    Caution Brick Thrower

    Someone is out there with an upgrade.zip file supposedly for froyo. Well it apears to brick your phone. I attempted to use it on my phone (not Knowing) Now I cant get past the motorola screen.

    Go into recovery. Wipe the data and clear the cache. You'll be fine. You get there the same way that you installed your update on your phone.

    Who and where was the file?

    Pull your battery, press and hold the X key while powering up. The phone should boot into the recovery (Clockwork/SPR/RZR). Restore your latest backup or re-install the last rom you put on your phone, or any rom that is still on your Sdcard.

    RE

    If you have a unlocked bootloader is it even possible to brick your phone? I have a droid x and there is no way to brick it only if you install a file leaked update that can unlock it to update it, if that goes wrong then you are beeped.

    The phone is not bricked unless you can't power it on at all. This is not a bricked phone, people misuse this terminology frequently.

    One time I did try to actually make a phone out of a brick but apparently people don't want a 12 pound phone in their pocket. Psssh bunch of babies.......
    Anytime someone dares me to walk a mile in their shoes I do it! Because, hey free shoes and I am now a mile away from that person!

    Reallly? Could you root it and overclock it? You could use it for doing curls from time to time.
