I have a Motorola Droid (A855) that I've had since 11/09.
At the time my issue first occred (2 days ago) I was running the current stable version of CyangenMod.
Whilst on the phone with a friend I dropped teh phone, picked it up, continued to talk. I realized my friend could not here what I was saying and upon looking at the screen I say the phone was rebooting.
Upon reboot I couldn't get past the SLIDE TO UNLOCK screen.
I tried several battery pulls to no avail.
I was able to use the hard keys, such as the power key, and once in that menu (reboot, plane mode, power off) I was able to access the options using the d-pad on the keyboard.
In recovery mode I tried restoring several previous back ups to no avail, and then finally tried a factory reset, still with no results.
Now I can't get past the WELCOME TO DROID TOUCH THE ANDROID TO BEGIN screen.
I'm no longer under warranyt, and even if I were my red water mark switched months ago (yay toliet).
Insurance is also not an option, as even with insurance I don't have the $ to get a new one as I just lost my job last week, so I'm trying to figure out just how to pay the bills and buy grocieries.
Also all of my PCs are running GNU/Linux so, although me obtaining a Window$ machine for a time may be possible, any suggestions not requring Windoze would be helpful.
Without a job without a phone in Detroit.
