    Angry lost recovery on Droid?!?

    **Mod- Sorry for wrong section, but I am running BB 0.5**

    Hey, I was trying to port over a theme, which went well. The only issue was the notification colors. I was following tutorial on how to change the colors, and I could not get it to work. Kept getting stuck in bootloops.

    No problem, just recover and try again. Well, this last time, I think I lost the recovery (clockwork). I hold down 'x' on my Droid on boot, but it keeps taking me to the boot animation.

    PLEEEAASE tell me I can fix this please. Helllp!!!

    Let it go ahead and boot up, then go into ROM Manager and click on Flash Alternate Recovery, then once that loads, click on Flash ClockworkMod Recovery again. By the way, I've had lots of problems with the latest recovery (2.5.0.1), so instead of that one, you might want to scroll back down to All ClockworkMod Recoveries and flash one of the older ones (I've been using 2.0.2.4 for a couple of months now without a single issue).

    EDIT: sorry, I just re-read your post and saw that you were stuck in boot loops. Have you pulled your battery before attempting to boot into recovery? If you have and you can't get into recovery and you can't boot up, then you may have to use RSD Lite.

    GLD- thanks, but I'm stuck on my boot animation. :-( Right before its supposed to boot, it goes back to the 'droid' logo then the eye. Cannot get it to boot at all. :-( Yes, I did pull battery. :-(

    OK, saw your edit. Yeah im screwed. I know I used RSD on the 1st root of my droid. So Can i get that to work while its boot looping? - looking for 'how to unbrick droid with RSD'

    Can you get into the bootloader (hold up on the DPAD while booting, or alternatively, hold the volume down and camera button at the same time)? If you can then you can use RSDLite.

    SBF to root and to unroot

    Ah Ha! Thanks forgot it used the bootloader. checking now. WOOO HOOO! GLD your the bestest! LoL


    Holding up didnt work, so I got real scared, but thanks to you, I tried the buttons (camera/volume) and am in the bootloader now.

    :-)

    Now to figure out what to do from here with RSD, I know I put 2.1 on it with it (to root), would that mess up because I'm running 2.2 now? (still looking for a tutorial) thanks!!!!!

    Yeah, that was the tutorial I was following when i screwed my Droid. :s I'm trying white text as the only thing I can think it could be would be my hex colors are wrong. Dunno how, Im putting the same in for everything, but who knows. That is why I'm going with white (FFFFFFFF) for now to test my hex characters.

    Thanks again, I'm restoring BB 0.5 w/clockwork now!

    Thanks for all your help!! Now, to the theming area to find out why I cannot change the notification text in the theme i am porting.
    Also, this theme is someone else's who isnt active much anymore. Do I need to find him and ask permission to port it? (And of course, if I post to the public, I will take no credit for it,LoL)
    Thanks again!!
