    I need some help and im getting the run around looking myself. I installed what was suppose to be the " official" GB from Verizon, knowing that today I have a replacement coming and wasn't too worried about messing things up. BUT now not that I don't like GB I can't tell ship this back to Verizon with an unofficial OS on it... So how do I roll back to GB I'm newer to DROID but its not like I don't know how to do stuff being a former BB owner for years and I can't find the right link or forum to point me on the right direction. AS for GB as soon as I set up my replacement Im switching my new phone to it.It definitely is a better build.

    That link appears to have everything you should need to flash back. What issue are you having?

    Follow instruction here...

    Keep in mind to get into Bootloader to install from 2.3.3. GB you have to press Volume Up and Down and power and then plug in device....

    Send it back the way it is. They wont care about what OS is on there. I did it all the time with blackberries.

    Don't do it refurb Droid X's are horrible! I had to email VZW exec's to get them to send me a new one after 6 bad phones in a row.

    If you have .340 sbf use RSD Lite, in admin mode if you are running Windows 7, I did it by booting the phone into the bootloader then plugging in the usb and flashing it back to 2.2

    Try this link to download build .588: http://db.tt/zvgK4vM

    Verizon is changing their policies on rooting and becoming more strict so I wouldn't do this because you could get a 600.00 retail price added to your bill, I have seen this happen to co-worker so it can happen.

    Ouch, do they really have the right to do that? If anything they should simply send it back informing him that the warranty is void, that is pretty shady of VZW

    If they send him a replacement device and the device he sends them is rooted or has evidence of having been rooted, then its warranty is void, which means that yes, they DO have the right to charge him $600. They have that right because he made a warranty claim on a device, they sent him a new one, and the one they received in return turned out to be ineligible for warranty claims.

    There are ways to argue with them but it is easier to just rsd back and then send it back.

    OK so here is the issue. I have it all loaded RSD lite etc but I can't get it reconized my device. Is version 4.8 not the right RSD for a Droid X?

    I used the method posted at the following link. Don't have to mess with rsd and sbf file.

    1. Downloaded the file noted HERE. All instructions are there as well.

    2. Burned the .iso file using software imgburn.com.

    3. Started up laptop from burned dvd in step 2.

    Followed instructions. Very simple one step process once you've burned the cd/dvd.
