    i tried to sbf back to 2.2. i used the file from rooolers guide, the 2.3.340 full. it got up to 99% and then it said failed. i did a battery pull and it came up on the bootloader screen and said code corrupt and ok to program. can i still save my x? id hate to have to buy a new phone, especially since i dont have $$$$

    Your SBF file was probably corrupted somehow. Get a new copy and if you haven't done so already use the Linux cd method to SBF. It's allot easier than fighting with RSDlite.

    Are you on a Mac or PC?

    Please list all currently installed software you're using to attempt flash and drivers if any.
    Once you get a chance definitely REdownload the SBF file like others suggested.

    make sure you have the current moto drivers installed, what OS are you running? and what version of rsdlite are you also running, this can have an impact and can explain why you are running into an error

    if your on windows vista/7 i recommend rsdlite 4.9 as it works well with mine
    windows xp i recommend rsdlite 4.8 as i keep hearing it works better with windows xp than 4.9 does

    make sure your moto drivers are current, i never run it in admin mode, but thats your choice

    Ok guys I haven't ignored your advice or given up, I just haven't had time. I will double check everything and if that all fails I will try the linux method. Crossing my fingers here :p

    Whatever you do you, it's best you do it quickly while your battery still has enough charge. Unless you have an external battery charger or another way to charge your battery, otherwise you are asking for a big headache ;)

    I had this happen the other night. I've sbf'd 100 times on the same computer, same configuration, etc, got to 99%, then had some message like downloading ram bootloader....something and then it failed. Bootloader screen said corrupt code. Then I went back to an older computer and tried to sbf with the rsdlite 4.8 I had on there, and all was well. I was really freaked though, because up to that point, I've never had problems sbf'ing.
