    Linux solution to your Windows/RSD lite problems

    If you updated to the new 4.5.621 OTA you can not use these images to restore to 4.5.605/602/596/2.3.340
    The MX_4.5.604 version can be flashed from 4.5.621, resulting basically in a nTelos 4.5.604 Milestone X that is rootable with the included ZergRush method. You can also use the magic md5 method by phifc and bhigham here



    Don't let the word Linux scare you, this is just a cd you burn, nothing installs to your pc. Once you burn this CD you are ready to SBF flash anywhere you have a computer, no net connection needed to download any files.

    Droid X Only! Versions available for other devices: OG Droid - Droid 2 - Droid 2 Global - Droid X2

    This is an .iso file. It is a complete Linux operating system that you will download, burn to CD (or USB) then boot your pc from CD or USB, this allows your pc to reboot into a different operating system. The operating system has been preloaded with an SBF file for the DX, sbf_flash (the Linux method of SBF flashing) and a script I wrote to execute it, this makes it very simple to SBF flash your phone. As soon as you boot into the Linux OS the script will automagically start and you will be ready to flash.

    Video instructions on the process Thank you RageXmods!

    Download - 1KDStaz0.9.iso (2.3.340 FroYo)
    295mb (309,329,920 bytes)
    MD5 (1KDStaz0.9.iso) = 2f36c808ae05e914f1210bcf0ef8d33f

    Download - 1KDStaz0.9_4.5.596.iso (4.5.596 Gingerbread)
    221mb (231,735,296 bytes)
    MD5 (1KDStaz0.9_4.5.596.iso) = ff07b94f66edcc767b11b4f3c024b535

    Download - 1KDStaz_DX_4.5.602.iso (4.5.602 Gingerbread)
    221mb (231,735,296 bytes)
    MD5 (1KDStaz_DX_4.5.602.iso) = bb4bd1ff8239aa13c0be309229325750

    MD5 (1KDStaz_DX_4.5.602_root.iso) = e53c1fbea60c240b8663ecb7b1b2b191
    (This version will let you root with D3 or ZergRush method after the SBF is done, also has root only option)

    Download - 1KDStaz_DX_4.5.605.iso (4.5.605 Gingerbread)
    229mb (234,881,024 bytes)
    MD5 (1KDStaz_DX_4.5.605.iso) = 7d29849d65c4a9fb66549db9cdb40b74
    (This version will let you root with D3 or ZergRush method after the SBF is done, also has root only option)

    Download - 1KDStaz_MX_4.5.604.iso (Milestone X 4.5.604 Gingerbread)

    This is a special image. It is used for those that have taken the 4.5.621 OTA update and have lost root. This image uses the nTelos Milestone X 4.5.604 sbf file. This results in a non-Verizon system but you are able to use ZergRush (included) to root. Only use this file if you are on 4.5.621 or already on 4.5.604.
    Blur based ROMs for those who use this file available here

    Please do not put up any mirrors, link this thread, if the download links aren't working let me know.


    Live CD Instructions (Mac):
    Download 1KDStaz0.x.iso
    Use Disk Utility (built in) to burn iso file to a CD (instructions)
    Shut computer down
    Hold c key, push power and hold c untill you see the Linux OS start
    Hit enter at the yellow "boot baby... boot" screen
    You will see yellow dots for 3-5 minutes then the script will start
    Hit cancel at the sound card check

    Live CD Instructions (Windows):

    Burn iso image to a disk (Instructions, Window 7 - Vista and XP)
    Reboot PC
    Hit F12 (sometimes F8 or esc) during boot to go to boot menu (possibly google search how to boot your specific pc from CDROM)
    Select boot from CDROM
    Hit enter at the yellow "boot baby... boot" screen
    You will see yellow dots for 3-5 minutes then the script will start
    Hit cancel at the sound card check

    Live USB Instructions (Windows):
    (Instructions from pendrivelinux.com)(thanks)
    Download
    UNetBootin for Windows
    Download your favorite Linux ISO
    Double click the Unetbootin Executable to start the program

    (5) After the USB drive is done select reboot.
    (6) During boot enter the boot menu and change USB to boot first, save and reboot.
    (7) When booting from UNetbootin select SliTaz


    ________________________________________________

    You will now be in the script and ready to flash.
    The pc screen will look like this: (screen shots from the 2.3.340 version)



    Use the numbers across the top of your keyboard, not the number pad

    Once the flash completes you will see this:



    If you already use Linux as your OS of choice you can flash with your current system, grab sbf_flash and the SBF file then simply cd to where you put the files, then:
    chmod +x sbf_flash
    ./sbf_flash VRZ_MB810_2.3.34_1FF_01.sbf (if you are using the full .340 file)

    Credits:
    Credit to WugFresh for the original idea to do something like this with windows
    Credit to the SliTaz community for the perfect distro for the job
    Credit to [mbm] for the sbf_flash utility

    Thanks to the beta testers!

    Great job putting this together 1KDS! Awesome work!!

    Folks, this is the absolutely easiest way to SBF your phone to 2.3.340, whether coming back from the Gingerbread leak, or trying to get your old system to the current version, and nothing to install in Windows, it all runs from the cd!

    If you don't need to SBF, just burn this to cd and see if you can boot it up to the Linux desktop, that way you'll know you're ready in case of an emergency...I've tested this on my Win 7 32 bit desktop and it works perfectly. So anyone with a different system (XP, Vista) in either 32 or 64 bit versions, just burn the cd to test that it's booting up fine, and report back...

    Where my time is spent away from the office!
