    Hello I rooted my droid x and tried to install the most recent upgrade for it. It wouldnt install so i deleted the custom recovery and temporarily unrooted the phone. i tried again to install it now i have a boot loop. i have numerous questions. 1.) i can still access boot loader good? can i flash an sbf? 2.) anyone have the link for the 4.5.605 manual update? 3.) I have a download for 4.5.621 if installed will that fix boot loop? 4.) i read you can keep root through .621 update if you preserve root through voodoo root preserver? is it true? that was my plan. install .621 fix my root then proceed to delete bloatware. will that work? 5.) does temporary unroot go off after turning off thevphone or do i need to run voodoo again?

    Oh yeah I forgot I was on a forum where a million people can view a post but no one can answer it. How does anything get done around here?

    So your saying use a boot loader to flash an SBf? Will that even work? I also deleted my cwm recovery so I can't flash from that. A bootloader should be fine right?

    You'll have to be connected to a pc. This isn't something that can be done on the phone itself. Follow the link Colchiro posted. You'll need the sbf file, Motorola Droid X drivers and RSDLite to flash the sbf file. That stuff is all available in that link. From personal experience, it actually takes longer to read the directions than it does to sbf.
