I have a Droid that has been rooted. I seem to be stuck in the Bootloader screen. The Droid was rooted using the "Rooting the Doid 1 - regardless of OS version." thread by MotoCache1.
My wife now uses the phone since I upgraded to a Droid X. Thus I am not exactly sure what happened but that "my phone broke". This is the story that I get...one day the phone was allowed to "die" by not recharging. This was a few days after she answered the "rom manager" update for Steel Droid 3.0. When she plugged it back in the wall plug and it "woke" to the bootloader screen. Then she rebooted it and it booted to the Rom and had a date of Dec 19, 1969. The phone had no signal and would not recognize network, make calls or surf Internet. She then turned it off, rebooted and it has been stuck ever since.
When I got the phone it was dead and would not allow any programming. I gave my battery to a friend with a Droid and got the battery recharged.
I can hold x when booting and get to SPRecorvery, patched by Sir PhyscoS (0.99.3b). I can wipe data, factory reset, see my previous nandoroid backups, restore, etc. The phone however every time reboots to the bootloader screen.
I then went back over the rooting steps, RDS Lite4.6, reinstalled
I went back to RDSLite 4.6 and re-install mc1_A855_1282081....as per the rooting instructions mentioned above. The phone will pass. I have tried different roms reinstalled (by mounting SD card in SPRecovery) and renamed to update.zip (thinking that file became corrupt). The phone installs the ROM and always boots back to:
Bootloader 2c.6c, Battery ok, Ok to program, Connect USB data cable.
I think it is groundhog day!
I am almost convinced that the issue can only be that the Dpad is stuck and forcing the reboot to bootloader. Any way to verify this?
