    Okay, here we go. This is my first post but I have some experience with rooting, sbfing, roming, theming, blah blah blah. Anyway, I have a Droid 2 Global which I had picked up pretty cheap because the person didn't want it anymore as it's stuck in the bootloader screen. Easy fix right? I loaded up RSDlite 4.9, downloaded the sbf file - specifically for droid 2 global 2.4.29 AND for safe measure, I downloaded 2.4.33 as well.

    Every time I've attempted, it freaks out. Let me explain - Every post I've read in regards to the droid 2 global, what SHOULD happen is the phone should reboot and possibly go into a boot loop, which at that point, I should be able to go into the stock recovery screen by holding the "x" key and pushing power to wipe data/cache. However, it won't even go into the boot loop. When the phone reboots, there's no M logo, it just goes back into the bootloader screen - despite the fact that RSDlite states the flash is complete! The exact same thing happens when i tried to sbf the 2.4.33. I've uninstalled and reinstalled RSDLite, uninstalled 4.9 and went back to 4.8.. which I received some error message.. later to read that 4.8 won't work with the A956. So I uninstalled 4.8 and reinstalled 4.9. I uninstalled everything that says motorola, all drivers, so on and so forth, reinstalled... nothing.

    I did read someplace that I could try to sbf a different bootloader but the link which was posted was broken so I couldn't even get the file and even if the file was available, I'm not sure how to sbf a different bootloader to begin with.

    I've tried different USB cables, I've tried different USB ports, I'm out of ideas other than the fact I have a paperweight.

    So please please please, any help/feedback would be greatly appreciated!!
    Here's what I have:

    Motorola A956
    Windows 7 32-bit
    Motorola RSDlite v4.9
    Motorola_Mobile_Drivers_4.7.1_MotoConnect_1.1.31

    EDIT: I guess it's not my first post?! weird lol

    I suppose I have to ask. Did you have windows 7 in compatibility mode and running as admin? Also turn the phone off with the battery out for 20 seconds or so; then put the battery in and hold the up arrow while holding the power button to manually go into the bootloader. Again make sure your 7 drivers are up to date and that ur device installed them correctly plus has a full charge. In the menu bar there is a button called device id. I personally set it to auto. If you need help let me know or one the geniuses in the chat.
