    I just got my replacement Droid, and rooted it via sbf. My Original Droid I rooted with adb. I am having issues with code 31 every time I try to back up via nandroid, and I have issues installing update.zip's.
    Now, on my last phone, I had SPRecovery v0.99.2 (?) I never updated to the latest version.
    On the replacement, I have SPRecovery v0.99.3b

    I have reformated the sd card (both in the phone, and the computer)
    The only work around I have found, is open terminal emulator:
    su
    sync
    reboot
    (hold X while booting to go to recovery)
    Then I can back up with nandriod every time.

    Update.zip issue:
    When trying to apply an update.zip if I dont sync and reboot, I get the following error:
    E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 (or /dev/block/mmcblk0)
    (No such file or directory)
    E:Can't mount SDCARD:update.zip


    Any thoughts? I have made it work via sync-ing in TE, but its a PITA to do it that way.

    Every error 31 I have seen indicates an issue with the SD card. Since you reformatted the card I have no suggestions.

    Looks like the 2.1 rooted sbf was giving me problems. I flashed the SPRecovery only sbf, and the Error #31's seem to be taken care of.

    Bob,

    When you say 'sp recovery only sbf' file, which file are you talking about? I'm a Cellular South Milestone (I.el. A854) user and I'm having android 31 issues myself. Using stock 8gb mSD card at came with the phone. Reformatted the card in Android, still having the 31 error. running stock 2.1 that is rooted. My SPRecovery is the 99.3b you said you had problems with. i used the method from MotoDroid1 here to root the phone. is there a link here for the file you're talking about?

    thanks in advance,
    DrHogie
