    RSD lite 4.6 will not recognize my droid. What am I doing wrong?

    Do you have the drivers installed?

    Really sorry as I don't have much advice here but if you don't have the drivers for the device that's probably why its not recognizing it.

    is there a certain program that I need to have to install the recovery? I installed WINWAR to install RSD, anything for the recovery?

    Super sorry, I know a little bit about the droid 2 sbf process but even less about it for the og. I'm like 99% sure there's a detailed thread out there that can help you. I'm trying to find it right now. Its kind of late though so I don't know if you will be able to accomplish it tonight but we'll see what we can do.

    Is this a Droid 2 or Droid 1?

    If it is a Droid 1 you should be fine with rsdlite 4.6 and the proper drivers.
    If its a D2 you need 4.8 and an .ini file and newer drivers.

    Are you using motocache's guide? All instructions are included (only for Droid 1).
