Trying to restore my Droid
I used the link below to attempt to root my droid (newb on it totally). It seemed easy enough.
(apparently I can not post a link until I get to ten. I will fix that)
However, when It got to the part about mounting the sd card, I am stuck.
I assume, although it does not say, that you have to reactivate the phone. This is where I get stuck. I can not activate, I have tried 15 times or so, and there is no "pulldown" menu as the video says.
Id be happy just to get it back to stock and leave it at this point.
Any tips, or am I totally bricked?

I eventually did get it all finished, but with the new 2.1 installed I can not activate. I have been trying to do so since last night. Any tips?
Also, if I wanted to start over, how do I get back to stock? As I said, total noob when it comes to rooting, but I do know far more now than I did last night. lol That was a long few hours.
A little more info on things that I noticed. Still trying to activate, no luck.
I noticed in the phone info section of the phone, the phone number is no longer there and is replaced with 0000004795.
Is that normal until an activation? Might this be something i can fix through my online verizon account?

I pretty much rushed into this with little knowledge. Just enough to be dangerous to my phone. Going through the process I picked up the knowledge that I need to properly do the root. Of course I am still by any definition, a noob at it.
My advice to anyone that is new to this, even though it is a fairly easy process, be sure that you know what you are doing. Take your time, and do your research. It will save you alot of headache later lol
