    I was trying to flash my wife's Droid 2 to stock using this file

    VRZ_A955_2.3.20_1FF_01.sbf

    Which i thought was the right file.

    Now I get this message

    Bootloader
    D2.37



    Code Corrupt

    Battery OK
    OK to Program
    Connect USB
    Data Cable

    I was following Darkonions guide on XDA developers (here)

    Can this be saved?

    Help !!

    What operating system is your computer? And do you have the latest rsd (4.9) I Had the same problem trying to do the d2g sbf from a laptop. Tried it on a desktop and it worked.

    I am on Win 7 Ultimate 64 Bit. I am on a laptop. I had RSD lite 4.9 but all the tutorials i read suggested using 4.7 so i downgraded (and added the patch)

    Is the SBF at least the right SBF?

    Follow the link that jbirdvegas sent. I also read that the file that have may be corrupt. It is recoverable provided you download the file and follow the directions in the link

    So i had the file, so i did a check sum on it based off what the wiki link said.

    It's happening but the same thing that happened before is happening again.

    It's stuck at loading RAM downloader for bootloader. Last time it was stuck at 97% and this time at 99%.

    It's still plugged in, what do I do ?

    Are you running rsd as an administrator? Also have you downloaded the latest drivers for the phone? When I had this problem I used an XP machine to get it to work.

    Try another version of rsdlight or more complex it all else fails option run a linux live usb and use sbf_flash to flash ... it is a better flashing agent

    Easy fix catch the recovery by doing battery pull then boot into recovery. When you get the error sign press the search button and wipe cache and data. Reboot and done

    APologies for not answering your questions

    jdjbmedina: I did run as administrator, and did install the latest drivers. Unfortunately I don't have access to a XP machine (I did run this in XP compatibility mode)

    JBirdVegas: The flash happend, and it rebooted, but it's stuck in a boot loop. I have already tried a boot loop. About to try a factory reset now. Don't have access to a Linux machine either, :(

    After much messing around, it's back up :D

    Thanks all. This was my first time messing with the D2, I usually mess around with my DX and am kinda familiar with things on it. I actually had to google how to enter the recovery mode in this :)

    Now on to rooting and custom ROMs :)

    Any suggestions with the ROMs? I have Liberty GB 0.8 on my DX and like it quite a bit. I was going to go the same route on the D2 but i am willing to experiment a bit :)

    For the D2 there are a lot of ROMs, but as another post on this forum, it all depends on the end user. I have tried a few of course for the D2G, not the D2 and bricked my phone on one occasio. I hear a lot about cynagenmod or angel, never tried them however. I have used fission rom manager to try that out, that was good. there is a discusion board here on this forum....

    Great thanks, I guess I will just look around for a bit :)

    Wife doesn't update or anything very often which is why the donate version of liberty with the toolbox was looking good. I was going through boards there and zombiestomp GB looked interesting based on comments. I guess I will look around some more before I put a custom ROM on there :)
