    Getting back to 2.1 on Droid X

    Can someone tell me how to return my Droid X to version 2.1 ?
    I'm not comfortable with the recent 2.2 version that was available and would like to get back to the original version that was shipped with my phone.

    I did not make a backup of 2.1 before I did the upgrade.
    Any help will be much appreciated.

    I posted this on another thread but saw this one and thought I'd put it here.


    I messed up my phone theming it after I installed froyo.

    My method to go back to 2.1:

    1. With the phone being turned off, start the phone in recovery (hold home button and power on the phone, then hit the search button once you see exclamation).

    2. Wipe data/system reset and then wipe cache

    3. Turn off the phone and now put it in bootloader mode (hold camera and volume down button while powering up)

    4. While in bootloader mode, connect the phone to your computer by usb.

    5. Run RSD lite and select the sbf file (will need to get rsd lite and the sbf if you don't have it)

    6. Make sure the phone shows as connected in RSD lite and begin the flashing process.

    7. Once the process completes and your phone reboots you should be back to 2.1 (you will have to re-root if desired)

    Yes, you will lose root. Your phone will be returned to stock (.604 version) and then you will have to reactivate it.

    rsd won't open.

    I don't know what I am doing wrong. I have done everything but when I click the rsd lite I get an hourglass and then nothing happens. Please help.

    All verizon wireless corporate stores (aka stores that's actually run by verizon and not a mom and pop store like My Bull Frog) has the needed softwares and know how on flashing phones back to the original software for most smart phones and very rarely nowadays needs to bother sending the phones in to get it done. This is because most issues with smart phones can be resolved by flashing the software back to the original software for said smart phone and this way it saves verizon from having to pay shipping costs to ship your phone elsewhere and giving you a dreaded loaner phone.
