    Is the Droid X: 2.3.32 Full SBF file the one that I want to download if I'm running 2.2.1?
    Also, who should download TBH Patches: 2.3.340-System, Baseband, 2.3.340-Kernel, Bootloader? Anyone running 2.2.1?
    One last question. Is it really easy to JACK your phone using Bootstrap to make a backups? It seems as though I a have seen numerous warnings about Bootstrap...so I'm a little nervous.

    I had a Droid Incredible that I rooted, moded regularly, and unrooted (to give to my wife). So, I am not completely new to the wonderful world of hacking. But, the Droid X with the locked bootloader is a different beast.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I had
    Yes you need the full SBF for 2.3.320 and the patches which will get you to the latest 2.3.340 system version. Its best to just have all the files. Bootstrap has never caused bricked phones that I know of. Normally a bricked phone comes from people flashing the wrong SBF, which even then all you have to do is flash the correct SBF over the top and it will work.

    Thanks Droid-Xer! I really appreciate your help. I feel much better. Been reading like crazy and will continue my research. I have everything pretty much dialed as to how I'm going to back up and flash Roms. I just needed confirmation.

    No prob. I have a HOW TO use bootstrap in the Hacking Guides subforum that shows you how to use it to make backups, restore, and install ROMs. And by the way, welcome to the forums!

    OK I got a dumb question... I think.
    I have a folder on my PC and I named it Droidx recovery
    I have RSD 4.9 and the "happy holidays" zip... I used it anytime I goofed up... yeah been a couple times. I have the maderstcok file also so I can just do it from my phone in case something would happen on the road or to my usb. Now when I flash sbf via RSD it takes me back to stock... but does it take me to "i could return it back to Verizon without them seeing anything was ever done" stock? And what about the maderstcok file.. does it do the same? I heard mentioned that clockwork stays on after flashing the mader file.

    SBF will take you to complete stock, like it was never touched. Mader's zip is suppose to remove bootstrap i believe. If it doesnt then you would need to reroot, remove bootstrap and super user, then unroot
