    So, I bought a Droid X online that I knew couldn't load past the boot loader. I have another Droid X and have had this issue before, so I bought it thinking that it would be an easy fix. All I would have to do is SBF it back to stock and shazam! Not the case. I have tried everything that I can think of and need some help. I will start with what it currently does.

    When I boot it up, I get the red Motorola logo, then it goes straight into the boot loader and says:
    Bootloader
    30.04
    Battery OK
    OK to Program
    Connect USB
    Data Cable

    At first I decided to sbf. I tried using RSD Lite versions 4.7, 4.8, and 4.9 on my Vista PC, but also tried on Windows 7 and an XP virtual machine using 4.7. Always working on a fully charged battery. I have uninstalled all the drivers and reinstalled from USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA
    All attempts gave the same results. The sbf I was using was VRZ_MB810_4.5.596_1FF_01.sbf from https://sites.google.com/site/1kdsdroidx/home
    I tried redownloading the file from this site (since I know that it works and have used on my othe Droid X) also downloaded the same sbf from another forum.

    It builds the image, then pushes it to the phone. It gets to 99% of flashing the sbf and then reboots the phone saying "SW Update Complete" and it boots back into tbe bootloader. Then I get an error in RSD saying:
    Failed flashing process. Failed flashing process. Phone[0000]: Error switching phone to BP Pass through mode (0x70BE); phone connected
    At this point I pulled the battery, went into recovery, wiped data/factory reset and cleared the cache. When I reboot, it boots into the bootloader with the error from above.

    I have tried other sbf files like the 2.3.340. All of them the full sbf and not just the system. I tried copying my update.zip folder from my working Droid X to this one and updating it that way. It goes through and gets almost to the end (at updating radio image) and gives this error:
    assert failed: motorola.update_cdma_bp("/tmp/rdl.bin", "/tmp/bp.img")
    E:Error in /sdcard.update.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    I tried a couple update.zip files from other post, all with the same error. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    I gave that a go. Both in Ubuntu and through the bootable iso. Both went through and said the phone would reboot, which it did. Then back to the boot loader. One more thing to add. When I sbf the latest ota, I get the red Motorola symbol on boot, but still goes to the bootloader. The only thing different is that it will allow me to select a zip file on the sd card to try and install. When I do that, depending on the zip file, I get errors like:
    E:signature verification failed
    or
    E:failed to verify whole-file signature

    Never seen those before, but research on the internet seems to lead me toward the fact that it is a bad zip file or it has the wrong MD5. I tried several downloads for the current ota as well as the 2.3.340 zip. Still no dice.

    If the phone lets you select a zip to install, that's not the bootloader. That's stock recovery. From Stock Recovery, you'll want to do a wipe data/factory reset. After an SBF you almost always have to do that.

    Thanks Kasey, I guess I forgot that part, it is the stock recovery that will let me select a zip folder to install. That is where I am getting those errors. I do a factory reset and wipe data, but the sbf fails when trying to load. Getting that error:
    Failed flashing process. Failed flashing process. Phone[0000]: Error switching phone to BP Pass through mode (0x70BE); phone connected
