    I know this has been brought up a few times in the other post, so I'll bring it up here. I have performed this process many times. I find that I may have to run it more than once in order for RSDlite to show a completion. I have run it and gotten only to 99%, the phone then reboots and appears to be ok, but RSDlite says failed. I rerun the whole process until I get to 100% and RSDlite shows completion. Hope this helps some other noob's!!

    Those that get to 99% but it reboots and is 2.0.1 there is no reason to do it again... it is already done.

    I had this same issue myself, got to 99% sat there for a bit then said it failed. I hit the "show device" button and it rebooted to 2.0.1 goodness. I understand that it shouldn't say failed if in fact it didn't, but this program has shown itself to be a bit finicky.

    It is amazing that this process even works most of the time! Last time a ran it, 10 mins ago, it got to 99% said failed and then said to manually reboot the phone. Time before it got to 99% said failed and a whole bunch of other crap, then rebooted the phone. But it works!!??!! I guess who cares??!?!

I'm sry I just don't want to brick someones phone while trying this lol.

    Press the D pad up as in up towards the screen as if you were using the slide open keyboard. Press the power button while holding the d pad until the screen kicks on

    Just to clarify because I'm kinda slow. This process completely reset the phone right? Apps are gone, contacts are gone, calendar, everything.

    Of course apps can be reinstalled, contacts imported from the SD card (it doesn't wipe the card right?), the calendar re-synced, etc.

    The sdcard does not get wiped

    I'm not sure on this one ...I have heard it might...you could just flash the recovery sbf and then root ...is that what you are trying to accomplish?

    It didn't, thanks.

    This is what I ended up doing, I couldn't get the other method of flashing back to 2.0.1 to work. Flashing the sbf recovery was a piece of cake and worked flawlessly.

    I'm stuck at the part where you're supposed to flash the OS onto the phone with RSD - when I click start, nothing happens. The phone is at the bootloader screen and I've installed the required USB driver for Win7 x64. I've followed the instructions to the letter up until this point so now I'm lost. Help please?

    You'll get the ota notification. If you are rooted, accept it. SPRecovery will block the install, so no worries!

    Like many others, the software indicated a failure. After it restarted though, the Droid seemed fine on 2.0. Should I be worried on what kernel I'm on?

    How can I tell if I'm still rooted?
