right or just putting the battery in turns the phone on so if i need to reboot use adb or just a battery pull
Well I just did this on my phone to get to the bootloader WITHOUT holding the power button down.
1. With the phone completely turned off (shutdown). Open the sliding keyboard and hold up on the d-pad.
2. Plug your phone into the power cable, while holding up on the d-pad
3. The phone is in the bootloader and ready to flash an sbf.
Should work for the OP.
the phone is always on as long as the batter is in it so i need to pull the battery then replace it holding up on D-pad but it never goes to bootloader i think bootloader is damaged. it will not go with or without the power cord plugged in
You don't need to go through all of the trouble of trying to unroot your device if it has a problem. My last rooted Droid had some issues with its screen and I just went to Verizon to show the reps the problem and within a couple of days, I received a new Droid as a replacement and shipped back my broken one. Also, a friend of mine had problems with his Droid's keyboard when some of the letters wouldn't be recognized and although he had a custom rom on his phone, he was able to exchange it without charge and didn't run into any problems. I remember that I was worried about having a rooted phone at first but it never ended up being a problem.
If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

I had a broken 'up' volume key and had to do a factory reset from my settings menu since I couldn't access their bootloader.... I sent it back that way and they never did say anything .......
