    Trouble with rooting

    Hey guys, I'm following these steps:
    . Downgrade using the 2.0.1 SBF file and follow the instructions here.
    2. [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]Download[/COLOR][/COLOR]
    the 2.1 update.zip from here.

    3. Download the attached .zip file from here, and name it droid-ESE81-update-2.zip

    4. Open [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]command [COLOR=blue ! important]prompt[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR]
    and run the following command to combine them: copy /b signed-voles-ESE81-from-ESD56.fa406da6.zip+droid-ESE81-update-2.zip update.zip (If this is successful then you get a file named update.zip)

    5. Then copy the update.zip to your SDCard (root meaning, inside no folders), reboot to STOCK recovery

    6. In recovery, press Volume + and Camera then use the D-pad to select Apply update.zip

    7. The end result, your Droid has been successfully rooted!

    and I'm stuck at step 5. What exactly is "reboot to STOCK recovery?" I think that means restore to factory settings? I have no idea... So, if someone could tell me what I have to do to "reboot to STOCK recovery" I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

    Oh, and also, in step 5, when it says copy the update.zip to your SDCard, does that mean extract the files within the .zip to the SDcard or just copy "update.zip" and place it on the root of the card?

    Please help, I am sorry for the double post but I must go soon and these are relatively simple questions. Again, I apologize for my impatience but I am short on time here.

    Please help.

    Power off. Then, open your slider, press and hold the "X" and power button until the phone boots.

    I think that means restore to factory settings? I have no idea... So, if someone could tell me what I have to do to "reboot to STOCK recovery" I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

    Just copy. Make sure it is on the root and not in a folder and make sure there is only one ".zip" extensions.
    "update.zip" and place it on the root of the card?
    Hope this helps.

    Actually, the goal for today was to just get my new DRoid rooted, heh. I didn't install a custom rom yet. I will do that first thing tomorrow.
