    I recently attempted to root my D1 using MC1's write up (http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-labs/74028-root-droid-1-regardless-os-version.html) and thought I was all good then ..I have a dead battery for now so I think that's why am experiencing a constant reboot. I also have an error message that reads
    " Sorry!
    Process system is not responding" then the option of force close or wait.

    I think it may be the dead battery issue (which I am currently charging) that may be causing the contant reboot. Once I have a full battery, I hope the rebooting stops. If not, I will need your experties. So far I think I may be good cuz I did see the "SuperPermissions" Icon on the main screen. ..I placed a charged battery in the phone and now once it boots up, I get a partial notificationstating "Android system then device shuts down..HELP PLEASE:icon_eek::icon_eek::icon_eek::icon_eek::icon_eek:

    If your phone has a good charge and is still acting up, try a factory reset. That will not get rid of your root.

    I think I did that and same result but I'll try it again. I only have the option of Sp recovery it seems to do a factory reset. I have a 100% charged battery and when phone first boots up, battery shows up as red then it shuts down after a few seconds. I went into SpR again again and wiped factory 3 times and cahe 3 times and Still get the same issue. I think somewhere in the rooting, something went wrong. Whenever phone boots up, the red Led light remains on w/the android system reading and phone powers down. Does SD card have to be in phone in order for a complete reboot to occur? Am glad this was a replacement droid that I was going to activate due to a couple of blemishes on my main Droid. It originally had 2.2 OS on it as well so I do not know if that makes a difference as well:icon_eek::icon_eek:

    the same thing happened to me. i followed the instructions to root my droid regardless of os, and it seemed to go well until i booted it up completely and the red droid eye came on then it told me i have a low battery. boot loader wont work. and now it wont even turn on. only the little light at the charging port works.

    You have a Droid and you can not boot into recovery nor can you power on, correct?

    The first thing you need to do is get the phone to power on. Does it charge for you?

    all that indicates its charging would be the light in the charging port. but the light is on. so i think its charging.
