You do not have to go back to froyo. As a matter of speaking, it will not work if you go all the way back to froyo because you still need a gb kernel.

Never mind. I'm wrong for not reading. I didn't realize that you were on stock gb. With stock gb, yes you need to go back.

Once you are on rooted GB, you can use the bootstrap recovery to flash any of the custom roms available for GB without going back to froyo every time. The real chore is getting rooted.

Okay, so here is basically what you need to do.
1. sbf back to froyo
2. Go find the link to p3droid's pre-rooted gb update.
3. Install bootstrap for your phone.
4. Find your rom that's right for you.
5. Use bootstrap.
6. ???
7. Profit!

Hope this helps

Sent with pre-rooted gb, and swype 3.0 both of which are awesome and sexy.

What do you mean by bootstrap. When I first rooted I had an app that let me boot into recovery. Is that bootstrap? If so once i updated to p3's gb I don't see that app anymore. This is probably a really lame issue, but some clarification would be greatly appreciated!

Once on p3's GB, reinstall the bootstrap recovery app, and use it to flash the eclipse rom.

What he said. reinstall the system recovery apk.


I don't know if you can do it on a mac, because I don't have one, but I'm almost positive that android sdk works on mac, so I want to day that you probably can. In addition, I wanted to post a link to a helpful thread on sbf to froyo: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1193818

Im running as owner. I think Ill try my other PC before I do anything else.

Nvmd. I made a rookie mistake. I thought that the driver had installed but instead it installed both the 32 and 64 bit which was screwing me up...Got it! Thanks K33pw1shen and Tim. Now, my next question. I know v2 of eclipse is coming out anytime now, should I wait til v2 or is it easy to dwnld v1 and upgrade to v2?

Its actually v0.2 its still very early build, though its by a good dev you may still have issues, recommend waiting for a while for later build unless you're an advanced user
