    You said you've tried it in normal boot and recovery mode. Have you tried it in bootloader mode? Holding X gives you recovery mode. Holding up will put you in bootloader mode. You need to be in bootloader mode.

    Also, make sure you run sbf_flash as sudo.

    Honestly, the people who put these files up on their websites need to post detailed instructions. This stuff can get confusing...

    Maybe, but if you have too much information other people get confused, so why risk confusing the 50% of users who don't need the extra information that 2% require?

    However, if the post is missing information that it needs, like a command or two, please point it out to the guide writer and it will be added post haste.

    Thanks for pointing it out -- I'm sure MotoCache will want to add that ASAP.

    Glad to help.
    Oh okay I dont think I waited 15 minutes. Was probably like 6 or 7 minutes until I said oh man I think I screwed up my phone hahahahhahahha. But yeah once I pulled the battery and rebooted back to stock recovery did the wipe and then rebooted and it came back up with all stock defaults. Even had to activate my phone again. I made a nandroid backup before I attempted all that. Then followed this guide again to get sprecovery and root and restored my backup and boom im right back to where I was before. That is good to know I have the stock file now if I ever need it. Thanks alot for all your help furbearing I appreciate it. I see alot of people asking this same question. "If I do this how do I get back to stock?' I will try to help your sore keys out by providing everyone with the link you provided me.

    I don't mean to answer for Moto, and I'm a raw newbie at this, but Moto's guide worked for my manually updated frg22d Droid.
    Anybody who wants to can feel free to answer for me. Honestly I put "regardless of OS version" in the title for a reason and it gets a little tiring to keep answering that question with "Any OS". Please, everybody, "any OS" - even ones that haven't come out yet. OK? If someone comes out with an OS that somehow it doesn't work with (which would mean it would have to be like Windows or something because it will work on any Linux based OS that is compiled for the ARM series of processors) then we'll update the OP to say so.

    Install the larger update from the circus thread. It'll put stock recovery back on and give you bone-stock FRG01B.
    Or do a factory reset and flash on the FRG01B SBF. That'll put it to stock for sure - and you'll have pretty much an empty, new phone.

    These instructions will root any Droid 1. Period.

    Yes, but your first question says you were going to unroot and wanted to know if this would then root you -- which it will. If you're not going to unroot, then you don't need this.

    I can see how my phrasing could have been misleading:

    If you didn't catch the boot and the OS booted, continue with Step 12.
    What I was getting at was that even if you didn't catch the boot -- keep on rolling and we'll see if it mattered in a bit.

    I've updated the sentence to read:

    Even if you didn't catch the boot and the OS booted, still continue with Step 12.
    Thanks for helping me make it more clear.

    Why are all the w's in your post links to the android-wifi-tether page?
    the W on my keyboard was not working so I copied a w from somewhere and pasted it everytime i wanted to type a W, that W just must have linked to that page. My apologies. In other news I fixed the W key (
    That's cool. I was just wondering if it was a subliminal promotion for the wifi-tether app.

    He and the other poster aren't really talking about this guide. They are talking about sbf_flash which is a Linux tool you can use to do flashes in place of RSD Lite (which of course won't run on Linux). I just built a shiny new Ubuntu laptop the other day and should be running sbf_flash on it sometime this weekend. I'll let you know how it goes.
