    Help Rescue Squad!

    well i was updated to 2.1 but i want to root. so i went back to 2.00 by following directions posted in other threads. some reason it wouldn't let me do 2.01 so i went back to 2.00. then downloaded the zip files to get a rooted 2.1, i renamed the files. but when i go to the command prompt to create a new zip file that i'm supposed to move to the root folder of my droid i'm having trouble. the command prompt says that it cannot find the file specified. please somebody help

    Not sure if this will help you, but I think it will...

    Try downloading DroidMod's DmUpdater and see if you can get your phone rooted going their way...

    You can get it here... DroidMod Updater 11 - DroidMod

    It'll do the work for you. Let me know if you have questions about it!

    Oh, you want the 2.1 stock ota, but rooted...?

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/res...d-2-1-ota.html

    You'll need to be on stock 2.0.1, not sure if this will work on 2.0. To be safe, you will probably have to hunt down the update.zip to manually install 2.0.1, but that guide will get you to using the official 2.1 ota update with root permissions...

    That link is maintained by a member of the Rescue Squad who personally went through the process, so if you have questions on it, feel free to post them in there and he'll be more than happy to help you out! I haven't tried it, so I wouldn't be much help there...

    Darn, I thought the call was to help the Rescue Squad

    You'll find many many people here will offer help, not just the RS.

    I'm confused where you are and where you want to end up. So I'll give generic steps.

    From 2.1 you need to use the 3rd link in my signature to get to 2.01.

    Next you need to root. Use dmupdater or the manual steps in the 1st link in my signature.

    dmupdater will install sprecovery for you, or you can continue in the first link of my sig to install that too.

    Time to make a backup, just in case. Manually that's also in link 1 of my sig or let dmupdater do it for you.

    Next, figure out which rom you are applying and follow those directions.

    If stuck let us know which directions or app you are using and how far (step number) you got.

    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.

    will do, thanks so much

    (edit) okay my problem is when i tried to go back to stock out of the box. i couldn't get the file for 2.0.1 to work, but the file for 2.00 did work, so this set my phone back farther than it was when i bought the thing. any suggestions as to why the 2.0.1 link won't work?

    I'm confused too...thought the OP wanted to run the stock 2.1 update rooted. If you're trying to root and flash a rom like Bugless Beast, or Cyanogen, or Ultimate Droid, take Chris' advice and forget that I exist.

    sorry i don't mean to confuse anybody. i was at the stock 2.1 but i read that you can't root the 2.1, i read that you have to go back to 2.0.1 to root. so i found the thread about root 2.1 ota and i've just been trying to follow the directions. i downloaded rsd lite and the files to go back to stock out of the box, but 2.0.1 wouldn't work, so i had to go back to 2.0 i hope this makes sense

    so i just tried to get back to 2.0.1 again. in rsd lite when i try to flash i get a message saying failed flashing process.

    but this is the same way i did it to get back to 2.0 so i don't understand what could be going wrong
