    The GB file would be an update.zip format but the sbf would need The software RSDlite 4.9 and an updated sbf file for the D2 need to be put on your computer to sbf. After you sbf you need to reflash GB and then you'll be activating and then you can do the normal process for flashing LBGB.07

    So you're good? I would totally get on liberty. Super nice rom. Yeah, I'm in Rochester. Guess you are not too far, huh? If you want to get on gb, let me know.

    What has wiped your sd? Clockwork wouldn't do that. Installing a rom wouldn't either.

    started the gingerbread thing. loaded sbf full, rooted, got everything working, then my other computer caught a virus, or i should say got inundated. up to 14 infections so far. and only at 43% of scan. oh, i also ran the z4 root. so will be trying to do the recovery and then load gingerbread.
