    please be patient as i plan on getting into a lot of detail with results from using this file.

    the phone situation...new not refurb Droid X, running 2.3.340 OTA, rooted with no rom, stock if you will. was using the wifi tether and TBH 3g hack, also had the rummX boot logo left over from 2.3.15.

    the issue...phone would reboot no less than 15 times per day. unlocking the phone, turning it sideways, these things would trigger a reboot. i have been following this thread so i requested a beta copy of the OTA zip file from mader, he was nice enough to give me a copy.

    the results...file was loaded through bootstrap, just like you would a rom or theme. it literally finished going through its processes in about 5-7 minutes. first thing i noticed was the "M" logo come up, that took a bit of time, then the word "droid", then the magic red eye and the slight vibration, all good news if you have ever loaded a rom or theme. then the phone sliders and the same wallpaper were visible. slid the unlock slider and all appeared to be exactly as i left it. same number of screens, all icons were in the same place, nothing appeared to have moved. even the super ninja icon was there but was different in appearance. i went to terminal and typed "su" and got the message, superuser permissions denied...went to bootstrap, also got the error, went to root explorer and could not access system files. I did have to reprogam the phone as it would not make any calls...a simple *228, option #1 and a few minutes later was good to go. all missed texts, emails and missed calls came in after that. 2 hours later and not one single reboot.

    conclusion...THIS FILE WORKS AS ADVERTISED, BACK TO COMPLETE STOCK WITH NO ROOT ACCESS AND NO ILL EFFECTS!!!!

    Worked Great on my DX thanks a Ton

    And I noticed that about the file as well the two times I tried to DL right from the phone it didnt like it only showed as a 19.1KB file size, DL from the PC and it was the 284MB Size.

    Thanks for the work :)

    and below is 100% correct.

    Can we use this as a .sbf if we are on .340 already?

    Try the battery pull, then rebooting but hold down the home button and the power button that should bring you to the picture of the droid and exclamation point press the search button and that should boot you in to recovery. And reboot from there.

    this is now open to the public and no longer in beta stage.

    mrmooney excluded I've had no one else have trouble flashing the file. sorry to hear it didn't work for you moon. I'd recommend going over to my sbf thread and seeing if you can get the sbf to flash with the linux tool sbf_flash.

    besides, I'm handing out this file like hot cakes anyway - my inbox can't keep up with it.

    If my current rom has .340 and I want to go back to stock, will this do that for me?
