    Hey all, I'm in the process of preparing to go back to 2.1 (for the 2.2 OTA) and I was wondering if there's a method to flash the phone with my Macbook (with OS X).

    Does anyone know if this is possible?

    Yes. You can use RSD for this. You will need a program to run this before you start. Make sure you update all the files.

    Download the free trial of VMWare Fusion here:

    vmware fusion


    I find this to be the best way to flash SBF using a Mac.

    I am also assuming you know how to do the actual flash once you have this downloaded.
    If not, follow the instructions provided in this thread:

    Hoepfully this will help you.

    I'm kind of attached to OSX, but thanks for the advice.
