Hi everyone,

Please bear with me here but here is the full error I get when I tried to SBF back to 2.3.20 using RSD Lite 4.8 and the SBF file name is 955_2.3.20_1FF_01.sbf



I have tried multiple RSD versions, 4.7+patch, 4.8, 5.4, 5.6 and have had no luck getting past this message at all. I am out of places to look for help, any kind of insight would be wonderful! I was running stock GB trying to go back to Froyo prior to going to CM7.

I have read the forum post close to mine but it has the D2.35 BL and I can't seem to find any other info other than "wait till SBF is found" and with Droid2 not being sold/supported much I don't see much hope in this.

What can be done to fix?

I have tried:
BL_D237_cdma_droid2_Consumer_replacer_HSPart.sbf (wasnt sure if this would help with Bootloader errror) have also tried D2.35

I Have not tried by using the .iso Linux sbf'ing method yet

Help! After a rollback to the stock firmware 2.2 through 2.3.4 RDS Lite, Motorola Droid 2 has stopped working, but you can bootloader on, it gives error:


Service Req'd
Battery OK
OK to Program

You're going to have to wait until the 2.3.4 sbf files leak. I'm in the same boat as you and it's just a waiting game if it ever even gets released.

hondateg91 is correct. Sounds like you took the new .621 Gingerbread 2.3.4 update and, like the rest of us, turned your phone into a paperweight by trying to downgrade. It really is a bummer, and a shame on Motorola's behalf. But don't think you're alone. All we can do at this point is hope and pray that 2.3.4 SFB is released, or someone comes up with a way to load an earlier bootloader that will allow SBF'ing the earlier firmwares.

Droid 2 Fracais
jamesdmx - This thread is about bricked Droid2's (Not Droid2 Global) as a result of trying to "SBF" 2.3.4 Droid2's to an earlier firmware version. In the future, you should create a new thread, in the correct Sub-Forum, as your message is much more likely to gain attention this way, and you are for sure to get better results.

But since I'm such a nice guy, here's what you would do to change the language:

Click the menu button (the bottom right grey square that has an arrow on it)
Go to Settings. It looks like a grey circle gear.
Go to Language and Keyboard. This is 12th option from top and has an "A" icon beside it.
Go to Select Locale. It is the first option.
Unfortunately the Droid2 (at least the one I have) only gives me English and Spanish as language options. Maybe your Droid2 Global will give you the French option.

If it does not, unfortunately at this point, my suggestion would be to look into a custom ROM that has French loaded into it.

My next suggestion would be to start a new thread about this, in the right Sub-Thread "Droid 2 Global General" (URL: Be sure to include what version ROM is in your phone, etc, so that the Droid2 Global people can better help you.

Whatever you do, though, don't do like me and cook a Droid2 because you didn't do your research before throwing files at your phone.

Lightbulb D2.37 Bootloader
And while I am on this thread, I will throw some ideas out to you guys. Who knows, maybe together we can figure out the "missing pieces" to restoring our phones without the 2.3.4 firmware.

Somewhere in my search, I was able to obtain the D2.35 bootloader in SBF Format. It flashed successfully to my phone.

The good news is, my bricked Droid2 is at D2.35 bootloader. The bad news, however, is that it still will not take the stock or 2.3.3 Gingerbread firmware.

Also, while goofing around, I discovered that the bootloader D2.37 was actually sent down as part of the Gingerbread 2.3.3 update, as the Droid2 I picked up yesterday has 2.3.3 and D2.37 as the bootloader. Since 2.3.3 and 2.3.4, theoretically, share the same bootloader, I don't know why it would refuse to accept the 2.3.3 firmware.

I think there's an "extra piece" of code that has been sent down in 2.3.4 that is superseding the bootloader from proper behavior. Then again, I don't know! But when you add all the facts together, I'm a complete Droid Noob, and I'm sure everything I have posted is stuff all of you are probably already aware of.

With this information in mind, such as successfully rolling the bootloader back to D2.35, maybe there is an "older" bootloader that can be SBF'd to the phone that will allow SBF Flash restriction to be unshackled. I don't know if there is older code than D2.35 out there, as I did not spend the time looking.

PS---The "attachment"?? Just for the LULZ. And yes, it was pretty cool! And I can't wait to do this to my "bricked" Droid2!
