    hey guys

    i was on the latest official gingerbread firmware on my droid x 2.3.4

    i tried following this http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/wiki/Motorola_Droid_X:_Full_Update_Guide

    b
    ut i didnt read this

    WARNING: The 2.3.4 OTA release, the bootloader was patched to version 30.04. If an attempt is made to downgrade to an earlier version through the SBF method below, the bootloader will throw an error and the phone will not boot.

    Now when I boot I get stuck in the bootloader with Mem Map Blank and error code
    error a5,70,70,001f

    how do i fix this?

    im using rsd lite, im guessing i just need the right sbf? can someone point me in the right direction before i run out of battery!?!?​

    You need to flash either the .621 or .604 Milestone SBF, the .621 update (Android 2.3.4) broke the ability to go back to any earlier builds other than builds for the Milestone X (non-Verizon branded version of the Droid X).

    https://sites.google.com/site/motosbf/droid-x-sbf-files - use the one all the way at the bottom, with the warning around it

    so i finally got it fixed and im good to go.

    but im not rooted still :(

    is there still a solution to root on 2.3.4?

    at one point i was rooted with a custom recovery but i tried flashing a custom rom that was on the wrong kernel i guess and it wouldnt flash

    and i had already wiped data and cache with no backup so i was screwed...

    which rom should i flash and how do i re-root?!

    thansk

    no root for .621, you're gonna have to flash the Milestone .602 SBF and root that to flash a ROM.

    You'll have to root it after you flash

    There's a one click utility, google D3 one click root. Also I messed up, you need the .604 Milestone SBF, I typed the wrong number. 602 won't work

    I'll write it out in detail for ya

    1. Downgrade to the Milestone build using RSD (remember to do a data wipe after it finishes)
    2. Root using D3 One Click
    3. Download ROM Manager from the market and install CWM Recovery
    4. Download D2 Bootstrap or DX Bootstrap from the market, run "Bootstrap Recovery" and then "Reboot Recovery" (DX Bootstrap will only work if you turn USB Debugging off)
    5. Once you're rebooted into CWM Recovery wipe cache, data and dalvik cache (under "advanced"), then install the ROM zip from the SD Card

    Make sure you use this version of CM7- Updated Info On RevNumbers CM4DX-GB(5/22/2012, HDMI Out, 1% Battery, No Charge LED, FM radio, Charge While Off) - CyanogenMod [shadow] - RootzWiki, any other version is for the FroYo kernel and would softbrick your phone if you flashed them and you'd have to start all of this over

    It's been a long time since i ran cm7 and i think development on it stopped almost 2 months ago. Pooka who was maintaining it will be maintaining aokp after 13thangel does his final update of aokp M6. Angel is busy working on other ics roms and will start working on jellybean with BMc. You'll just have to check out the link leftspin provided for you to find out what's working on cm7 and what isn't. I think for the most part it's very solid. There's alot of roms available for the droidx which you'll find thread links to in the development section of various droidx forums so you can read up on them and try them out for yourself. If you need links to anything just ask. Overall the roms are very simple to flash so there's really no reason not to try out most of them. Since your on 621 if you want to try out the blur based roms you'll need to used the patched version of those roms but with 2nd init roms like cm7, ics, miui, liquid etc. you can flash those as they are. Here's a good thread link by goose that should answer alot of questions you may have http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-general-discussion/45783-important-info-621-update.html

    Nope since your on 621/604 you can't go back to any earlier versions (just like the previous link i gave you explains). You can only use rsdlite to sbf to 621 or do the milestoneX 604 sbf using kds iso method which you did earlier.

    CM7 is solid, DSP Manager is a little buggy on all the Moto devices but you can just uninstall it.

    Also, AOKP has a ton of frills!

    AOKP has frills?!?! im loving milestone 6.

    and i just flashed the sbf on linux with that dvd i burned. v604.

    but this http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/gingerbread-development-hacking/37234-root-x-d3-1-click-root-method-works-gb-602-gb-605-a.html

    s
    ays that i should be on 602 or 605... im on 604!

    what do i do?! i downloaded this ISO which flashed the sbf

    Download - 1KDStaz_MX_4.5.604.iso (Milestone X 4.5.604 Gingerbread)
    210.8mb (210,763,776 bytes)
    MD5 (1KDStaz_MX_4.5.604.iso) = b8d32cfca4d138f3076b0bf85ae6318e
    This is a special image. It is used for those that have taken the 4.5.621 OTA update and have lost root. This image uses the nTelos Milestone X 4.5.604 sbf file. This results in a non-Verizon system but you are able to use ZergRush (included) to root. Only use this file if you are on 4.5.621 or already on 4.5.604.

    That kds mx 4.5.604 iso has the Zergrush root method built into the file so you should of been able to use that to get yourself rooted after the sbf was done.
