Thanks MotoCache1! I was able to follow the directions no problem. Now I see the "Superuser v126.96.36.199." Should I be able to see busybox or does it run underneath?
If you're going to install the update you have to do it manually -- otherwise SPRecovery will block it. This is what it's designed to to. If you followed this guide to root you're familiar with the process of manually installing an update.zip file via recovery, so that shouldn't be an issue once you have the file. If by help you mean links to manually download the 83D file, I can do that easily enough and will be happy to do so. If you wish to flash a ROM, well, that's beyond the scope of this thread but it's performed in the exact same manner and I will PM you links to a couple of ROMs you can try. Just let me know what you need so I can help.
Worked perfectly. Just rooted my wife's Droid 1. Would've gone through rhetoric first time, but I forgot I manually updated her phone to froyo back in August, and the update.zip was interfering with the update.zip to root. After I deleted it, it went through flawlessly. Thanks forth the guide.

Help! I just followed these instructions on my remanufactured asurion replacement phone after doing it successfully 3 different times. This time I got all the way through rsd lite, got sprecovery installed, and now when my phone boots up I get a red battery icon with a line through it and a message saying system force close (android system). Is this some kind of new blockage for keeping people from rooting? Did I do something wrong? Maybe I need to flash back to stock and try again? Any help would be awesome! Oh, btw Moto Droid 1 and the files I used are the ones in the OP of this thread
