    Hello to anyone still here!

    I used the Universal Unroot app to unroot my phone and then uninstalled all my "root apps" - before I unfroze the bloatware that I froze with Titanium BU. I've tried to re-root but no go; I also read that trying to do a Factory Reset without that bloatware on my Droid X is a good way to brick my phone.
    I'm on 2.3.3, 4.5.602.MB810. Verizon.

    Any suggestions? I'd go either way - reroot or Factory Reset...

    Thanks to anybody that's still around...

    I had the same issue when I flashed my DX, I had to uninstall the main apps, then download them again, but TB was stored on my SD card so the backup was painless.
    Once I made the call; *22898 and was reactivated, all was good.
    Root was done, apps worked, essentially, nothing 'died' from my self-induced issues.
    I still do not know what the blue triangle represented on reboot, but the VZW reflash made it disappear.
    I too have 2.4.3 / 4.5.621.MB810.verizon.en.us, Build; 4.5.1_57_DX8-51

    Not having a manual made dissecting the icons a bit rough, and THANKS for the roaming icon tidbit, so many differing icons to denote the same operation gets confusing.
    Even not knowing what the icon represented, did not scare me, I assumed it was harmless and was.
