    Heres the deal, I let my friend root my Droid X, within an hour of my phone being rooted I decided to go crazy and search up a bunch of tutorials and stuff on how to download cool themes and all that. I tried downloading this one theme and it got my phone stuck in the Motorola reboot logo and it won't turn on. So I decided to take it to Verizon and tell them my effed up story and they couldn't even fix my phone and make it turn on, so I finally got my replacement Droid X and now I want to sell the broken one. Heres the thing though, I see people sell their broken Droid X's on ebay for like $100 but none of them are broken rooted Droid Xs then cant turn on. So is there anyway I can sell this piece of crap, if so how much and what should I say in the description?dancedroid

    I mean if the tutorials are easy, then sure, cuz before bringing the phone to Verizon I tried a bunch of random stuff to have it running again and nothing worked, factory reset, flashing, nothing.

    Since you got a replacement...shouldnt you ought to send the "broken" one back to Verizon? Or did you pay out of pocket at full retail for a replacement?

    Well, in that case, pardon me for saying it this way...but, you would be an idiot for selling it "broken" when it "should" be able to be fixed with a bit of time, RSD Lite and a Full SBF file. Atleast then, if you get it back functional, you can sell it for more...:)

    There are numerous people here on DF that can give you the guidance you need to get it back working...

    You might be able to keep the phone....but is the ESN still good? Meaning...if you get it working again can it still be.used on the network? Or has the phone been blacklisted as if it was a stolen/ lost phone.

    Even if you did want to sell on ebay just be honest in your discription. Give details. You can say exactally what happened and whats going on with it. Strongly advise buyers that you give no guarantee that it will be fixable. As far as price I've seen ones bricked and with broken screens selling for alittle over 100.And also make sure the esn is still good. Because its one thing to sell something that someone could fix and another to sell something not worth fixing because it wont be usable on Verizon.

    Even if the esn is bad, any android phone makes for a great wifi device.

    First, watch the language we have a family friendly forum. I've fixed your post. And yes, of course you have to turn it into Verizon. Did you think this was going to be a windfall?

    They should have sent you a label with your replacement phone. Do you still have the box? You put the old phone in there, call FedEx and have them pick it up for you.

    Bull, I call stolen. Verizon doesn't say "Keep it, its useless". My DX stopped powering on and was a brick. Wasn't the battery either and they still wanted it.
