    Hey guys,
    I have a droid 2 stuck at the bootloader. I have tried everything I can think of, but nothing has worked. I have used Windows 7, Ubuntu and XP pro. Both windows versions come back with the same error. Everything looks good with RSDlite 4.9 until it gets to "Failed flashing process. Phone[0000]: Error switching phone to BP pass through mode (0x70BE0); phone disconnected"

    I have tried 2 different 2.3.20 full SBF files. I have renamed them, cleared rsdlite log files and reinstalled RSDlite and moto drivers. I am also not able to get into stock recovery. I can get to the little guy with the exclimation point, but hitting the search button on the keyboard does nothing. Hopefuly I'm just missing something simple.

    I have bootloader D2.37 and it says battery OK and OK to program.

    Thanks for any help

    Well it completed. Everything looked good, but it just reboots back to the bootloader. Still can't get into the stock recovery

    If you unplug the phone after its completed and pull the battery it still boots into bootloader when you replace the battery and power it on?

    I'm not 100% sure about which file to flash for the droid x. I believe the most recent update was 2.3.340 for the droid x. Since the termination of the team black hat app from the market, I don't know a specific location to find the correct droid x sbf. Google should be able to find it if you just search on there. I hope this helps.

    Is there a difference between the flash files for the x and the droid 2 . Should I be looking for the 2.3.340 .
    Ill look for it but any other suggestions on why the first flash did not work.

    Droid 2 sbf - 2.3.20
    Droid X sbf - 2.3.340
    I wouldn't use a the X file on the D2 or vice versa.

    Honestly I have no idea. I just got the phone like this. Never heard of a truly bricked phone if you can get to the bootloader. Figured I would give it a try.

    The reason I ask is because in Froyo on the D2 after holding x and power (and the exclamation triangle appears) you press the physical search key on the keyboard to boot into stock recovery. For the gingerbread leak its a little different. Instead of pressing the search key after seeing the exclamation triangle press both volume up and down buttons (and then it goes into stock recovery). It's probably best to figure out (if you can) how the phone got to its current state and then go from there. Good luck.

    Did you wipe the cache as well in recovery? I would try that first.

    Im a little confused as to what your asking. Make sure you get the Droid X sbf and not the Droid 2 one.

    Edit: I think I understand a little better now. It's really best not to root until you've fully read up on what exactly your doing. This way, you'll better be able to diagnose a problem when you come across one....and more importantly, you can really screw up your phone if your not careful

    I will try to get some better information. Neither the search key or the up and down arrows do anything. Is there anything else I should try?

    Sent from my DROIDX using DroidForums

    Anyone know if there is a recovery only sbf file available for the droid 2? Maybe that would get my recovery back and I could wipe it. I can only find one for the D1 and X.
