    x2 stuck in a boot loop

    Friend got a new Droid x2. Path that got us here:

    1. rooted using Gingerbreak

    2. installed Titanium Backup, and removed "unused" programs

    3. contacts now force closes

    4. titanium backup won't restore missing system apps

    5a. get copy of x2 /app/ directory from here:
    Droid X2 system dump, wallpapers, ringtones - Android Forums
    5b. copied all files from .zip above into a new directory
    5c. copied all files from my droid x2s /app/ directory into directory from above, overwriting any that already exist
    5d. copy the combined files back to my x2's /app/ directory

    6. reboot... again and again and again

    <edit>
    7. tried a hard reset with no change
    </edit>


    I'm guessing it's a permissions issue... but is there any way out of it? other than waiting for a .sbf?

    When booting the x2 in 'fastboot' mode, it shows up in Windows as "mot single adb interface", however, "adb devices" doesn't list any...

    Did you delete or freeze "unused" apps?

    "Uninstall"ed... I know (now)... Freeze is the way to go.

    Try booting into recovery and factory resetting.

    Probably won't work but it doesn't hurt to try.

    Other than that you're looking at adb thru recovery mode, finding everything you borked and manually resetting the permissions. Which I might add may not be possible (not sure if you can get adb working this way on this device) it might be salvageable, but unless factory reset works, it won't be easy.

    Sent from my DROID X2

    EDIT: I found you a hail mary type play, again no idea if it'll work but you screwed up pretty bad so I'm just trying to help.

    Thanks for the help... Sadly, we even tried the hail mary last night. We've been unable to connect using adb... I think we're stuck until a SBF file is available. He's using his og droid for now.

    Progress? I guess we are able to (attempt to) run an update.zip file... but the update.zip file I found online saying it was for an x2 was actually for the original droid X.

    Does anyone think it's possible to create my own update.zip file for the x2 that resets permissions on the files I copied over?

    Yeah you are stuck till SBF is leaked. ROM's I dont think will even help at this point without CWM
    Go to work, send your kids to school, follow fashion, act normal, walk on the pavement, watch t.v., save for your old age, obey the law, don't ask questions, and repeat after me.....I am free.

    You copied files from the sd card to your system apps folder and didn't set permissions before rebooting? Smh. A factory reset really should fix that though.

    Just take it back to verizon. They won't be able to boot it to see that it's rooted so you should be fine.

    If you can manage to get ADB (try recovery key on boot, maybe?), I bet you it's the permissions in your /system/app path. When you write files to this path, you have to remember to chmod them to 644 (user/owner read+write, group read, others read).
