The method basically involved sbf-ing from .621 to a Milestone .604 sbf file and running a manual exploit to gain root and then from there you can install the Droid 2 Bootstrap and then flash any ROM you want on your Droid X.

A user named bukolov1 from the Ukraine is the one that originally posted this method.

I posted this in DX general in the update thread there, but to expand on what you've said you MUST run the 604 SBF using SBF_Flash on Linux, or else you will flash your baseband and lose 3G Data! Also, the SBF and root (zergurshv4) have been rehosted to mediafire.

Now to do this you MUST use SBF_flash on Linux, otherwise you will flash your baseband and your data will not work (this can be corrected by a call to VZW asking them to reprovision your data). Once on this 604 your phone will report as a Milestone, but you can install BSR/CWM and flash over to a *GB* rom (froyo roms will not work, IIRC) and after that it'll report as DX (this can also be achieved using a build.prop edit, but who really wants stock? If you do just want stock and you do this build.prop edit, you will need to freeze/remove the updater or else it'll freak and try to update and bug you incessantly.) Hope this helps! I've got a dx2 personally but I've been following this thread hoping to glean some information for when our next update drops (which was supposed to happen like a week ago... -__-)

The shadow version download is around 161 MB. I am not having any luck with either SBFing my Droid X (containing System Version 4.5.621.MB810.Verizon.en.US. It already has .621 on it but for some reason after the OTA update my rooted DroidX's wifi disconnects immediately after connecting. Thought I would try and start from scratch. I'm a newbie with this kind of thing.

Help!

I'm getting this 15 MB thing too. This being my friend's Droid X, I want to make sure that the file is right. Can anyone else confirm before I flash this in stock recovery for him?

I bought a Droid X from someone here on xda. While I'm not a noob to android I am a noob to bootstrap, leaving the phone plugged in at certain times etc.

The X I bought came with Cm9 on it. Can someone give me the easiest way to sbf the X? I don't need it rooted or a custom recovery on it, I just want it stock.

Thanks guys

I can't post direct links now, but this should suffice: http://www.google.com/search?rlz=1Y3...&q=droid+x+sbf

Be sure to SBF to .621.
