    I just SBF'ED my DX!!!!!! Wow talk about nerves getting shot! lol but it worked but at first I looked at the notification bar and a light blue triangle was the and then I looked at my phone and the info didn't have my number on it. It was like 000-0000-01127 or something like that I started to panic and thought I need to call *228 and let it set up my data and wallah! It's all good! I would like to thank everybody that helped, but like to really thank Steven58 for taking time to answer all my questions, Thank you! Now since I know how to SBF, time to get dirty with some roms and themes!

    I'm glad you got through it man! Definitely go check out the ROMs and get your device flying. And never hesitate to ask for help.

    Awesome! Any chance there is a step by step article on here on how to perform the SBF for 2.2? Every time I search it takes me to how to download the gift_2 file. I have the file and RSDlite (installed on PC and phone recognized)....I'm just a bit clueless where to go next :)

    w00t! down and dirty time! :) :) You're a pro, now! :)

    sure! from http://androidforums.com/droid-x-al...ing-custom-rom-theme-how-unbrick-droid-x.html

    *my note: make sure you install moto dx drivers on your PC: http://www.motorola.com/consumers/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=bda09ec8009a0210VgnVCM1000008806b00aRCRD

    C. UnBRICKING INSTRUCTIONS:
    HELP ME. Ima noob! I BRICKED MY PHONE!

    1. go to Home and DL the leaked full OTA FROYO 2.2 .SBF file.
    2. Download and install RSDLite v4.8 (it should be on Home if not, go Google it.)
    3. If your phone is stuck on the load screen, pull the battery, wait a minute, push the battery back in and restart with the phone’s Boot Loader Mode (do this by pressing the red camera button + volume down + power button  hold all of them in the order that I stated until your phone flashes briefly). Your phone should flash white and a Boot Loader menu will come up. Make sure there is at least 20 to 25 percent battery life remaining in order for the reformat of you phone to complete. If your phone dies in the middle of this process GOD HELP YOU.
    4. Run the RSDLite File and connect your Droid X to your computer via USB.
    5. Browse for the .SBF file you downloaded in step 1 and click “Start”, at which point the program should run and your phone will proceed to unbrick
    6. EASY RIGHT?
    7. Once unbricking you will have to go through reactivation of your phone. This is normal so just go through the steps you did when you first started.
    8. GUESS WHAT? You made a backup of your previous customizations REMEMBER? If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of re-downloading your entire life onto your phone again follow the “ROOTING” instructions in Part A and redownload Bootstrap and reboot into recovery mode to RESTORE the backup you made by following steps 2-11 in Part B….except you won’t be going to “install from sdcard” you will going to “Backup and Restore” and “Restore from sdcard”.

    Thats the right file, just unzip the contents and load the .sbf file into RSDLite.
