    Help! I've rooted before a lot but have never run into this problem

    Hi there, I just rooted for the fourth time (fourth new phone) and i got almost through RSD lite to flash sprecovery...actually, sprecovery is installed on my phone, but every time I boot it up I get a red battery icon with a line through it then a message saying process system is not responding. I was able to boot into sprecovery and I went ahead and installed the root file anyway hoping that would solve the problem, but same thing...now my phone is doing endless boot loops and not working...btw droid 1, just got it from asurion as a replacement device

    Thanks! 2.2.1 and I all I see when I boot into sprecovery is:

    Android system recovery <2e>

    Patched by SirPsychoS (0.99.3b)

    Did I use a version that was too old? Is this some kind of new blockage if you try to root your phone?

    Ok, my guess is either a bad download, you didn't "catch the boot", or a combination of both. Grab the stock sbf and try reflashing it. That should restore your system files. Then redownload and flash motocache's SPRecovery sbf. Pay attention to your phone while flashing that second sbf. You need to catch the boot on that one. 2.2.1 reflashes the stock recovery on reboot. I have done 3 phones with that method. My phone didn't need any intervention. One friends phone gave me fits until I held the X key when RSD rebooted the phone, and on the other one I needed to press up on the D-pad to boot back into the boot loader. I'm going to bed and will check back in 5 hours when I get up to see if you need more help. Good luck!

    You have a 2.1 kernel installed on a 2.2 build.

    You will either need to install a ROM or a new kernel.

    Actually, the cable came out of his phone while flashing SBF. Not a kernel issue at all, just a system corruption. Trying to get it straightened out with a stock SBF.

    Thanks, sorry I started two threads on this, I'll stay on this one since it pertains to my problem in particular and can maybe help others. I'm going to flash back to stock as soon as it downloads...I'll let you know how it goes. I'm on Maui so my time is a little different, just woke up
