Hello,

I recently posted here about my Droid 2 Global and gingerbreak woes, so I was thinking of flashing the sbf file (found here: http://www.mydroidwo...ll-rsdlite.html ). But I am wary, I am on mac and going to try the program sbf_flash as recommended by x13thangelx. The only issue is I don't know of any testimonies about this file and if it still works! The latest post was just how it got updated (here) and the instructions on what to do (here)

Soooooo, basically I am asking if anyone has done this themselves, or if they have insight on whether this works or not, or if the sbf file will work. My plan is to sbf back to 2.4.29, system update, then take the leaked GB on these forums and install that, then root my phone (correctly) and put on some sexy CM7.

Thank you in advance for your help!

I have the leaked Gngerbread. They are finally releasing the new one. I want to flash back to .330 so I can get the offical update. However I cant find the link to download it anywhere. Everyone leads back to the same site, that has removed the file.. any help???

I used sbf_flash on OS X 10.6 after I got into the .607 soak test (I was running the leaked .606 at the time). It worked flawlessly with the 2.4.330 .sbf file.

Thanks x13thangelx! I had a different sbf for .330 that I used and it really kind of messed up my phone (no background, backup assistant is always running and making my phone super slow, none of the stock apps work like dialer, and I can't open up the menu from the home screen!). I will let you know if this one works better.

And Jabberwockish, thanks for that insight, I will freely use sbf_flash and sbf all the things!

This sbf isn't being 'recognized' I guess is the word.

The SBF file I used successfully came from http://hotfile.com/d...1FF_01.rar.html

If that link doesn't work, I can upload my copy somewhere, but it may take awhile.
