    Hi, I've been viewing the forums for a while now just never posted.

    I have a non-rooted 2.2 (leaked) Droid X and and am trying to flash back to 2.1. I have the sbf file and all the components. When I'm in RSD Lite and try to make it start it fails immediately. I did make sure to move the .ini file into the HD file.

    Do I need to be rooted for this to work or anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

    I didn't, but I just went and enabled it and still no change.

    I don't know if this matters but when I load the sbf file into RSD Lite there's nothing in the file properties, does this matter?

    Yes it does there should be some information in there on the file. Where did you find said sbf?

    I got it from the link on Droid-Life that explains how to flash back. If you know of one that for sure works please pm me.

    I got it to work, I thought just because I was administrator RSD would automatically run as an administrator. When I right clicked it and selected Run as admin it worked. Thanks for all the help and sorry being a little dumb!
