    From what I've seen that error is thrown when the update.zip you're using to root isn't valid. Did it successfully install when you did the install update.zip to root the phone?

    If he just followed those directions, no, it just gets you as far as installing update.zip to root the phone.

    No offense but stepping through it manually at least gives you an idea of what you're doing to your phone, not gonna learn anything just running an app...

    Sounds like you did loose it let's hope you still have root if so just look at the faq to install the recovery image again

    Similar thing is happening to me.. All I get is an exclamation point in a triangle with a little phone laying beneath it. I'm not sure what happened really. I'm going uninstall and reinstall DMUpdater and see if that fixes it.

    Well it seems i didn't install the ROM that comes with DM updater. After installing the DroidMod 1.0 ROM, it installs the new recovery console which disappeared and it gives you all the 2.1 stuff, live wallpapers,etc. Pretty cool.
