    Using this guide that Moto made: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/rescue-squad-guides/74028-root-droid-1-regardless-os-version.html

    Anyway, when I get to the point where this should happen:[​IMG]

    Instead of installing, it says:

    E:Cant mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1
    (No such file or directory)
    E:Cant mount SDCARD:update.zip
    Installation aborted.




    I left some out, but that's mostly what it says. What am I doing wrong? I put the update.zip into the SD card and named it update. Should I be putting it into a certain folder?

    That's what I had trouble with, and I'm probably going to look like the biggest idiot.. but where's the root located? Haha.

    That means it does not go in any folders.

    That's what I did. I didn't put it in any folders, just put the zip file on it as "update.zip"

    if yyou already flashed the sbf then you should have sprecovery, and if you have that you can install a 2.2 based rom or the rooted 2.2 stock image
