    Moto Droid stuck at "M" logo! Searched but can't find fix...

    I have a stock Motorola Droid with all of the updates that download automatically. Tonight my phone was working fine, I checked the time... then 5 minutes later the screen wasn't on BUT the backlight and keyboard light was. I took the battery out to see if that would fix it but now the only thing that pops up is the "M" logo, which stays to the left side of the screen with the keyboard lights functioning. I searched for the issue and attempted to get to the boot page but it will not go past the "M" logo. I tried a "hard reset" but it still will not move past the M logo... the only thing the screen ever shows is the "M" logo off to the left side.

    Basically... I am experiencing the same problems as this thread except my phone will not leave the "M" logo at all...

    Any and all help is appreciated.

    Happy holidays

    Boot into recovery. Clear the cache. Then reboot

    It will not boot into recovery. It does not do anything except display the "M" logo off to the left hand side of the screen.

    Are you saying that when you reboot holding down the "x" key on your keyboard it still gets stuck on the M?

    That is exactly the issue.

    Okay, one of two things:

    One, your battery is too low to boot. Charge the battery for a while and see if you can get it to boot.

    Two, something in the phone SERIOUSLY borked and you'll have to SBF from the bootloader.

    Pull the battery, wait 30 seconds, put it back in and boot into the bootloader. Tell me what it says.

    I charged the phone for a while and the screen went completely black. The blue light was glowing in the corner like there was a message on handscent.

    I attempted to enter into recovery, but my phone continued to display the off centered "M" logo that I have previously mentioned.

    Seems as if there may be an issue between the software and display?

    Bootloader is not the same as recovery.

    Droid 1? Battery pull, wait 30 seconds, reinsert, press and hold up on the d-pad, power phone up.

    What does the bootloader say?

    Okay. You need to flash SBF. This will wipe everything off the phone but should restore functionality.

    Something in the system's memory got corrupted. This is rare but does happen from time to time.

    If you are unfamiliar with the procedure, this link will help you. I can provide links to the files needed. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...correctly.html
