    I am getting sent a new Droid X tomorrow but of course I have to send my old one in. I am flipping between custom roms but also would like to know how to virginize it so everything looks stock.

    Just SBF it using the 2.2 SBF as long as that's the one that corresponds to what base ROM you're running.

    any reason why this has to be done before? just curious... I unfortunatly am in the same boat as the OP. I woke up this morning and the bottom half of my screen if flickering/blacked out. I called verizon this morning and they are overnighting me a new one which should be here tomorrow (go figure im going out of town tomorrow too!! I hope it gets here early/before I have to leave!) so today im flahing the sbf (just finished) and I was going to do a factory reset AFTER. just curious if it HAS to be done before for any particular reason

    No, it doesn't have to be done before. After is fine. The SBF simply wipes the system partition so you just have to factory reset at some point either before or after to delete user data.

    Sometimes it's easier before because, if you have user data or cache that somehow prevents the phone from booting or throws it into a boot loop, you don't have to coordinate the battery pull/holding home to boot into recovery. That's the only good reason to do it before, though.

    What about unrooting or will the sbf take care of that as well?
