    Got through everything like in video, only now stuck in Motorola boot screen. Won't boot into droidmod. Saw other similar comments on here but no reply. Please help

    • nate24

      so your phone is bricked? i want to do mine but am scared it will get locked up

      • sparks28

        No, it wasn't bricked. After trying several times, I was able to boot into safe mode and restore a back up that worked. After doing some more checking, I found out that the 2.1 update was available so I went that route for now.

      During the process it lets you choose options for the new music and gallery. Did you make sure to choose those?

    I followed all the steps I have 5 screens and when I look into my firmware its still 2.0.1 did I miss something????Please help and has anyone else had this problem?

    • kellex

      DroidMod1.0 is only 2.0.1. That is what you should see. 🙂

      • ldrbuck

        Great tutorial, I am a new be to rooting but have taken your advice and read up on all available material. I down loaded the updated. zip file and successfully rooted my phone. The only problem is that while attempting to flash recovery image for droid mod It does not flash and just keeps asking for permission.
