    Does anybody know if ESE81 (2.1 SP Recovery SBF - DroidMod) release will work on the Droid X? Just want to make sure it won't brick it.

    Thanks!

    It will do one of 2 things.

    1. Nothing
    2. Brick the phone

    I don't see it doing anything else. My bet is on "nothing", but I wouldn't bet my Droid X on it.

    I suppose it depends on how rsd lite works. If it wipes all content first then goes to apply something that won't fit quite right on the phone I'd lean towards the bricking option.

    Find someone who has it or possibly do a factory reset and see if it comes back. The thread title probably should read what the problem is, so folks can offer a solution too ;)

    Factory reset doesn't do it :(

    Should I be able to simply put the .apk file in my /system/apps folder?

    Sounds like a good way to create a paperweight.

    Earlier that wasn't there, glad to see it added in. Having a way back is always a good thing:)

    Someone else recommended renaming apk's instead of deleting them, just in case you change your mind.

    Thanks guys, I'll try to avoid such a noob mistake next time. Seems like I always learn the hard way with these things.

    Well looks like I had all the .apk files so that didn't work :(

    Does anyone have the com.motorola.... files associated with contacts that I could have?

    Thanks!
