    Basically, you install the same way on a Droid1 as you do with your Droid X. Place the downloaded rom at the root of her SD card (not in any folder) using a USB connection then reboot into recovery and choose to install from zip file on SD card. If you're using SPRecovery, you'll have to rename the zip file "update.zip" (without the parenthesis). Then choose the zip you want to install and let the recovery program do it's thing. It's always a good idea to wipe data and cache before the actual installation.

    Easy as pie - you should have no problems, as the Droid 1 was the easiest of all the phones to root and theme.

    I think I might have a bad link because I did all that and it even said it was finished and installed and all it did was put her phone to where it was

    You dowloaded the zip file to your PC - correct?

    If you reboot her phone while holding down the x do you go into recovery? If not you must start over.
