    I went back to 2.1, but only because I forgot to move the SU file which caused me to loose root. All I did was follow the instructions in the unbticking thread plus a few extra steps. The extra steps I had to figure out that werent in the unbricking thread were:

    1: After running the sbf it went into the boot loop and I had to pull the battery and boot into recovery to wipe the data and cache. After that it booted up into 2.1 and was working.

    2: The second issue was that after restoring 2.1 with the sbf I had the blue triangle and no connection so I skipped through all the setup stuff and opened the dialer and did the *228 thing which did not fix it, so then I dialed: ##7764726, SPC password: 000000, Select "User Activation", Change "MIN" to your full 10 digit phone number, change "MDN" to your 10 digit phone nummber, press "Done", press home key (to return to homescreen), phone will automatically restart. After that everything was working but I still had the blue triangle so then I tried the *228 and finally the blue triangle was gone and everything was back to normal

    All that so I could re-root and move the SU file and then go back to 2.2 with root intact lol. Sux to not follow instructions the first time lol.

    Hope that helps someone out.

    P.S. I used appbrain to restore my apps every time and it makes the whole process of wiping the data much more bearable, I highly recommend at least appbrain or some other method of backing up your apps.

    I agree. I had the same issues and those were the steps I took. After the initial steps listed in the thread to "unbrick" the phone got stuck in a bootloop and I will admit, I panicked. But I jut sat there for a second, looked up how to jump into recovery mode and figured, what the hell, I am already this bad why not try a full wipe? And then it worked short of the blue triangle of no-data so I figured hmmm..I guess it isn't fully activated. *228 to the rescue and it works just fine now.

    My issues came about oddly. I was rooted and updated to 2.2. I followed all instructions and verified everything but lost root. While attempting to fix this, it all went bad. Luckily, it is a fairly simple fix.

    how i went back to 2.1...

    installed rsd lite 4.7 in windows 7
    replaced pst_flash.ini file in c:/program files/motorola/rsd lite with patched one that came along with rsd lite 4.7
    unzipped sbf file
    opened sbf file with rsd lite
    turned off the phone
    connected the phone to pc through usb
    held volume down, camera, power buttons on phone to turn it on in bootloader mode
    sat back and watched rsd lite flash phone with files
    phone rebooted itself with factory 2.1 software
    called *22890 to automatically activate it
    done

    I used this. Basically what the person above me said

    Droid X SBF Windows Instructions. Finally. - Droid X Rooting - AllDroid Public Board - Droid X SBF Windows Instructions. Finally. - Droid X Rooting - AllDroid Public Board - AllDroid.org > Home

    One thing I did have to do for it to work was change the DeviceID setting in RSD Lite to First-Come. Wouldn't recognize my DX otherwise

    The only issue I have with Froyo now is that I can't send pictures via mms, both Handcent or stock. But I don't think that's a big enough issue for me to sbf, re-root, and update again. Unless my phone takes a dump I'm staying put for now.
