    The only thing I can find is that this takes you back to 2.01 without root and activation.......but I don't understand how it is better to unbrick your phone.

    Anyone?
    Brick = not booting. Not sure what message will appear on the screen but for BlackBerry's you would get an "Error 507" code that appeared on the screen.

    Basically, you can't even GET to SPrecovery to do a nandroid restore. Or if you can, then it's corrupted and there are major issues. Basically you've locked yourself out your phone and it's pretty much just a "brick".

    This process will allow you to use your computer by itself to reflash the stock OS back onto your phone.

    Until now, you had to make sure your recovery image wasn't corrupted or overwritten and that you had proper nandroid backups.

    Now, you can go wild and always know that no matter how badly you mess up the phone and lock it up permanently, well, you can get it back to stock and on your way to your nandroid backup.
    Much appreciated!! That makes sense. Thank you!!!

    The thing is people use the word brick too freely. It really means when the phone is dead and useless. Brick is when you cannot save the phone at all.

    You can fubar this phone all to crap and if you have the proper files you can bring it back to life. This is one of those files, this is a last resort condition. The cool thing about this is: it's designed for the stores to bring our phones back to life after we've blown them all to hell. You have to be careful with this file though, because if you corrupt the installation and can't even get a boot loop, odds are you're done and will have to purchase a new phone. If you can't get into the bootloader, you can't fix the phone at all.

    This .sbf file should ultimately prevent the droid from EVER becoming a brick if people use it correctly.

    Please excuse my noobness..But if we use this method, and need to be activated - we would have to ask VErizon to re-activate correct? would they do that? what would one say to them to get them to do it without raising suspicion?

    In most cases you can dial *228, option 1 to reactivate your phone.

    In the off chance you need a customer service rep, you can call. I've never had any questions when I need to activate.

    When I used this the other day, the sbf method, all I had to do was call the *228 and it worked fine
