Awesome. Thanks for all your help!
So I flashed sprecovery with no problem. I'm making a backup before i flash the update.zip, but its been saying 'attempting nandroid backup' for about 15 minutes now. Does it normally take that long? Should i pull the battery and try it again?
Hey Cupfulloflol, i have one last question that i hope you can answer. So i got my rooted 2.1 droid with a 1GHz p3droid kernel thanks to you. Everything is working very nicely.
Also, i made a nandroid backup after i installed sprecovery and before i rooted. So if i decided to go back to unrooted (say to receive the 2.2 update whenever that comes), would all i have to do is restore that nandroid backup to return to unrooted form?
