    forced the 2.2 update, tried to load SPrecovery to get root back and can't

    I forced the update 2.2 and decided I wanted wireless tether back. So I used RSD to go back to 2.0.1 and that worked just fine, but when I try and reflash SPrecovery, it loads and then just hangs at the M, I have had to go back several time and just re-install stock 2.0.1, seems they have done something to not allow root after the upload.

    The SPRecoveryESE81.sbf file will NOT work on anything but a Droid 1 running the STOCK ESE81/2.1.

    ohfire, if you are still on 2.0.1 and want to root it and install SPRecovery, the easiest way is to use this file here:


    Download it, and if the extension gets changed to .zip change it back to .apk. Put it on your sdcard, then using Astro, select it and install it. If it still works then just follow the prompts and you will have rooted, busybox, and SPRecovery.

    If that doesn't work, I have two guides for you:

    Rooting your 2.0.1 Droid and Installing busybox

    Installing the SPRecovery Image Manually

    good luck

    EDIT: the dmupdater no longer works.
