    You need to SBF (unless u updated to the latest OTA, then SBF will toast your phone).

    You need to hold the power button and I BELIEVE but am UNSURE if it is up arrow and x or volume up + volume down to get to bootloader mode. MAKE SURE YOUR BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED

    Then use rsdlite to flash an SBF. There should be full links and tutorials in the D2 section, there's no need to make a(nother) thread about it.

    You don't need to be on a custom rom to SBF, and technically you can get away with sending back a rooted phone. Assurion, the company that handles insurance/warranty returns will SBF the phone before looking at anything.

    But you can do it yourself (takes about an hour to set up the program and flash the SBF), save time and money, and they'll never know.

    I will ask again though, did you update to the newest OTA? Because if you did, you CANNOT SBF the phone.

    he wants to send back, so if SBF, bricks phone should be fine
    they are not going to find anything with MEM_MAP Blank / Service Req'd

    I didn't think Droid 2 had a recent update, just Droid x, D2G, R2D2, and Droid X2
    I'm sure ones coming, if not out

    edit: and it's out
    [h=2]DROID 2 4.5.621 Update Finally Arrives[/h]
