    Hey there, a friend of mine sold me his old droid 2, but he bootlooped it trying to install a rom.

    I looked on the sd card and it has nandroid backups
    just no clockwork mod.

    And it will bootloop, except holding x will get it into stock recovery.

    the problem is I cant flash a .sbf cause im missing the micro usb cord.
    Is there an update zip that can be flashed through the stock recovery that is E verified?
    any help would be great. TY

    There is a 2.3.20 ZIP out there, but it has to be installed in Bootstrap. Your only option at this point is to SBF, but you need a USB cord.

    There is an update.zip to update to GB over on RootzWiki, but I don't remember exactly where it's located.

    Here's a link to an update.zip that contains the OTA GB upgrade:
    Blur_Version.2.3.20.A955.Verizon.en.US.zip
    I got it from the CM4D2-GB post (step 2):
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/cyanogenmod-d2/167861-cm7-gingerbread-rom-cm4d2-gb-now-ready-prime-time.html

    I was able to use it to go from non-rooted stock Froyo to GB. Although, I'm not sure what state everything is in, so I don't know what that update would actually do (being that it could already be using the GB leak). You may want to try and find the previously mentioned zip...

    If you can get into stock recovery try wiping data and cache. May not help, but its worth a shot.
