    Try z4root to root. The rest is the same.

    I have a question about doing an SBF flash with 2.3.20

    The OP says the process is the same, except you only have one sbf file. After you apply that file, wipe data/cache and reboot, do you need to go back into recovery? Or at that point is the process done and your phone is back to stock?

    That is all you need to do..now if you wanna go a little further for when you are about to turn it in, go into settings, privacy, and do a factory reset....and it will be complete out of the box like new.

    Help! I have bricked my phone. I installed an app yesterday to block some startup apps. It a didn't work out very well for me, continuous boot loot. So I've been reading and working on a fix all day. finally I came across this school thread and ran the RSDlite 3 times, all reported Status: finished, and result: Pass. the phone is stuck in this Boot mode now, and I get error messages:A5,70,70,00,1F. Under that it reads:
    NEW_MAP Blank
    Service Req'd
    Battery OK
    Ok to program
    Transfer Mode:
    USB

    What to do, what to do???

    That is the bootloader screen. That is where you need to be to flash the sbf.

    Stay calm, you will get it resolved! It will be a good learning experience!

    What bootloader do you have? Did you flash the proper SBF? The error you're reporting is mostly reported when the wrong SBF was used.

    R2 D2 is alive again! Scary stuuf

    I got her, what a learning curve that was!!! I found another SBF, and this one worked. It was a Droid 2 SBF, so I rooted it again, reinstalled BootStrapper, and I'm reinstalling my last backup with CW now.
    All is well so far. I couldn't find a SBF for the R2 D2 version, that would have been easier!!! But this seems to have worked.

    Thanks guys!

    Sometimes it's not a case of doing it "perfectly", it's a case of "I'm working now". :D

    Glad it's working for you!

    quick question, I see version 2.2 and 2.3 talked about, but my wifes D2 came with 2.4.330

    Does this procedure still apply to this version?

    2.2 and 2.3 usually refer to major android versions.. If they are called
    2.2 Froyo and 2.3 Gingerbread then there is no ambiguity with that

    Verizon's versions are different (but very annoyingly similar) for whatever reason and in this case 2.4.330 is running Android 2.2 Froyo.

    This Article on Update 2.4.330 may help explain too.

    I am not sure about the specifics of your phone as far as this thread is concerned. Note that D2 and D2G do have some differences, so study up on your phone specifically. e.g. make sure you get the right .sbf

    Procedure, yes, SBFs, no. You'll have to find the right one.
