Will flashing sbf's onto your phone with RSD Lite too many times mess up your phone at all?
There is a larger potential of completing killing your phone.
If it makes you feel better though I have had failures in RSDLite that left my phone with code corrupt (message on boot), I've done a battery pull halfway through a flash, etc, and I am still here to speak about it.
YMMV, I recommend you don't tempt fate more than you have to.
Yea I've had the code corrupt message too, but will it depreciate your memory or anything?
Probably no more than normal usage would.
I did, and I lost this round. I'll go get a new refurbed Droid tomorrow. Maybe I can blame it on a failed OTA update.
None of the re-installing worked. The Droid won't even stay on now, pops on to tell me the battery is too low to program and then shuts off. The white light is on next to the charging port, but nobody is home.
Sounds good, I guess I'll wait this OTA thing out a couple more days, and if it doesn't come I'm going back to the unofficial 2.1
Leave it on the charger for a little while then try again.
Wow, yeah I wasn't expecting anyone to actually end up killing their device
Def. let it charge overnight. As long as the programming bootloader is still there, it should be able to be salvaged.
I do get that...
I'll put it on the charger, head off to bed, and see what tomorrow brings me. If more failures, I'll just take it back to VZW and get a new one.
Success!!!!!!!! Ok I finally F'n got it on my seveth try. I will discribe exactly what I did it may or may not work for you. Ok first I tried to flash the sbf and failed. Second I turned off the phone but kept RSDlite open. I then switched usb ports and booted back into bootloader. Just for a note, when I hit "show device" after I switched ports and rebooted it showed some info that it previously didnt. Once I did that and ran the SBF file it worked. I am sure it sounds very convoluted to you as it does to me but who cares it worked. If its not working give this a shot and see if it works. If it does then maybe my three and a half hours of trial and error were worth something.
Good to know. It would be nice to see a pattern to this madness.
I must be lucky. I'm on Win 7 64 and successfully flashed sbf the first time with no problems following the guide step by step. I've re-rooted following the guide and was able to restore my BlackDroid V8 backup without a glitch.
