DROID X Gift Released Last Night, Download While You Can

To all rooted Droid X owners, we just wanted to make you aware of a gift that was received into the community last night that should be found immediately before it disappears forever.  This is a gift that can save your phone should you run into any sort of major issue while flashing a ROM, theme or any other hack.  Yes, we are talking about the 2.2 SBF file.

We won’t be posting links to it, but trust me when I say that you shouldn’t have any trouble finding it at this time.  It will likely be pulled from the world very soon, so I suggest you jump on this immediately.

Oh and you’ll need this tool in order to use it.

Please do not post links to it in the comments.  Thanks everyone!

    You don’t have much choice. If you’re on 2.2 you shouldn’t have SBFed to 2.1. Now you can try to SBF to the original 2.2 again and it should work

    I honestly believe they are purposely not releasing enough devices to meet demand just to build hype. Sort of like Nintendo did with the Wii…… Generally, we tend to want things more if they are hard to come by. This is just my theory, though

    When I heard Phoxus gift again, for some reason I thought it was going to be a 2.2 SBF. You guys rock! Thanks for everything

    Droid X has finally got its Froyo update a few days ago, but it didn’t come without problems. For some users, everything is fine, while others experience all sorts of issues. One of the issue is related to an audio bug.

    I suppose I’ve bricked my phone for the first time trying to save it. I am stuck in the bootloader after trying to apply the sbf file using RSD Lite. It failed, multiple times.

  • Dxxx

    I hate to be that guy…but gotta remind everyone to scan downloaded files. A “trojan” was piggybacked in my download. I blame motorola for trying to sabotage us. It's inevitable moto…we'll ALWAYS find a way!

  • Marquell1

    was the file called rsdlite?

  • EPC-DX

    Kellex! i installed the SBF file last night and it said a 100% but was all the way done and my usb came out!!! after rebooting it stripped superuser from my phone i didn't have blackglass no theme nothing! i still have everything as far as apps & files on my x except superuser and it says i need to root… i rooted exactly how i did last time with sdk and at the very end it says unable to root. i cant boot into recovery or anything! at least my phone still works but i need superuser access to restore. any help would be appreciated. after work today im going to try and root agin or maybe try different methods… would it be possible to wipe everything off the phone and try from scratch.

    So, I suppose I've bricked my phone for the first time trying to save it. I am stuck in the bootloader after trying to apply the sbf file using RSD Lite. It failed, multiple times.

  • jag28co

    I downloaded from multiple sites and they have different file size. 434MB, 245MB(ZIP) and I read somewhere that its supposed to be 455MB. How can I tell its the real file.

  • AznEngr

    Funny, downloaded the SBF quicker on my Droid X than my laptop at work. I was averaging 1.3kb per sec at my desk. Finished the download using Big Red's network in 20 minutes.

  • ericsorensen

    So, if I'm on the leaked version – (2.3.9.MB810), I can load this SBF file and get up to date with that last OTA update that I can't get because I jumped on the leak early? Just checking. Sounds a lot easier than going back to the 2.1 then upgrading from there.

    • R Rod1984

      can any one answer this for sure??? im in the same boat?

      • ericsorensen

        My guess is the answer is an obvious”yes”. Why should anybody bother to answer such a silly question?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000723233001 Michael Welborn

    As we speak, this one file is being scattered across hundreds of different file hosting sites as well as torrents by thousands of people (including me ^_^).

    Good luck getting rid of it, Moto! There aren't enough C&Ds in the world to stop us now! Ha Ha

    (I think I get too caught up in this)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=591569613 Balthazar Ruster

    There should still be a heavily seeded torrent on TPB if anyone still can't find it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000723233001 Michael Welborn

      There are; That's where I got it from. Its a pain to find though.

    Please “like this”.

    • Hater McHaterson

      why are the file sizes different from the one over at MyDroidWorld?

      • kellex

        Zipped and compressed.

        • k1cks

          Rootzwiki says it is 2.3.13
          Is this right? I thought OTA was 2.3.15

    • Zero

      Why does my works internet filter tell me your link isn't accessible because it's categorized as “sex” LoL. I still liked the post. =)

  • Dmota25

    Why is everyone so scared? Motorola cant do anything to any site for having the link.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000723233001 Michael Welborn

      They can C&D you for perpetuating an illegal file.

      • Coaster36

        C&D?

        I Don't Believe That Because You Can Still Download The 2.0.1 SBF File For The D1.

        thanks i found it..lol

  • Timoh

    Thanks for the heads up Kellex. Definitely easy to find, even in non torrent form.

  • Zsld0423

    just downloaded, many thanks for letting this get out :D

  • Djspikezz

    Now this SBF takes you to 2.2 OTA Release?? Cause if it does, there's no easy way to root the phone right? I still use the 2.1 sbf, cause I NEVER downloaded that 2.2 OTA. I'm using 989 rom froyo 2.2 deodexed … so if I have or ever have problems I still can actully use the 2.1 SBF and re-root… but using this SBF, how would you get root back? Besides Using the SDK/Tools? Windows 7 64bit doesn't seem to like SDK/Tools for rooting, doesn't ever list my device no matter what I have done.

    • Djspikezz

      I should say, there's not real easy way (one button root) right now for this SBF/froyo 2.3.15 right?

      • kellex

        This method works just fine but is SDK: http://www.droid-life.com/2010/09/22/how-to-root-droid-x-running-official-android-2-2/

        Took all of 45 seconds for me. :)

        • Droidxfroyo

          thanks i had tried it before and it never worked then decided to wait but finally tried again and it was easy

        • Djspikezz

          Thanks Kellex… I'll have to play with this a bit then. Where I'd come into problems was when I'd type “adb devices” it wouldn't show that my device was there, even though I had it connected. I'm guessing this solves the issue? I read in XDA forums many people having the same problem. I could be behind, I've been rooted since early August now. Still love being able to play with my phone and test stuff with the security of a SBF and knowing I can Root :).

          • Livin2Bfree

            No reason Win 7 64bit shouldn't work with SDK. I've been rooting devices using 64bit Win 7 following the same instructions posted by Kellex with no troubles at all.

            One thing to check tho is to make sure you see the debug mode icon in your notification bar before trying to do adb devices. If it does not display change the USB mode to charge only and then it should pop up and adb devices should see it.

          • Btrbver2

            I rooted using a 1-click from the XDA forums on Win7 x64. The thing you need to do is- and do this in order, plug in your phone in PC mode with debugging OFF. Safely remove and then plug back in with debugging on. For some reason, ADB drivers aren't initialized properly if you go for it all at once.

            I also, prior to rooting, installed the latest moto driver package. At the end of the day, it's as much black magic as a “proper” sequence, but you should be fine if you follow the forums and do a little searching.

  • Rain_king46

    Every DX owner must be downloading this thing. Its going super slow.

  • Rain_king46

    Read before you post people. Lets not get Kellex in trouble.

  • http://twitter.com/Pucuck Nicholas Ringhiser

    I downloaded it last night. There are some Android forums that have links still up to the torrent file.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=25001493 Hank Godwin

    I posted a link to it in the previous post but it was immediately deleted for some odd reason…

      i'm pretty sure it states pretty clearly NOT to post links on the comments….

      • iknowthingz

        Hank, what's your problem? You were told not to post links. Bastard!!!

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=25001493 Hank Godwin

          Forgive me for not reading the rules on the dozens of different websites that I read on a daily basis. It's almost like I don't have the time to do that or something?

          • http://perpetualn00b.tumblr.com quiklives

            Not rules on the website, dude, it SAYS IT IN THE POST.

            It's not even a TL;DR situation as it is a really short post.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=25001493 Hank Godwin

            As these are not links, they should be fine (if not, I guess you better create some more rules!):MyDroidWorldRootzwiki

            There, how’s that?

            This is the one time I wish I was a moderator. Chill Hank!

            Even a dumbass like me found it without your help. Just for fun/irony I even used Bing… :P

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=25001493 Hank Godwin

            Congrats! However, multiple people have asked where to find it or said they were unable to find it. I’m not responsible for other people’s inability to search the internet, but I am glad to help them out with something so simple.

          • Rain_king46

            All ya gotta read is the post that you are responding to bro.

          Can someone explain to me what this file is and what it does? Im new.

  • Mikejs78

    Come on Kellex! You're letting a little thing like a Moto C&D order stop you from putting up the links? What kind of hacker are you! :)

      • Anonymous

        a smart one too..

        I wonder if Moto will try and track down the guy that leaked the file.. On XDA the leaker pretty much gave everyone a minute to minute update as to when he was going to upload, etc. Kinda careless if u as me.
