    Droid 1 cant start recovery mode

    I am trying to start my first gen droid in recovery mode, but when I hold down X and power up my phone...it just loops on the motorola "M" and wont start in recovery mode.

    Any help?

    Rooted? Can you boot normally?

    If you can are you using rom manager?

    Did you perform an update recently?

    Are you powering it up THEN holding X?

    You're supposed to hold "x" and the power button at the same time.

    If your phone boots normally you should try rom manager first.

    Are you trying to root? Which recovery file in RSD did you use, and where and/or how exactly did it not work?

    Oops. Didn't see the not rooted part. Could be that your x key isn't working.

    Someone else had this problem today.
