    Actually it's only a custom recovery that will block an OTA for the Droid 1.

    @Karem, very good job! Same way I approach a new thing, read the thread for the issues and solutions.

    good luck

    The only thing following this guide will do is root or fail to root your phone. It won't mess anything up -- we've verified it. :)

    However, if you wish to PM a member of the Rescue Squad (we wear green tights and have lightbulbs screwed into our heads), I'm sure one of us would be willing to help you out.:icon_ banana:

    Are you waiting for the rage file to finish it's thing first? Usually you should see a message about a bunch of children . . .

    Well, I did the first four steps. Turned out it wouldn't work since I didn't have USB debugging on. So fixed that option. Went back to the Terminal and attempted to redo the commands, now get the result "Cannot fork".

    Any ideas? Is there someway to completely start over?

    So is the following poster correct?

    Cause I got the line saying "forked 3803 childs." does that mean I can now move on to the next steps?

    Move on to the next steps. The childs line is, I'm told, what you're looking for. :)

    Okay, I did the rest including typing the "exit" line. But I still have to manually exit the program using the home button right?

    Yeah. Exit twice just ends the terminal session -- you still have to quit the program. :)

    I don't know if a reboot command would be a bad idea or not -- it would force the phone to reboot. But just exit with the button recommended. Don't want to mess something up at this stage.
