Default skip activation for wifi only

I've got 2 droid x2s that got factory reset accidentally and I no longer have Verizon services. I want to activate it for just wifi use but haven't been able to find any guides on how to do that with Droid x 2. I've tried tapping the four corners that several other phone guides says works but it hasn't with the Droid x2. Anyone that knows how to skip activation you help would be greatly appreciated.

Googled it and found a few results:

From Droidxforums.com:
How to bypass activation on Droid X2
I don't know if anyone is aware of this but the previous method of touching the four corners to bypass activation does not work on the X2. However I figured out how to do it so I thought I would share.

Power on phone holding volume down, when you see fast boot keep taping volume down till you see "Boot Android {No BP}" and press volume up.

It will boot you into Google Setup....just click the green guy then select the "skip" option for the rest of the setup. When you get to the location service consent section with the 3 options just don't select any and you will boot to the regular homescreen with no service.

From there you can root your device or whatever without Google restoration getting in the way.
Tomsgt123 channel on Youtube has alot of other great DroidX2 videos. Basically on this one he physically demonstrates what is written above.

i have used the 4 corners skip, several times on my dx2
but lots of people have said it didn't work for them

also some have had trouble signing in to google after bypassing activation

I bypassed mine by just touching the little android guy before the pointing finger showed up, much easier.
