    I was attempting to sbf to install gingerbread hoping I would catch the ota.Here is the process RSD is going through :

    1. Phone (0000) Creating Image File
    2. Reboot
    3. Phone (0000) Interface AP-OS Flashing code group (group numbers ascending till it gets to group 65
    4. Reboot
    5. Switching device to BP pass through mode while rebooting
    6. Interface BP Flashing Code group 5
    7. Reboot
    8. Phone is being rebooted (at which point always says Executed 26% then immediate 100 and PASS is on screen, phone still has Failed to Boot 4 Starting RSD mode

    Everything except the last portion looks right. Something is going wrong at the end.

    Just to be clear you are 100% sure you have the correct sbf file? If so...

    My best suggestion for you at this point is try linux. If you don't have it don't worry you can get it free and you don't even need to install it, you can run it from a disc or usb drive.

    Grab ubuntu and make a disc/usb drive and boot it up. Open up konsole and type "sbf_flash <location of sbf file>" (with no quotes) at the same point you'd click start in RSDlite. No drivers needed or anything, linux is cool like that, just one command does it.

    I downloaded the file three different times from these forums and xda , the sbf Im flashing is VRZ_MB870_DTN-14.8_1FF_01.sbf. I can try the linux route although Im not really sure what I'm doing with it I will follow your instructions and see what I can try , thank you.

    That's the correct file alright.

    I've been awake for nearly 40 hours so sorry about my lack of detailed instructions but, if you head over to droidx forums I'm almost 100% sure there is a detailed write up about using linux to flash the x, so I'd poke around there if you feel like more information would help you.

    It looks pretty straightforward , they pretty much made it idiotproof with a walkthrough on Ubuntu's website . Hoping this works!!

    Dude cool it on the insults because that is not true for all PCs. . Some PCs use cheap USB ports on the front that are not upto USB specs. IT causes errors. And some are fine. So it is a valid warning. I've been building and repairing PCs for 16 years and have seen this often. Mostly on white box systems but even name brand units by Dell or HP.

    Ok, so I believe I'm making some headway , I got down the basics of it and put sbf flash and the sbf on the desktop and its giving me this error :

    ubuntu@ubuntu:~/Desktop$ chmod +x sbf_flash
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~/Desktop$ ./VRZ_MB870_DTN-14.8_1FF_01.sbf
    bash: ./VRZ_MB870_DTN-14.8_1FF_01.sbf: Permission denied



    I tried messing around with the permissions of the file and I got this error

    ubuntu@ubuntu:~/Desktop$ chmod +x sbf_flash
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~/Desktop$ ./VRZ_MB870_DTN-14.8_1FF_01.sbf
    bash: ./VRZ_MB870_DTN-14.8_1FF_01.sbf: cannot execute binary file

    Okay, what you need to do is enter this:

    ./sbf_flash <filename>

    ./ is like telling the computer to run something, so ./sbf_flash is running sbf_flash. Putting the filename after is telling sbf_flash what to use.

    What you did was tell the computer to run a file as a program, which can't be done.

    Get it?

    Also you only need to run the chmod line once, that's changing the permission of sbf_flash to executable, so doing it more than once is pointless.
