1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hey Rescue Squad.

    I'm trying to root my step-mom's phone, a Motorola Droid 1, and I've ran into a problem. I flashed SPRecovery using RSD Lite, and now when it turns on, it says there's no service, tells me to connect the charger, and shows a white battery symbol at the top with a red line through it.

    I tried switching her battery with mine, which is fully charged, but it made no difference. I haven't installed any ROM yet, so it's not yet rooted. But I'm freaking out a bit, I'm not sure what's going on.

    There's a chance it may not have been charged enough when I tried doing it, but I'm not sure.

    Also, if I try to do almost anything, it will reboot back to where the word "Droid" shows up, and boots back up. But the same thing happens.

    Any help would be appreciated, I really hope I didn't... break her phone.

    Ask for any more info and I'll try my best. Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: I just installed a 2.2 ROM that also installed the stock recovery, so her phone's fine now. I'm not sure what problem I ran into, but I'm not going to try rooting her phone again.

    What method were you using?

    If you flash a ese81 sbf on to a frg01b phone you will have serious issues because the bootloader is updated past ese (eclair).
