    Yeah I know there's a button combo for safe mode, I had to boot it once. I don't remember what it was but it might be worth looking up to see if it's also a random combo booting that and not the normal one, like you said it was doing with the recovery.

    This is a really strange issue and you have far more patience than I to have stuck with it this long haha. I dunno what other advice to give but do post back here with any updates, this is interesting.

    Its definitely not the normal one cuz I tried it...I'm still hoping for it because I bought it to fix it ...I'm weird I know...I only paid 20 for it but that's a cheap toy...lol

    You know of a way to bypass the activation screen? I reset it hoping to clear it again and definitely don't want the hassle of putting it on my 4g line and swapping again...that was 30 mins n verizon...no fun

    I'm gonna try and flash the Linux fix again now that I figured out how to boot it and try and get root...maybe there is a work around and I can flash a rom by some miracle

    To bypass the activation just tap all four corners going clockwise starting with the top left. Hope you can get it working the way you want it, keep updating me here

    Thanks, did it and bam...I was able to run the .
    .604 and then root successfully ...I'm impatiently waiting for it to boot...I will probably have to do the button combo again but...if I have root it hopefully can all me to push some files and cwm ..?? U think? I'm not fluent in adb but I can manage. Is there a way around safe mode? No one seems to have gotten around it except with the normal reboot...mine seems to only boot if I boot with the combo.

    It is mad crazy that my phone just sits till I do the combo...OK it booted into safe mode..and super user is there..!! So if safe mode won't allow me to install apps then do u know a way to flash a rom to Beat this?

    I'm not sure if the files for CWM can be pushed via ADB although I don't really see why they couldn't. The only way you can flash a ROM is with CWM but once you do get a ROM flashed you'll have a whole new problem on your hands: Is it going to boot a custom ROM with no safe mode?

    True, adb says I'm rooted but I can't push bootstrap recovery into system/apps...says denied...read only..so I'm still planning to take for diagnostic checks...doesn't make any sense why the buttons are so different unless there is water or something wrong inside. I let it sit at logo screen for over 30 mins with a full battery just to see if it would boot normal...nothing, so I pushed the buttons and it automatically jumps right into the boot animation and loads in safe mode perfectly. Only the menu button doesn't work in safe mode. Weird

    ok, hopefully someone can look at this logcat and help me...I cannot boot at all past the logo screen unless i do a button combo for the phone to go to safemode. it doesnt go to safemode with the normal process. I have tried to get into the sys via adb however even though im rooted, safemode wont allow permission to copy bootstrap recovery to system/app/.

    I would love some help from someone who wont question whether or not I know how to use rsd and all the other noob questions...I am fully aware of how to use rsd and i am positive that my phone is a droid x and yes i am able to use linux. I have been getting questions like that...

    I sbfed to the .621 and then used the linux disk to go to milestone and get root. My phone asked for root permission while i was in adb and i allowed it however im assuming that safemode wont allow it to truly work...

    if it could be hardware...where would i begin troubleshooting the hardware??

    Thanks in advance for your help My main concern is not getting bootstrap onto the phone, it is to get the phone to boot out of safemode. I have let the phone go from 100% to 0% waiting on it to reboot so I am sure that it is not me being impatient. I got it to boot into safemode by accident because I was actually trying to get it to boot into sys recovery to wipe after a sbf but the phone doesn't go to recovery normally either. I have to push and hold menu, camera, and volume down to get the triangle and then i can push the vol buttons together to get the recovery screen and wipe. however it never boots...unless i push the menu, search, and vol down buttons to get it to boot into safemode which...like i said, was discovered by accident. I have been keeping notes because this phone is def not normal.


    On a side note, the phone is not activated because of these issues,.i am using my droid 4.

    Safemode shouldn't prevent you from pushing files to the device via ADB, it should just prevent any third party apps from running. Unfortunately this also makes what I was going to suggest impossible- install development.apk and make sure that the setting to grant SU permissions to both apps and ADB was checked off. I took a look at your aLogcat entries and didn't see anything unusual there, but that's not surprising since aLogcat wouldn't have started until the phone was fully booted into safemode anyway. This is by far the strangest issue I've seen with a Droid X.

    I believe it's a hardware issue since it wasn't fixed by an SBF because that's essentially a complete wipe of the device, which would clear any messed up pieces of software. As far as where you'd begin troubleshooting the hardware though, I don't know.

    OK, well that's where I will turn then...I will start with the hardware...I have a local place that says they do free diagnostics on phones. I will update when I get word from them.

    Btw...what is the development.apk u spoke of...haven't seen that before...

    If safe mode doesn't keep me from pushing to the system then why when I go to adb shell does it say adb device not found. And when I don't go into shell it says permission denied even though I allowed it through super user. I went into shell to check that it had root...it says $ so i typed su and then got a # . Then the device it saw before is mia...I'm not real fluent in the commands but I follow directions if u ever think of something.

    Thanks so much for your time!,

    Development.apk is just an app with some tools that are useful for devs, one of them is changing what you'll allow SU for. I'm not really familiar with safemode in combination with ADB so I can't help you there, ADB has always worked flawlessly for me on both of my devices. It could be a driver issue, make sure you have the latest drivers for your phone installed on your computer, because that could easily be the reason ADB isn't recognizing it properly.

    Definitely let us know what the phone diagnostic people say
