    Smile New Noob with ROOT Questions?

    Hey guys/girls, great site.. I am ashamed I haven't registered sooner!

    Droid 1 user for around a year now.. I would like to "Root" my phone the correct and hopefully easy way. I have Android 2.2.2, and use Windows 7 on Laptop.

    I figured to go with: Project Elite or another STRONG/EASY Rom.

    Could u tell me where i need to go for info on how to root my device please? I am slightly knowledgeable with computers, in case this matters.

    Sorry if this is a redundant question/topic but I don't know how else to get a little help. Thank u VERY much for taking the time to help a guy out. Good vibes to u! =)

    -Pat

    Copy MotoCache1_Complete_Root_v1.1-update.zip to the root of your phone's SD card and name it as update.zip.

    I am all ready to root my phone but.. Where exactly is the ROOT DIRECTORY for the SD Card? Sorry if this is a stupid question lol. But I honestly dunno.

    The root directory is just the base of your sd card (i.e. not in ANY folder)

    Root Droid 1 - regardless of OS version

    Hopefully the phone will be listed in the grid in the bottom half of the RSD Lite window. Give it a minute or two if it doesn't show up right away. Sometimes it takes Windows a minute (or 2 or 3) to let go of the phone and pick it back up again after rebooting into the bootloader. If after a couple minutes your phone still isn't listed in the "Model" column of the bottom section, in RSD Lite, click Config, Device Id Options, and choose "First-Come-First-ServeDeviceId Mode" and press "OK". RSD Lite may say you need to restart RSD -- if so, do so.


    ...I am not seeing it show? I have restarted RSD lite after checking that option. my phone is in Bootloader menu.

    Wtf? Is this the cause? I looked online seemed people cannot get a855 droid drivers to install correctly with windows.. Maybe this is why RSD Lite doesnt see my phone?
