    Okay, here's what happened. I was out yesterday and it was really hot. I don't know if this is what did it, but yeah. Umm I was out with some friends and I noticed that it was in the bootloader. I don't know how, but it was. I was not really happy. It happened before, and I had no trouble getting it out of the loop and getting back to the O.S. But now, it won't do anything. I tried multiple .sbf files through RSD Lite v5.6 Muti-Flash / Multi-Flex Tool. The last two flashes I used the VZW_A855_FRG83G_QSC6085BP_C_01.43.01P_SW_UPDATE.sbf And no luck. I got an error code (0x70BE) During switching to BP Pass Through Mode. I got into the original recovery and tried to do a factory rest. But it says E: open dev and fails to do whatever this means. E:Reached max number of retries, giving up... E:Failed to init the engine! aux_status = 1. Bp clear failed. Please help this newbie.

    This may sound dumb, but is your d-pad stuck in the "up" position?

    No, haha. If it were, it would just boot to the bootloader, sorry, I didn't put that in the original post. It shows the Motorola Logo on startup. But it won't go to the boot animation. I have ClockWorkMod recovery installed. I hate SPRecovery.

    I have flashed Clockworkmod onto it. Then I restored the previous ROM I had before all this happened. But I will check it out.

    What recovery? I'd try to get a "pass" from rsd lite, then go from there. But we'll help you regardless

    It passed. I flashed ClockWorkMod recovery. What should I do now? Should I flash a ROM of choice or a specified ROM from you?
