    Ok, I have an idea that might work if you really need to mount your sdcard download the free app multi mount widget

    Nope, just try a different rom. If you're on the forums app its under Droid hacking> custom roms
    For a newbie something like project elite would be a good start

    can I do that from my phone. I will not have the option of downloading it to my computer and then moving it to my phone since my computer and phone will not see each other.

    Yup, its easy, the rom downloads will be found in the downloads folder on the sdcard

    Oh don't forget whenever you install a new rom you always wipe data and cache in recovery (actually its best to wipe system too, I think its under either advanced or mounts, I can't remember, I don't use that recovery anymore) only time you don't wipe anything is if you are updating that particular rom, I.e. liquid 2.6 to liquid 3.0

    OK, I think I may have bricked my phone I ran to the store and got a microsd card, loaded the FRG83g origional software on it. renamed it update.zip and installed it. I am now in a forever loop between the droid eye and the word droid. I have pulled out the battery and it will not let me back into clockwork recovery. Now what?

    Did you wipe data and cache after restarting?

    Have you been downloading with your phone the whole time?

    If you can't get in to recovery,sounds like it's time to use rsd lite.
