    Exclamation I am a stupid D2G N00b, please help

    Okay well here it goes, hopefully I dont get pwn'd out of the forum.

    I have recently rooted my D2G, everything went fairly well, I was even able to play around with installing a couple ROM's (Fission/Liberty). However after deciding that I didn't care for either as they both had too many bugs to work smoothly on the D2G I simply reverted to the 2.2 OEM OS.

    Now here is where my n00bish stupidity comes in. I was aware of the risk of boot looping and/or bricking the phone, especially when booting with low battery. My D2G for some reason decided it no longer felt the need to hold battery and would only work while plugged in. Needless to say I was booting it, the charger must have sliped out during boot, thus leaving it in a boot loop.

    I am able to access the the screen with the explanation mark and the droid man (that is the correct terminology right? lol) by powering on while holding "X", and then holding the search/magnifying glass button to enter the recovery screen. I "Wipe cache partition" and then "Wipe data/factory reset" and then "Reboot system now".

    This all does absolutely nothing, it simply enters the boot loop again.

    I have searched and tried a few things but nothing is working and im growing incredibly irritated with it, I am debating spiking it like a football in the street if I cant figure it out soon. PLEASE HELP!!

    For the D2G noobs (I'm one too), I compiled a helpful thread here that should answer your questions, with helpful links.

    To OP - since you went thru Liberty, the only true way out is to flash official SBF and wipe data and cache afterwards. Follow sticky thread here on where to get SBF and how to perform the flashing.

    I know this doesn't help anything, but it is good to see that even in your frustration you still have a sense of humor! I really like to iPhone comment- too funny!

    Seriously though, I hope you were/will get your phone back soon.

    Thanks for all the input, I guess the consensus is that I will have to flash it with the SBF from TBH. I have downloaded the SBF file, and I understand that I will have to boot into bootloader mode however when i do so it flashes at me "Battery Low, Cannot Program".

    This makes sense all except that the phone has been plugged in for 24 hours and is currently plugged in while im booting . . Like i said i was having battery issues previous to the boot loop so what do I do now??

    False alarm, I found an old BP6X battery from my original Droid that has full charge and is allowing bootloader to run.

    It says "Ok to transfer, transfer mode: USB" and I have the SBF files downloaded.

    I have downloaded RSDLite version 4.5.3 because the link for version 4.9 is no longer active?
    It reads my device and I select the SBF file and click Start, it then says "Failed Flashing Process" in the status section.

    I have no idea what to do. Am I doing something wrong?

    Ironically I was JUST able to find RSDLite 4.9, it will not read my device though . . I have the most current Motorola drivers (4.9). My computer will not even recognize my phone. SO frustrated.
