    First off, THANKS for the guide.

    Now for my questions.
    Because my phone is not displaying the menu buttons, I can't get set turn on debugging mode in PC mode. (1) Does my phone need to be in debug mode to flash successfully?
    If you're phone is not in USB debugging thats fine, just open up to the bootloader (power and up arrow on keyboard) and then try RSDlite.

    I also tried to enter bootloader by way of the power/up button. The phone just shows the Moto Logo. RSD shows connected. (2) Am I good to load the SBF? How do I exit this mode? None of the buttons worked and only way to get the phone to respond again was battery removal.
    I would use the other method to actually enter the bootloader. It will be a black screen with some white lettering.
    (3) Lastly, RSD showed different phone data when connected in PC mode and power/up button. Is this normal? Is there a better/preferred way to flash?

    Thanks.
    If you downloaded the right files then you should be fine. RSDlite will say the the SBF has all sorts of weird things like 4G and whatnot, but the monster_2.3.2 will work on the D2

    this is correct
    I looked carefully inside Monster_2.3.2_4.5.153_updater_Rooted.zip and there is no .sbf file. There are no files that RSD can open. What am I doing wrong?

    Am I suppose to use RSD or just rename that folder to update.zip and do an update?

    sorry for all the questions, but the information does not seem straight forward.

    thanks again for all the help.

    the monster_2.3.2 file you downloaded should be a .zip folder then you extract it . once you have done that open the new folder and there should be a .sbf file in it. I haven't done this in a while so i ma be wrong though. let me know how it works.

    I downloaded and extracted the .zip of the sbf, but it wont show in rsd lite, what am I doing wrong?
    The same thing is happening to me. I can't find the .sbf file! I downloaded the monster_2-1.3.2?4.5.153_updater_Rooted.zip but can't find the .sbf!

    I have two problems, I made it to step 10 but I can't get it to stop bootlooping so I can wipe data and cache. And what does bull battery means

    if its bootlooping, then disconnect your device from your computer and remove the battery. as you turn it back on, hold power and volume up i believe to open into the stock recovery. then push both volume keys simultaneously to make the text viewable. then select wipe data and cache. and follow the instructions.

    Thank's for the help, I'm back to stock. But for my droid 2, I had to hold down power and x on my keyboard, then press the search key on on the keyboard.

    So now I'm starting to panic! I tried downloaded the SBF again and tried it. Got to same point. Guess what happened next? Battery died and I'm sitting at bootloader with it telling me that I have corrupt code and low battery that does not have enuff charge to program... suggestions? Cuz as everyone knows the phone does not charge in bootloader.

    do you know anyone with a motorola android device? they could charge you up. or you could buy a battery charger off ebay for about 3 dollars.

    Thank you so much! This was a huge help. I was running the leaked version of GingerBread on my Droid2 and i loved it at first, but all the little bugs started to annoy me so i wanted to get back to stock froyo. So if anyone else is running the leaked GB version, this will work and get you back to stock. I did notice a couple things that i had to do different and i just wanted to let you know in case other people run into these problems.

    "12) enter recovery by holding power and volume down. "

    i was not able to get this step to work with my phone open or closed. I got it to work by holding down the "x" on my physical keyboard while holding down the power button. This got me into recovery mode (the green android standing under the exclamation point in a triangle). I found this at this link: Droid 2 Recovery Menu - xda-developers

    "13) when the android guy with a caution triangle around him appears click press either (power and volume down, or power and volume up, or volume up and down) [sorry about that i cant remember which one it is off hand] simultaneously until the blue menu fonts appear."

    i also could not get this step to work with my phone open or closed. I had to press the search button (the magnifying glass on the physical keyboard) to get the blue text to show. i also found this at: Droid 2 Recovery Menu - xda-developers

    "14) use the volume down button to hover over wipe data/ factory reset and click the power button to select. then confirm your selection by following the commands."

    On this step, i had to use the camera button (located under the volume button) to select certain commands.


    Thank you so much again!

    I just wanted to thank you for posting this. After HOURS of searching, this is what got my phone back to normal after I made some changes to it without reading more carefully. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I will stay far away from other Droid information sources now!

    hope I get an answer on this.... I want to sbf my R2D2 back to a D2 in order to get the GB update. I have not done something like this before, but I am pretty confident I can do it no worries. My question is this; how do I backup my data on the phone to my PC without being rooted? I'm sure I am going to lose everything that is not stock, i.e apps, Go Launcher, etc.... I know my contacts are not an issue, but what about everything else? My pics must be on my memory card. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    So there's no native R2D2 file? I only ask because I know that the D2's and R2's exact system version is slightly different.
    I'm getting "phone is not compatible" error after executing 100% with rsd, so I'm assuming this does not work with r2d2. Let me know if you have a different experience.

    Thank you so much for these instructions. I was unable to boot past the moto symbol and couldn't get to any of my backups but this made my phone usable again. THANK YOU!
