I used the step 2 option A on a Droid X running the OTA 2.2 update and it worked perfectly. Thanks!!
I'm wondering if there isn't a reason why we can't just run the bin file from the /sdcard/download directory. The d1 can not "cd /tmp" nor copy to tmp without su being in place and su can't be put in place unless you are rooted. Catch 22.
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.

Chris, as I posted in another thread, the problem is that the location where we put the rage*.bin file is phone specific. The manual instructions you have posted is not for the Droid 1. For the Droid 1 (and 2):
This is straight from the text file contained for the droid 1, and looks to be the same in the file for the D2 as well.Code:- adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin - adb shell - cd data/local/tmp - chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin - ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
Tell us what kind of error you're getting, where it didn't catch, or where you ran into difficulty. Simply saying "it didn't work" doesn't give us a whole lot to go on.
When i do the cp rage*.bin /tmp/ step it says rage*.bin does not exist though it shows up in astro.
EDIT: Restarted the phone after downloading the file and everything finished fine. I am now rooted.
