I have a problem that I have not been able to research an answer to after days of searching.
Initial problem was a broken LCD cable which cut the signal to the display completely. I'm not sure how this happened, since it's my wife's phone, but she thinks some paper slid between the display and the keyboard and cut the cable.
I purchased a new cable and installed it. The display now works, but it will only display the BP Fastboot Flash Mode screen when I press the power button. I have tried holding down both volume keys +power, one volume key +power, removing batter, replacing battery, etc. Nothing will allow me to do anything. The display reads:
BP Fasboot Flash Mode (S)
OK to Program
Secondly, in this mode my phone is unrecognizable by my PC. The PC recognizes my working Droid 3 (my phone), but will not recognize nor install the "diag interface", "mux interface", "modem interface", "nmea interface", or "tcmd interface". I have downloaded and installed the Motorola Driver Sets still to no avail.
Thirdly, the phone will not power off once it's in the BP Fastboot Mode. I have to remove the battery. When I install the battery again within 10 seconds or so it goes immediately to the BP Fastboot screen. If I wait longer to install the battery, I will have to press the power button and it will go to the BP Fastboot screen again.
Did I screw up the phone somehow in reinstalling the hardware? I do have a display now, which is good.
Is it possible to recover the system from this point?
Apparently, I need two major things:
1. The USB recognition of my phone to my PC.
2. The ability to get into AP Fastboot so that I can install an OS.
Help me, anyone, if you've got some suggestions.
