    Finally rooted!

    I seem to be having one last problem.

    I rooted with Z4Root and I downloaded the Liberty .zip file direct from the website.

    now I''m on the step where I need to Flash the new Liberty Rom using ROM Manager. problem is, when I downloaded the Liberty Rom from the browser, it automatically put it in my generic "downloads" file. it says that I need to open ROM Manager and "Install ROM from the SD Card" but I don't see any folders that are specific to the SD Card.

    I guess what I'm basically asking is how do I now transfer the Liberty .zip file from the downloads folder to an SD Card folder so that I can then flash it?

    you can install from the download directory. I wouldn't use ROM manager to do it....dl droid bootstrap and use that. JMO

    okay I'll look into that. thanks. but one more thing of concern.....all this time I've been using ROM Manager. will it matter if I suddenly change the app I'm using for this final stage?

    I could be wrong here but I thought there were issues with ROM on D2 and DX's. Again, I could be wrong but I haven't used it much after reading a thread about that somewhere.

    I dunno. it worked fine up until this point. now I don't know which directory to put the Liberty ROM file so that I can flash it. it says it has to be the SD Card file but I don't see any such directory, not outright, anyway.

    tried bootstrap but the link to the free download is dead and I've never had any success downloaded from google checkout via the android market.

    you aren't looking for an "sd" folder...you are looking for download directory....what do you see when you first open it?

    okay so apparently I just had to extract the Liberty ROM .zip file out of the sdcard/download folder and put it in the regular /sdcard folder. still doesn't seem to be working though.

    after I click on Reboot and Install the phone reboots but nothing is changed.

    For the DX, D2, D2G, Pro, you need Bootstrap to flash Clockworkmod Recovery. To my knowledge, ROM Manager can't do that on those models. Bootstrap also makes ROM Mangler irrelevant. Its worth what Koush is asking for it! If its that bad, try emailing him to see if he'll send it to you. He put A LOT of time and effort into that app so, I'd say a $2 donation isn't really out of the question

    the first boot takes a while.....I would just wait a few.
