    There is some misinformation running around about this and people jumping to conclusion that this is Motorola locking down the system. This is wrong. Read what Motorola posts and you will see that they are actually letting you know ahead of time about the issue and telling you that flashing back to a prior release will allow you to upgrade.

    Here is Linux on your PC without changing your hard drive contents:

    Knoppix Linux Boot CD, Download Disk and Documents, Discuss, Get Help

    Now you can use the sbf_flash no matter your OS.

    I'll keep my 2.2 until this weekend. I'd bet half a goat (if only i could find my knife...) the official 2.2 is coming out around Sept. 6. You should still be able to flash back to 2.1 after that and manually check for update from settings.

    If you go back to 2.1, you lose everything, right? Is there any chance there will be a way to upgrade to the official 2.2 without having to to a factory reset?

    This is really pretty sad considering that, since loading 2.2, I've gotten fewer FCs, almost 2 day battery life, and effectively, pure DroidX happiness.

    Personally, I'm not flashing back to stock until I *have* to...or are they saying they're going to track who loaded 2.2 and then deny the upgrade even if it's been flashed back to stock?

    /\ /\ /\ same here... I have no issues, and unless they include something in the official update that I desperately need, I won't go back to 2.1 to then update again to 2.2 since I have 0 issues with it.

    If I understand this correctly, I would lose everything by going back to 2.1, correct?

    Also, can't we update manually from 2.2 leak to 2.2 official if someone uploads the official file?

    That would depend. I don't think you can use update.zip to reload a same version OS, so I'm guess Motorola was saying that your phone won't see official 2.2 as a valid "update" to leaked 2.2.

    This implies that that you won't be able to update from leak 2.2 to official 2.2 without a full flash... meaning you'd lose everything, unfortunately. :icon_eek:

    I'm staying on the leaked version less moto gives me a reason to move (IE better features, better battery life, or possibly punting 2.2 leak users)
    and if they decide to go the last route. I will start a suit, I wouldn't be the only one. Moto would be back to being broke faster than you can say SLVR.

    I feel like you would be able to do a work around without having to flash back to 2.1 by doing an update.zip, but my understanding of operating systems is kind of poor. Does anyone have any opinions?
