Hello all, new to this forum...
I bought my first Android-powered phone just over a month ago, a Droid X from Verizon, and it was all smooth-sailing up until this past Monday morning. The phone prompted me to perform a software update and me, thinking that this was commonplace and routine for a smartphone (having owned a Blackberry before this Droid), pressed yes without much thought.
The upgrade progress seemed normal and the progress bar was just about complete when a large, threatening yellow triangle with an exclamation point showed up on my screen. The phone then went black. I turned it back on and could not get past that god-forsaken bootloader screen that I'm sure we've all come to love.
Long story short, Verizon shipped me a new phone to replace the paperweight my original Droid X had become. I just received it yesterday evening and already this replacement phone is telling me to perform the same upgrade. I'm a bit terrified to authorize the upgrade a second time, fearing that this nightmare will happen all over again.
Sorry for the novel, but does anyone here have any suggestions as to how I can upgrade this phone efficiently and correctly and ensuring it won't fail? (I'm not rooting this phone or anything of that nature because I don't want to void my warranty)
