    Handing down Droid 1 (stock)- Need help preparing for new user

    I just purchased the Galaxy Nexus and will be handing down/up my Original unrooted Droid 1 to my father. Before doing so I want to get it in tip-top condition. I found this thread: "If you have FC, lag, sounds, etc and think your og droid HW is failing - READ THIS. Indeed, my Droid had been having these symptoms including the lag, crazy static sounds, etc. So from my reading it appears that I need to follow this method instead of simply doing a hard reset. I don't want to root the phone, only use an .sbf file to get the phone completely, and truly back to factory settings. So my plan is:

    1. Follow the instructions in the above linked thread and at the article: How To: Unroot the Motorola Droid | TheUnlockr that was linked to in that thread.

    2. Do not continue with the process to root the device. I will just leave it as is after following the instructions at theunlockr.com

    Questions:

    a) Does this seem like a reasonable approach?

    b) What is the most reliable source for getting the correct .sbf file and most recent RSD lite program? I want to make sure the sbf file I'm getting is unmodified and is truly the stock file with no additions or subtractions. Currently the phone is on Android version 2.2.3, Build FRK76. If I can't get the .sbf file for FRK76 it is my understanding that if I use an earlier version the OTA update back to FRK76 will be pushed to the phone by Verizon.

    c) Please let me know if I have violated rules/protocol by asking for help finding .sbf and RSD lite. I am very paranoid about such things and I will edit my post ASAP if I have done anything that is not permissible.

    d) If anyone has an easier, more straightforward way of accomplishing what I wish to do, please let me know. Thank you very much for your help!

    Just so I am clear. Right now you are on the latest and you are rooted correct?

    No. I am not rooted. However, I am on the latest firmware. I'm not looking to root- just want to get the factory image flashed to help solve the problems which I'm having as described in the "If you have FC, lag, sounds, etc...." post. I figured the best way to do that would be to follow the first part of the instructions to get the phone back to stock and not continue with the directions for rooting.

    Ok sorry, now I got you. I missed the part where you said about your issues. And I was looking there in that thread, it seems like everything you need is there.

    The only thing you may need is RSD Lite. For that just Google RSD Lite and see what versions you get. The one I have always used is 4.9 and have had very good luck with it. You could try a newer version but being an older device and running an older .sbf it shouldn't be necessary.

    I've been trying to get this to work but I'm running into some problems. I'm using RSD Lite 5.0 because it was the easiest one for me to find. The bootloader is 2C.7C. Originally when I tried to flash the "start" button was grayed out and I couldn't start the process. Following some suggestions on another forum I copied the file to c:/ and shortened the name to "abc.sbf". This solved the start button problem. However, when I click start, I get an error message: "Failed flashing process. Failed flashing process. (0x7100); phone connected". I'm using Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate with the updated motorola drivers. Repeated restarts of the computer and the phone have failed to alleviate the problem. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Sorry but I had a very very long day at work today.

    Well I am not terribly good at trouble shooting for SBF issues and I do not know which .sbf you need for that boot loader. I only know a couple things to try out. First, try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for your device. Try a different version of RSD because sometimes that helps. And last but not least try another computer.

    I literally have somewhere between 10 and 15 gigs of downloads from the og droid. I could probably find the stock 2.2 sbf and give you a 4.6 rsdlite I think thats what it is lol. I don't delete anything. Anywhere from 2.0 to 2.3.7 for it

    The .sbf file I have was downloaded from Peter Alfonzo's site linked on If you have FC, lag, sounds, etc and think your og droid HW is failing - READ THIS.. As far as I know it is the stock FRG22D file. If anyone has 4.6 RSDlite, that would be great!
