I hope this does not seem off-topic, but I am looking for ANY kind of help I can get right now. I have been researching different sites telling how to root phone to upgrade to 2.1 and I decided to go with
Loading DroidMod Roms with DMupdater, Reflashing to Older Sholes/DroidMod Roms
The original post explained how to do everything and a lot of other people seem to have no trouble doing this. What I linked was the current last post by PetRiLJoe , and the trouble I am having. I can no longer see anything but the Motorola Logo but I can access SPRecover and I attempted to wipe cache, data, and update.zip / sd card update zip. I also went into Nandroid and repeated all that wiping before I attempted to Restore my pre-install backup copy that was created right before I attempted this root process. Everything I attempt ends up in me rebooting and still seeing this Motorola logo.
The install instructions for this site list Nandroid + ROM Manager... but I do not know how to simply use JUST Nandroid or JUST SPRecover to try to get this to load on my Droid. I am not new to computers, and I can generally do things myself, but I may have jumped into the Droid thing too fast without researching everything. I followed the steps exactly on that site and on the very last step at the reboot process, when everything seemed to be going well, this happened and now I'm stuck on the Moto logo.
Can I just rename this file to update.zip instead of the update.zip file that obviously did not help me fix my problem then load it and see if it works? Is that a safe thing to do?
If I get absolutely nothing else done, I just want my Droid working again past this Moto logo. I am interested in modding it past the 2.0.1 original state but at this moment in time I am more interested in getting it working again, so any and ALL help is appreciated. I was simply hoping this update / install could help me and it seems to be a pretty active community here.
At this moment I have my Droid connected to my computer, with SD card mounted using SPRecover, hoping I can copy over some files or update to fix this Droid and use SPRecover or Nandroid to do it.
If the link I posted does not work here is the text containing my reply, to which I have not gotten any replys yet.
I have followed these steps exactly from the OP and on step 35 (I think the last step where it reboots and is supposed to startup rooted) my Droid rebooted but never got past the Motorola logo.
I have (or had) a 2.01 Verizon Droid using this guide attempting to do this. I flashed the ROM and got a 70+ MB download .. did everything as the guide stated. For any more information on the matter post a reply asking me and I'll try to get back to you on it. I don't know what to do from here. I took the battery out and put it back in, still stuck.
I am editing this post to write that I can access SPRecover, I did so by holding X during bootup after taking the battery out and putting it back in. I'm not sure how to use this to recover my device but it did supposedly make a Nandroid backup before all this happened, as I was on the last step when all this happened. Can I recover from that using SPRecover? I am searching this forum and Google but can not find the right steps for help based on my current problem.
Editing this post again to state that I navigated through SPRecover to simple Nandroid restore (latest) and I am still stuck at the Motorola Logo. Any support or advice on this matter would be appreciated...
