Alright, I got my droid 1 running froyo rooted successfully using this method:
Root Droid 1 - regardless of OS version
No issues there, went exactly as planned. Then I went here to begin the flashing process:
Motorola Droid Full Solution Updated
As soon as I used RSD Lite 4.6 to "Flash SPRecovery_ESE81.sbf file," the phone restarted and now continuously reboots, the battery icon is red with a slash through it, and as soon as a reboot completes I see this error:
"Sorry! Process system is not responding."
From there I can choose a force quit or a wait option, neither really seem to make a difference, if I leave the phone alone it will stay on, but as soon as I unlock it and start looking around or doing anything, it crashes and reboots. I've tried several different things, starting up by holding down x and doing a reset, but that had absolutely zero effect, and that's where I stopped because I'm stuck.
When I look in the About Phone info, it reads:
Android Version: 2.2
Baseband Version: C_01.43.01P
Kernel Version: 2.6.29-omap1-g7fa8788
I'm completely stumped. Any help would be EPIC of you, I have dug around a little to find some ideas but no other issues that I was able to find seem to really match this scenario (including kernels and all that). At any rate, I would greatly appreciate the help on this... it's like a "soft brick," really weird. Thanks so much for your time reading this, these forums have helped me tremendously, so much so that I decided to sign up and participate (something not many forums have convinced me to do).
P.S. I can also still get the the Bootlogger just fine and it reads the USB connection successfully, and I can also still get to recovery mode. The Recovery mode at the top reads"
Android System Recovery <2e>
