This is the latest development. The guy who created the SBF to put SPRecovery on a 2.2 install is currently working to fix the 2.2 bootloader issue.
And if anyone needs to get ahold of me tonight, I'm having MAJOR signal issues with Verizon, so it'll be spotty to downright impossible.
This is probably the cause of the problem I was having with ROM MGR also.
So reading the linked thread what I get out of it is the bootloader on 2.2 is not locked but if you load a different recovery and it sees the wrong recovery it automatically replaces the recovery with the one it wants...
If that is correct then it is just a matter of time before Droids take over the world:icon_eek:
Pretty much. It's not locked, it's just "smart". However, we're smarter, and can use that in our favor. SCORE!
I have a stock Droid that has 2.2 FRG01B Build 220.127.116.11-g103d848 Kernel. I was really hoping to get wifi tethering and hot spot capability.It looks like my only hope it to root.
The first post in this thread indicates the procedure under option 2 is for those running 2.1 only. Where does a guy with 2.2 begin?
Make sure whatever device you're trying to tether can use an Ad-Hoc network connection before worrying about rooting.
At my wits end. I have tried at least ten sets of "root your droid" directions: abandoned websites, some guy from india, you name it. How do I do this?
