    Alot of the time you need to do *22800, device may not activate due to it not being able to lock on to a specific channel. Once the esn is acive in the system. The provisioning should have taken place.

    PM'ed you a couple of possible solutions, but just so everybody knows what I suggested:
    1) Make sure the device is in bootloader mode and connected to the PC
    2) Make sure you downloaded the entire SBF file, should be 439MB in size

    If this doesn't work, let us know.

    Stuck with blue triangle

    How do I do a factory reset?

    I tried flashing the phone for the past hour. RSD Lite looked like it was doing everything it should. Towards the end, it reboots the phone. Then in the Status, it says "Please manually power up the phone". I would, but it has already been powered up when it rebooted it.

    Now I have a blue triangle where 3G would normally appear. If I open settings, then go to "About phone" and in "Status", "My phone number" is only 4 digits, Network is unknown.

    You need to activate your phone. I believe its *228. If you want to factory reset, go to Settings>privacy>factory reset

    Activation fixed it

    Thanks akappy332! I tried to do that online and nothing happened. The *228 worked.

    I wonder if the flash worked? Is there any way to check? It looked like RSD Lite was almost done. I don't know why it would tell me to power up the phone after RSD Lite had just rebooted it.

    I basically went through the same situation. The flash most likely went through. I just manually rebooted the phone since it was already on. Though i did to a factory reset right after the flash and my phone was well... out of the box. Interestingly enough, the flash didn't fix my problem in the first place which was my home screen being completely black. I dont really know. I'm just happy its fixed.

    This happened to me - i'm pretty sure this is due to the location of your sbf. Try putting the sbf on the root of your C drive (that is, C:\name.sbf).

    Sorry for the newb question, but I've never had to fix a bricked droid...

    What exactly are the drivers, and where can I find them (need 64bit)? I have RSD installed, and I also have a copy of the .sbf
