    I was trying to format my SDCard because I had too much on it and it was going really slow. I formatted it under the recovery menu (for rooted droids) and it didn't do anything. So like a dumb*** I was, I formatted everything in the partitions menu part of the recovery; boot, system, data, cache, sdcard, sd-ext. Now it won't boot anymore and it stays at the M logo, the motorola sign. I found out that I didn't unmount my sdcard (was copying stuff to computer before) and rebooted in recovery and tried to format it but it didn't do anything, so it resulted into a severe regret. :'(
    All I can do is go to the recovery menu.

    PLEASE HELP ME! I'LL BE WILLING TO TRY ANYTHING! I LOVE MY DROID A LOT AND I REALLY HOPE TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE AGAIN! I'LL BE THE HAPPIEST GUY IN THE WORLD IF YOU HELPED ME!!

    Please don't cross post. If you start a thread in the wrong section just ask for it to be moved.


    You should have a nandroid backup. Just restore it.

    ClockworkMod Recovery v2.5.0.1
    Couldn't Open directory.
    No files found.

    For both restore and advanced restore.

    What you did was wipe out almost everything on your phone and sdcard. You mentioned that you were copying stuff to your computer, did you get the whole contents of your sdcard copied?

    And this is because you have erased everything on your sdcard, but at least you can boot into recovery. But you're going to have to make sure you can keep a charged battery to continue. And then I have two solutions below based on your answer to my question. For each solution you have to boot into CMRecovery, then go to the partitions menu, and select "mount /sdcard".

    If the answer to the above was yes, plug it into your computer and take the latest working backup from your computer at /clockworkmod/backup/[whatever you named this]directory and with your computer create on your sdcard this folder structure: clockworkmod/backup/ and copy the above directory here. Then you should be able to do a complete nandroid restore using clockworkmod recovery.

    If the answer was no, then you can just re-install the same rom you last were running via clockworkmod by downloading it to your computer, and copying it to your sdcard. Once that is done, go ahead and unplug your phone, go and "Unmount /sdcard" and then find and select install rom from sdcard, select the rom and let it rip. Once that is done, you should be able to reboot your phone via the CMR menu and you should at least have a working phone.

    good luck
