    Great guide but I think I'm in a pickle...

    Once I do the last update.zip and reboot via the recovery menu my phone keeps, what I think, rebooting into the DROID and then DROID EYE logo constantly.

    It never comes back to a normal screen...

    It wasn't stated how it would go through the last part where it synch's up and could take 30-1 hour so I've gone the last 30 mins with this constant reboot on regular AC power.

    What to do? Should I reboot into SDRecovery mode and restore the backup I saved using the guide?

    Thanks!

    I've gone and pulled the battery and rebooted into SDRecovery and restored my prior full backup. Phone is back to the state it was in at this point and it's up and running...

    Not sure why this didn't work as all the directions were clear, concise and worked as they should (per the guide).

    I let it go an hour and half on AC and same cycle of logo's so I made the decision to pull it and flash back the backup.

    This was a non rooted phone prior so I'm not sure if this was the cause of the issue but from what I was reading from dmartins guide it flashes root w/ Froyo 2.2 so I don't think it had to be rooted prior. Maybe?

    Thanks!

    I'm also getting the FAIL message when I try to flash SPRecovery. One time it even said PASS instead of FAIL or COMPLETE. No idea what's going on. Need some help. I have official 2.1 manual update.

    Just read this on another thread:

    Going to try this again with maybe another update.zip...

    It's really weird as all steps work except the last reboot. 2.1 update1 is the listed version on this new Droid too.. Odd..

    Got it working :)

    I went and did a complete wipe of both cache and data (factory reset) a few times then restored the Froyo images here and update.zip and it's back and rebooted. Synch'ing up now and waiting to get WiFi up.

    Maybe I didn't fully understand the portion of the wipe cache since there is just a cache option instead of a data/cache which I finally ended up doing. Maybe to save headaches it could be done this way in the guide to thwart any issues?

    Thanks! :)

    No problem in that long list it's easy to overlook something.

    Well I went ahead an successfully flashed my phone and my wife's. My phone didn't sync the apps but my wife's did. Has any one had that problem where your apps weren't synced?
