? Is there a particular rom you want to get installed? (looks like the ese81.sbf file, Pete's rooted 2.1 rom.)
    The rooted Froyo rom is more recent and in the first link in my signature.

    I don't think the problem will be your card.

    If you already have SPRecovery installed you don't need to use RSD Lite to flash the froyo rom, you can just use SPRecovery.

    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 have tried both of those guides and I still get the same error, and regardless of what guide I've used I still get the same error. For some reason the memory card will not recognize that the SPRecovery file has been loaded onto it.
