    Hello to all, I have a Droid 2 (a955) that's giving me the following message:

    Bootloader
    D2.35
    Err:A5,70,70,00,1F

    MEM_MAP Blank
    Service Req'd
    Battery OK
    OK to Program
    Transfer Mode:
    USB


    From all the reading and searching I'v done so far, I understand this means that the phone was attempted to be updated to the new .621 update... is there any fix for this as of now, I have tried a few different sbf's starting from the lowest to the highest one I have now (desperate hope lol):
    1FF-p2a_droid2_cdma_droid2-user-2.3.3-4.5.1_57_DR2-31-110719-release-keys-signed-Verizon-US.sbf

    Also Tried:
    VRZ_A955_2.3.20_1FF_01.sbf
    BL_D237_cdma_droid2_Consumer_replacer_HSPart.sbf
    BL_D235_cdma_droid2_Consumer_replacer_HSPart.sbf


    The 2nd line has changed from D2.37 to the current D2.35 after the last sbf attempt.

    Thanks in advance for any help

    where you by any chance rooted? romed? anything that is considered voiding your warranty?

    there are several ways you can go about recovering your device, i just want to ask that question before we resume

    As far as I know it wasn't & I have no concern for warranty

    Thanks for the help, this did not fix my issue though.

    ***UPDATE***

    I found another sbf online named:
    1FF-p2a_droid2_r2d2_cdma_droid2_r2d2-user-2.3.4-4.5.1_57_DR4-52-120118-release-keys-signed-Verizon-US.sbf

    and it did fix the phone! However lol its the stupid Star Wars edition software, so now the phone's splash screen and some icons are nerdy but at least the phone is working again.

    Thanks for the help, and hope this helps someone else if they run into this.

    im sorry bud, but the droid 2 isnt exactly my forte, even though it is the same thing as the dx basically, but i am glad you got a working phone again

    might be worth going back and trying some of those sbf files now

    sounds like a file didn't load properly

    That a copy of the D2 Gingerbread SBF file. I just used that to fix my bricked D2 and it's working great now:D
