    Hey all, I am trying to unroot and wipe an old D2G that is having a hardware issue. It is currently UNactivated and when I plug it in and SBF the thing, it goes through its process and then boots up as if I didn't even try to SBF it - RSD does not mention any issues/errors during the process. Any ideas here? Does it have to be activated? I need to wipe this thing ASAP.

    Use Linux! It is a much better way then RSD Lite. Just Google SBF with Linux and there are about three sets of good instructions. I never SBF with RSD now.

    Linux is not always the solution(surprising? I know it's powerful). You have to do a data wipe right after sbf if you want it truly clean. SBF always unroots.

    Did you run as administrator and do a factory reset?

    I'm in a pickle... My rooted D2G had dead pixles... it's still under warranty, so I called the warranty place. I forgot to unroot before she made me wipe my system. Arrrg! Now it's still rooted, but I don't have the Market or file manager or anything useful on there and when I download manually, it keeps force closing. When I go to the Market on the web, I can't install my programs (like file manager)... I'm getting my new one tomorrow and I have to send this one back. Can anyone point me to detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to unroot this pos?

    Thanks so much for all your help!

    Ok..first..
    Go to your computer...
    Download rsdlite 4.9 or earlier..
    Download..sbf file from droid life website.(make sure its d2global full sbf..)
    Open up your rsdlite and then minamize it to tool bar
    Find your sbf file, and move it to your desktop, unzip it..
    Open back up rsdlite..then push the three little dots on the rsdlite menu at the center top..looks like. ... ok now when it opens put the sbf file in the folder so it will be found..

    Now..make sure your phone is charged completely..
    Turn phone off
    Hold power and up until you see a black screen..plug into usb on computer
    Now look on rsdlite ,you should see the phone model wrote on the top line..if not make sure you have the drivers installed..should've said that earlier..lol
    Now you should see your phone model on the right hand box. Bunch of writing..
    Hit the start button and kick back and watch..
    It will run for a bit
    Don't unplug until it tells you
    Do not touch anything while its running
    After its done unplug and if your phone starts bootlooping, don't freak out..if more than 4 minutes of bootlooping, and the program says done anyway on computer, unplug, and pull battery and wipe data factory reset..and reboot to your new shiny phone..stock as it gets..
    If you get confused..youtube has walkthroughs with downloads...peace and hope I helped:)

    Also, on the boot screen, I'm getting the following:

    Bootloader
    D0.11

    Code Corrupt

    Battery OK
    OK to Program
    Connect USB
    Data Cable

    Is the Code Corrupt for the bootloader or the fact that I don't have an OS? Thanks again y'all!

    Try downloading the new motorola usb drivers, that's what helped me get past this error. I had to install the latest drivers and then plug my usb cable into a new port in order for it to recognize. Then start rsd and start the sbf.
