    Hold down the home button and turn the phone on. Clear data.

    Also, SBF doesn't change the Liberty logo.

    After a SBF, or installing a theme or rom, the first boot often takes longer so wait about 5 minutes before you give up on it.

    Would you plesae share the instructions you used to do this SBF? There's so many sets of instructions I'd like to see some from someone that's recently done it successfully. Thanks

    Get the SBF, Get RSD Lite 4.9, get moto drivers.

    Install the drivers.
    Launch RSD

    Power down. Power up with Volume Down / Camera and power button held.

    You will be at boot loader.
    Connect phone to the computer.
    Browse for the SBF file.
    Make sure your device is listed in RSD.

    Click start. (Wait a long time. Only unplugged if it says failed. Sometimes it takes 20 minutes or more)

    To expand on this (like we need another guide... but all these links are active as of right now)

    Drivers from here Motorola Verizon Droid X USB Drivers & PC Charging Drivers Download | Verizon Cell Phones | Blog about Verizon Phones
    Right click on them install as Administrator

    Download SBF from http://bit.ly/hfp9iY


    RSD Lite from Download RSD Lite 4.9.rar from uploading.com - Filestube.com - download everything

    Install RSD Lite as Administator

    Turn off phone, Take out battery.

    (Right click RSD Lite, run as administrator)

    Put Battery In
    Press and hold the Volume Down button and the Camera button, and press then Power button until the screen lights up.

    Should say Bootloader 30.04 or something

    Hook up USB Cable. Wait for windows to find your phone and install drivers (you will here sounds sounds as it installs everything)

    You should see the phone at the bottom of RSD Lite. If not click show device. Browse for the SBF file. Click start.

    I found it seems to work better if you don't move the sbf window or do anything else on the PC. It may take a long time. It may stick at RAM Bootloader 97% or something for a long time. Leave it be, it will either say phone rebooting or failed.... eventually.

    Once it boots it may bootloop at the Red Droid Eye. Go into factory recovery and factory reset. Accessed as below



    1. Turn your phone off.
    2. Hold down “Home” and press the “Power” button there at the top. Hold them until the Motorola logo appears
    3. Release the “Power” button, but continue to hold the “Home” button until you see an exclamation mark (!)
    4. Release the “Home” button and press the “Search” key once (and only once!)


    Use volume keys and camera button to move around to reset (note that camera button is super sensitive and can double click if you aren't careful)
