Help restoring droid 2 to factory default

    I am trying to get my phone back to factory default so i can update to GB (and from there to a ROM) but cannot seem to find the appropriate SBF to do so. I was running an old version of Liberty and tried to use Clockwork to reset to a factory default via data wipe, but when I did that I still see the liberty boot screen every time it loads and the OTA update fails to install every time. Right now (after using restore) my phone is using Version.2.2.20.A955.verizon.en.US.

    Thank you very much in advance for any help.

    When I reset my phone, I did the following:

    1) Installed RSD Lite on my PC, then used that to flash my phone back to VZR_A955_2.3.20_1FF_01.sfb

    2) Booted the phone up, then went to Settings -> About Phone -> System Updates and the GB update was there waiting.

    Step 1 above got the phone back to the way it was the day I bought it back in Nov 2010 (with Froyo) and the GB was the update we got some months later.
