    It seems that unlocked bootloaders would be more open source so the files to restore or fix a developer phone are more readily available than non developer phones with locked bootloaders.

    I do know what I'm doing, bro! I might not know how to develop the root but I sure know how all this works. I been rooting and roming my phones since the Droid one. I was to impatient and just to early without being able to flash back to stock if something goes wrong.

    No one said dont learn, what we are saying is it isn't VZW or Moto's job to subsidize your learning experience.

    Back on topic, do we need to run the 'Install Recovery' from inside Safestrap first? I installed CWM from Rom Manager, but didnt get any kind of prompt for entering boot loader on startup.

    You don't use RM with Safestrap.

    I swear, you must work for Verizon or Best Buy or something, I went through your old posts, and all you seem to have been saying is how people are stupid, yet you offer no help.

    Hooks405, thanks for the tips, especially using the RAZR version...I have done a backup and will be testing it shortly by doing a recovery.

    Hey listen I am just saying its not a good idea...sorry I lashed out ....I don't work for either but I have friends that do. I def don't think people are stupid and my posts do not revolve around that so as of now I will just let it go.... most people just don't research before they do something and with the og it wasn't a big deal but with this phone it is a killer which is annoying cause other phones u can just reflash
    I hope they can get an sbf.. I am on the motorola forum and they can't seem to give any info on bootloaders or anything. I did say that when I buy a computer I get a recovery disk and when I buy a phone I should get the same.
    I hope that you don't get any further problems, maybe some day we will get a sbf and I will root to.
