I have searched all over the internet and find all of these forums that talk about using rsd light. Well, all the links to downloading rsd light are outdated or gone or corrupted. I have used rsd light in the past. Phone was rooted for 2 years. Somehow now it only shows the M logo. when i hook to usb it says
ok to program
I have no backups. I need instructions on how to fix this so i can use it. This devise is no longer on a cell warranty nor does it get 3g service. Its a backup phone and a mp3 player.
Before you get all that happy, try pulling the battery for about a minute or two. Then power it back up and see if it will boot into the OS instead of the bootloader.
Otherwise I have everything you need in my sig.
Yeah I was reading this and it is pretty much impossible to brick the OG. as long as you can get the 'M' logo and the bootloader you can usually save the phone. I would also recommend taking the battery out for a time and then dropping it back in. If that doesn't work you can get through everything using the bootloader. There are some good tutorials on this site and others. Best of luck
Little more info please
Could you maybe suggest a search keyword or even put up a link?

Have you tried the steps listed in this thread? See post #3. The OP hasn't been back, we can only assume it's fixed.
I am unable to get to bootloader. (power and Down on the Dpad.)
I can get clockworkMod Recovery v18.104.22.168 to show but i have no backups. I found a file that was supposed to be the original droid file. It said to rename to update .zip. Well i have tried that and it errors every time saying error sdcard ....... (status 7)
How to i start from scratch? Droid only shows M logo ....... I have to get this to work today as my droid 3 has just died.... they are sending one in the mail.... so I have to get this to work today. Please help
Its actually dpad UP+Power not DOWN+Power
Where can i find another ROM to try to flash that might get passed status 7?
Peter Alfonso's website has some. For Droid OG. look for Sholes in the download section.
Or you can PM me and I will send you one.
