1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I accepted the update this morning, and now it won't go past the DROID logo. I just keeps going back to the start of the DROID logo animation and looping. Verizon says, "out of warranty," and won't help but did suggest there was a way to connect it to a PC and undo the update.

    I'm certainly no newbie to modifying phones via a USB cable, having owned several Motorola and LG phones that required some sort of tweaking to get desired results, but I've never messed with Android.

    I already have the latest Motorola driver, but what other program do I need to work with this system?

    Flash the sbf and bam you're done. The other program is rsd lite

    Which SBF do you recommend I use, and what information should I back up from the phone?

    There's nothing you can backup in a bootloop.

    You can try battery pull then power+x to get into stock recovery and then wipe data/factory reset.

    That worked perfectly. If it weren't for the fact that I'm almost done with this DROID, I would take steps to prevent this from happening again. But my next phone may be Android-based, so I'll be sure to learn more about it from the start.

    Anyway, thanks a lot! Now I can put this archaic enV2 back in the cabinet. :)
