    I already have the motorola usb drivers installed on my laptop..as well as rsd lite..i need an up to date sbf file to go back to stock..or is there another way to get out of bootloader? And oh yeah..the battery is low..says it wont program..is there a solution for that?

    Unfortunately you will need to charge the battery externally either with a spare battery charger or if someone you know has a droid 2 or a droid 1 (if I recall the battery is the same). And what do you mean another way to get out of the bootloader?

    I SBF'ed the phone using the "cut the USB cord method"
    which worked for me to be able to flash it back to stock..i tried to do the OTA update for gingerbread..at about 80% battery died out..and now battery said its invalid and wont charge..any suggestions? Thanks in advance

    I just did a quick search and the only place I came across this issue it ended up being the battery was now dead and needed to be replaced. Aside from that I have never done this method so I do not know what else to suggest. Either way when that message is displayed I would suggest a new/different battery.

    Sorry I just saw this now. You could always try getting the battery off of Amazon, it needs to ship but they are way cheaper. And what did they do to say that the battery was ok?

    $5 on amazon. Totally legit. A second battery has been a life saver when sbf is needed

    Ok so they put a new battery in and the phone turned on but when plugged in it would not charge at all. To me that sounds like a phone issue, did they not say anything about a replacement or something of that nature?

    As long as the full SBF ran then it is stock unrooted and you should be fine.

    Plus, they won't or shouldn't spend too much time checking to see if your rooted (unless its obvious). If you can access bootloader, I'd run the sbf again. If its possible of course

    Well right now the battery is completely dead..so it wont do anything..yesterday it went to an all black screen with a white "M" and than the screen changes and it showed a big grey empty battery icon with a big "?" In the middle of it..but right now it wont turn on for anything..all i see is a lil white light thats on the side of the charger where its plugged in cuz im trying to leave it for a few hrs just to see what it does..i wonder what went wrong after i sbf..could it be that the "cut USB cord method" fried something in the phone..like maybe the connector ports where the battery goes?
