    Where'd you see that post on XDA?

    R2D2 is the same HW as the standard D2...if he really bricked his Droid (and I've only ever heard of developers futzing around bricking anything), I'd initially be much more suspect of something not being done right, or other issues, than the SBF not being compatible. I'd like to read more about it.

    Yeah, I found it.

    I would not set that as fact w/out more info...it is good to caution people about it so folks are cautious, but one post does not necessarily indicate there is a problem w/the SBF on the R2D2 yet. Who knows if this person knew what they were doing, or made an operator error while SBF-ing, etc.

    I'm asking some questions on the thread over there to get more info...

    Sorry for causing unnecessary alarm. I just always want a sure backup plan in case of disaster when trying new, untested things.
    And yeah, I noticed the person seemed a bit discombobulated. Hopefully you can help shed some light on that.

    I'm the dude who made that post.

    What info would you like about the brickage?

    I used RSDlite 4.7. the flash get to the reboot point and then got a bootloader error that said "bootloader err:A5,70,70,00,1f". I found this was the same error that DroidX users who OTA'd to their 2.2 update and then tried to SBF back to 2.1.

    I just tried it again. It hangs on the part that says..

    Adb connection will be reset...
    Then 5 minutes later it comes back and says this...
    Could not kill pid 8124: no such process

    I had that error, too. I wish I knew what was different when I got it to work, but I don't remember anything being different. I just tried it later after restarting my computer, and it suddenly worked.

    Hmmmm I copied the Files into the tools folder again and tried it a third time...
    It gets a little further and says it loss daemon successfully then checking for device...

    It then comes back and says boot failed would you like to retry y or n

    Ok finally got it to work on try#5.
    Unplugged phone, rebooted phone, rebooted computer, plugged in phone, started the program and voila! Root with no errors!

    Couldn't have done it without u! Thank you for giving me the confidence to keep trying :)

    Now I need to figure out how to install a stealthy way of forwarding my gf's text messages to my email.
    (i know its morally questionable but she's been hiding stuff from me and it had me worried.. That's why I bought her a phone on my plan.) ;)

    Anyone know how I can turn r2d2 into a rebel spy? ;)
