    Need some help rooting

    I am having trouble getting past the 1st 8 steps of the rooting process. Pathetic I know...

    Anyway, on step 7 where he says run update.zip, I don't have that option. I have apply sdcard:update.zip and that is what I select.

    And this is what I get


    E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command

    --Install from sdcard...
    Finding update package...
    Verifying update package...
    E:EOCD marker occurs after start of EOCD
    E:signature verification failed
    Installation aborted.

    Also, at no point does he even say to remove the USB cord while trying to go to the boot menu but I had to otherwise I couldn't pull up the proper menu.

    Help me out please. it's 4 am and I wanna get this done before I go to sleep. Thanks in advance

    Ok, so I made sure that I saved it in the proper menu location of I and only I. Not I/whatever, just I. I checked to make sure it wasn't update.zip.zip under properties of the file and it was not. However, I did notice that it wasn't update. anything at all so I changed it to update.zip and tried to root again, no bueno. help me out guys... if you're awake that is...

    I tried again, I get the same error message as I got before and nothing. I tried to reboot from that menu anyway after it was done and my phone did eventually reboot but with some kind of weird force close thing going on. I hit "wait" and it continued to run look normal eevn though it said something about system process failure. I have no idea what I'm not doing right but clearly I'm screwing up somewhere somehow.

    Also, the update file that I am saving and loading on my computer and phone are 10.1megs so it's close to what he said it should be. I'm wondering if the 10.1 and 10.6megs of information he says it should be is what I'm missing.

    Also, something else i noticed, as soon as I went to the recovery menu or whatever, before I try to do the update.zip, I get this:

    Post some more details for us, I'm headed out for the day but it will let someone help you out. What directions? There are a few guides to rooting. You are on a motodroid too, right? (gotta ask because the milestone most likely would fail signature verifications unless something recently has changed). You may want to download the file again.

    "on step 7 where he says" could be any step 7 somewhere. Include the link and help will be along....good luck!

    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, I have a Motorola Droid and this is the guide I am using http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hac...ation-etc.html

    and because my phone is stock, I am running 2.1.
    Thanks again guys. I guess it's pretty obvious I was tired because I forgot to post the most basic needed information assuming that y'all would "magically" know what piece of equipment I am using.
