    I'm seeing a lot of people considering flashing the 2.2 SBF to receive the OTA upgrade.

    This page still appears to have good download links, along with directions how to flash: Droid X 2.2 Full SBF leaked - Download now

    Here's the latest Motorola drivers: http://www.motorola.com/consumers/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=bda09ec8009a0210VgnVCM1000008806b00aRCRD

    There is a RDS Lite 4.9, but the 4.8 should still work fine for your X.

    You CANNOT flash to 2.2 if you've already flashed the 2.2.1 leaked version. This will brick your phone.

    However, if all you did was remove bloatware, or deodex and install a theme, the 2.2 sbf is still an option.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure flashing back to anything bricks your phone, especially from 2.2.1 back to 2.1

    Sorry guys, I was vague. I updated the OP.

    Several people that deodexed or removed apps have asked about sbfing so I thought I'd find where the 2.2 SBF was available.

    Ideally you can just check your bootloader version.


    • turn your phone off,
    • turn it back on while holding the volume down and camera button
    • note the bootloader version
    Version 30.0.4 means you've already have the updated bootloader and you will probably brick your phone if you sbf with 2.2.

    With 30.03, you should be able to flash back to 2.2 to get the OTA, hopefully tomorrow.

    Blurry 1.6.3 has the android 2.2.1 system files only. If you check your bootloader, you should see no 30.0.3, same as OTA froyo, (assuming you had 2.2 prior to Blurry) which is ready to upgrade with OTA, provided you ditch the rom.

    i'm still on the 2.3.9 leak (yea, bad, i know haha). is this what i need to get to 2.3.340? sbf with this then OTA to 2.3.340?

    anyone willing to hop on aim and hold my hand a bit? i think i can manage fine, but i'd be more comfortable haha.
