    I have 2.1. My droid was rooted with 2.1 & seemed ok. Then after a couple of months (just recently) my GPS was off. I was off as much as 2 to 3 blocks. Then I started sending repeat text messages that would not stop sending until I turned the droid off. Last evening I lost data connection/internet completely. My droid became just phone. I did a factory reset but it didn't restore my 3G/Internet connection. Now I got a new Droid (didn't erase the SD card) & I can't root. I do the standard running dmupdater but as I run the android recovery menu I get the following error E: can't open /cache/recovery/command. Can someone help me & give me an idea if I need to wipe the SD card or what? Thank-you.

    Can't Root Droid 2.1

    I signed in yesterday & put this same problem in the forums, but must be the wrong place. I had my old droid hacked with the 2.1 via dmupdater.
    My old droid started doing GPS addressing wrong, duplicate text messaging & wouldn't stop sending until I turned off phone & finall all 3G/Data stopped complete. Well yesteday I got a new droid & still have the old SD card. When I try to root I get the following error E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command & when I try to run apply sdcard:update.zip the droid the the Install from sdcard but I get the following error E:signature verification failed Installation aborted.

    Please help. Are there files I need to delete from the droid SD card?

    Thats because the new droid already is on the official 2.1. You need to use rsdlite to install 2.1 with sprecovery

    Please don't cross post. It's against Forum rules and causes confusion. Your thread in the hacking section was deleted per Rescue Squad request.
