YouTube Flashing SBF w/rsd lite on D2, D2G & R2D2
YouTube How to SBF the Droid 2 using rsd lite -by Tomsgt123

1. download and install RSD Lite 5.7 ,other versions may work fine
2. download your recovery firmware image (.sbf or .xml) try looking here or here
if ends in .gz, .7z,or .rar uncompress with 7 Zip or other file-compression utility
if it ends in .zip rsd lite can uncompress it for you
3. install moto drivers

open rsd Lite
select your recovery firmware click on “...” (top middle, see pics below...)
boot moto device to bootloader
connect to pc via usb
usb data cable (original motorola prefered)
usb port, rear ports are normally better than front
to view Device Properties, click on S Flash, under Model column
if rsd lite can not see you device read Driver errors
select Start

error: if you see MEM_MAP Blank, on the phone, you use an incompatible file, try the newest version
make sure file is for you device model

Wiping Data:
before (or after) flashing sbf, wiping data in android recovery is recommended
if you choose not to wipe data, at least wipe cache, if phone bootloops you have no choice, but to wipe data

if phone starts bootlooping, and you can not get to recovery try
pull battery,
press and hold R,
reinsert battery, if it does not start to boot, press power,
when you see !, triangle, and Andy, release R,
then press both volume buttons to continue to android recovery

Notice: if you disconnect phone from pc, before phone has finished rebooting, and then try to close rsd lite, you may get a warning from rsd lite, about damaging your device
don’t worry about it phone will be fine, as long as flashing is done

Activation and skipping activation:
if phone reboots to activation screen, touch android to activate or if you do not wish to activate with verizon, use four corners activation skip
[Video] How to bypass activation on the Droid 2 -Tomsgt123

also if phone does not boot to activation screen, it may be necessary to dial *228+ to reconnect to verizon
DF [INFO] can not activate phone/ no dial pad on *228/
XDA [INFO] No keypad during activation work around (dial *228+)
Dial *22891 to update the PRL or *22899 to program the phone and update the PRL both

if rsd Lite is not working correctly try running as administrator, and/or disabling virus protection

driver errors
