Previously I've owned and rooted, changed ROMS on a CLIQ. I got a Droid x and hopped to Verizon to go from almost no coverage to full 3G coverage in the area I moved to. I got it on release day and rooted it the day the root was released. Today, I tried to install the 2.2 Update.zip that was leaked. I started the update.zip and it looked to be going well. Part way through the update, the phone threw an error and when I rebooted all I get is the Droid log with the eyes then it flashes to the red eye boot screen and reboots. I've wiped the cache, done a factory reset, and tried installing update.zip again from the recovery menu. I stopped by the Verizon store and they told me to use the Motorola Recovery tool online. I started it and let it run, but the battery ran out right as it was verifying the re-build of the firmware.
I have since downloaded and installed the RSD tool and the SBX image. I can't use it because when I put the phone into bootloader mode it says "Battery Low", "Cannot Program" in flashing white writing.
The screen also says CODE CORRUPT on it.
I need to know how to charge the battery so that I can try to use the RSD Lite to fix the problem. Verizon told me in the store that they will replace the phone, but I will have to wait ATLEAST a month to get another.
