    I have done this and it works! Per what they said though everything works but your motoblur account you have to create a new one as it's on a different server. So if you don't have your contacts synced elsewhere you will loose them.

    Have you looked at the FAQ on the youtube video?

    Hope this helps... I had no issues on Win XP...

    YouTube - How To Get MotoBlur 2.1 On An Unrooted Motorola Cliq!


    Q: Help! My computer doesn't recognize my phone!
    A1: If you're running windows vista or XP try running it as administrator in Windows XP compatibility mode
    A2: Unplug your phone. Turn it off. Turn it back on by holding the Menu and Power buttons at the same time until you see the blue screen. Then plug it in and try again.

    Q: Can I do this if I'm rooted?
    A: NO, this is for unrooted phones only!

    Q: Will this root my phone?
    A: No!

    Q: I only have a mac, how can I do this?
    A: You will need to use bootcamp to set up a Windows partition on your mac

    Q: Does this include live wallpapers?
    A: No, stock blur will never include live wallpapers unless it is a rooted build

    Q: I received an over the air update, should I install it?
    A: I wouldn't recommend installing it unless you know what it does, but thats up to you

    Q: I'm running 2.1 now, but I want to go back to 1.5, HELP!
    A: Do the same as in the video, but instead of flashing the 2.1 sbf, flash this file ModMyMobile Forums - Downloads - 1.4.8 - T-Mobile US

    Q: I flashed 2.1 and everything is great, but I can't mount my sdcard?!
    A: Unplug your phone, reboot it, plug it back in and you should be able to mount it (Thanks rccb3!)

    Q: If I upgrade to this now will I be able to get the official 2.1 update?
    A: You will be able to get it, but you might have to downgrade to 1.4.8 before updating.

    Q: RSD Lite can't find the sbf file, what am I doing wrong?
    A: Make sure you unzipped it from the zip file

    Don't see your problem here? Post a comment and I will reply!

    I thought the same thing... I guess this version doesnt have it... Who knows if it will come out at all for Cliq... The MyTouch Slide does it...

    My wife wont know the difference... ;)

    5) select use existing account

    6) put in all your original information

    I put it on my CLIQ yesterday. It's absolutely awesome. I'm suggesting everyone download it / install it. When T-mobile releases their version (completed) we can alway's re-flash back to Blur 1.4.8 and OTA update.

    **Note**- After this 2.1 flash, I called Motorola, just to mess with them. The guy couldn't figure out how my Firmware version was 2.1-update1. I finally told him, and he wanted the link to the download so bad, I was almost anticipating on him offering some money.

    He stated Motorola is going to push out the update to the carrier's by the end of Q3. I asked what happened to their Q2 release, he had no comments.

    Been running 2.1 on my cliq for months and have to agree that it is awsome ....just wish there was a way to get the 3d wallpaper...the apps are abailable but seems as if there is no drivers for advanced 3d programing. also would like to see an app for android 2.1 to be able to ptt and connect with nextel phones.

    As long as you have the latest drivers, disable UAC in Vista/7. Reenable when complete. Will make it much easier!
