    Did I Brick my phone?

    So I downloaded Easyroot, rooted my phone, then folowed the steps of Droidreview on youtube. I got all the way to the part of the 1st reboot recovery, it goes through the installation screen, restarts then shows "Droid" and the red eye. It's been this way for 20min, I took out the battery over and over and it still won't go through. Someone please help me fix this because I don't want to buy a Droid2 just to replace my 1st droid. I have too much stuff on there.
    IS easyroot bad or anything, I really need help on how to fix this.

    You mean take the battery out then press power and d-pad? Or Take the battery out, put it back in, etc.

    [edit] It says Boot loader
    2c.7c

    Battery OK
    OK to program
    Transfer Mod: USB

    What does this mean?

    well yea turn it off by battery pull. put it back in, and when holding power button, also hold up on the dpad.

    then use SBF to flash back to stock

    So I did everything the guide told me, but when it had to reboot again it stayed on the red eye all over. Now it wont turn on and says cannot program because the battery is too low, bur ir's been on the computer all night with the white light on. How has it not charged?!

    If it does come back on am I supposed to wipe data/reset it too? will all my contacts, pictures, games, etc go away.

    Use the wall charger, for a few hours. If the battery is low it won't charge well thru usb

    What is your goal to be rooted and running a custom Rom?

    Were you on 2.2 before you started? If so how did you get there, OTA or manual install?

    Through OTA. I want to root my phone to wireless tether my ps3, and the ROMS are cool too. I used easyroot and it told me my phone was rooted. It gave me a list of things to download, but not in order. Busybox is something that didn't want to download. I tried running Cyanogen aswell.

    And should I take out the sd card through this entire process? I really don't wanna lose whats on their.

    Ok well the safest way, at the moment, for you to get what you want is:

    Click link 3 in my sig. Do option 1, then 4, then 2
    Pay attention to your phone during options 4 and 2, as soon as it starts to reboot itself hold up on the dpad, it should boot back into the bootloader screen and finish up the install and you will get a PASS.

    After options 1, 4 and 2 have been completed you should be at stock 2.0.1 with SPRecovery. Now all you have to do is install a custom Rom and you'll be rooted.

    Note- This process will wipe your phone, contacts are saved on the google cloud and will resync after signing into you google account, pics are saved on sdcard and will not be touched, and after installing a 2.2 rooted Rom your apps will resync as well.

    Note2- If at any point you get prompted to install the 2.2 OTA, DO NOT DO IT.

    Good luck.

    If I cant get in my phone though, how will I apply the custom rom. Is there someway I can download it from the computer, put in on my sd card, then upload it from there. What ROM are you using?
