If you don't have recovery as of now, sbf is the only way to do it.
However, he's also suggesting that if you have trouble with the update.zip, the sbf is the surefire way.
For those of you who seem to get stuck at the M logo, I just discovered that if you let it sit there for a while, it will eventually figure out that there isn't a proper recovery installed and it will reboot back to your normal phone. Then you can reinstall clockworkmod recovery or whatever you like. Or at least that's what happened to me.
