Default Clearing a broken Droid X

Ok, so my wife dropped her Droid X a month ago and shattered the screen to the point of no return (can't make out anything on the screen and it's dangerous to touch - ouch!). Is there a way I can manually wipe the system clean in order to sell it (via Macbook preferably)?

It's not rooted, but, I could probably handle that if it can be done via terminal/manual push via aforementioned Macbook.

Any way to do it would be great since it's just taking up counter space and I'd like to make some lunch money for it.

SBF?

You'll need RSD Lite and the Froyo sbf.

Boot your phone into bootloader
With your phone Powered OFF do the following:
HOLD the Volume Down Button + Camera Button + Power Button
You should see a small screen flash - once you do release all of the buttons

Run RSD and connect your phone to your PC
You should now see your phone in RSD Lite.
You may need to click show devices in RSD Lite.

Click the start button and allow your phone to flash the sbf
Wait for the process to complete and then unplug your phone.


edit: Aaahhh - colchiro you beat me to it!

Thanks! I knew I couldn't be the first one to have this happen. Just couldn't find it in the forum.
