thanks go to motocache and furbearingmammal for their help!!! I am a total noob and followed this guide. It worked perfectly on my windows7 64bit. now have sprecovery and root. I had been lurking here reading this over and over again. somehow expecting it to be harder than this. the only thing i was confused about it exactly when to press the up button to catch the reboot. Got it first try.
Thanks to everybody that contributed to this.
Also used motocache's dropbox link to set up a dropbox of my own. I had no idea what it is or what it does. But now that i did some reading about it, I found out it is a very cool thing to have.

Redownload the ROM file and try it again. If the ROM file is incomplete or corrupted you'll get that error.
WOW! Thanks for the easy to follow guide. After waiting 6 months with a stock Droid 1, i finally decided to hop the fence to the greener side. Now I am running Cyanogen 6 and eagerly wanting to tweak it some more.
Ok i have a question that has probably been answered somewhere in this thread, but really there are just too many pages to go through. I know it is not answered in the OP, so i'll just ask and someone can give me a quick 'yes' or 'no' answer:
My brother used Easy Root to root his Droid when he had FRG01b build. He updated to FRG22D and he lost root, which was fine cuz i told him that would happen and he was cool with it. But now he'd like to root again mainly for the wifi tether and so i was going to use this method to root, which i know how to do and all, but i just want to make sure of one thing. He still has the easy root app, superuser ninja, and a couple root apps installed. So would i just uninstall all those and then use this method to root? And everything will proceed normally? Thank you.
