I am having a problem in rooting my moto droid. I am a noobie (sort of), I had the G1 (never rooted) for close to two years and got the droid about a month ago. I am using the instructions on this site ( How To Root Your 2.1 Droid | Android Community ) and I have downloaded rsd lite, the 32 bit driver (I am using vista 32bit), and the .sbf file. I have gotten my phone plugged in and to the "program screen" (I don't know the technical term), and pull up the "rsd lite" program, put the file location in the "filename" search box (the file is not on my desktop, it is in my downloads folder on my hard drive, i read that that may be a problem), and the "start" button stays grey.
I have tried several forum sites and tried many things...
one of the sites is ( [How-to] Trouble flashing with RSD Lite in Vista/Windows 7 - Motorola Development Community ) and it asks you to input in "command promt" the firmware i am flashing to my phone. I am not sure to replace those "xxxx"'s with. but i don't think that this will help because there is no filename in the folder "rsdlite" labeled "SDL.exe -f xxxx.sbf -t 2" anyways.
please help me with this as best as you can.
