    Help! I kind of Fubared my Phone

    So I decided to root my phone to run stock 2.1 rooted. So I down graded my OS to 2.01 using RSDLITE 4.6. Durring the flash I got a Failed at 97%. The phone would turn on but just a blank white screen. I then tried flashing again. This time the bootloader comes up with this message..........

    Bootloader 2C.6C
    Code Corrupt.


    So I figure maybe the image was bad. So went out and got another image and then reflashed. It makes it a 100% in rsdlite but says failed. Phone reboots with 2.01 on it appears fine except two things it won't login to google even over WIFI. When I try to use the phone. I get Not registered on network. I can't do *228. Any idea how to fix it I just want 2.1 back. I use the phone for business. I should know better. Please guys help me

    now that you have 2.01... even if some things don't work, you're FINE!

    1. follow the instructions to root 2.01. If the market doesn't work, use the update.zip method.

    2. install a new ROM. Pick one.

    You'll now have a fully functional rooted 2.1 system

    I should be able to activate my phone though right I can't. What if I don't want to root it now?

    You might as well, you've gotten this far. But, just try logging into your Gmail again, sometimes it does that.

    Ever heard of it not giving you a option to reactivate service? When I dial *228 I get not registered on network.

    No, but I'm guessing it has something to do with the baseband. Because in 2.0.1 we had the .01P baseband, and on 2.1 we have a .03P baseband.

    Dude. Your flashing didn't work. You're halfway to a useful phone.

    Flash a new ROM. It will work. Ideally you'll flash a 2.1 ROM with the new Baseband, but that's up to you.

    after that *22891 should be fine (same as *228 option 1)

    Also you want to sign into google (gmail) to get the market, etc. to work.

    E

    EDIT: JCO352 said pretty much the same thing while I was typing... go to a new ROM with 2.1 and the new Baseband and everything will be OK.

    RSDLITE is joke software. Unless you have a dedicated system with just the right config from Motorola it is flaky. If it wasn't you could just flash the 2.1 rooted stock ROM. (Although you could try that. Won't hurt anything).

    So after I have 2.01 is there a update.zip to upgrade me to 2.1? Know where I might find it? I really appreciate your quick replies

    If you want to use the "update.zip" method, you'll want to
    1. root your 2.01
    2. install any 2.1 ROM



    If you want to SBF/RSDLITE it, use the 2.1"stock"+root SBF.
