    Updated Your DROID 2? DO NOT USE THE CURRENT SBF! (Updated) - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    if this needs to be deleted then sorry but figured it might be important..

    Again, if you updated your Droid 2 to build 2.3.20, DO NOT USE THE CURRENT SBF FILE that’s available. It will essentially “brick” your phone.

    Update: Sorry if I wasn’t specific enough at first, was trying to just get this out to the masses as the update is becoming more and more available. An SBF file is basically the file used by VZW techs to wipe your phone completely and reinstall a clean OS. There is a Droid 2 2.2 SBF floating around in the wild right now, but if you update your phone with the new update, this SBF will not work and if you try to use it, could end up with a bricked phone. This only affects ROOTED USERS as they are the ones tinkering with their phones. For the average user, ignore this post.

    I pulled the update down last night.
    Had to SBF back to factory, and then still didn't get the prompt. Found some other threads where people posted the update and I manually applied it.

    I can say the phone does feel more fluid now, and battery life is great! I've had already two 10-15 minute phone calls, pulled down data, had a live wallpaper running, skype running, wifi enabled, etc, and I'm only down to 80%....thats from unplugging it around 6am this morning!

    I can't wait to see how an extended battery will fare, but whatever Moto/verizon did...KUDOS on an excellent release!

    My Droid World has a rooted, and deodexed version of 2.3.20, as well as the new SBF saftey net on their site. It would be nice if they weren't so insistent on hoarding click-thrus by using a free uploading site. Guess they would rather have their server slammed.

    Anyway, here is the link: TBH & MyDroidWorld Present: Droid 2 (2.3.20) Triple Threat

    I have about 20 minutes left on my current download

    Ok, so does it overwrite your theme? Because if the them is still in place, then getting root back shouldn't be too difficult

    No its cool, I was talking to anyone who bothered flashing. I have the file, I just haven't had the patience to sit and flash it, because I know I'm gonna want to immediately start hacking the file the framework to retain the look of my phone I worked so hard to get. My current theme is the combination of like 4 put together.

    That's abnormal. I've seen my phone sit at 90% for about 8 hours. (went to sleep at 90, woke up the next morning still at 90)

    Has this update crashed anyone else's battery manager? I can open the manager, but when I go to usage statistics, it get a force close (processes com.android.settings) every time.

    Anyone else?

    Has anyone in the New York/New Jersey area gotten this update? Supposedly started rolling out the 28th and it's four days later and my phone still says no update is available. Been wanting that improved battery life

    On another note, I got the battery life to last dramatically longer by using the Power Control Widget to shut off background data sync. I don't use push email I check it manually and I don't do live social networking updates and all that stuff so I only need to turn it on for two things - for the android market and to use my instant messenger client.

    Quite a significant increase in battery life.

    Hmm, kinda makes me wonder if they roll these updates out to smaller cities first to see if all goes well before they hit the big cities with much larger populaces. Just speculation of course but it would make some sense.

    Still nothing in Central Ohio. I guess that shoots down the "smaller city" notion. :-)

    Funny thing about that, I had a long layover in Atlanta last Wednesday and checked several times for updates, but got nothing. I'm wondering if they target by phone number rather than location?

    LOL, I know the guys who do the Podcast would love to chime in on their feelings about people doing location roll calls for updates.
