    So a few weeks ago my sister's dinc's charge port went bad and she was sent a replacement. The replacement phone was stuck in a boot loop which I initially thought was due to overheating because if you would leave it off for a few hours you would be able to boot the phone without issues for about 10 minutes before it would restart and then never make it past the first screen. Playing around with it I decided to leave the bootloader open and while thats open the phone will run indefinitely until the battery runs dry. What does this sound like to you? She went to the store and they had no idea they said they could mail another new phone or she qualified for an upgrade and she decided to do that and got a droid 2 instead :p In any case we still have the bootloop droid and I'd kinda like to get it working if possible just for the hell of it. I kinda ruled out the overheating idea, and I don't think its the roaming deal because I managed to *228 it and update everything.

    I am having the same Issue but with a Droid 2 Global phone.

    I am having the same issue as well. I am stuck in a boot loop where the Boot Animation just blinks occasionally and never actually moves or advances past that screen. I have not tested leaving it off for a few hours and then turning it back on.This would solve my issue i think cause then I could flash back to my Backup using "Droid 2 Bootstrap" but not if I can't get to the home screen to launch it.

    I believe you need a SBF file but I'm not sure what it does, how exactly you use it, or where to find it. Or if there is a different SBF file for each phone. if anyone can help that would be great!!!

    Thanks guys and God bless.
