    PS - that method should work for flashing any .sbf file... I've also used it to return to 2.0.1 to then get the 2.1 OTA update

    What are you trying to accomplish - just sprecovery?

    at what point is it saying fail, and what does your phone do?

    i guess a handful of things to check:
    - you installed the correct usb drivers per that tutorial?
    - is rsd seeing your phone correctly when it initially goes into the bootloader? (compare to that video)
    - already mentioned the file on the desktop thing...
    - have you tried re-downloading the .sbf file to make sure nothing was wrong with the file you're using?
    - using the usb cable that came with the droid?

    still thinking...

    same once you load the .sbf file (before you hit start) - check that as well

    i remember i had some weird error, and i can't remember what caused it, which makes saying this useless... but rsd didn't like my phone, nor did it like the sbf file and it was obvious from the wording in the rsd windows that it wasn't quite right

    What desktop/laptop OS are you running? You made sure you installed the right motorola usb drivers? The 32bit/64bit thing makes a difference. I also made sure I was running the right version of rsd - not sure if that makes a diff or not, but I used the link on that page.

    Is the current state of your Droid the stock 2.1?

    If you've double checked everything we've talked about, my only other suggestion is to try re-downloading the .sbf file and sticking it in your Documents folder or something off the desktop to see if that works. Here's a link to my .sbf file that I know works (again, though, I also got it off of that tutorial): https://www.sugarsync.com/pf/D894714_119591_603544 I'll leave that link enabled for a few if you want to try that.

    Other than all of that, someone smarter than me needs to hop in here...
