    Well i have done a lot of research on the ever so wonderful World Wide Web on rooting. I finally decided to go for it, and it might have still been to early. I am having some major ISSUES, maybe I'm just over-reacting. not sure yet. Everyone seems friendly, anyone willing to help? any help will be greatly appreciated!

    I am not having any luck booting past the M. I can get to Bootloader, as well as Recovery. I rooted 2 days ago using Soup or Root V2.06. I was trying to load my first rom. Complete failure. lol. I was running Froyo Frg22d. Droid 1. The update is going onto the sd as update.zip.zip.

    Thanks for the help tp76

    That's odd. Can you rename it at that point?

    The only place i can access the file is via sd adapter for computer. I try installing from SD in clockworkmod recovery and it says file not found.

    U should access the update.zip.zip file from your computer and rename to update.zip (not .zip.zip) and try again...

    That's probably because its update.zip.zip. I dl'd all of my ROMs from the phone itself and use Androzip to move and rename it. I also us SPRecovery to install instead of CW.

    Try using Androzip to move and rename the update file like DroidDoes does.
