    Google search here on the forums for "Droid x SBF Droid forums". Had a new user with the same problem and he said the instructions were super easy to follow. Let me know if you need further help. Good luck!

    Sorry more questions?

    So I need to make a backup of bootstrap? I have bootstap on my phone but don't know how to make a backup. I read the Koush's Droid X Bootstrapper but I didn't see anything about a backup. Can I follow the instructions in your last post of step number 5 and not make a backup? I wish there was a step 1, 2, 3, etc that was available it would be so much easier for me to understand.

    if you're trying to get completely back to stock with no root then the easiest way would be to just use z4root to unroot your phone however if you've used the bootstrap especially to flash a rom then that isn't going to really get rid of all traces of root. i may have gotten ahead of myself. what is the reason you need the phone back to stock?

    It keeps freezing up I have to take out my battery up to 6 times a day. The first time I take it out is because it goes straight to clockwork mod recovery v2.5.0.6 I am going to send my phone in to verizon and don't want any trace of root. This friend had all the stuff on his computer then won't change it back for me now. I hooked up a different phone on my line because the DX kept freezing.

    then i would take abe's advice and flash the madderstock zip. it's very easy and you just have to flash it in clockwor. it will bring you to a complete out of the box state.

    it doesn't need to be hooked up to the network in order to flash that file. if it can be booted up and then booted in to clockwork recover from the bootstrap app then you just need to place the .zip on the sd card.

    follow the instructions from this thread

    maderstcok - OTA 2.3.340 update.zip

    if that doesn't work for some reason then we can move on to sbf flashing but i don't think you'll need to.

    you don't really need to make a backup. especially considering that you wouldn't want to restore the phone in this state.

    How do I get it on my sd card I thought I had it in the right place but don't see it after following the steps in clockwork.
