    I have a rooted droid x (rooted with visionary+) and I did the ota this morning and now it is just stuck on the "M" and will not go any further. I have waited for about 30 minutes and nothing has happened. I think I might have a new paper weight so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    New Full SBF for Droid X - 2.3.340

    your going to have to boot into the bootloader since you won't be able to put your phone in PC mode. Press and hold BOTH volume buttons then press the power button until you see a quick flash, let up on the buttons and you will be in the bootloader. From there you flash the sbf file.

    ***special note*** do not put your phone into the bootloader until you are ready to flash the SBF as your phone will not charge in the bootloader. Also its a good idea to pull the battery now becuase if your battery get too low it will not allow you to flash the sbf file either.

    I hope you get that figured out, man!

    You have to be stock, unrooted to accept the OTA update.

    +1 for stock and unrooted!
    The upgrade for me went so smoothly, it brought a tear of joy to my eye :)
    Verizon is cooler than I thought...

    If you SBF back to froyo .340, you can just install the two-part file for the rooted version of .596. That way you get GB... AND ROOT!

    Do I do what CD95YJ said to do so I can actually turn my phone on and then reroot my phone? Where do I get the file for the rooted version of .596? Would like to stay rooted because I use the wifi tethering, but don't want anything else to happen to my phone like it did this morning. The more details the better. Very new to this whole rooting thing. Thanks.

    Do you pay for the tethering app? .596 (GB) stopped the ability to free tether as it auto launches the 3G hotspot app along with what ever tether app your using, it then eventually takes you to the "you need to pay for this service" page, so free tethering is kind of a thing of the past right now on .596, even the rooted files from TBH.

    Oh yes, sorry I missed the tethering part. If you want tether, skip GB for awhile.

    Thanks for the file, but my initial problem still exists. I CANNOT turn my phone on. I tried to do what CD95YJ said to do. I downloaded the files necessary to do the sbf but then when I turned my phone on in the bootloader and attached it to my computer via USB, it will not find the necessary software to load my phone. It says this, "Windows unable to install your S flash OMAP3630 MI Could not find driver software."

    I will have to move aside to let others help with that then. I'm not sure. The phone does not turn on at all, have you tried pulling the battery?

    Yes I've pulled the battery and then when I restart I just get the motorola m. I have let it sit for up to 30 minutes and it won't go any further.

    If you haven't tried yet boot into stock recovery by holding home button and powering phone on and wipe data/ cache
