    I'm know I'm close.

    First off I'm on a MacBook, with no Windows alternative, not even BootCamp.

    I used EasyRoot to root my stock 2.2 D1.

    I downloaded "Busybox installer"- did not install yet
    I downloaded "Rom Manager"- installed and created backup on SD card
    I do see "Superuser Permissions tab"

    I downloaded Saphire from here(releases:sapphire-1.0.0 [CVPCS Sapphire Wiki]).

    Put zip file onto my SD card, and also an unzipped folder version (just in case it worked)

    Rom Manager says "Recovery mode is broken, ROM manager doesnt reboot, Other" in tabs. After clicking Install Rom from card and using saphire as the file, i just get the triangle exclamantion mark. I then renamed it update.zip but it still failed.

    As of right now, im on a rooted 2.2 droid 1 with superuser permissions. What step am i missing? Thanks to all.

    My sense is that if you are using RM you need to use RM to download the rom and not go to the Sapphire site. Give that a try.

    I tried downloading CyanogenMod through Rom Manager since Saphire is not available. It downloaded fine and once it finished I hit clear data/cache and it turned off, rebooted to the <!> and nothing. Off and on and I'm back to where I started.

    If you go into Rom Manager scroll to bottom, flash alt. recovery, flash back to clockwork, reboot recovery, if it works you'll be in Clockwork.

    I think the same applies here as the other thread where we are trying to load SPRecovery... The 2.2 update has a bit of code that allows it to recognize when the incorrect recovery is installed and does you a favor and re-installs the correct (stock) recovery.
    Pretty smart they don't actually lock the bootloader but allow you access then when you think all is well the phone reloads the recovery that IT wants!

    I've been reading alot of different threads and it sounds like it's "impossible" to brick the droid so I guess that makes me feel a bit better.

    OP are you positive that you are rooted? Did you install a terminal emulator? If so, open the app and your slider then type SU. The $ will change to # is you are rooted.

    Great! Now open RM and scroll to the bottom and flash the alternative recovery SPR.
