    You don't hold them both at the same time. Once you see the Motorola logo, release the power button but keep holding the X button down.

    Actually you can let go of both of them when you see the motorol logo. Have you tried a battery pull yet?

    Remove the back cover and completely romove the battery for a couple seconds. Can sometimes solve bootloop issues. To clarify, are you even getting the motorola logo when you try to boot?

    Mike raises a good point. Why don't you start by telling us as much info as you can on the situation.

    ?I'm unfamiliar witth droidmod and unrooting. If you're initial plans were to install 2.1 then you shouldn't have unrooted. Have you searched the forums on rerooting? How long had your device been rooted?

    Uhhhh no.

    If it boots up go in your app drawer and see if you have supeuser permission. It's icon is a black ninja.. if you don't have that then you are not rooted

    Power down completely, open keyboard press and hold x, then press and hold power button as well until M comes up. Make sure you are holding x before you press and hold power if not won't go into recovery.
