    Search google for "linux cd sbf 2.3.340. You'll find a link to a linux boot image that is automated. Download, burn to cd, boot to cd, put phone in bootloader, plug in usb, choose option 1, and presto!! Stock Froyo in minutes. You'll be able to root and everything else again.

    Make sure you red the steps and use the number keys above the letters, not on the right.

    My DroidX Thrives on the DarkSlide!!

    I'd wait a week or so for the next update. If you root you'll just have to SBF back to Froyo for the next update. Unless you just want to SBF back twice in a week just stay unrooted for now.

    Just another case of not reading before making changes. Not extremely difficult to get out of the fix though.

    There is an update coming. Heard it was a baseband upgrade. Need to be on froyo to get it. At least until the flashable zip is released.

    Are you on the ota or rooted? If root, the zip will probably be out within a day or two of the official release.

    Well, guess you will have to sbf if you want the upgrade. Just curious, any specific reason you are keeping stock?

    Now that you are going to sbf anyway, why not just root froyo, and try the prerooted gb. I think they have given up on finding an exploit in the ota, since there are other options out there.
