  1. When I click start in RSD it always fails :-/ I’ve tried multiple times.

    “Failed flashing process. Failed flashing process (0x7100); phone connected.”

    • make sure you have proper moto drivers installed… also make sure that you did not unzip the sbf file.. also try redownloading the sbf file.. you may also try using a different version of rsdlite.. also try using a different pc if thats not working for you… alot of people have trouble with rsdlite on windows 7 pcs try a vista or xp

      • I have the same issue now after trying to SBF after loading .595/not-rooted a few weeks ago. I had SBFed before in order to get .595, and was using the same process. I checked and reloaded all drivers and even tried RSD 4.9. It goes through the entire process and ends with FAILED, and now reads corrupt…
        I am using a PC with XP…

      • I tried it again on the first computer it failed on last time, and it worked this time. Back to .340 and a couple of boot loops later it’s stock again.
        I may take a breather before trying the .596 GB 2 part…

      • it show the same problem my computer is a windows 7and i need help so please help me out i need a 64 sbf file

      • what problem are you having… the sbf file is the same for all versions of windows… you may need the 64bit motorola drivers? check the menu there is a download link in the “quick downloads” section

      • yeah i download the sbf file but it ask me to select a program to open it so i choose rsf lite 4.8 its that rite

    • scratch that. Got a novel idea, thought i’d post for anyone else having this issue. I ran in compatibility mode WinXP 32-bit SP3

      I am currently running Win7Prox64

      • Good idea….didn’t read the whole post like a moron but now that its on their twice perhaps it will indeed help?

    • seems to be working fine. It’s on 2.2.1 I was on 2.2 but VZW wouldnt do a warranty for it not updating because the phone has changed accounts. I think it was stuck because he probably rooted it at some point (I never did) but I did see the superuser permissions on it when I got it. Now I wait for GB… if it doesnt update I guess I’ll have to find the sbf 🙂

      Thanks for your help

  2. so i was able to follow all of your steps but when I try to turn on the phone it just goes back to the android guy with the triangle and the !…
    What am i missing

  3. I tried to sbf back to froyo but it said internal error when i tried starting the sbf process. Is there something wrong with my phone? Is it mucked up? Its in a bootloop. Tried everything.

    • “internal error”? Was ur phone in bootloader when u started the process? To get to bootloader pull battery, (hold power+volumedown+camera) then try to sbf again make sure u have enough juice

  4. Did u pull the battery during the sbf?… Have u tried sbfing again… Also did u try booting into sgock recovery and wiping data? To boot into stock recovery pull battery turn on phone by holding (power+home) when android gug and ! Comes up hit search button and select wipe data factory reset? Try wiping data in stock before sbfing again

  5. My phone was working properly after doing an sbf. It has been a few days and today I went to turn the phone on and it is stuck at the screen with the Motorola M. What do I do? It will not let me boot into stock recovery either.

  6. If anyone is willing to give me some direction, I successfully flashed the dxgbrooted.zip (only to realize i needed to revert to stock for the updated GB version). Long story short, I tried to use maderstock.zip to revert. It didn’t work and so my last option is RSD Lite. I’m unable to get the .sbf file to be recognized and whenever I do, I get the 0x7100 error. Im running 32 bit Vista and RSDLite v 4.8. If there’s something I am missing, please share. I would rather be stupid than broke 😀

  7. I just did another sbf. Got to the part where it says to manually power up the phone and now the phone is stuck with the Motorola M on the screen. What do I do from here? I hope I do not have a brick!

  8. I dont think so. The phone has been running fine for a few days. It was after I powered down today that it started doing this.

  9. SHANE YOU R THE F***ING MAN.. i got my droid x from stock .595 sbf to stock froyo ready for the OTA update gingerbread with your help thanks again…….

    • Persistence pays off to fully rooted .596. Working Great. TY DMX for your videos, and pushing the limits.

  10. For Windows 7 users with it not seeing your droid in RSDLite 4.8 right click on the executable and choose run as administrator and run in compatibility mode for XP SP3.

    Worked for me running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.


  11. i did this but when it reboots from rsd light it just keeps looping ….Progress says 100% executed and result in process its asking me to “please manually power up this phone”. dont know what to do i tried reflashing it and keeps doing the same thing..

  12. Ok, I followed all the steps…everything seems to have gone okay, but now my phone is getting no signal for whatever reason….

  13. I just wanted to say thank you soooooo much for your great and awesome videos…you helped me soooooo much. I’d give you a big sloppy kiss right now if I could lol=)

  14. I’m kinda a noob when it comes to this whole sbf thing. I’m running the OTA 596 right now. Once I sbf to stock froyo. Do I root the stock froyo than install the prerooted 596 over it? Sorry for the questions. I just don’t wanna brick my device. Thank you.

  15. Team BlackCat has made an sbf file for GB (4.5.596)[non-rooted/full stock] and I have two questions about this.

    1) Can I root this with the newest GingerBreak?
    2) It says that the file is supercompressed and that I will need 7zip to unzip it. After it unzips, may I sbf the file?

  16. My device does not show up on the list. I have the latest MotoDrivers installed and the latest RSD Lite installed

  17. I have a droid x that is stuck on the M screen and when i try and use the RSD Lite it gives me a (0x7100) fail code. I have the drivers installed and I also have it running in Win XP sp3 mode. Is there anything else I need to do?

  18. SO, here is the whole story. I purchased a phone off craigslist and it was rooted. I followed the steps to use the Z4 unrooting, but i didnt like that everytime I rebooted my phone the clockworkrecovery came up. So, I looked for ways to remove it. I downloaded Root explorer and deleted the hijack file and the logwrapper file and then renamed the logwapper.bin file to logwrapper. The phone seemed to be ok but when i reset the phone I have been stuck on the M screen. When I try to use the RSD lite method to reset my phone it give me the (0x7100) Fail message. I have downloaded the VRZ_MB810 2.3.34_1FF_01.sbf file mulitiple time and still on luck. I have also factory wipe and reset the phone and still no luck. If their is any other way the u guys can help please let me know. Let I seen the Android version was on 2.2.1 but it was rooted. THANKS.

  19. Thank you for your informative and helpful site! I did the SBF according to your instructions and everything worked as you explained! The reason I went back to the old software is because Gingerbread would not recognize my Windows 7 or Mac like it did on the original software. I was hoping going back would fix it but it did not. It still only stays connected through the USB port for no longer than a minute. Could I simply have bad hardwear?

  20. This is something that happened to me and the fix I did to resolve it.
    I was on GB 2.3 prerooted deodexed. My computer is running windows 7 64 bit with the latest driver installed.
    I plugged the phone in with rsd lite already running, choose the zip file and started the flash. Everything was going smooth until it came to “please manually reboot your phone” or something like that. Anyways the phone was boot looped on the red logo so I unplugged it and pulled the battery. Boot into stock recovery (press the home button+power buttton until you see the android guy and the triangle then press the search button). Now I did a factory wipe twice and rebooted the phone. Took about 5 minutes to load up and now your into 2.2 ready to activate your phone. Hope this helps anyone.

  21. I have windows 7 and it is bringing up that:
    “Failed flashing process. Failed flashing process (0×7100); phone connected.”
    error in the RSD Lite. Chad posted:

    “For Windows 7 users with it not seeing your droid in RSDLite 4.8 right click on the executable and choose run as administrator and run in compatibility mode for XP SP3.”
    What does this mean???

  22. so i used RSD lite and did everything you told me but when it finished my phone just rebooted and had me re activate it but i no longer have gingerbread so i can root it. right? did i do something wrong within these steps? im kinda a noob at this stuff. my phone works but it is being very slow. please help

  23. when it reboots from rsd light it just keeps looping ….Progress says 100% executed and result in process its asking me to “please manually power up this phone” What do I do from here?

  24. Followed directions to a “T”, and it worked great! Now rooted running Z4root, also using Barnacle wireless tether right now to type this comment!

    Many thanks, jeff

  25. RSD Lite can’t read sbf… I open sbf file inside RSD lite and the file describtion is empty, and the start button is greyed out.

    What should I do, please help. Just learned to root my phone last night and this morning it updated to 2.3.3…

  26. i dont know if this will help any of yall out. But if you try to sbf it and it puts you into boot loop. Just factory reset and it will finish the sbf for you and then just download bootstrap and install the 2 part patch.
