    Ok I successfully rooted my droid awhile back and it worked perfectly. I was using simply stunning 4.6 as my rom. I wanted to change it, so I used rom manager to download and install the stock froyo rom. However after I did that my phone wont grant superuser permissions. It says its rooted and I have the superuser ninja app in my dock. I tried to install a new rom using the update.zip method but it aborts the installation. Any ideas on whats going on and how to fix it??

    heres my system info:

    Model number: Droid

    Android Version: 2.2

    Baseband Version: C_01.3E.03P

    Kernel Version: 2.6.32.9-g874c292
    android-build@apa26#1

    Build Number: FRG22D

    Click the super user ninja, or go into terminal emulator and type su. Let me know what you get.

    I used the update.zip method using sprecovery. I had to install drivers and everything. I was following a tutorial so Im not sure exactly what happened. My superuser ninja app is just a blank screen when I click on it and terminal emulator force closes everytime I try to open it

    ok so I started following his tutorial and I got to the part where I flash the sbf file using rsd lite. But my phone wont show up in rsd lite even when i change the device id settings to first come first serve
