    root ANY phone ...not really

    hey guys ... i rooted my droid 2, helped my grandson root his droid x...and, now, to my son's droid 1 ...i've been working hours trying to get it & WAAAJHJJJ....

    his phone has been updated to the 2.2 ... i tried the "root any droid" ...actually, quite a few times and everything works fine until i try to get it to install the update zip. then, i get a "update.zip install blocked" error msg and everyting is aborted ...actuall, it is "partially rooted" if there is such a thing ..it just needs superuser

    anyway, i've tried the easy rooting method, the step by method, and, have just wasted the day ..does anyone know how i can get this to complete?

    thanks

    I think you need to flash .sbf on that phone back to stock, and then follow the link of root any droid. Something's funny, you can't have a "partially" rooted phone.

    How is it "partially" rooted? You have SPRecovery? Are you allowing the install before you install the update.zip?

    Did you "catch the boot" during the .sbf flashing process?

    Are you making sure the filename is update.zip not update.zip.zip?

    Also if you have SPR loaded, from the .sbf you flashed you should be able to load any rooted 2.2 Rom and gain root access, if you still have the stock recovery you need to do the process again and follow the instructions exactly.

    I assume you used link 3 in my sig to do all of this, if not you should try.

    pc747 - i tried the one click before this post,,,,and again, after i read your post.

    the error i get is: --superuser.apk, failure[:not found (and superuser is in the tools dir); then, error06: failed to give proper permission to su

    ??
    and, when i said, "partially rooteded" i knew it was kind of like being "partialy pregnant, ..impossible," but, i didn't know a way to define what was really happening ..and, i did catch the boot (all three times i tried), i did rename update.zip to update --& i installed before i installed update.zip

    One click root apps are very unrelieable.

    Do you know what recovery you have installed?
