    Hey guys, I'm following these steps:
    from: How to Root Your Motorola Droid Running 2.1


    and I'm stuck at step 5. What exactly is "reboot to STOCK recovery?" I think that means restore to factory settings? I have no idea... So, if someone could tell me what I have to do to "reboot to STOCK recovery" I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

    Oh, and also, in step 5, when it says copy the update.zip to your SDCard, does that mean extract the files within the .zip to the SDcard or just copy "update.zip" and place it on the root of the card?

    Please help, I am sorry for the double post but I must go soon and these are relatively simple questions. Again, I apologize for my impatience but I am short on time here.

    Please help.

    Great and welcome to the "Dark Side"! Glad you were successful. Let us know if you have additional questions

    What rom did you install?

    Actually, the goal for today was to just get my new DRoid rooted, heh. I didn't install a custom rom yet. I will do that first thing tomorrow.
