    Hello everyone,

    Decided to finally try rooting and putting a custom ROM on my Droid 2 today. Rooting went fine, but when I tried to install Epic Unleashed 2.5 something went wrong. Thought I followed the steps correctly but I might have messed up deleting the cache after or something... Tried wiping data/cache from the standard recovery afterward, since I couldn't get it to boot into clockwork, but no luck.

    Got RSD lite 4.8 and tried using that to flash an sbf, but I'm not sure I have the right sbf or anything as it doesn't seem to have had any effect. Looked at the instructions to un-root the phone with RSD lite, but the sbf it suggested to download is a corrupt archive.

    I'm using windows, so the linux recovery file fix is a pretty big leap for me.

    So right now I have a phone that endlessly boots to the Epic logo, then doesn't do anything. I can get to the boot loader and RSD lite seems to work with it, or I can go to the standard recovery menu, but those seem to be my only options right now. I've been searching the web trying things for a couple hours now, but no luck.

    Any ideas?

    Turns out, I had a good sbf, I just needed to run the program as an admin >_<

    Thank you so much for your help Captain! I actually read your thread before and was using that info!

    Team black hat definitely saved the day with those files, I had a corrupt sbf before and had to get a warranty replacement device, I just thought I was bricked, turns out all I needed was the correct software

    I think someone should completely close the Epic sub-forum for now, at least until Matt decides to take on Android again.
