    ok.....let's give this a shot. Keep in mind I haven't done this yet. From my understanding this is a system only SBF.....just thought I should mention it....but it's almost 500 MB so who knows.

    Remember....after SBF you still need to do factory reset.

    First....you need the drivers from Motorola....
    http://www.motorola.com/staticfiles/Support/Experiences/Global_Drivers/MotoHelper_2.0.49_Driver_5.0.0.exe

    Next you need RSD 5.0 (5.3.1)
    Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!

    Last you need the SBF file
    Download VRZ_MB870_DTN-14.8_1FF_01.sbf.gz for free on Filesonic.com

    You can also visit the below link to find RSD, Drivers, and SBF in one place as well
    DROIDX2 SBF (2.2.2) Available for Download - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog


    once you have those follow these steps

    1. Install Moto drivers

    2. Launch RSD Lite

    3. Put X2 into "RSD" (power up device holding volume down....once "Fastboot" appears release then tap volume down till you see "RSD"

    4. Plug in USB cable to computer and phone

    5. Hit volume up key once (RSD lite will then show your phone and you are ready)

    6. in RSD hit the "..." and navigate to SBF file....and select

    7. Click start

    8. after complete and X2 reboots, boot into recovery and perform factory reset.

    So any idea if this will actually succeed or just completely brick your phone?

    I can confirm that this does in fact work beautifully. I took the risk earlier today and the OP is absolutely correct in everything he/she has said.

    My website, Player Affinity will be launching a mobile section with a download system. We will be adding this file to download in the next week or two along with any updated files down the road for the X2 and Bionic once it's released. This means that you will be able to download it without a bandwidth cap and without waiting.

    Sorry to hijack the thread there, just wanted to make sure everyone would know this file will have a permanent home soon.

    Advice/Help

    So... I tried to use RSD initially to put my phone back to stock 2.2 so I could update to official Gingerbread. One problem - when I went through the process I used the sbf and tutorial for the Droid X - not the X2 which was shipped to me without my knowledge as a replacement. So I thought I was just having some minor problems but the now the issue seems much bigger to me. Anyway, I tried the linux method - booting from USB but that gave me an error regaridng somehting about ramdisk... so now I'm stuck in the bootloader :icon_eek: I was going to try this method to fix - but the site w/ the sbf file - filesonic - only allows 400mb DL's so it stops halfway thru... anyone have suggesstions for my situation? Should I just wait until the ISO is released for the X2?

    If you have an X2 now, then go through the steps to flash it with the X2 SBF... Look around for another source... I downloaded it just fine.

    hmm so could you open the system files, add notification ringtones, then flash it and the ringtones would show up on the X2 without needing to be rooted? all the text tones are annoying.

    This is just the backup file for your current system file install. In case you break something. Look for the initials OTA for our next update, which will hopefully be 2.3.3 and not just 2.2.3.

    I think step 5 may be the power button. If you rock the volume it scrolls the menu. It may read your phone but your phone isn't in rsd mode.

    Im not sure because I've never rsded but I've read alot and I have messed with the fastboot menu a little bit and that's my guess. I could be wrong.

    I am an idiot, while in recovery the sd internal and external got wiped after I had done a data wipe. RSDlite fails to flash the sbf to my phone. Please help.
