    Stuck on bootloader

    Hey guys, been having a really hairpulling experience with my Droid 2 tonight. I had been having the bug associated with the 2.3.20 Triple Threat rom available here where the dialer pad would not line up correctly, and the camera/camcorder apps where not functioning. I had been holding off on fixing this problem, but because I am going on vacation the 20th I wanted to fix the camera for pictures.

    Anyways, I had read that if you simply go into clockwork and factory restore it, then redo everything it would fix it up. After factory restoring it, my phone still had dialer issues and camera issues, so I tried again, however I also formatted the /system which someone on these forums recommended if it did not work the first time.

    Upon doing that my phone is now stuck as loading the Motorola symbol, and the only alternative function I can get is to do power+x until the android guy with the exclamation mark in a triangle and then press the physical magnifying glass on the keyboard, which takes me to one of the restore menus, where it says "E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command" . I try all the different options and non of them fix my predicament.

    I have tried waiting on the motorola boot logo for atleast 20m.

    Sorry for such a long post, been trying all night to fix this. Please give me detailed steps to fix this.

    You lost root...and possibly the system too since it was formatted (wiped). What happens if you press the search key at the recovery screen (exclamation point)?

    It brings up a recovery mode, which has the options
    "reboot system now
    applye sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition"

    I have tried all these options in the past, and while it said it was working, it didn't fix anything. It should be noted that when I try the second option, it says
    "-- Install from sdcard...
    .Finding update package...
    Verifying update package...
    ................E:failed to verify whole-file signa
    ture
    .E:signature verification failed
    ..Installation aborted.
    ....."

    Ok good, you still have the custom recovery! Let me see if Spaz33g is up, he knows more about the D2 than me. Hang tight...

    I'm in the process of downloading the current SBF file because I saw that it is necessary when you mess up your Droid 2. I also downloaded RSD Lite 4.8, however I'm unaware of how to really use them.

    I think if you formatted the system you will have to sbf. Give me a minute to get settled but wozzy prob has you covered.
