    After rooting Droid the long way, I downloaded DroidMod update and everthing went as expected (i guess). Followed the steps, answered the questions, checked the boxes etc and phone rebooted. Loads Droidmod screen and then just goes black - shuts off, I guess. Tried to reboot into recovery and load backup but same result. WTF?

    was able to finally get system back to defaults and now am on 2.01 instead of 2.2 like I went back a month in time. When I try to update to 2.2 it tells me my phone is updated.

    It wouldn't let me do a Nan backup, just keep shutting down. If I removed battery it would boot up and then shut down again. Very confusing to say the least.

    So are you saying you are at stock or do you still have SU?

    No SU. I'm back to where the Droid had the curved swipe button on the start up screen, like when I bought the phone. Lost most apps, but not a problem.

    Okay, again for now!

    So after unloading zip which got SU back tried advanced restore which did nothing. Tried the the basic restore and phone restored to 2.2 rooted.

    Well, this is about as much excitement as I can take for the day. I'm leaving things well enough alone for now.

    Thanks again for all the help.
