    I installed the original Froyo leak (2.3.9) way back when it came out, and haven't done any upgrading since.

    I just tried flashing SBF to get back on the OTA upgrade path, and the SBF failed so now I'm stuck. I followed the step by step instructions provided by RoOoLeR here:

    http://androidforums.com/droid-x-al...oot-backup-rom-sbf-overclock.html#post1926055

    I'm wondering if maybe I need a different SBF file than he had linked - can anyone tell me what SBF file I should be using???

    Additional info - My Bootloader version is 30.01

    My phone is basically useless right now so I'd like to get it at least usable as soon as possible!

    Is it just rebooting continuously? If so try to do a factory data reset.

    Nope, RSD Lite says Failed and the phone just stays on the screen that says "SW Update In progress..."

    I did a battery pull and tried it again and failed. I'm currently trying a different SBF file with fingers crossed....

    Like the person above me said... Pull the battery, put it back in, hold down the Home button and the Power button until you see the robot, then hit the Search button. Then hit Factory Reset.

    The status section of RSD says the following:

    "Failed flashing process. Interface BP: Error flashing subscriber unit. Device API Error: 0xE0030009 Address: 0xFC000 Command: ADDR (0xE0231009); phone connected."

    Phone says:

    No problem. Don't worry. You are on an old bootloader. 30.01. We're up to 30.04. Please sbf to the most current android 2.2 before you try to update to the 2.2.1.

    Please tell me what sbf version you are trying to flash. That's most likely the issue. It's simple.

    I've tried the one linked in RoOoLeR's guide (VRZ_MB810_2.3.15_1FF_01.sbf) and VRZ_MB810_1.13.6.2_1FF_01.sbf so far.

    I would, but the OP has to do it. I PM'd Rooler. Perhaps a mod can, though. Can you PM a mod and ask them to fix it? I am only an organizer, I'm not allowed to edit.

    Steven,

    I downloaded thegift.zip from your link and the zip file didn't extract a sbf file in it. Unlike the other sbf zips I've seen it had folders like patch, preinstall, recovery, system... in it. I searched and didn't see a sbf file in any of the folders.

    Droid X Full 2.2 SBF

    My B. Wrong file.. download from a link on this page. Sorry. I'm downloading it now to make sure. You see, that's an old droid x build and it's been a long time since I used it. Once you sbf to this, let me know as you need to be upgraded to 2.2.1 asap., but you need this sbf first as there is no direct route from where you are now to where you should be.
