    If you get stuck with the M, go to Verizon Store

    Last night when I got the 2.2 update on my X, I got stuck with the M during reboot. I took the battery out for a while as I cleared my SD Card of the previous update.zip file, thinking that was the problem. Today durind the day I somehow got stuck with the M again without even rebooting the phone.

    I just got off the phone with a tech at Verizon Wireless and he told me that this was an issue with this update and that I need to take the phone into a Verizon Wireless store so they can Flash 2.1 back to it (this version of 2.1 has "pieces" of 2.2 in it to prevent this issue) then pull the 2.2 back down. He said there is also a patch coming out in a week or two to fix this and other issues.

    If you get Verizon to flash your phone back to 2.1 PLEASE do the Android community a big favor and do not try the 2.2 update again until you talk with Birdman or another Android developer. If true this flash from Verizon might hold key files the developers are looking for. PM me or a moderator and we can hook you up with the right people. Thanks in advance!

    Well, that was a wasted trip. The guy at the Verizon store had no clue was the Tech was talking about. I even called another Verizon store and they said that there was no flash back to 2.1. So, now they are going to send me another X.

    Problem is that I have read that many people are having this issue so I wonder if my new one is gonna have the same problem. Some people may not even know they have this issue until they have to reboot the phone and get stuck on M.

    I was gonna use RSD Lite to flash back to 2.1 but I heard if you do that with the official version that it will brick the phone.

    Wonder how long it will take them to come up with a fix for this.

    Well, as soon as I seen the OTA 2.2 update was out I took my leaked version back down to the stock 2.1 with rsd lite. Then from this point soon as it loaded I checked for updates and it got the new 2.2 update and then I rooted it with the droid 2 method.

    So if you think it will brick that's not true at least not in my case.

    Once you OTA you can not use the 2.1sbf or you will brick. So in the OP's case yes he will brick his phone.

    There is a solution now for those who have not tried the 2.1 sbf after the OTA from Team Black Hat.

    Why is it that people need to make dumb comments, if you can't help or have any clue on what I am referring to then do a little more research. Glad you got another chance to up your post count though.

    Kenny have you rebooted since you have been running 2.2, some people don't have a problem until they do.
