  3. Your number is probably floating around 4Chan right now.

    You will need to follow the root tutorial to get you back to 2.0.1. You don't need to update tot 2.1 after that. 2.0.1 is fine. The instructions are posted in the root tutorials. And again, stop once you have 2.0.1. You are done.

    Look in here at...


    *I just want everyone to know that I didn't write this guide, just the first paragraph. You can thank ikithme for the guide.

    Now that a .sbf file has been released for our Droid's we can always recover them using RSD Lite. it is pretty easy to use this. Of course if you physically break your phone it won't help, but if you screw anything up software wise you are covered.

    If you unplug your phone while doing this it will break it beyond repair, Verizon will not be able to fix it. DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS UNLESS YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED TO USE IT!

    Here is a guide.
    A. A stock sbf file
    2.0 VZW_A855_ESD20_QSC6085BP_C_01.3B.01P_SW_UPDATE.sbf
    2.0.1 VZW_A855_ESD56_QSC6085BP_C_01.3E.01P_SW_UPDATE_03. sbf
    2.1VZW_A855_ESE81_QSC6085BP_C_01.3E.03P_SW_UPDATE_02. sbf

    B. http://androidoverdrive.com/downloads/RSDLite4.6.7z (RSDLite 4.6)

    C. Current Motorola Drivers

    Make sure you download the correct drivers for your system either 32bit or 64bit

    1. Download all of the files above including the 32-bit OR 64-bit Motorola USB Drivers.
    2. Install RSDLite AND the 32-bit or 64-bit Motorola USB Drivers (Depends on your system most will need 32-bit some will need 64-bit)
    3. Connect your phone to USB and turn it off then turn it back on, while your phone is booting hold up on the DPAD. (Some users have said it is easier to hold the volume down button and camera button instead.)
    4. Run RSD Lite 4.6 as Administrator (For all you Vista and 7 folks out there. If you are using XP you may not need to run as Administrator)
    5. Click the ... next to the filename box and browse to where you saved the .sbf file and double click the .sbf file.
    6. Hit start and below it should give you completion progress and all of that.
    7. Once your phone is done being flashed (It may take a while so don't unplug it) it will reboot and you will be back at stock 2.0.1 no root.
    8. Done

    dordodim for the sbf file. ikithme for guide.
    Motorola for the awesome phone, usb drivers and RSDLite.

    I used that method above to take mine from 2.2 to 2.0.1 to do some testing and went right back to 2.2... So i know it works...

    did you root?

    or did you just force the update?

    if you are rooted go back to stock

    if you are not then you are fine

    You'll be fine, you don't need to do anything. The 2.2 update you forced is the same one that people are receiving over the air.

    PROTIP:Never post your email or phone number on the internet, or you will be getting a lot of calls by goons and or 4chan members.

    Welcome to the internet, and I suggest you read and follow The Rules.

    Thanks I did the steps in Outlaws post and it worked great . I am just new to alot of this the other forums I belong to are guys that I do actually talk live to alot . I ride a Harley and know lots of good folks from all over the world that ride them also . I was with the Family MC for a time and now I ride with Dream Riders Bicking For Children . So I guess I was a little nieve before . This seems to be a great site for info though alot of people a heck of a lot smarter than me for sure. As I posted in the intro thread I am 42 and retired from 22 yrs. in the auto industry ,wife is a nurse 5 grown girls . Thanks everyone for the much needed help.

    I was asked this morning if I had used an update floating around online and the guy actually looked to see for himself, The speaker was messed up when talking on it it sounded really muffled , store guy tried it himself and tried different things and finally said it was just a bad phone , Got the droid 2 and it really does blow the droid away. the 2.2 is alot different than the one I got offline for the droid also.

    I thought that the OTA 2.2 (currently being rolled out) is identical to the file lots of folks force updated last week. Are they different?
