    d2g will not complete sbf

    Hi guys, looking for some help here. I'm new to the community and rooting so bear with me as I try to figure this problem out. Last week I accidently took my phone swimming. I then slid keyboard open and took out battery and sd card and let it dry for a couple days. Suprisingly, the phone still kind of works. It turns on but goes straight to the bootloader screen. I have never rooted the phone but I did buy it used so i'm not sure what the previous owner did to it. When it boots up it says:

    bootloader d0.11
    battery ok
    ok to program.

    I've tried flashing with different versions of rsd lite, most recently 5.3.1 with different sbf's, 2.4.29, 2.4.33 and 2.3.20, 2 fail instantly but the 2.4.29 will get all the way to the switching to bp passthrough mode then fails. it reaches 100% the phone says sw update complete, then just reboots back to bootloader and rsd says:

    failed flashing process: phone[0000]: error switching phone to bp passthrough mode (0x70Be); phone connected.

    I've tried it on windows xp and 7. Same result on both. I can access the phone by holding down the camera button while turning on and it will boot like normal but will not get network signal. I can get wifi though so I checked for available updates and it says there is an available update so I download that, it does its thing for a bit then reboots right back into the bootloader screen.
    I've also booted into recovery and tried the wipe cache then reboot but still boots back to bootloader.

    So any suggestions? also, what is bp passthrough mode? My version of bootloader seems weird too, most other people's seem to have a different version than d0.11...

    I had same problem.

    Download motohelp drivers.
    Install the drivers.
    This all has to be on winxp32bit
    Download the vrw version sbf(VRZ_A956_2.4.33_1FF_01.sbf)
    Make sure you have rsd lite 4.9
    Before you load rsd lite hold shift then right click on icon.
    Run as admin
    Load the vrw sbf
    Make sure your battery is full
    Turn phone into bootloader
    Plug phone in
    Once it says connected. Start flashing sbf

    Ok so I uninstalled rsd lite 5.3 and installed 4.9. still same error. I've tried this more than 10 times with different versions of rsd and sbf's. The only thing is on this xp 32bit version I can hold shift and choose "run as" then choose the administrator user user instead of "run as administrator"

    You need to install the proper drivers. That's why its not switching. Download motohelp then install the msi then run the helper. Run clean. Its supposed to load a driver when its switching to bp. You'll see it in the system tray. If it doesntload the driver when its switching it will fail.

    Run as admin and type the password you set when installing xp

    Sounds like it might be fried. You might try this methodology as a last ditch effort. Read the whole thing (including the links), pretty straight forward: SBF with Linux...

    I've got motohelper and I did the clean only but after doing that rsd didn't recognize my device, so I did the clean and re-install and tried again still no luck. Nothing came up in the system tray. What do you mean by install the msi?

    Msi is the Microsoft install file. Restart pc with phone not connected. Clean and reinstall drivers. Make sure you have a full battery. That's very important. Once drivers are installed. Load the rsd lite by holding shift then righteous click icon run as then run as admin and type your password in. Once open load the file I told you about earlier. Then boot phone into bootloader(I have same version) once loaded and it says code corrupt battery ok to program plug usb in and then start flashing. If your battery is dying it will fail. It needs more than 50%. I had the same exact problem to a t. I got it working by that method

    Fyi the battery wont charge in the phone. Light may go on but it doesn't charge. I had to buy abattery charger from verizon. Fits the bp6(7)x batteries. After I charged it the flash worked. Since then I've flashed a few times testing roms and switching back to stock

    Let us know how it works out. FYI, you don't have to install Ubuntu unless you want to. Ubuntu has full functionality (at least for this task) running off the CD. Once you're don SBFing you can reboot and will be back on winbloze.
