    Droid X stuck in a boot loop

    Hello,

    About two or three hours ago I had flashed ApeX on my Droid. I then played around with it and liked it enough to keep, so I decided to change the string "Verizon Wireless" to something a little more desirable, so I did.
    And now I'm stuck in a boot loop, with what I suppose is the ApeX version of the droid eye (it says ANDROID) and despite all efforts, nothing has worked.
    I've tried the power + home button method and going to reformat and wipe everything (tried all the options in that menu) and none have worked. I have no idea what to do now. I would appreciate any help.

    I have a rooted Droid X
    ApeX 1.3.1 (or whatever the latest is as of today)
    Before that I had Droid stock froyo.
    Don't ask me if it's DeoDexed or whatever - as I have no idea.

    (Please excuse me if this is the category - I assumed the more knowledgeable people would be here.)

    I have no problem doing that - I backup everything (well, just my contacts, that's all I care about, the phone is three days old, I have next to nothing on it) but how exactly do I do that? A link, perhaps?

    I am assuming that since you were using apex 1.3.1 you were on system version 2.3.34? Am I correct?

    If so you can use the system sbf found http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/d...ootloader.html here.

    You will need 2 other things. A program called RSD lite, this will be loaded on your computer and you want at least version 4.8 and then the latest motorola drivers found

    Uhh, yeah. (I guess)
    I found a website showing instructions on how to install a "leaked" 2.2 sbf, is it okay to follow that website's instructions? And would I be able to just upgrade to 2.3 once installed?

    Read my previous post and make sure to read everything on rsd lite.

    Thanks a ton, I've already downloaded RSD lite and brought my phone into boot loader. I have to go pee now though, from sheer excitement. Thanks a lot, CD.

    Sadly, RSD Lite 4.6 is failing. Whenever I load the .sbf into RSD and click start I get a "Failed flashing process. Unable to retrieve initialization values from INI file. Clueless as to what to do, Google'd a bit and they all said to switch to RSD Lite 4.6... which is what I am using.

    Edit: If it matters, the .sbf I'm flashing with is named "VRZ_MB810_2.3.32_1FF_01.sbf"

    You need at least rsd 4.8, 4.6 is an older version and might be why its not working. Find 4.8 or 4.9 and try it again.
