    Everyone that has any ideas, thoughts, any information really on how we might be able to come up with the sbf file for our droids post it all here. What I know isn't quite enough to find it and obviously no one knows enough or we would have it LOL. But maybe if everyone knows what you know someone will be able to piece it all together.

    If you dont know what is so important about this file that everyone wants have a look at THIS and maybe it will show just how important it is to the community that we get this.

    The thread you linked to in your OP didn't mention sbf anywhere? Or am I missing something entirely?

    The point is to find a Droid sbf, not the milestone one. The milestone version is widely available.

    Maybe the Milestone would work on the Droid after a few tweeks.....since it is essentially the same phone

    If he wants the sbf for recovery of bricked phoned the milestonne would be fine...unbrick, flash recovery, push a nandroid, restore a nandroid. Just my two cents.

    Or bribe a verizon employee for a copy.

    This was what the Sholes Team was looking for as well.

    The milestone sbf has been around for a while now, and yet the devs over at sholes have specifically said they are looking for a Droid version, leads me to believe that it won't work.
    Or it could be because of the changes done to the Milestone recently.
    SemiAccurate :: Motorola locks down Android
    Pretty sad news, and here's hoping they don't try that in the US.

    Oh I know.... :(

    If they do that to the Droid, I will be more than disappointed.......might as well go get an iPhone and jailbreak it if they do the Droid that way :(

    Nah, i've got root and ota's disabled, so i'm not worried. People that aren't though, could lose all freedom for sure if they pulled this here.

    Sorry if I'm a little dense, but what is an 'sbf' file? What does it contain?

    Yep....I hope they don't do us that way....

    I seen a post a while back that mentioned something about the 2.1 update may not be able to be exploited and develop a way to root it.....and that kind of worried me....cause I mean what if they made it that way? There's no reason why they couldn't...you know?

    The Milestone development is a bit disturbing. And the problem with thinking that well it won't affect me if the Droid goes this way because I am already rooted is that it could indirectly affect us on the development front. If the pool of rootable phone does not keep increasing, I am guessing that perhaps there will be less incentive for Dev's to get involved. Especially new ones. Perhaps the same could be said for app development, certainly apps that require root.

    I guess this could be tempered by arguments about the longevity of the phone, i.e. in two years there will be no Droids sold as everyone will have the latest whatever in that time frame, the bigger picture of Open Source is at play here, and could be down the road with new devices. I am a big proponent of companies doing whatever they want without fear of lawsuit or government intervention, but to sell a phone and advertise Android, aka open source, then block the very foundation is a bit wrong. About like marketing a car capable of 200 mph, then installing a governor that cannot be replaced that limits speeds to 55mph.

    Ya I agree with you Craig, while it won't effect my phone, it could drastically alter the incentive for the rooted droid devs to continue if this happened.
    Sad day to see an open-source phone treated this way, guess this will be my first and last motorola phone if they continue down this path.

    Just means I'll move to the Nexus One if they do this

    I love that Google gave you the option to unlock the bootloader out of box (albeit with standard warranty implications, etc)
