    Stealth_tC, are you trying to root your phone? Because the steps you quoted here are for unrooting the phone, although for some reason christm shows a picture of one of the custom recovery systems (SPRecovery) in the example instead of the stock recovery system which is what you have. So, if your goal was to unroot your phone, then you have done so.

    If you wish to root it, and only have a mac, then I have a guide that will probably work for you at my site here:

    Root the A855 without RSD Lite + make it ROM ready

    which involves using ADB, so you will have to do some of your own homework as far as how to setup and use adb on a mac. I know it can be done, I just don't know how, yet.

    good luck

    Actually yes, sorta...I downloaded easy root from unstableapps.com, and they say for it to work on Droid 1, that I have to flash back to FRG01B 2.2 and THAT is what im trying to do. If that doesn't make sence.....heres what im talking about.....Droid and Droid X 2.2, how to get your root on. | Unstable Apps

    DUDE!

    Wait! If you're trying to root, don't flash back. If it's a D1 just use RSD Lite or ADB to root it (there's a link to the RSD Lite/SPRecovery method in my signature). If it's an X just use the link for that in my signature.

    Easy root will NOT work once you have FRG22D on your phone. And there is no real reason to need to 'turn it on and off' as root by itself really doesn't do anything to your phone that affects the performance in any way shape or form. It is what you do with that new found power over your phone that affects it's performance.

    Obtaining root by itself is just like my "Two things you really should do" guide, where I instruct one to enable "unknown sources" and USB debugging. It does nothing at all to the performance of your phone.

    good luck
