    I think I really messed up here.

    I installed Metamorph and BusyBox (both free versions) and I downloaded some icons from DroidPirate. I went and changed two icons, my ADB icon and my Battery icon to Gingerbread Blue and after the restart on the battery icon, my notification bar disappeared. I could not for the life of me get it back, I did a full power off, a battery pull, and here's where the panic and stupid induced part came in, I went into the recovery settings and did a data/cache wipe (Stupid, Stupid, Stupid...).

    After that I was still rooted, but still had no notification bar. :blink:

    Im starting to panic a little bit more now, I am currently in the process of hunting down a stock sbf file to...well, sbf back to stock and start fresh again. Would SBF-ing my D2G fix my notification bar problem?

    =================================
    EDIT:

    SBF didnt work, here's what I got:

    You're using the wrong SBF file. The one you have is for the regular Droid 2; you need the D2Global SBF.

    Wow...that's really stupid. Every thread I went to said that those files were for the D2G....

    Then my next question would be; could you post a link to the correct sbf file?

    =========================================
    EDIT:

    According to this [link] I need to be in PC mode to SBF correctly. and because my notification bar is gone, I cant get it to PC mode, its default is USB Mass Storage mode. Is their any other way I can switch to PC mode?

    When I SBF I always do it from Bootloader, so there's no switching of USB mode anyway. I'd recommend you do it that way, starting with the phone off and powering on into Bootloader. You will see fewer issues.

    That's what I have been doing and what I did in that picture.

    Also could you send me a link to the correct SBF file, because I can't seem to find the right one

    I used both those guides and it gave me the same result...

    I have three different SBF versions:

    VRZ_A955_2.3.20_1FF_01.sbf
    VRZ_A956_4.5.608_1FF_01.sbf
    VRZ_A956_2.4.33_1FF_01.sbf

    I have tried all of these using RSDLite v4.9 & v5.6 and they all give me the same result.

    Do you have the proper Motorola drivers installed?

    I got my drivers from [here] I downloaded MotoHelper and I wasn't sure which other driver I was to download, PC Driver 1 or 2?

    ========================
    EDIT:

    Both the PC Drivers 1 & 2 are useless? Driver 1 just gives me an .inf file and Driver 2 gives me a folder which of bunch of nonsense... unless I'm supposed to use these files somehow?

    Yeah, I had an issue doing a reinstall of the drivers before too. Glad it's working for you now.
