    Trying to revert back to 2.1 from 2.2 using RSD Lite, followed all the directions, however, get this error:

    Failed flashing process. Failed Flashing Process. (0x7100); phone connected

    Please help :)

    From this link:

    Droid X

    Windows Instructions:

    1. Download RSD Lite (credit to MyDroidWorld)
    2. Install the RSDLite 4.7 program by double clicking on the program.
    3. Move the pst_flash.ini file into the following folder --> Program Files/Motorola/RSDLite
    4. Install the drivers that apply to your Operating System.
    5. Unzip the SBF into a folder. (Download Above)
    6. Open RSD Lite and find the UNZIPPED SBF
    7. Put your Motorola Droid X into bootloader. (turn phone off and hold volume down and the camera button while pressing the power button)
    8. Click start and sit back.

    Note: after the flash will need to boot into recovery (hold volume down and the home button) and wipe data and cache.

    Thanks so much for the help!! :)

    Not sure if this helps, but I use Win 7 with RSD, but run RSD as Admin...

    Added: When reverting from 2.2 back to 2.1 I recommend doing a wipe/erase cache first... then put the phone in to bootloader mode. If you don't after it flashes, and reboots phone, it seems to hang, then you have to pull the batt. then boot in to recovery and wipe/erase. --> Thats my experience anyway.
