    So I bought a used Droid 2 on eBay which according to the seller had "Android Software Issues". The pics of the bootloader screen looked like an easy fix for me, since I've been bricked on my Droid X several times and been through the RSD flashing process a number of times. When the phone came in, I went through the standard flashing process to flash a clean full SBF, but can't get past the bootloader screen that says:

    MEM_MAP Blank
    Service Req'd
    Battery OK
    OK to Program
    Connect USB
    Data Cable

    Now, as I was doing a battery pull between one of the many flash attempts, I noticed that the water indicator sticker was red, meaning that the unit had been exposed to water. Can it be possible that the hardware is bad?

    Any help is GREATLY appreciated!

    This is a shot in the dark. I don't know what you're using to sbf, but try using this instead:

    TBH & MyDroidWorld Present: Droid 2 (2.3.20) Triple Threat

    Everything you need is in that thread. If that fails let us know.

    I'm also going to move you to the Rescue Squad. I don't know if you're rooted or not right now so I'll put you in stock.

    Thanks Hook. I think I tried that before, but I'm going to do it again step by step. I'll let you know what happens.

    Ok, did the TBH Triple Threat, and it got rid of the MEM_MAP Blank Service Req'd message. Now it's back to the bootloader with the following message:

    Battery OK
    OK to Program
    Transfer Mode: USB

    RSD takes the phone through the 99% mark, and the programming seems sucessful, but after it goes to the M boot screen, it goes back to the bootloader. RSD gives the following error in it's error log file:

    ERROR: Flash failure: Phone[0000]: Error switching phone to BP Pass through mode (Error Code: be),
    Detailed Error Details: Direction of the Error=No Direction, Command Value=0, Code Group Number=257
    File: D:\GitProjects\hdt_windows_flash\flash\code\flashdll\FlashHdlr.cpp
    Device ID: 0

    I'm going to try a battery pull and reflash....but it seems like I've done that a thousand times already. Thanks for any help you can give!

    Are you sure it's not a Milestone 2?

    To tell you the truth, I don't know. Bought it used on eBay, didn't come in box. Didn't think about it possibly being a different build. Milestone 2 is the Global one, right? I'll try to find some Milestone SBF stuff...

    Thanks, and good observation!

    The Milestone 2 has the large screen like the X?

    Anyway if it is a Milestone 2 you still can't use it with Verizon.

    Looked up on Moto's site, and the Milestone is apparently the same as the Droid 2. That's what I was thinking but now I'm not so sure...they don't list a Droid 2 on there. Maybe that's just the Verizon name for it?

    Ok it's definitely not the Global. Still plugging along here. Thinking more and more it's a hardware issue. Any of you know if the hardware can make this happen?

    Sorry for the delay in getting to you. I haven't had much free time lately.

    What VERSION is listed on the bootloader? :) That might help us diagnose what you need to have.

    I've tried both the 2.35 and the 2.37 bootloaders.

    Could it be hardware related? I've tried everything man. Every combination of bootloaders and sbfs. I've read where others who had water damage had similar problems. I'm wondering if that could be the problem here.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    So you have a regular D2. If it's been immersed and you're having these problems then you most likely have a ruined device. I hope you didn't pay much for it because about the only thing it's good for right now is parts. :(

    Before we give up completely, however, what version of RSD Lite are you using? What version of Windows are you flashing from?

    That BP error is usually a USB fault. But if you've been using RSD Lite successfully on another phone and you keep getting those errors, I'm giving it at least an 80% chance of being bricked.

    I'm going to try flashing from another computer before it's parts. That's what I was thinking...that the computer wasn't hooking back up to the phone after its reboot. I have flashed my Droid X a number of tomes from this computer with no issues.

    As for the version of RSD Lite, I think ive tried them all. 4.7 4.8 4.9, patched, unpatched, all of them. I can get it to say software update successful, but when it goes to reboot, I see the moto logo, then back to the bootloader, and the BP fail error.

    Is the D2 flash process any different thn the DX? As far as I've read it seems to be the same process. Maybe I'm going wrong there. ???

    Nope, it's the same. But you'll HAVE to use 4.8 or 4.9, otherwise it's no-joy no matter what you try to do.

    I'm going to load it all up on another computer tomorrow and give it a fresh go with 4.9.

    Just for clarification, what bootloader and sbf versions would you recommend when I start over on the new computer? I'm not sure if the phone has had any updates, or if its rooted. If I can get back to stock anything I'll be thrilled. Otherwise, its gonna be parts to fix a couple other droids....

    Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!

    That SBF and whatever the official, latest bootloader is -- and I thought that was 2.35. I was under the impression, somehow, that the 2.37 was for the leaked 3.something version of Blur. :)

    The 2 isn't my specific area of expertise, but I do know enough to get you hopping again if it's not a hardware fault.
