    Default RSD Lite failing

    I have the non-rooted version of 2.3 installed on my droid 2. I want to simply put the stock motoblur version of 2.2 but RSD lite continues to deliver me this error.
    "Failed flashing process. Failed flashing process. (0x7100); phone connected"
    I've done this before that's why I'm confused. I've pretty much tried reinstalling everything and it still won't work. I've also tried running rsd lite as administrator and placing the .sbf in the root of my c:/ and in my documents folder. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    do you have access to a windows XP device? RSDlite tends to work better on those for some reason. Also what .SBF are you using? It must be the 2.3.20 full. I just did this with My D2 so i know it is possible. Now we just got to figure out why yours didn't.

    raisinbagel,

    Are you running Windows 7? If so, you need to run a specific syntax fm the command line, pull one up by clicking on Start, Run, & enter " cmd " (what is between the quote marks).

    You need do " cd.. " down to the root directory of your windows machine, then cd to
    c:\program files (x86)\motorola\rsd lite\ directory & fm there you need to enter the following at the command prompt:
    sdl.exe -f VRZ_A955_2.3.20_1FF_01.sbf -t 2 keep all spaces in place & the sbf filename needs the underscores.

    This will force rsd lite to run properly i.e. see the sbf filename & enter it. Don't be concerned by the failed flashing msg, just click on the first line, where the failure msg shows, & then click on the 'Show Device' button, wait a bit & even if it doesn't change that first line, click on the rsd lite 'Start' button. It worked like that for me.... btw, I am using rsd lite version 4.9 ...

    Good luck, oldwolf

    Silly question, but do you have the sbf file in your rsd program folder? I tried to sbf once with the file in another folder and got that error... The file has to be in the same folder as the exe for rsd.

    did you flash the sbf while in the bootloader? you get there while holding power and up on the physical keyboard while powering on. RSD is tricky sometimes and that might help out.

    That's another one... It has to be in bootloader mode, which is holding down the up arrow key with it powered off, then powering up. It should be a black screen with very little text.

    I've used rsd Lite on window 7, many times
    you should need to do that , just use RSD Lite 5.7
    and follow How to use RSD Lite

    edit: make sure you are using correct sbf, if phone had 2.3.4 you can only use 2.3.4

    you may want to look at ezSBF for D2 (a955) 2.3.4/4.5.621
    [ROOT] Framaroot, a one-click .APK to root
    I have verified it works with these Motorola devices running android 2.3.4
    Droid 2 (a955), Droid 2 Global (a956), R2D2 (a957), & Droid X (MB810)
