    So I am a noobie to rooting and after a long and hard decision making process I decided to root. I followed the guide on here for "rooting the droid regardless of os" and got my Success message at end that said enjoy your root. My problem now is that once I rebooted it goes to the home screen but I have a red battery icon with a line through it. Then it reboots, again and again. It will stay on for about 45 seconds and reboots. I don't know what happened and now I don't know what to do. I did get a chance to get my phone info Baseband: C_01.43.01P
    Kernal Version 2.6.29-OMAP1-g7fa788
    Android Build @apa26#1
    Build Number FRG22D by Pete

    Someone Please HELP!!!

    Just for reference, so the thread has a useful explanation in it and not just a solution. If you root a 2.2 phone using the SPR for ESE81 .sbf file this will happen every time. The ESE81 file flashes a 2.1 kernel along with the recovery image. This is the reason for the rebooting and no battery indication. When you reboot recovery, wipe, and reflash your rom the kernel that comes with the rom is reflashed.
