    Battery is dead. Plug it into the wall charger for about an hour or 2.

    One of the main causes of bootlooping is a dead battery. Because it first allowed you to get to the M, then barely sprecovery, now wont turn on at all. The battery is getting weak. I suggest you get a battery widget because your batter does not go yellow in the notification bar until it hits 30%, and that is way to low to be flashing roms. I recommend flashing a rom at 60% battery or more.

    Letting it charge all night didn't work, I checked periodically as I woke up throughout the night and nothing changed it was just continuously to loop from the "M" screen, then droid, then the red eye but nothing changed

    I have the same problem. I tried upgrading from AdamZ 5.0.1 to his newest one, and it's stuck at the M screen. I've pulled the battery once. I'm afraid I bricked my Droid I just bought
