    Lightbulb Howto: Revert back to 2.1(Eclair) from 2.2(FroYo)

    Okay so this was in another topic but I thought I would do a short little howto for anyone that needs it. The information found in this post was originally posted by Telexen (in this post)

    In order to return back to 2.1 on your Droid X you need to do the following three steps
    1. You need to load the SBF onto your phone.

    2. After applying the SBF reboot your phone but put your phone into recovery mode.(hold volume down and home button and press the power button)

    3. Factory Reset your phone.

    Once the factory reset completes your phone should boot back into 2.1

    The reason for doing this would be if you lost root because a step was missed or someone went wrong.
    OR you just feel that you don't want FroYo yet.

    Disclaimer: I claim no responsibility for anything that happens to your phone, or you, during this process.

    Thanks, Hope this helps anyone that needs it,
    Yurdle

    I'm gonna have to do this, methinks. I lost root when going to FroYo (no clue why - I copied my su file just like I was supposed to, and it's STILL there in my xbin folder even today). I've not yet done an SBF restore so I need to learn how to do that, but I've had the file tucked away for a rainy day, just in case.

    It's executing as I speak. Keep in mind when loading the SBF using RSD Lite that the phone is in bootloader... (Power Off phone, Then hold Camera, Volume Down, and Power Button) Then connect USB cable, make sure RSD Lite reads the phone is connected, then click Start.

    Edit //

    Well I'm back to 2.1. My first attempt failed at 99%..but the second attempt worked. Because of the factory reset, I had to reactivate the phone at startup and lost all my prior applications. Just to confirm:
