    Had a DX, runing OTA 2.2. Rooted Deodexed Boostrapped (flashed several ROMS and themes prior to this). Installed a ROM thru ROM manager and am now stuck at the M. phone won't boot back into clockwork recovery were all the backup are stored I can't get into adb at all. Should I be calling verizon at this point?

    Which ROM did you try installing from RM that landed you in the bootloop?

    IT WORKS!!!!!MY X IS ALIVE!!!!!!!dancedroiddancedroiddancedroid thank you for the link. Works brilliantly. That's one kick in the junk to Moto. I would rather donate to the devs then ever give moto another penny

    How did you go to PC mode if your stuck in boot M? I heard that you go to the stock recovery and then start up RSDlite and start flashing SPF? Can you confirm this?

    Locked bootloader is the cause of his problem, and reason that there are almost no good solutions out there.
    It's doubtful that Moto will stop locking their phones, which makes me sad to say that my DroidX will likely be my last Moto phone/product I'll purchase. If there's a device out there that is more open than what moto provides, I'd buy it even if it meant giving up a sexier screen/camera/etc.

    Same thing happened to me too. I installed the Zap ROM and it went smooth. However, I messed up on the part when I installed the 928 deodex theme using ROM manager....which was a big mistake. I was stuck at the M and had to pull battery. Once I did that, the phone did boot. However, it doesn't look the same anymore.

    After the boot, all the bloatware came back, which wasn't there before. I had to manually uninstall all of it. However, I still had root, the 928 theme was installed and deodexized. But my facebook is no longer linked to my phone contact.

    I tried reinstalling the Zap Rom again thru the Rom manager, which was the same way I did the first time and was successful. However, the 2nd time around had me stuck at the M and I had to pull the battery again.

    I'm probabily going to try to install another ROM to start off clean this weekend and go from there.

    More open than Moto..... You mean like the G2..... Oh wait.
    So you are basically stuck with Samsung and Bing!!!

    Just get the vPhone in January, I'm sure it will be "open".

    You have to power up into the bootloader. Hold down power, the volume down button, and the camera button. It will be a black screen with some writing in white. RSD should find your phone in this state and then you can flash the file
