    Sweet! A fellow Husker!

    Can I get a good link to Froyo 2.2.1 please. SBF'ing on Win 7 32-bit is something I haven't had luck with yet.

    Back when you were trying to SBF, you were putting your phone into bootloader mode before connecting it to the computer corrrect? I have SBF'd 3 times on a Win7 32 bit since this weekend, with no issues (I used RSD Lite 4.9).

    Good point CJ. I am fortunate enough to have an XP Pro, Vista, and a Win 7 machine

    Yes you should use the Linux method or the regular ole SBF with RSD Lite method if you are trying to go to Rooted GB . Then install the pre-rooted GB from p3droid over at mydroid world (*Note, this is not an actual SBF file, just saying, I'd rather tell you now than get flamed later).

    I doubt Honeycomb will ever come to Phones, it was built for Tablets. Now we might eventually get some Ice Cream Sandwich, if the rumors are true. This should be the next Android OS, and it is supposed to be compatible with phones & tablets. GB was probably the last major update the DX will see though.

    Okay I'm going to ask which is probably another dumb question.

    What is the difference between:

    • Deodexed Version
    • Odexed Version
    • Patched Update
    • Full Stock Version
    On this....

    That could be the case... last time I'm asking... did make sure and put your phone into bootloader mode? You weren't just plugging it in while it was it was on and you had RSD lite open, correct?

    Yeah I thought I had answered you prior, but I was in bootloader mode.

    To keep it simple, if a rom is deodexed, you are able to apply themes
    Odexed I believe takes up less memory but you can't flash themes with it.
    FULL stock I think is an update.zip that you can flash in stock recovery

    Deodexed Version is what you need if you want to install Themes and such. It can be customized and themed easier. The only downside is that when you wipe your dalvik cahe, the next time you boot your phone, it can take a little while longer.

    Odexed Version is where everything is packed up nice and tight, but can't be themed easily.

    Patched update is the Rooted Version of GB.

    Full Stock Version is the OTA GB. The one that is not rooted yet, or possibly ever.

    Thanks man. Full stock will be handy for future updates obviously. I may give it a whirl tonight now that I'm a lot more familiar with this stuff.

    Nice... that was going to be my next suggestion. Question, did you happen to make a backup of bone stock rooted GB? If so, now if you want to ever try out another ROM or need to accept a new OTA, you can just restore your backup and not have to mess with the SBF. If not, it is ok, b/c now you know the process...

    I have bookmarked that one guy's stock GB (from the same page that I got that two-part install). You're right about the process...I know it pretty well now :)

    That's what I did....I created a Linux bootdisk to help me get into stock froyo because sbf'ing through windows wouldn't work for me. From there I rooted, went to GB, then went to Liberty v0.7.

    By the way, it's OK if you didn't make a backup of stock gb, before flashing liberty. If you want to try another rom, just wipe data and flash. I do it all the time
