    Droid X UID errors & unable to reset

    Hey,

    I've tried to Google my way to freedom on this issue but no dice. The past couple weeks my Droid X (still under manufacturer's warranty if necessary) has been glitching heavily, giving me constant force closes, infinite loop resets, and generally being useless. Eventually I started receiving errors about my UIDs being Inconsistent (followed by an epic number of force closes).

    From the research I've done the best way to fix the UID Inconsistency is a Factory Reset of the phone. So I tried that with great sadness. And failed. As soon as I attempt to reset it, the phone would restart to just like it was on July 4th (including the GPS location - I was driving that day ). I tried doing that through the software (with phone on) and through hardware (power + home). Every time it pops up with the familiar background and GPS location. I called Verizon to see if they could flash it, and they said they couldn't and that I should call their customer service to get the phone replaced. Of course that requires a phone that doesn't cut out of phone calls every 20 minutes so I can get through the hold time. That is still an option (I think), but I'd prefer to fix it myself if at all possible; I like this phone (the hardware anyway), it's shiny. I tried using the method described in this site: Linux solution to your Windows/RSD lite problems to flash the phone myself (to FroYo, using the Windows USB option). The program seemed to work, but then when I actually restarted the phone it shows the same stupid opening screen.

    I'm at my wit's end, and yes I know I can get the phone replaced, but failing that: anyone out there have any suggestions as far as resetting my un-resettable phone (or another way to deal with the UID error)?

    Thanks a ton if you do.

    Update: I've discovered that sometimes when my phone resets itself, it comes to a screen that LOOKS like a factory resetted screen ("Welcome to Droid X! Click the android to continue" or something to that effect). However, when it reaches this screen, it has a cascade of System UID Inconsistency errors that crashes the phone and resets it ad infinitum. Soo close. Please, anyone? Any ideas on the System UID Inconsistency or the resetting? It seems like my phone's state has been saved in a way that I can't wipe it... Surely there must be some way to fix though.

    Stock, yes (I haven't rooted it, I mean). I just realized I was trying to load an old sbf that might not have been compatible since I took an OTA update, trying to flash the OTA sbf (so many acronyms ) right now. Will reply if it works. (Otherwise any other ideas would be welcome.) Is rooting possible without using the phone? Not sure it's stable enough to download much of anything.

    Ooh, SW Update in Progress... That's different. More later.

    ??

    I'm nowhere near an expert but isn't RSD lite used to flash SBF files? That error was I think after the SBF was supposed to be installed, it was checking for success. Said it failed. Rebooting phone and it came back to July 4th data again.
