    I keep trying to SBF, but it is bombing out on me at 99% complete. I am using RSD Lite version 4.9. I did a factory reset, and I'm using this SBF:

    New Full SBF for Droid X - 2.3.340

    Has anyone else had issues trying this?

    As of now I have a brick!

    Make sure you follow the instructions carefully and don't miss any steps ;)

    I followed all the steps to install from the Linux cd, and the install completed. I then went in and did the factory wipe of data and cache, and it booted right back into the bootloader.

    There were two different versions of the bootable cd software, So I tried both of them and had the same result.

    I am on bootloader 30.04.... Do I need to do something different to make that work?

    Sounds like he's using the linux cd since he said he tried two different versions of the cd.

    After you wiped data/factory reset and wiped cache you rebooted and it went straight to the bootloader?

    I have tried both RSD lite and the CD's. IT seems odd, because I have flashed this phone about 20 different times in the past with no issues. Do you know where I can find the correct SBF to flash back using RSD? Maybe I was using an SBF that was too old.

    That's exactly what is happening. Seems very odd to me. I don't want to keep trying it over and over at this point, because I'm worried about the battery draining too low to even do an SBF.

    I did notice one thing that was odd when doing the flashing with the CD's... In the instructions where it is telling you to do the factory reset, it says to hit OK by pressing the camera button. The camera button did not do anything on my phone. I tapped the power button and it kicked off the data/cache wipe. I had a message pop saying that it was successful, though.... just seems kind of strange to me.

    have you tried rsd lite?

    download rsd lite 4.9 its easy if you need help with it let us know
    and the linux cd is easy
    just put your phone in bootloader, cutting it off hold camera button, vol down, and power button

    then cut your pc off, boot to the usb device
    i think its the second option that you see on the usb defice, cause default will not put you into the sbf state

    and hit 1 to proceed and hit enter, and just wait for the phone to reboot itself
    and when it does, pull the battery

    put it back in

    hold home+power
    once the phone turns on, release power
    once you see the exclamation point
    hit the search button
    vol rocker down to wipe data
    and wipe it by hitting the camera button, be careful cause you can barely tap the camera button and it accesses that menu,
    once you wipe data and cache, just reboot and your set

    That's literally exactly what I did, it it continues to reboot into the bootleader after I do the data wipe.

    I just tried redownloading the SBF, and here is what happened in RSD Lite 4.9 using Android 2.2.1 System Version 2.3.340 Full (VRZ_MB810_2.3.34_1FF_01):


    Status - Interface BP: Loading RAM Downloaded for Bootloader.
    Progress - Executed 97%
    Result - In process...

    It hangs here for several minutes and then it changes to this:

    Status - Failed flashing process. Interface: BP Error sending RAM download for bootloader Device API Error 0x003003f Address: 0x18F000 Command ADDR (oxE023203F; phone connected
    Progress -
    Result - FAIL

    I know that I have all of the USB drivers properly installed, because I have used RSD Lite 4.9 20 times in the past and I have never had an issue.

    I tried both RSD Lite and the linux CD. The Linux CD made it the whole way through the process, and it still booted back to the bootloader.

    My USB drivers are all up to date, too.

    I have tried 8 different SBF's that I found on Androidforums. Do you have a link to one that worked for you that I could try?

    Hmmm i dont know why you keep getting that, here is a link to another source for the sbf.

    Also on this site is the links to previous rsd lite, perhaps try 4.8 if this next attempt still doesnt work.

    his phone may be corrupt or something, but he should be able to get back to being able to use his phone

    after the whole rsd light process when you see that moto m pull the battery out
    and put it back in
    hold home+power then when you see the moto m release power, but continue to hold home and wait for the exclamation point


    the fact that it keeps booting to the bootloader is something strange. that battery needs to charge, or else he is going to be in a world of hurt
