Or you could use ROM Manager and attempt to flash in SPRecovery via the "flash alternate recovery image" option at the bottom. Do it a couple times if it doesn't take the first.
To get back on topic...
Some have said they have issues flashing SPRecovery on top of 2.2
I'm curious if this is everyone or just some people.
The last few PM's I've done (and I'd much rather someone send me a link to the thread they are stuck in than go back and forth via pm's because lots see a thread and only 2 people see a pm) have gone like this:
You are on 2.2 either OTA or manually having installed it via the stock recovery tool. You want to root. We are going to call the rom you want to use the ABC rom and you will rename it update.zip on the root of your card.
1 - install RSD Lite
2 - use RSD Lite to flash the sbf file for SPRecovery
3 - make a backup
4 - use SPRecovery to allow and then install update.zip
5 - reboot and you are running the ABC rom
OR....something happens and you can't run the rom...so:
6 - Use RSD Lite to flash the sbf file for the stock 2.01 file
7- Use RSD Lite to flash SPRecovery
8- make a backup
9 - Flash the ABC rom with sprecovery via the update.zip method
good to go.
When you do step 6, you have a stock phone, android 2.01 as well as the stock recovery tool, so we need to do step 2 (in step 7) again.
And yes...never yank the cord out while using RSD Lite to flash anything to your phone.
To be safe you could do steps 1, 6,7,8,9 to save time, but I'm also curious if 1-5 works for most people?

If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

OK...so, I'm thinking about going over to the dark side (I hear they have great cookies). I've read the guide in the beginning of the thread on using RSD Lite to install SPRecovery.
I have a Droid running stock 2.2 (did the manual update a few days ago), and have a few (noob) questions
Can I install SPRecovery on top of 2.2, and if so which SPRecovery file do I use (a link would be greatly appreciated)?
If I can, after booting into SPRecovery, and making a backup, do I just flash the FRG01B sbf file from Pete's website to get 2.2 rooted?
If not, what would be recommended the recommended path to get 2.2 root on my droid?
Or, do I just have no idea what I'm doing?
