drivin's thread is probably more helpful to your specific situation, and you sound smart enough about all of this stuff already that you might not need this, but i'm a visual person and walking through it like on this video/tutorial helped me a lot b/c i could see what i was supposed to see
Nope, tried that and it failed as well. That solution was more for RSD opening the sbf file anyway. Everything works fine as far as detection, the stupid program just won't flash the phone.
On a sidenote: Driven thanks for your willingness to help me out with this, I really appreciate it.

do the messages all look normal on the bootloader when you first Dpad/power on? and, as silly as this might seem, are you using the usb cable that came with the droid?
Yeah, I had suspected that it might be the bootloader but thats all normal. The only thing is that the text is "squashed" if you will, to the left side of the screen. I'm assuming it is supposed to be like that though. Everything else checks out. Cable is the one from the box.
If it makes any difference the phone is a "like new" replacement phone.
Well it says everything that it should. I can't remember the exact phrasing offhand but when I compare it to what is displayed on all the tutorials its all the same.
In the error logs I am getting two different errors:
ERROR: The superfile specified does not exist
Device ID: 0
ERROR: \\?\c:\sprecovery_ese81.sbfu]p—ôþÿÿÿ‚q™uñr™u@þï was not found.
File: X:\test_dev_usb\flash\code\flashdll\PST_FP_FlashFi leIO.cpp
Maybe that helps?
It says the file was not found in the second error message but it is clearly sitting in the root of my C:\ drive.
which sp recovery are you using? 0.99b3 or whatever it is? have you tried redownloading that? and doing it again? try sticking it in your programfilesx86 directory?
