    As you guys might have noticed, there's actually been a little development for our phones lately (thanks guys). Due to that, I've decided to put together a info thread to help people out with how to "tinker" with their phones a little. If there's anything you think should be added, just let me know.

    As always, you should take care before doing any modifications to your phone. You can potentially cause a large amount of damage if you do not know what you're doing. The instructions here are NOT a fool-proof method. They are simply a short guide to help you get the most out of your phone. Enjoy!

    Installing OTA updates manually (root access not required):

    1) Download the appropriate file (2.3.3 Leaked Gingerbread or 3.8.7 Froyo Update )
    2) Name it update and place it on the root of your SD card
    3) Boot into recovery (Power+R+M)
    4) Press the @ symbol when you get Android + ! on the screen.
    5) Select to install update.zip from SD Card
    6) Reboot


    Enable USB Debugging and "Unknown Sources" Apps
    1) Menu > Settings > Applications > Enable Unknown Sources
    2) Menu > Settings > Applications > Development> Enable USB Debugging


    Root Droid Pro with SuperOneClick
    (Froyo)
    1) Download and unzip SuperOneClick
    2) Run the driver utility
    3) Enable USB debugging and plug in your phone
    4) Click root and let the program do its thing
    5) Reboot


    Root Droid Pro with Bionic method (Gingerbread)
    1) Download the file and extract.
    2) Connect your phone to your computer via USB charge-only mode.
    3) Run Motorola One Click Root
    4) Phone will reboot twice
    5) If it reboots to the bootloader, simply unplug, reboot the phone manually, then replug once its booted.


    Use ClockworkMod Recovery with your Droid Pro
    1) On your rooted phone, install the Droid 2 Boostrapper
    2) Open the application, press Bootstrap Recovery (allow in Superuser), then Reboot Recovery
    3) You will reboot into CWM, allowing you to create/restore backups and flash .zip files
    4) Be sure to note that some roms do not allow use of the Boostrapper. CM7, for instance, allows you to reboot to recovery via the power button. The bootstrapper will cause you to have to SBF with CM7.


    Installing a custom ROM or its update
    1) Boot into CWM via the Bootstrapper
    2) Select "Flash zip from SD Card"
    3) Select your zip file (from a custom ROM found in the Droid PRO Roms Section
    4) You will likely need to wipe data, system, cache, davlik or a combination. See the appropriate thread for details.


    Flashing stock SBF file via RSD Lite
    1) Download the SBF below and install RSD Lite (a Gingerbread link is in process)
    2) Install the drivers found in the zip file
    3) Boot your FULLY CHARGED phone to the bootloader (Power+Vol Up+Vol Down) while off.
    4) Start RSD Lite and plug in your phone
    5) Once it appears in the bottom window, press start
    6) DO NOT unplug your phone during this process

    Its the leaked version I believe as the new version is brand new and OTA

    if you want new gb just sbf to froyo and take all updates, this will put you on gb 2.3.3 system 4.6.8 with newest radio

    My wife is on the leaked Gingerbread build right now...will sbf'ing back to Froyo hurt anything? I'm almost thinking I should just leave it since she's upgrading in a month or two.

    I was on the the leaked version but sbf'd and took the current OTA update day before yesterday. To be honest, I can't tell a difference between the two from a day to day operation point of view. I have heard that the radio files and some other system files are different. If she is happy right now and upgrading in a month..."let sleeping dogs lie" as they say.

    I just got the Gingerbread OTA update last night, and frankly, I hate it. It doesn't run better or worse, but the UI is terrible (for me). I am looking for ways to get back to the pre-Gingerbread state of my phone, but unfortunately, a factory reset left with stuck with the ugly gingerbread, w/o most of my stuff. I'm pretty much illiterate when it comes to super-user issues with my phone. What are my options? I'm not opposed to rooting, but I don't know the first thing about it. Is there a way I can go back to the version I had two days ago, before the update? Is there something else I can do?

    I appreciate the help, because the UI on this phone will honestly drive me crazy.

    So you're talking about going through this process:

    So I need I would need to download the 3.8.7 SBF & RSD Lite on a PC, and then go thru this process? What exactly would be the state of my phone? Not rooted, but stock, pre-Gingerbread?

    Would rooting be a better option?

    I just want to get rid of the blue/white color scheme. For some reason, I find it highly annoying.
