    Hey um I was about to update my droid x to the gingerbread firmware but I had a low battery and it cut off in the middle of it and I tried to reboot it but im stuck in bootloop. I held down the power and home key, once the triangle came I pressed the two volume button and wiped the data and hit reboot after that but its still not working. What do I do?

    ok let the battery charge for a while without doing anything. you're probably going to have to sbf and you want a full battery for that.

    i can do both. look through the 5th link in my signature. it has a great tutorial. it's a daunting task your first time but it's really not all that difficult. i have walked several people through it already today and everybody did fine. after you read through that link i can answer any questions you have (hopefully)

    I didn't know the X COULD charge like that. My bad. :)

    Still, for emergency purposes, knowing how to do that is a Good Thing. :)
