Flashing one of these sbf's will erase everything on your phone and return it to stock software/firmware.

Starting a thread to help everyone find .sbf's easily. If yall have links, either post them here or send me a pm(any way u want to) and ill add them to the list. The more the merrier Posted Image

RSD Lite is a windows program that is used to flash the sbf to your phone. Just use the newest one. If you have problems you can try an older one.
RSD Lite 5.4.4
RSD Lite 4.9
RSD Lite 4.8

GUIDE TO FLASHING THESE SBF's

MOST IMPORTANT IS THAT YOU MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PLENTY OF BATTERY. IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING I WOULD RECOMMEND YOU CHARGE YOUR BATTERY FULLY INCASE YOU DO RUN INTO SOME KIND OF ERROR YOU HAVE PLENTY OF BATTERY TO FLASH IT AGAIN. MOST COMMON PROBLEM IS PEOPLE DOWNLOAD THE WRONG .SBF OR FLASH THE PHONE WITH A LOW BATTERY

Files you will need:
  • SBF File (Which ever version you want to flash to your phone.)
  • RSD Lite (I recommend using the newest version.)
  • Motorola USB Drivers
To Flash the sbf:
  • You need to download the files above
  • You need to install RSD Lite and the Motorola USB Drivers found above
  • Reboot your computer after the motorola drivers are installed
  • Turn the Phone Off
  • Boot your phone into the bootloader mode by pressing the (power button) while holding down the (Camera + Vol. Down). And then let the buttons go after a couple seconds.
  • Then plug your phone into the computer using the usb port. Then, on the phone screen, it should say "Ok to Program".
  • Then open RSDlite and you should see your device is connected. There would be a "1. and your phone blah blah blah" in the bottom window. If you do not see your device connected you dont have the drivers installed or you have the picked the wrong drivers. Or you didnt reboot your computer.
  • Then click the "...." at the top and pick the .sbf file you downloaded. If u happen to have downloaded an sbf file that is not in the .sbf format (ie: .zip .7z .gz ect.) then you need to unzip the file first making sure it is in the .sbf format.
  • Then press the start button and make sure to not disconnect the usb cable until it says phone rebooting or manually reboot phone.
  • Once the sbf process is complete and your phone is booted up, i highly recommend doing a factory reset (data wipe) to erase any old data that was left behind. Once the factory reset is done, you are done doing an sbf to your phone.
  • If your phone did not boot up after the sbf process and is stuck on the M boot logo or you're bootlooping, dont be alarmed. That just hapens sometimes because the sbf process does not delete/wipe data. To fix this just pull the battery for 30 seconds and then reboot into stock recovery by holding the home+power and then once the exclamation point is shown on the screen press the search key (for froyo sbf) or press both volume buttons (for gingerbread sbf).
  • Then choose the Wipe Data/Factory Reset option using the vol buttons to move up and down and the camera button to select the option.
  • When finished, choose the Reboot option and you will have successfully returned your phone to stock.



Alternative Methods
THIS WORKS ON WINDOWS OR LINUX OR MAC.
NOTE: Performing an SBF using this method does not flash the baseband/radio that's in the sbf file. So, you will keep the one currently installed on your phone. If you want to flash the entire sbf file to your phone, you must use RSD Lite, mentioned above.
Linux live CD or USB method in case people have trouble with RSD Lite http://www.droidxfor...e-problems.html

I'm not trying to link to my own blog post to be obnoxious, but for Linux users, the first link below has my own lengthy walkthrough (+links on where to get sbf_flash) for how to SBF using Linux. I threw it in my sig to be helpful, at least hopefully. I use Linux as my main machine, and I know a lot of us Android nerds do too. Again, not trying to plug, just throwing this out there in case this is helpful! The blog post applies to Ubuntu, etc. as well, even though it was written for Mint. Putting it here just in case:
