    downloaded the sbf file and RSD lite and my pc will not recognize my droid x. called motorolla and they said the driver was only for charging and transfering files to the sd card through my computer. downloaded motohelper 5.0, and still wont recognize phone. i even unrooted the phone and still wont see it. any suggestions?

    Ok found and downloaded file to make driver work but now when I go to rad lite it wont let me run the flash. It sees my phone, it let's me select the sbf file, but it wont let me hit the start button. Any clue?

    Not sure if this will help but I was having a similar issue and rsd just would not recognize my phone so I started looking around in the menus. I opened the " config" menu then clicked "deviceid options" and then changed it from automatic to first come first served and that did the trick.

    If running WIndows 7, you need to run RSD ar 'administrator'. To do this, open the folder where RSD is installed to and right click on the program and run as administrator.

    I am running RSD 4.9 no issues as long as I do the above.

    might be a dumb suggestion but when you see your phone in the list are you selecting it so it shows up in the device propertys box also?

    Another dumb question. Are you sure you're putting your phone into bootloader mode, and not just recovery? It should be black screen with white text, saying something about 30.04 and Battery OK and OK to program
