1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Okay, here we go. This is my first post but I have some experience with rooting, sbfing, roming, theming, blah blah blah. Anyway, I have a Droid 2 Global which I had picked up pretty cheap because the person didn't want it anymore as it's stuck in the bootloader screen. Easy fix right? I loaded up RSDlite 4.9, downloaded the sbf file - specifically for droid 2 global 2.4.29 AND for safe measure, I downloaded 2.4.33 as well.

    Every time I've attempted, it freaks out. Let me explain - Every post I've read in regards to the droid 2 global, what SHOULD happen is the phone should reboot and possibly go into a boot loop, which at that point, I should be able to go into the stock recovery screen by holding the "x" key and pushing power to wipe data/cache. However, it won't even go into the boot loop. When the phone reboots, there's no M logo, it just goes back into the bootloader screen - despite the fact that RSDlite states the flash is complete! The exact same thing happens when i tried to sbf the 2.4.33. I've uninstalled and reinstalled RSDLite, uninstalled 4.9 and went back to 4.8.. which I received some error message.. later to read that 4.8 won't work with the A956. So I uninstalled 4.8 and reinstalled 4.9. I uninstalled everything that says motorola, all drivers, so on and so forth, reinstalled... nothing.

    I did read someplace that I could try to sbf a different bootloader but the link which was posted was broken so I couldn't even get the file and even if the file was available, I'm not sure how to sbf a different bootloader to begin with.

    I've tried different USB cables, I've tried different USB ports, I'm out of ideas other than the fact I have a paperweight.

    So please please please, any help/feedback would be greatly appreciated!!
    Here's what I have:

    Motorola A956
    Windows 7 32-bit
    Motorola RSDlite v4.9
