Ok since no one is answering Ill say this.

You CANNOT SBF back. The 2.3.4 update changes your bootloader. None of the SBFs will work anymore once you update. This was told the day it was released. You will also lose Root ability.

Sorry but until someone can overcome the bootloader or the current SBF is leaked you peeps are stuck.

Not trying to be an ass, just wondering why you installed the update knowing that you would lose root and couldn't SBF back.

A. My batt life and stability tanked after the update, and I was fed up
B. Didn't think it through
C. I thought I could easily download the most recent sbf and reflash-but didnt check first to see its wasn't available.
D. I have a spare phone, so knew if I bricked it, I would be OK
E. I'm not shocked or mad, I'm already married, so enough told-you-so's

Don't expect the sbf anytime soon as the Droid 2 is dead and pretty much nobody cares about it. :/

That's why I love me some MIUI. Also why Moto is on the bottom of my list for future upgrades. Sony is looking dead sexy about now.

Exclamation Please Keep an Eye Peeled--Lots of People need this
Well this thread and about 4 others all drill down to the same issue.

We are all looking for a leaked 2.3.4 sbf for Verizon Droid2 or R2D2. Please all you people in the know keep your eyes peeled for a leak, and post the second it appears (if ever).
