    I was trying to install bugless on my motorola droid however whenever I try and restore from the rom I get a "nandroid exited with error code 25". I looked up the error and the rom is in nandroid/FRF84BV04/ just like its supposed to be. Inside the FRF84BV04 folder are two folders called META-INF and system and a file called boot.img. I've tried with several different roms and still getting this error, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Make sure the file is not named .zip.zip which happens a lot, if that pans out ok, re download the file and try it again.

    Im aware that error code 25 means that you have too many subfolders but from what I've read I have it set up correctly. And the folder has been unzipped before it was put into the nandroid folder on the sd card.

    Open the folder any way. See a boot image or another folder? You need to peel the exterior folders away and verify the boot image is in the first folder.

    Inside of the nandroid folder is the rom FOLDER and inside of that is the boot.img file...is that incorrect?

    Did you unzip everything to a new folder? Or just unzip it? System, boot, and ROM all needs to be in one folder only.

    PS are you sure its a nandroid, and not in .zip format? If it is .zip format, just rename file update, then in sp recovery, allow update (first) and then apply update (deprecated) Make a good advanced nandroid backup first! (I am sure you have)

    By looking at your OP it is in update.zip format. Do not unzip. Rename to update.zip for sprecovery or leave it alone for clockwork.

    Sorry I'm a little confused, what am I renaming to update.zip?

    And since you posted in the bugless section, and that is in .zip format, I am sure thebowers is right.

    Just rename file update windows will ad the .zip you should start with the original file and let sp recovery update (and unzip it for you) check my sig for an in depth guide on update.zip installations. Read first, get comfy, and then do it right! You will be using the same steps as root 2.1 with sp recovery in the guide to install your ROM:)

    I renamed the .zip that I downloaded update and tried to restore from that directly and I still got the error 25 message.

    If you were doing a true restore you wouldn't get that error because you would just be restoring a backup of your own. It sounds like you are doing a update.

    So as others have stated, if you are using windows just rename the file to update. Then make sure it is not inside any folder, not even the nandroid folder. It needs to be on the root of the sd card itself. Meaning when you open you sd card up, you should see it there not inside any folders. Then attempt to update again.

    Is it on the root of you sd card? The location should be SD\update. If you have it here in SD\nandroid\update, it won't work.

    If using SPRecovery, select install at the bottom, then select allow update.zip. The last thing to select after allow update.zip is install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated).
