Hi, guys. I am a new member here at XDA and would like some people to test a version of Darkonion's Dosbf script modified for Macs. I have tested this this with my Mac, and a Droid X, and everything has gone wonderfully. I need to verify that it actually works with other Macs, so if anyone would like to help me out here, I would be very grateful.

Remember to wipe data/cache after SBF to be safe.

If you've gotten the message "error: no sbf_flash program" then you'll need to restart terminal and run the command "./sbf_flash droid2.sbf" after you cd to the SBF_Flasher_1.4 directory.

Update: SBF_Flasher_1.4
MAJOR UPDATE: Using the right sbf_flash finally. If for some reason this zip doesn't work, go here:

If that happens, it basically means that the sbf_flash file is not an executable. Try this.

In terminal, type "chmod +x" and leave a space, then open the SBF_Flasher_1.3 folder and drag sbf_flash into terminal. Here's how it should look.

chmod +x /location of folder/SBF_Flasher_1.3/sbf_flash"

you don't have to put the SBF file on your sdcard, you just copy it to the SBF_Flasher folder on your computer and rename it droid2.sbf

Make sure you pull the battery in between trying, otherwise you'll have to find another battery.
What phone and software version are you running? Did you get the correct SBF file?

Well, I don't own a D2, so here is all I can say.

1. Make sure you chmod +x both the sbf_flash and the SBF_Flasher.sh files

2. Download the 2.3.20 SBF, or whatever the most current one is and copy it to the SBF_Flasher folder. Rename the sbf "droid2.sbf" case-sensetive and without quotes

3. Run SBF_Flasher.sh and tell me at what point it errors, and what it says.

this is where i am getting stuck at

Press any number or letter key, then enter to continue.

chmod +x /Users/alkap16/Desktop/SBF_Flasher_1.3/sbf_flash 1
Error: No sbf_flash program
Exiting

although i am not sure if i am "chmod +x" the SBF_Flasher.sh file correctly.

sorry for all this this is my first time doing anything like this on my phone or computer.
