    The whole story is that i was trying to flash sourcery 2.2 it bootlooped so i unrooted and flashed back to stock. i rerooted and tried to flash another rom and now its stuck at the red eye and i cannot get into recovery. I am confused because i have never had anything remotely close to this happen before and i have flashed roms a ton between this phone and others.

    What did you use to root?
    What recovery system are your using?
    Did you wipe data and cache before installing the new rom? More important --- make a backup before you wipe data and cache.

    soup or root for root
    rom manager/ cwm recovery
    nandroid backup
    Not sure what the deal is with it but i have rooted, unrooted, and rerooted a ton and never had an issue. if i could get into recovery i could fix this. i haven't been able to find anything anywhere with a situation and fix like this. The only thing i can find is people that can still get into recovery and well that makes it easy.
    thanks for the reply.

    That's a great idea. Then instead of being stuck at the red eye, you're stuck at the M logo. :D

    Nevermind you have a og droid. Best thing is an sbf, also make sure your battery is charged.

    You could also try sbf'ing clockwork on and then loading a backup.

    The clockwork sbf is listed in RaidZero's recovery thread in his section.
