People, through the efforts of the Fimware Team and Pzyduck, we finally have the sbf of 4.5.629 for D2G, this is going to help revive their phones brick, if you already installed the update and tried to return froyo or 4.5.608.



REMEMBER: that if you install this sbf, never, never to return to a previous version, also remember there is no root method for the moment, this only serves to revive brick phones if they had already upgraded to 4.5.629.


USE AT YOUR OWN RISK, Rootzwiki OR I ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR PHONE

You know what really grinds my gears? Everyone can release all the others BUT NOT THE .621 for the D2 Verizon! Such a huge inconvenience.

Read it, my 2 cents...

They don't publically release these file nor do they condone this upgrade/restore method. They cannot be held liable if you screw up their software using unsanctioned process'.

yeah, motorola has got to be one of the worst manufacturers out there.. every phone i've ever had from them, even some of my friends would agree with this, has had problems.. because either the charger port breaks off fast, or something goes wrong internally of the device.. blah blah. it just sucks that they make nice looking devices that they won't give full technical support on to help you as a customer to be happy with your product. always chasing the quick bills, and quick loopholes.

Yeah, considering every single device by Motorola is inherently broken (according to you and others) it's weird how both my Motorola V547 (bought in 2003, still working) and D2G (bought in June 2010, not a single brick happened) have had no issues whatsoever.

LOL It's true. I have a flip razr from 2004 that I dropped 500x and it still works perfectly. Only thing wrong with it now is that the battery is dead. My droid 2 global has never been bricked yet and I have two of them. Also the droid X I got is running like a champ.

Only thing wrong is user error. Motorola doesn't condone flashing ROMs and messing with it. That's why it has a locked bootloader to prevent people from bricking their devices. You mess with that bootloader and your warranty is voided. Simple as that. You should know the risk you took when you decided to flash or sbf.

This is standard policy for all manufactures. Even HTC, when you unlock the bootloader using their program, you're on your own.

First: I like how those complaining about the hardware/software only have a few posts.

On topic(ish): I've dropped and thrown it, exposed the thing to water and heat, etc. I've even crashed my bike and landed on it. The only way to break these things is to apply absurd stress on the weak areas (usb/audio plug, hammering buttons, forcefully sliding it open).

On the software side: Except for people who screwed up the 629 update, they are impossible to brick. Not via software updates or by modifying the system partition. Since there's no bootloader or recovery access for us, they'll always be capable of being restored. Most failed updates and SBF's can be attributed to dirty data/cache partitions.

You got the D2G that early? For Verizon customers, the release was Nov 2010 (I know you are not a Verizon customer, just wasn't aware it was available to others that much earlier)
