You should get a little green android. Now let go of everything.
Now push the volume up and down at the same time. A blue menu should come up allowing you to clear cache and wipe/restore. "
for anyone who has trouble getting through bootloop problems
Yeah, doesn't work.
The phone boots straight to the bootloader and due to failed gingerbread install, well, it removes a lot of the core pieces of the D2G's boot process(aka, it has no more recovery mode available).
RSD-lite also fails at BP passthrough.
Anyway, to the OP;
After going through the past, ehhh, 4 hours or so trying to get this to work, I'm going to just say that you're not going to get it to work via virtualbox. Whenever I tried to connect the phone via USB and have it recognised in the virtual machine, virtualbox would either 1. Outright crash or 2. Give an error on connecting it.
You're going to need to burn the ubuntu .ISO to a disc and use it as a livecd and do everything off of it. Which, honestly, isn't that bad.
I used directions off of here
, replacing with the .sbf from here
For whatever reason I couldn't completely copy over the .sbf via USB, so I just downloaded while on the livecd.
In any case, I can confirm it works, which is great.
