    Okay i've been out of the loop for a little so bare with me on this one ...

    1.) I just recently seen that my liberty rom was out of date 1.5 so i went to my liberty tool box and went into nightlies the only one in there was v.07 so i downloaded it went into bootstrap recovery wiped data and cache and the whole 9. I then went into recovery and wiped everything again then installed from sd card. installation was successful my droid 2 went to boot up and got stuck at the boot logo turned the phone on and off and it never made it pass the yellow fist. SO i decided to recover my back up rom which loaded right up and this is where I sit.

    2.) Upon recovering my backup rom everything on my phone was wiped including my gmail account which i have forgotten my password to and google doesn't have live support and their dip ****s anyway i can't get all the apps i purchased from the market like liberty tool box donate and ect. SO now My head hurts and I'm in need of guidance on what to do.

    3.) right now I've been to different sites and forums read tutorials and watched some.

    A.) Should i or do i have to sbf back to stock froyo then get gingerbread 2.3.3 rooted ?

    B.) can i go right to gingerbread or do i have to follow the yellow brick road ?

    Any help with this complete melt down and saga would be apreciated Thanks !

    Nightlies is for gingerbread only you were on froyo. Basically sbf back to froyo and then restore your nandroid backup. I would suggest switching to gb though because its pretty good and nightlies are running stable and quick with great battery life. Btw you just need to find the rooted deodexed gb, standard wipes and flash it, then go back and install nightlies. One more thing you will need your google account password so try and find it out. Good luck.

    When you get back to froyo rooted its just an update.zip that you do in recovery.

    Nope, from your phone right now(guessing its still in the screwed up state) you would sbf back to froyo. Then root it. Here is where you have options. You can 1. restore your liberty nandroid backup. 2. Use the GB update.zip to get to a rooted /deodexed state.(if you do this you will need your google password to get your apps back)

    Edit: I am suggesting SBFing because im not sure what kind of stuff may happen from putting a GB rom on a froyo build and restoring a backup. Just seems better to start from the beginning again.

    You can now restore your nandroid back up from liberty or yes you can go to GB using the. Zip file. Just make sure its the rooted,deodexed version made specifically for the droid 2 if you purchased the TBH app its in there. And once again try and get your google password. Its important to know if you are going to be messing with roms because of the amount of wipes you have to do.

    You can either do it using rom manager from the market or using koush's bootstrap app. Rom manager is easier but doesn't always work for me. I would suggest the bootstrap app to boot into recovery and scroll down to backup/restore and hit backup

    You don't do it rsd you do it through recovery, using bootsrap or rom manager. Flash it just like a rom.

    4shared search z4root run it. It has a tendency to fail first try if so back out of app restart phone run it again.

    go into your app drawer and see if theres a crossbones app that says superuser under it...and after you sbf and all that try and always do a battery pull reboot b4 rooting again or anything this just gives it a very clean phone just like out of the box and then root again and all that....and to clarify you can NOT flash a froyo backup while on GB rom or you will get a bootloop everytime you have to SBF back to stock then root>bootstrap>restore for the backup to work

I'm now trying to liberate my phone do i have to get V0.5, V0.6, first before i get V0.7 ??? I still don't have my google account back so i created a new one i'm about to purchase the toolbox for the second time which i dont mind the developers deserve every dollar just wondering if i have to get the previous Versions first?
