After an incident involving someone forgetting to check their pockets before doing laundry, I now have a "broken" Droid sitting in front of me. For a day or so, it didn't even turn on. Eventually, reinserting the battery brought up the bootloader. I tried flashing a stock Verizon SBF, which sort of works. Booting up the phone after flashing goes back to the bootloader, but holding X brings up the recovery screen where I can install update.zip or clear data. I can definitely flash it with SBFs, but I can't get it to boot up into anything but the bootloader or the recovery screen.
The phone has already been replaced and won't have service, but I'd like to get it in somewhat functional condition, even if the screen has water splotches all over. Any suggestions?
