      I need to set slacker as my default music player. Everytime My Motorola Droid running 2.2 connects to the bluetooth the standard player starts. Before 2.2 slacker would start and I could control slacker with the car controlls. But not after the upgrade. Can you please help everyone else seems to ignore the question.

      Hey christim!

      I was having some trouble with creating a nandroid backup.

      I rooted my droid using these instructions:

      Another Android 2.2 FRG22D Rooting Method for the Motorola DROID - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

      and I rooted and everything worked fine. I tried creating a custom recovery with ROM manager but I didn't get that to work. I used instructions found on this website:

      How to: Root DROID From 2.2 Limitless DROID

      starting from where it says "Installing a custom recovery." I couldnt get the "Reboot into Recovery" screen to popup even after holding X. That's how I came to find your thread and ended up messaging you since you know a lot about rooting. Any idea on what's going on? I just wanted to create a nandroid backup before I did anything else.

      Good morning. I just saw your new update on rooting with the terminal emulator and mentioned that stevewitt ( don't remember if that's correct ) rooted the DX without any problems but you also mentioned you might try to figure out a different way. So does this mean the method presented is ok and I can proceed to root my DX?

      Hi, again. U may or may not have gotten my reply from this morning but just in case this was an error I made I will reply here and this is concerning how im unable to download the rs-files which include rageinthecage-arm5.bin, superuser.apk and su. What I do is that I open up the root files folder click on one the documents ( does not matter wich of the three ) then I scroll down and proceed to press the download button only to see nothing happening I get no error messeges. I also noticed there are two download buttons one at the bottom and one at the top but neither one works. Also I'm trying to root a droid x with froyo using the terminal emulator because I currently don't have a computer any help would be appreciated. Sorry if you did get the previous messege and haven't had time to respond again I apologize if that was the case. Thank you

      Hi. I have been having problems trying to download the rs-files to root my droid x. Is there something I'm doing wrong or do I need to change some of my phones settings to be able to download these files. If not is there a possibility I can download these some other way? I currently don't have a computer and I decided to root using the terminal emulator, how can I download these files through my phone. The files are the following... rageinthecage-arm5.bin, superuser.apk and su.

      Correct, no matter what is on your phone, you can apply a SBF file through rsdlite. The thread you mention has a non-rsd lite method of getting back to stock too. You can try that.

      Hey Christim,

      I have used Rsd Lite before to flash the 2.0.1 .sbf and it worked fine.
      I'm trying to do it again by following your guide (which is fantastic by the way). I put the phone into bootloader mode with it connected to my laptop, run Rsd Lite in Admin mode, select my phone, but when I browse for the .sbf and add it to the filename box the start button stays grayed out.

      I have read in your thread others having sucsess by changing the filename, I've also tried this and by deleting letters in the filename I can get the start button to become ungrayed but when I finally get the file properties to come up in the right-hand box and I click start it just fails and says "internal error while programming phone"

      Please help if possible, as my phone has been acting weird and I want to take it back to stock and start over.

      Also correct me if I'm wrong but it shouldn't matter what base or ROM is on the phone now right, I mean they use this to save save phones that won't even boot up!

    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.
