    I was originally rooted using Easy Root on the Droid A855, until the FRG22D update was sent and now the rooting is gone.
    I followed the instructions from

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

    up until when I have to reboot into recovery by turning the phone on while holding down X.

    When I do this it takes me to a screen with a white triangle with an orange exclamation point inside it and a phone laying next to it.
    Because of this, I can't install the update.zip file and therefore can't root my phone. After that I just press the power button to turn it off and it restarts like normal. Does anyone know why it's not taking me to the regular recovery menu?

    Thanks, I appreciate it.

    That is the stock recovery, you press the volume up and camera button to get in. BUT This is the wrong way to root.

    If you follow link 3 in my sig you will be good to go.

    One click root apps like easy root are EXTREMELY unreliable

    So...why can't I update in SPR recovery? When I update I get a message, can't mount /dev /bloc/mb1011k2 (something like that, can't remember the syntax)
