    If you are talking about following this guide then the answer is yes. I have used and referring this thread to a ton of people at this point.

    Ok first thing... are you running Gingerbread? If not... find the D2 file on MyDroidWorld.com and flash it like you did Liberty. You might have to sbf since you tried to load a GB ROM on a Froyo Firmware

    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
