    when I am in bootlader mode my device is not recognized nor can it be updated. I have tried a fix via my computer, manual update. It shows as a flash device but it cannot be updated.

    whats up w/ that??? how can I fix this.
    Win7

    I am trying to get my DX to 2.3.340

    it is at 2.3.320 right now.

    It was probably rooted, then I received it (via wiped clean) trying to get it up to speed w Froyo to get to GB. I'm good w rsd lite 4.9 and 2.3.340 zip.

    The drivers on the computer is NOT installing the DX in bootloader.

    NOW: the DX is up-to-date via normal running to download stuff, all that jazz.

    When in bootloader NOTTA,the drivers are not doing anything, therefore I CANNOT bring up my device in RSD so I can get 340 installed.
    I'm at a loss for what to do??!!

    seems like i couldnt even flash stuff if I was to root.

    (I need to go to bed) wifee calling from upstairs....

    I'm sure some are sayn cause u recognize me...."SHAT....bleedGreen AGAIN"

    Did you update your Motorola USB drivers?
    USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA

    First: Be sure you uninstall your current Motorola drivers from the Device Manager. Note: It's under DVD/CD-ROM drives while your phone is attached to the computer.

    I did this before following the SBF instructions here:
    Complete Droid X .sbf Flashing Guide

    SBF to 2.3.340 went fine. I did have a reboot loop, but I did a factory reset as shown in the FAQ of the same Guild and the issue was fixed.

    haha Doing it in windows isn't hard per say but some people just have troubles on the first time and this is just soo easy as long as you have a blank CD around.

    Good to hear! If battery life sucks the first day or so, let the phone discharge all the way then charge to full. I only got 12 to 15 hours the first day after GB, but after I performed the above I had 6 hours at 100% this morning and I'm at 80% after 12 hours (light use, standby mostly...working). Still great standby for a smartphone.

    Moved this to root section. :D

    It takes days of use before an updated phone settles down. If after that time your battery still leaves a lot to be desired, you need to go into your battery use (settings... battery and data... battery usage) and see what's using it. Some people have done a factory reset after updating to GB and fixed their battery issues. Of course that means having to setup your phone again.
