    I think this is the only way to root 2.1 without flashing SPR 1st

    Root Motorola DROID on Android 2.1 Platform Easily | Gadgets DNA

    Looks pretty straight forward.

    Thought I remember seeing a SPR update.zip somewhere, will look around and report back.

    What ver. of windows?

    You should be able to get RSD to work.

    Try again and follow these instructions EXACTLY:

    I'd say download everything again from here and start over

    SBF to root and to unroot

    Since you can't use RSD The easiest thing to do is once you get rooted you download free version of Rom Manager from the market, open it and scroll to the bottom and "Flash clockwork mod", when it's done "Flash alt recovery" and then you will have SPR on your phone and can install Custom Roms.

    There is a good step by step instructions with links to the appropriate files needed to root in my signature. Just an FYI, you do not have to go back to 2.0.1 to root. You can gain root access from 2.1.
