    I have searched and searched and all the directions I find for SBFing a stuck Droid 2 seem a bit jumbled and confusing. Is there a clear and easy to follow process anywhere that you might recommend?

    I have looked there, it is unclear weather I need to use the "system only SBF File" or the "full SBF File"

    I have seen recommendations to use RSD lite 4.7, 4.7 with patch, 4.8 (recommended in thread), 4.9...ect.

    Not clear to me what exactly I need to do?

    Where might I find the RSD lite 4.9 download? I can only seem to find 4.8 and 4.7 with patch. The one I find is an RAR file and my computer doesn't want to open it.

    I found the 4.9 Zip and was able to get it loaded properly. I am now waiting for the Complete System file to finish downloading. Do I need to re-name anything prior to running?

    Alright, I have been trying to get this done for about 4 hours now and am losing my patience. I have finally gotten all the necessary files downloaded and now, when I open RSD Lite 4.9 it will not recognize the SBF file.

    I put the SBF File on my desktop and renamed it FullSBF. When I open RSD Lite and click the "..." tab to find the SBF it acts like there is no files anywhere. I uninstalled and re-installed RSD 4.9 thinking something may have gone wrong but, same deal. I have about 3 more hours to get this done or I am SOL until next week so any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

    You don't need to rename the sbf if the file doesnt have the .sbf at the end, rsd won't recognize it. If its in
    .txt format you downloaded the wrong one.

    Thank You! That was the problem, I forgot to put the .(dot) before the sbf. Did that, ran the program and it looks like I am back on track.

    Yeah, it's never a great idea to rename files. The sbfs i've dl are either dot sbf or dot zip (in which case ill extract the file to my desktop) works everytime. Glad you're up and running though
