    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. :)
