I want to make sure before I try anything, since I feel an SBF will be coming soon if there is a GB update.

You shouldn't have any issues with it. It extracts to the full 444mb .sbf file, which works perfectly fine under RSDLite 4.9. I've sbf'd 30+ times, using that exact sbf.

The first time I tried to flash SBF with RSD Lite 4.9, it failed and the phone rebooted.

The second time I tried to flash SBF with RSD Lite 4.9, I used this SBF file:

Once extracted, it had the same filename as the original one I downloaded.

Here is the MD5 of the SBF file (unzipped of course) that worked for me: c2b6c62f1cca1919661e4f7921ece2f7

I had already gotten rid of the other one, so I don't know if there was a difference or if I just had to try twice for some reason.

At what point is it safe to unplug the phone from the computer?

Awesome tutorial, thanks for this. Is there ever a need to wipe data/cache before SBFing? Or does it pretty much do that in the process?

You would do those things if the phone started bootlooping.

Sorry all, I've been gone for awhile. Started working and what not, but I am going to try my best to keep coming back here to answer questions and what not.

still locked! afther full flash & no way to factory reset on my phone

i only need to factory reset ive try any times with

Power down the DROID 2 by holding the power button and then selecting Power Off
Hold the X key on the keyboard and turn the power back on, keep holding down the X key until you see a yellow triangle icon
Now close the slider and hold down the Volume Up button, then press the Camera button while still holding volume up
A menu will appear and one of the choices will be "wipe data/factory reset" -- use the direction pad on they keyboard to select this option
Scroll down using the direction pad to the "yes" option and select it with the d-pad select key

& with
a. Turn off your phone
b. Hold down X on the keyboard
c. Turn on your phone while continuing to hold X
d. When you get the Android guy with a '!' in a triangle push the search button on the keyboard (the magnifying glass button, two keys to the left of the space bar)
e. Select both 'wipe cache' and 'wipe data' from the menu.
f. Reboot your phone

the hard reset no work for my with any form (& the keys7Buttons are working properly)
i been full flashed Thanks to your tutorial
But still locked
Too many attempts
any ideas¿?

since multiupload appears to be down, and the sbf is not available in the OP, can someone link it here?

edit: nevermind, found the image from another thread here. also, i kept getting a weird device id when trying to use the software (some TI OMAPxxxx device showed up), so i used the linux sbf_flash method and it worked great. also, when i got to the hold down X part, i had to use VolumeUp and VolumeDown together to get it to show the menu.
