    I attempted to root with z4root on my droid x. I kept coming up with ! error when flashing. Gave up and tried to factory reset and format sd card. Something saved somewhere and im being brought to the black screen with green writing, rocker scrolls and camera selects. when I reboot it boots to where I am still rooted with z4root.............any help welcome....the more detail and step by step the better. Thanks

    when I get to step 11 for drivers is get this.... Select Device
    The foler you specified doesnt contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the folder contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with windows for x64-based systems....im learning and thanks

    This is for the .sbf? I'm looking at the document and step 11 seems to have to do with the recovery mode.

    I actually wrote a guide on sbfing. Check my signature for details. It's pretty concise and easy to follow.
