    im trying to update from 2.3.340 to gingerbread. Im following the three part installation here. originally I was getting an error saying the second part was bad, so I redownloaded the second part. Now I get an error saying it's "failed to assert" then some other stuff, and finished with (status 7). I sbf'd back to bone stock 2.1, and then update to 2.3.340, reroot,bootstrap (tried both droid x and droid 2 bootstrap) etc... try again and it gives the same error. Any idea as to what the issue is? Should i redownload all the files again?

    you are gonna have to sbf back to 2.2.1

    get the deoxed rom

    then get a gb rom

    most roms need the deoxed roms

    sorry for the delayed reply, just tried full SBF back to 2.2.1, and still getting the same error. redownloaded all the files again same error.

    is there another way to install gingerbread other than the 3 files?

    If you haven't tried it yet, try sbf'ing back to stock using rsdlite. It is really easy and the best way to do it IMO.

    Two bad sd cards in a row? It's possible but unlikely. There is a way to get GB without the 3 files but its the older GB (4.5.571). Here's a link to the file you will need.

    http://http://www.droid-life.com/2011/03/29/how-to-root-gingerbread-on-droid-x/

    Download the dxgbrooted.zip file. I myself had to go this route because I couldn't get the 3 files to work either. Once I got this one installed, sbf'ing back to stock worked and then I could flash the 3 files with no problem.

    You're not having a problem getting back to stock right? just can't flash the GB?

    ok i want to make sure of some things...

    1. you're SBFing using RSDlite?
    2. you're using the full .340 SBF file? where did you get it from?
    3. you're installing all three GB files in order, and without leaving bootstrap in between installations?
    4. you've checked the md5 checksum's of the files to make sure that the files themselves are not corrupted in anyway?

    Before you sbf back again, plug your charger in with your battery out and turn the phone on. That should get you into recovery so you can do the reset.

    EDIT: be sure to put your battery back in and unplug when you restart or it will just keep you in the recovery loop.

    ok...

    1. The latest RSDLite is version 4.9...i know for a fact 4.8 works fine...but you should get 4.9
    2. make sure you have the latest drivers from Motorola installed
    3. Get the FULL .340 SBF...that is part of the directions to installing GB...
    4. check all the md5's

    alright ill try the full 340 sbf.

    way to snip my quote :(

    any link to the full SBF?

    i've tried this one http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/droid-x-mods/6360-full-2-3-340-official-sbf.html but both links seem to be down (first says closed due to inactivity, second says it's forbidden and I don't have permissions to view)

    click the quote button on the post that i responded too you will notice that the vast majority of your post will not transfer...

    VBulletin forums do not transfer previous "quotes" to new quotes...meaning you cant have a quote in a quote...because most of your response was inside my quote the only thing that transfers to my response was the part about the MD5 checksums...in an attempt to speed up my response to you it was easier/less confusing to just get rid of the partial quote..

    for example...if you quote your post this is all you get...

    apparently my phone doesnt like the full .340 SBF, first few tries result in a critical erroe DEA1, also or just stops mid way and just shows connected (in RSD lite). gonna re download and hope for the best.

    third times a charm, with sbf .340
