probably not, even if it could work, you don't likely know enough about flashing SBFs
you just have to wait till someone, finds something that works

What can it hurt, his phone is already dusted. Besides, how do you ever know enough if you don't try. That's how I learned, by trail and error till I did know enough.

Here is a link some people with the droid x did. Those who could downgraded, then were able to access moto servers to find an sbf. Does anybody know how easily this could be done for the d2g? Furthermore, does anybody know of a way to edit the sbf files? If we can, we maybe be able to manipulate one so that the bootloader reads it as a newer file. Does anybody have any suggestions?

Also, if you really want to do some programming, you can go into Linux and sbf off a linux based system. It wasnt too bad.

here is the link to it, which isnt too bad. It was easier for me to do this, because I already have a Linux based system, as well as my XP and 7 machines.

Yeah, that is the problem most people have experienced when downgrading after taking the 4.5.629 update. If you took the 4.5.608 update, you can download the 4.5.608 sbf here:

and flash it
but otherwise you have to wait until somebody can get the .629 sbf, which could take 2 minutes, or 2 months, or 2 years. I really do not know. Motorolla likes to be evil and hold them. People get them by scanning moto servers and sometimes they might hit them. The 4.5.629 update fixed a lot of bugs, but to those of us that got it but did not want it, it screwed us over.

So, I have been doing some research, at this point the phone is mine, and I want to get it back up and running so I have a backup.
Anyway, I read somewhere that it MAY be possible to extract the sbf contents, put in a file for the newer bootloader, and then zip it back up without needing the contents of whatever 4.5.629 is. Essentially, one would be taking the .608 file, and updating it so that the bootloader on the phone reads it as a newer sbf, so it allows the installation. My question is this:
I already have the files extracted from the .sbf, but what file should I replace to update the bootloader. If somebody is on 4.5.629 can you send me a copy of the build.prop if possible that would be great.
Also if somebody can (AT THEIR OWN RISK) download, but not install the 4.5.629 update.zip
found in /cache/fota/update.zip
I have read that the cdt.bin file contains the bootloader update.
What I am hoping to do, again, I am no expert, but I do have some programming experience, is to give the bootloader a false sense of 4.5.629.
May be a long shot, and I would really appreciate some input before I possibly waste my time on this.

I like the way your thinking... I know someone who has tracked down the build.prop file,

here is his XDA profile

his personal email
fulvio.ac@gmail.com

He has been looking for a solution for 3 weeks or so, and someone sent him the build.prop, and is also after the default.prop anf flex version, for some reason, all to be sent to Dark Cricket

Here is the thread where all discussions have taken place

You should be able to flash with the .608 sbf only. The 608 update prevents earlier files from working. Make sure you unzip it first, then use rsdlite to flash it. It should work for the D2WE

no, the 4.5.629 update prevents going back to earlier, and there's no 4.5.629 SBF yet

I thought it was .608 that started it and the 629 really killed it. Nonetheless, you should be able to fix it with a .608 sbf flash IF you had not taken the .629 update. If that one does not work, google the 608 sbf and someone should have a working copy of it somewhere.
