    Hello,

    The other day I rooted and I think it was messing up some of my apps and I just wanted to basically start all over. So I was wondering if anyone knew how to get my phone back to the state it was in right out of the box, or do I need to just go and flash another ROM and start from scratch with that. Thanks.

    You will need to SBF your phone back to stock (either .330 or earlier).
    You will need an SBF file, RSDLite 4.9 up and the moto drivers. Good instructions are at SBF - The DROID Wiki

    If you then want to update to the Gingerbread (.607) you can look at: Gingerbread leak - D2G Updated to 4.5.607!

    Thanks Silver,

    Can you explain what exactly it means to SBF my phone, and what exactly is Gingerbreak and what does it do?

    EDIT: Sorry, just looked at the Wiki Link. System Boot File. Got it!!

    So I have read up a little bit on this stuff just now. I am still really confused. Do I need to download these things to my phone, or hook my phone up to a computer. I guess I need some serious baby steps in doing this because I am not understanding at all. One page says hook it up to a computer and another says flash it from your phone. I just need a fool proof way to get it back up and running I guess.

    The SBF file, RSDLite and the moto drivers all need to be downloaded to the computer. You then start RSDlite, connect your phone via USB, and that will flash your phone.

    To the OP: When I first started doing an SBF change I too was a bit apprehensive. I did a search on Youtube for SBF and was able to watch the process on video, this helped my confidence and once I got started it became "old hat".

    Silver, Benton,

    Thank you both! I am going to try and get these things up and going and I will post again before Saturday. Please just check back and make sure I'm all good. I wont be able to do this for several hours, but I will try and get it done tonight. Thanks again!

    Another thing, when I try and get rdslite it always ends up saying "file not found" is there a specific spot I could dl it at? Either one of you know?

    I Google'd RSDlite and it took me to where to download the latest versions, quite a few sources available. Keep us posted, we are all on this forum to help and learn from each other which in your case we get both so thanks to you!

    I can not seem to find a 4.9 download for a mac that is free. I dont know if I need to use a torrent or if there is one out there I can just grab off the net?

    Ok, well none of this is working for my mac. Is there a way I can do it with just using my phone? Maybe using some apps. I have rom manager (premium) but see no roms when I look for them in the "Download ROM" section. All I get is the free crap.

    sbf_flash should work on MacOS X. It works for everyone else.

    You cannot flash an SBF without a computer.

    It might be because Im working with my work computer. It is very picky about the stuff that goes on and off my computer. I clicked your link and it asked if I wanted to download. I said yes, and then it asked how I wanted to open it, the only way I was able to open it was with Text Edit and then it came up with the normal crazy everything on their.

    You should save it as a file on your disk, not open it. For example, save it in your home directory (~), and then open a terminal window (or file properties) and type “chmod 755 sbf_flash” (or, in the properties, make sure the file is marked executable for you, the group you belong to, and everyone else).

    Then just plug the phone into USB, and type “./sbf_flash DROID2WE_X6_2.4.29_FULL.sbf” (for example); in MacOS X your standard shell should support filename completion so it should be possible to type “./sbf_flash DR”, press the TAB key, and the file name will be autocompleted to DROID2WE_X6_2.4.29_FULL.sbf.

    (Of course, you need to hit the ENTER key once you complete entering a command with its arguments.)

    Ok, so I have it saved on a sandisk cruzer. Now I am lost, Im not sure what a terminal window is and where I need to type the "chmod..." at. I have not a clue really, I do have a usb cord and I do know how to plug that in. LOL, but as for typing things in, I am very very lost.

    Copy the file (sbf_flash) and the SBF file to your home folder (I don't think it'll be easy to explain to you how to change directories in the Terminal).

    Go to Utilities → Terminal (in your Applications).

    You'll see a window appear, with text that goes somewhat like
    Code:
    Welcome to Darwin!
    [localhost ~] joseyjos%
    Where joseyjos is your user name.

    That's where you type the commands I listed above, like this:

    Code:
    Welcome to Darwin!
    [localhost ~] joseyjos% chmod 755 sbf_flash
    [localhost ~] joseyjos% ./sbf_flash DROID2WE_X6_2.4.29_FULL.sbf
    chmod shouldn't output anything on successful completion.

    sbf_flash, however, spams out a lot of debug information.
