Made a post over at XDA in light of some help.. Decided i'll try to post here as well. This is my problem:

I can not for the life of me get my Droid 2 back to its original state. I've tried both the Windows (RSDLite) and Linux method. Both of them fail. I pray that someone can help me, since I do not have insurance on my device it would cost a pretty penny to get a new one.

For Windows, these are the tools i've tried and FAILED:
1. RSDLite

  • RSDLite 4.7 w/ patch


  • RSDLite 4.8


  • RSDLite 4.9


  • Moto Connect 4.7


  • Moto Connect 4.8


  • 10 different versions of the SBF file

This is my output from FlashErrorLog02_10_16_45_02

2. For Linux, these are the tools i've tried and FAILED:

  • sbf_flash v1.08


  • sbf_flash v1.11


  • 10 different versions of the Droid 2 SBF

This is my error output:
SBF_Flash 1.11 -> hXXp://pastebin.com/pL5urNm8 (replace XX with TT)
SBF_Flash 1.08 -> hXXp://pastebin.com/SpQcnfm1 (replace XX with TT)

I am hoping someone here could help me. I've spent the last 3 days trying this and reading over 1000++ threads and different methods.

------------------------------------------

My Droid 2 is currently using Bootloader D2.37. I've refreshed and reloaded the Bootloader.. I've also tried to downgrade it in attempt to see if it'd do anything, but it seems to not allow me to - says Failed. I followed a thread somewhere on this site.

These are the problems i'm encountering which is leading to me wanting to restore my phone.

About a week ago, my phone suddenly Force Closed on everything I attempted to open. At the moment, I was sending a text. I then rebooted my device, and oddly enough, all my "new" text I sent were gone. It only restored the last time my phone was in a usable state. Seems to not save anything I do on my phone prior to the reboot. I'm not sure what the heck the deal is. My phone still works, but every few hours I must reboot my phone.

I've already tried multiple times to Wipe Data/Cache, Uninstall Apps (once I reboot, they all come back), and deleting Bootstrap through ADB/Terminal and reinstalling. I can't even get into Bootstrap.. I just can't seem to do anything with my device. Everytime I remove or delete something, the next reboot will bring them back.

Has anyone ever heard of this weird issue? I've tried searching to see if this has happened to anyone elses Droid 2, but it seems i'm the first to encounter this

That's crazy....What about that TBH app on the market? Gives you SBF in a zip which requires no computer....have you tried that?
 
You need 4.8 or 4.9 to flash on the D2, so starting point is to use one of them.

Are you running a ROM? If so, what? And which version?

What version of Windows are you running? And why do you need to take it back to stock? Have you done a factory reset? :)

@furbearingmammal:

1. Yup, I've tried RSDLite 4.7 w/ patch, 4.8, and 4.9 respectively. All versions returned Failed results. I've tried to run it on all available versions of Windows accessible to me.

2. Currently I am running Fission 2.2.1.

3. My device is constantly Force Closing. It does not save anything I do. After every reboot, everything I did prior to the reboot disappears. THis is why i'm in the need of SBF'ing. Factory wipe does not go through from Recovery (Stock Recovery), and/or through my phone setting. I can not get into Bootstrap Recovery, otherwise I would wipe this ROM off and re-install a new ROM over it.
 
Can you reinstall Bootstrapper? Also, have you tried ROM Manager to flash Clockwork? You can sometimes force Clockwork to load by doing multiple battery pulls.

Have you booted into safe mode?
 
I was JUST thinking that :)

I've tried to reinstall BootStrapper, it did no good. I even went as far as purchasing the App directly from the market, along with TBH's app. Problem is, the App does not stick, so after rebooting it restores everything back to how it was prior to the installation of any app. This problem is driving me crazy. I'm in the process of closing a deal off a Craigslist seller for a D2G. I hope I can get it tomorrow. I still want to fix this phone :\

I still want to fix this phone though, so I could possibly resell it or give it to



Edit: Yea PC was helping me, we've tried different methods to no avail. What is this Safe Mode? Is it X+Power, Camera+Vol Up/Down+Power?
 
How to start your Motorola Droid 2 smartphone in Safe Mode. This will boot the device with the default software and settings. It is used for those occasions when you have installed something on your phone that has caused it to malfunction to a point where you can’t undo it.

1. Power the Droid 2 off.

2. Slide the keyboard open.

3. Press and hold the OK key while powering the device back on.

4. Keep holding the OK key until you see the Home screen load. It should say Safe Mode in the bottom-left corner of the screen.

To take the device out of Safe Mode, simply power the device off, then back on.

Taken from here: Droid 2: Enable Safe Mode

See if that even works. If it does, you might be able to make some changes and be able to fix things.
 
I was able to get into Safe Mode, i'm not exactly sure what I could do in here. My App Drawer only shows the default apps. What do you suggest I do in here?
 
Try doing a few things. If you don't get all those FC issues then you know it's probably an app screwing things up in normal mode.

Does the Market work in Safe Mode? If so, try installing Bootstrapper again.
