Thanks to the author, for helping me undo my f-up. This write up is great.
However, I have read through this and several other similar threads but cannot find any help with my problem. I was using a new File managing program and messed up my cut/paste with a file rename and then deleted the file, and so I lost my build.prop file. I was having no luck rebooting my phone, it would hang after the motorola "M" power up screen. So I flashed my phone with RSD lite 4.8 (4.9 wouldn't install on my laptop) and the 2.3.32 SBF the flash went well, no errors and I caught the reboot to get to the bootloader and got the "PASS" message. everything on my phone appears to be saved but I am roaming, have no data or phone service and cant make a call to my VM. Havnt tried calling an actual phone since its 1 am on monday night.
The about phone menu has my phone # as 0000000965 and the WiFi and BlueTooth MAC address' are "unavalible"
Any help is appreciated.
It's a Droid X with Verizon.
NM, found another walk through for n00bs like me. Dial *228 to reprogram
