So I am using XP and when I run RSDLite it can never find my phone even after setting it to first come first serve setting. What am I doing wrong?
edit: figured it out, I am a moron and never installed the drivers....

I have gone through every write-up that I have run across and and still running into the same issue. Prior to the Verizon attempt at upgrading to 2.2, I was happily running BB 0.4 ROM with no issues. I even upgraded the ROM a couple of times to later versions.
Although I would occasionally get the message for the 2.2 upgrade, I would ignore it. Recently, I decided I wanted to change my ROM to Frozen Yogurt, and started attempted to get into the bootloader menu re-powering while pressing X. All that did we constantly keep displaying the M logo, but would not boot. Once I let go of X, then it booted just fine into BB 0.4
I then decided to do the SPRecover mode using the files that I listed on the first page of this thread. I am running Windows 7 virtualized under Virtualbox. I have checked to make sure that RSD has administrative rights. Everytime I attempt to load SPRecover, it seem to start correctly, until it is time to do the re-enumeration at which point it fails.
I am not a Windows person, so maybe I don't have the admin rights set correctly? Cuold someone give me a pointer on what I might be doing wrong? Just trying to get to another ROM before the turn of the year.
I am not sure if that message was to me, but now time for an update. There is a reason why one virtualizes Windows. It is because no one should waste a decent machine on a problem OS.
Switching over to my handy ubuntu box, in a matter of seconds, SPRecovery was loaded on my phone. The issue came up with I attempted to load MotoCache's update.zip. It failed saying I was blocked from updating. When I REBOOTED, I was back to a very vanilla Bugless Beast 0.4. Keep in mind that I wiped user and cache data. Tried this several time and realized I am stuck with BB 0.4. Thank goodness for a nandroid backup.
So how does one do an update without being blocked? Afterall, FY or Chevy is calling my name!

But, before I tell you what to do, did you use sbf_flash on your Ubuntu box? Just curious as I've not used it yet and if that's what you used, it's good to know it actually works.
The only "blocked" I can think of that you'd get in SPRecovery would be if you skipped this step:
As far as what you had after rebooting, if all you did was flash SPRecovery, and your rooting install didn't go, then nothing else changed on your phone that would affect your BB.15. Now highlight "Allow update.zip Installation" and choose it. [It will appear to do nothing -- that's normal. If you're unsure if you clicked it or not, choose it twice, it won't hurt.]
Let me know (on both counts -- if the above fixes you and if you used sbf_flash).
