    They have a 2.1 rooted update zip in the Droid Labs forum on one of the first posts about sbf.

    I just want to say thank you to xlivewire and all those responsible for putting these directions together. They saved my life last night. I had only had my DX for a few hours and bricked it trying to install the latest 2.2 Froyo. I was able to get it back to stock 2.1 ad now I am going to go at it again.

    Lots of pages here that I haven't read all of them to see if someone mentioned this, but I had a similar but different problem. At one point I bricked the thing, sbf would not flash whatsoever (tried multiple sbfs). Eventually RSDlite said it was done, but the phone still said "SW Update in progress". After trying to reboot the only thing I could get was "Code Corrupt". Flashing or anything else wouldn't work at all. The way I fixed it (tried 3x to make sure it worked perfectly...i bricked a lot lol):

    Open the folder RSDlite is in, and delete any files that start with a date and end in flexlog, ie "09_14_22_10_21_FlexLog". Then delete any files that start with Flasherrorlog, like "FlashErrorLog09_14_22_10_21".
    Uninstall the moto drivers via the install/uninstall exe
    Uninstall RSDlite via the install/uninstall exe
    You can restart your computer at this point if you want but I'm not sure its necessary
    Reinstall moto drivers
    Reinstall RSDlite, and don't forget to copy over the pst_flash file
    Go into bootloader mode and flash the_gift w/ RSDlite. This can take ~15 minutes from clicking start to phone being rebooted

    I'm not sure if all those steps are 100% necessary, but that's what definitely worked for me. If you're stuck and out of other options, give it a try.

    If rsd is still loading then just ride it out until after your phone reboots and it looks good. I did this last night and Jt felt like it took an eternity to load.

    Did you catch it when it tried to reboot and hold the buttons to get back into recovery instead of letting it boot like normal?
