    Hey Guys, I'm a noob so go gentle, lol. I'm running WinXP. I Have a Droid 1 with FRG22D installed yesterday. I downloaded 32bit drivers and RSD Lite v4.6. I followed The root instructions to a tee. When I scroll down to Install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated) the installation starts but then says install blocked. Installation aborted. Any suggestions?

    Hey Moto, Like everyone else, I truly appreciate your guide. As for my problem...I figured it out. I forgot to hit allow update.zip before hitting install. If I could learn to read better, my life would be a whole lot simpler, lol. Thanks again. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks, MotoCache1. Your instructions are great and after studying them and reading all 34 pages of comments, I feel I've learned much. I had no issues with the new bootloader and root access on my FRG22D Moto Droid 1. Good to do all this the right way. Thanks for your hard work and willingness to help. You Rock!

    You have stock recovery. Either you didn't do the RSD Lite part, or you did but you let the phone reboot all the way into the OS before doing the update.zip. You have to start back over at step #4.

    motocache1 ... i was referred to this thread from another forum member. i'd like to root my phone (first timer)... i have some questions i was wondering if you could explain:

    i do not have a TON of apps, just some, maybe 10-12. a lot are free but a few are paid for. will i experience an issue reinstalling any apps after rooting ?

    for apps, i use Astro to back them up. for data (contacts, etc.) i use mybackup pro. would i be able to use these programs to restore my apps and data after rooting ? after root i plan to use Ti to backup stuff.

    lastly, i am just looking for anything else i might expect to do or encounter that is not straight forward and not in the guide on post # 1 ...

    thanks

    Rooting isn't going to change/disturb any of those things you asked about. You will not need to restore anything. Having the backups anyway is smart.

    Thank you for this guide. Some day I will root, but being a pessimist, I assume something will go wrong! Plus my windows box is in the non air conditioned room in the house!

    Thank you again for all of your work! Very thorough!

    Sweet!

    Got 2.2 FRG22D OTA Update, followed steps to a "T," and it worked absolutely perfectly. No problems at all.

    Then went to XDA to update to latest SU. Noticed the later version in the OP sig line... Figured I'd check into it.

    THANKS!!!!
