    I have a moto droid running 2.1 and want to Root. I sync my phone to PC then shut it off. Then open up rsc lite and power on the phone holding up on the d pad. My computer blue screens right after.

    I tried running my PC in safe mode it doesnt blue screen but doesnt show the droid connected in RSC. Running windows XP sp2.

    Never seen this problem on the forums before, try the root again without safemode, take note of the error code of the blue screen, and paste it here and/or some other computer forum.

    Safe mode doesn't allow the computer to load 3rd party drivers.

    If you are getting a BSOD, I would probably guess that it is because of a driver or an app that is watching the USB ports and clashing with the Motorola USB drivers.

    Do you have any software installed for phones other than the Droid (HTC Sync, Blackberry Desktop, etc.)?

    im not sure if this helps, but it seems like like the drivers make you get the blue screen. does it only blue screen when your droids connected?
