    Lost root and tried to reroot. Followed the droid life video on how to go from 2.1 and install sprecovery. Got all the way to the end and when Im trying to install a custom rom to give me root it aborts. It says cant open sdcard/update.zip (no such file or directory) Also when I try Choose Rom from SD card it says "No tar archives found." Can someone please help me? This is for a Droid 1
