    hello~
    so the Droid 4 is dead. i took it to verizon, we did the factory reset, and now it won't even turn on. they are sending me a replacement phone. apparently i signed up for extended warranty so there is no charge. in the meantime, i had my old Droid 2 (R2D2 version) reactivated. it has a cracked screen, but i can live with that for a few days!
    thanks again for your help!
    :eek:)

    Sounds like you were having a hardware issue with your power button itself. In that when you pressed it to wake the phone, the phone read it as you were pressing and HOLDING the button down, which eventually causes a reboot. Hopefully replacing the phone solves it and they give you one without a busted power button.

    Have you tried removing the sd card and then booting it up in Safe Mode. Also try booting the device up without the sim card and without both and see if it allows it to boot up successfully.

    Mine continues to boot, never getting to a menu or different screen. It just gets that reactor looking video going constantly. I hold the power and volume down buttons and it goes dark, then the Motorola logo, then the reactor video and that is it
