    *** HELP i jacked up my OG droid***

    okay, so I just tried to re root since FRG 22 D and I was trying to install frg 01B and then root that. I opened RSD lite and connected my phone, all was going well I selected the SPRecovery_ESE81.sbf and pressed start. It loaded for a while and the once it was done my phone is garbage. I have no Battery and it keeps restarting every 20 seconds or so. I restarted loaded a nandroid restore, didn't change anything. I did a factory wipe, didn't change anything. I have looked around on forums all over the place and I cant seem to fix it. Please help. The phone restarts so fast I cant even really mess with it that much. I'm afraid its jacked up bad now and im screwed. But im a rooting Noob so im hoping im wrong

    I believe that's an Eclair .sbf but I could be wrong. Why would you downgrade before rooting?

    If you like my work or I have helped you out and you would like to help me keep the lights on, it is greatly appreciated!!

    I was under the impression that the FRG 22D has rooting issues and a friend told me if i downgrade I can root and install cyanogen and be good

    There might be a link in my signature to help you with that.

    Or there might be another method that doesn't require a PC at all.

    But I'd go with the first option, personally. And Droid Does!! is right (something you won't hear someone on this forum say very often about a Verizon Rep), the file you tried to flash is the wrong one. You put a 2.1 kernel on your 2.2 phone. It's not going to work really well. Can you get into recovery now?

    Yea i can get into system recovery, and it doesn't restart.

    ..."but at that point you are majorly risking the flash failing and/or a boot loop. Since you probably don't want that, please charge your phone for at least half an hour before continuing."

    Maybe its a boot loop?? sounds like whats happening

    possible fixes

    Okay. You can either install a new kernel and boot normally or you can install CM6, CM6.1RC4, or a CM nightly (my recommendation) and the app pack from here. Choice is yours.

    Put RSD Lite out of your mind. You've moved past it and hopefully will never need to see it again.

    All installs will be made from SPRecovery.

    What I'd recommend is you do is install a kernel and take some time off. Consider getting a functional phone with no loss of data a win at the moment. Can always pick up after a good night's sleep, no? Of course, I'm more than willing to help with the other methods if you want to pursue them tonight.

    Choice is yours.
