Absolutely fantastic...FRG22D left me stuck in stockland...this did the trick
FRG22D - stock, rooted (I bow to MotoCache1 - Rooting the Droid 1 - regardless of OS version)
P3 kernel - 22.214.171.124-P3Droid
setCPU 2.0.2 - OCed - 1000 MHz
Fly little birdie...FLY
MotoCashe1 and all,
I rooted successfully but not with some issues getting the "start" button in RSDLit 4.6 to light up with the .SBF file listed in the OP. I followed the instructions’ to the "T" but no matter what I did the button would not light up except for 1 time. I tried doing the “space” at the end of the file name before the .sbf. This did not work. Tried just renaming it, nothing and tried moving the file and rename it, nope nada zip nothing worked per other posts in Droid Forums I was able to find searching. So in doing some research and using Google I was able to find a post to help me dig and figure out my issue to get the .SBF flashed to my phone per the instructions in MotoCashe1 OP.
Before I forget I am running windows 7 64 bit and installed the Motorola 64 bit drivers and RSDLite about 2 weeks ago. At this point I was ready to root until I discovered the issues being described in SBF Root and Unroot post. I waited to see how to work around these bootloop/kernel/recovery issues so I could learn a little bit, thanks MotoCashe1. Your attention to detail helps me a lot and am able to learn.
Now to my issue. At 1 point in my trying to flash the sbf I did get the "start" button to light up once. A this point when I click the button I got an error of "Failed Flashing process. (0x7100)". I did a search on Google and found a post here (being a newbie not sure I can do this link to another forum let me know if I am incorrect in doing this) and when I got to post number 32 by rezo, (just what I was looking for) I did what the post said and only needed to delete the "flasherrorlog" files in the RSDLite folder and restart RSDLite. At this point I was in business.
If anyone else has an issue getting the sbf in the OP to work with RSDLite please follow this (also in the post I found):
From rezo's post:
Go into the directory you installed RSD Lite (for Win7 x64 the default is C:\Program Files (x86)\Motorola\RSD Lite\) and look for a file that starts with "FlashErrorLog". Open it, and if you see something like this:
ERROR: \\?\c:\SPRecovery_ESE81.sbfwtƒyoþÿÿÿ‚qawñrawðiµ was not found.File: X:\test_dev_usb\flash\code\flashdll\PST_FP_FlashFi leIO.cpp
Do the following:
This was all I needed to do. If it does not work for you please read the post I listed earlier.
- Go to the folder where you installed RSD Lite
- Delete any files that start with "FlashErrorLog"
- Right click on "SDL.exe" and click "Run As Administrator"
- Try step 9 (make sure you read and re-read step 10 first) again
- follow the rest of MotoCashe1 OP
To everyone at Droid Forum and MotoCashe1 for this post it is much appreciated.
EDIT: Provide the exact link the post I used to help me. The exact link is here.
