    A challenge

    Hi all.

    Here's my unit info:
    Model number: MZ604
    Android Version: 3.0.1
    Kernel Version: 2.6.336.3
    a22916@il93lnxdroid47 #1
    Build number: H.6.2-21-demo.1301358186

    The unit is a demo. I only paid 5 bucks for it, 12 bucks for the charger. If can't upgrade it, it's no great loss. There is an available software upgrade to Honeycomb 3.1 64.0.20.en.CA

    I've tried downloading it. But it won't install. There is the Android image onscreen with a yellow triangle and an exclamation point. From that point, I have to reboot using the power button/up volume method. When it reboots, the demo loop comes on and a message that the upgrade failed.

    My next step was to go to the Motorola site. The support person was very nice and gave me some advice. The factory reset failed to remove the demo. The next step was to try the factory reset using the external keys. There, I found an interesting issue. Instead of the expected "RSD, Fastboot, Android Recovery" options, I got RSD, Fastboot and NvFlash. At this point, Motorola support seems to have no clue.

    I talked to some geek friends of mine. One suggested I root it. The process, to be really honest, looks confusing. I've done some research on it and I have more questions than answers. I'm hoping someone with the patience of a saint can give me guidance. Also, the unit will not read a Lexar 16 GB SDHC card. I formatted it to Windows FAT 32 and inserted it by shutting the unit off and putting the card in. It doesn't show up in "Settings/Storage" It works in my camera so the card is good.

    Ok, my novel is finished. I ask for your help and apologize in advance for the mistakes I'll make in this endeavor
