    phone will not except .sbf after rooting failure

    So last night I used Z4 root to root the d2. Root went well everything was working right until i tried to install a theme from liberty. I went to reboot after theme installed phone froze at start up screen. So I got to reboot screen then did factory reset and wipe. Since then phone will not do anything I have tried to flash rom with sbf from rsd lite it executes then says fail. Its almost like it doesnt recognize my phone, also tried to unzip from sd card and it says no files found. Thanks in advance and any help would be appreciated

    I feel your pain. I have the same thing right now. I went with the super on click a couple weeks ago and everything was fine until I tried the liberty ROM "mysterious beast".

    K, you don't unzip anything and you don't flash a Rom with RSD you flash .sbf files.

    Did you install RSDlite and the correct drivers for your PC, 32/64 bit?

    Try using this: TBH & MyDroidWorld Present: Droid 2 (2.3.20) Triple Threat

    I've successfully sbf'd 3 times using this method back to stock 2.2 It was only when I tried using another sbf that I had problems. This should bring you back to stock 2.2 version2.3.2

    Don't forget to install the drivers.

    I have this problem too, where it starts the SBF process then immediately stops and says "FAIL"...only thing is I tried to SBF prior to this and it showed "100% Successful" but it stays stuck in a bootloop, on the red M....now it wont take the SBF files I've tried...RSD doesn't recognize the other SBF files when I select them...(the start button isnt active)....Can I get out of this???

    One thing to do is get winrar or something similar and verify the archive, generally if mine fails its either a fluke or a bad sbf...
