    Made a dumb mistake while trying to flash Liberty Rom 0.7 on a D2. I assumed that when it said it was a gingerbread ROM that it was based off of Gingerbread and not that it required my phone to already have Gingerbread on it. So like a moron who knows just enough to get himself in trouble, I rooted like I had in the past.

    Went through all the precautionary steps -

    1.)Used the Droid 2 Bootstrap Recovery

    2.)Phone Booting into Clockwork -
    3.)Made a backup
    4.)Wiped the Cache
    5.)Wiped the Data/Factory Reset
    6.) Wiped Battery Stats
    7.) Wiped Dalvik Cache
    8.) Mounted /Data and /system

    Then proceeded to install the .zip file for Liberty I downloaded.

    Everything installed fine and then when I went to reboot after the intall, the Yellow circle with the fist comes up and nothing else happens. Clearly this was stupid. But now I can't figure out how to load the backup. I tried to book into recovery mode, but clockwork and nandroid don't show up, its only the factory recovery mode.

    Please help. Thanks.

    Thanks. I'm downloading RSDLite and SPRecovery. I found some SBF directions that tell me to do the following..

    Connect your phone to the PC via USB and turn it off then while your phone is booting hold up on the DPAD.
    Run RSD Lite 4.6 as Administrator (For all you Vista and 7 folks out there. If you are using XP you may not need to run as Administrator)
    If your phone is not displayed in the "model" column you may need to do the following:
    Select the "config" option from the upper left corner of the tool
    Select DeviceId Options
    Select one of the two options available. By default neither are chosen, and my phone shows up fine with neither one selected.
    Click the [...] next to the filename box and browse to where you saved the .sbf file you want to use and double click the .sbf file.
    Hit start and below it should give you completion progress.
    Your phone will reboot and you will be on a stock 2.01 phone with no root installed.

    So that's what I'm going to try unless anyone has a better suggestions.

    Does anyone know what it means when it says to

    " go to.... http://rescue.macleod-web.net > navigate to the sbf folder and download the FRG22D.sbf file."

    I assume that will be different for the droid 2, no?

    I've pulled the battery 10 times. Each time I'll reboot while holding POWER and X button. Clockwork never comes up. The only thing that comes up are the regular recovery options and I wiped the Factory Data again and the Cache, I even tried to apply the update.zip on the sd card. But since those are the only 3 options other than reboot, I can't think of anything else to do.

    How did you get into bootstrap recovery?

    don't hold anything,, let it start booting, pull the battery. repeat until you see bootstrap recovery.. doesn't require any buttons.. took me 3-5 times each time I had to do it.

    Also, install the monster_2.3.2_4.5.153_updater_Rooted.zip from recovery, then hit recovery again and flash .8 and you'll be good (that's how I did it from Liberty Froyo)

    I tried to use D2-2320-Deodexed.zip but it put me on 2.2.3 with blur (so I thought it was 2.3) and I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't load Liberty GB for the life of me.

    Okay. Thanks to you guys I got my phone into clockwork (pulling the battery 6 times) and got it to recover.

    I'm going to follow the instructions to put gingerbread on the phone and then go from there. Thanks for all your help.

    Based off of the directions on the website, it would seem I have a lot more steps to do than what you propose here. Are you saying that I can skip these steps?:

    1. Download the file from above and drop it on your SD card.
    2. Download the 2.3.20 SBF file for the DX. [Here]
    3. Download, install and open RSD lite 4.8. [Here]
    4. Plug your phone into your Windows PC and turn your phone off.
    5. Boot into the bootloader by holding Power + Up Arrow.
    6. Your computer will likely install new drivers at this point.
    7. Once RSD lite recognizes your phone, hit the “…” box and choose the 2.3.20 SBF file.
    8. Click “Start.”
    9. When it finishes and gets to 100%, power your phone off.
    10. Boot into recovery by holding Home + X.
    11. When the triangle appears, hit both Volume Up and Down at the same time.
    12. Navigate down to wipe data/factory reset, select it with camera, say “yes.”
    13. When it finishes, reboot your phone.

    Keep these info for future references for yourself....

    From this site that shows you how to root (for Froyo), how to SBF back to stock, and various other useful tips.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-2-hacks/91760-droid-2-hacking-rom-install-class.html

    Correct way to SBF back to Froyo stock....

    Prerequisite: Must have the rsdlite program set up


    Step 1: Boot into the bootloader, you do this by powering on and holding the physical up button on your keyboard. You should see a black screen with text that says battery: OK

    Step 2: Plug is your usb cord into the computer you loaded the rsdlite file on

    Step 3: Click on your rsdlite program. You need to run as an administrator, to do that hold shift key and right click on the rsdlite program (do that as you are about to open the program). Thanks Firesong3k for reminding me about that.

    Step 4: Next to the file name text box in the rsdlite program are three little dots. Click on those dots and find the file Click on that file and then click start. Make sure you have a strong battery before flashing this is the one time you need to ensure your battery is ok to get through the process, because the program erases everything and re-flashes your phone.

    Step 5: Wait for it to get to 100% and reboot your phone to the motorola "M" symbol first then unplug your device. While at the M take off the battery cover out and remove your battery. Wait for about 3 seconds and then reinstall your battery. Power on and hold the physical X key until you get to the triangle and !.

    Step 6: on your physical keyboard push the search button to get into the recovery mode. From there you are going to wipe data/factory reset. AFter that is complete click reboot.

    Once you SBF'ed back to stock do this...

    Get that Monster zip file (containing the rooted GB leak) place it on the root of your SD Card.

    Back up all your apps and data (data is up to you if you only want selective data such as text, email, contact infos, etc).

    Flash into recovery

    Wipe data and cache

    Flash Monster zip (containing the rooted GB leak)

    Reboot

    Activate phone and go through the rest of that stuff

    Check and make sure everything went smoothly, apps all came over from being reinstalled from the Market, etc

    Make sure D2 Bootstrap is reinstalled and Liberty Toolbox Donated reinstalled

    Download .07 or .08

    You can either allow toolbox to install it or put it on queue when finished so you can install it manually through Recovery like ldopa and I and others do (safer to do it manually so we can control all that is going on and the installer doesn't mess up on us.

    Repeat for wipe data and cache if you plan on manually installing it through Recovery.
