    My phone was stuck on the M boot screen.

    I SBF'ed it and it executed completely now it's still stuck on the M screen. Is this phone bricked for good?

    Any other options?

    SBF again?

    Stuck! haha

    Thanks for your help

    Try to get into stock recovery by pulling the battery, holding down the power and home buttons until you see a little Android. Then press the search button. Select factory data reset and also do a cache wipe. Then reboot and see what happens.

    Won't let me get into the stock recovery... only to the boatloader or the M screen. No idea why

    Power+Home goes straight to the M

    Chance you had the wrong SBF file? Did you check the md5 before SBF'ing? (usually included)

    I didn't check the md5, maybe ill look for another sbf. I just used the one that associated with the boatloader version 30.04

    Checking into a new SBF, thanks for the tip

    I would sbf again and try a different file. I had a similar situation before and it was because of a bad file

    Find a 2.3.340 Verizon sbf file. Shadow 2.3.340 is just the system file and wont work, FYI. I found out the hard way on that

    Also, make sure you have the most current version of RSDLite, usually if your version is too old it won't finish the process, but it's just another thing to be careful about.

    Well this sucks,

    I got the most current version 4.8, and latest SBF and I'm still stuck at the M, looks like I will be on my way to VZW soon :(

    Just not happy because my phone is in great condition, and they are going to give me a crappy refub.

    Thanks a ton. I tried their auto-update feature on 4.8 and it said I had the most current version, that's my fault for trusting a program over my own research. Lucky you were here for the rescue, I will let you know how it goes.

    If I remember correctly, let it sit there and do it's thing. It may take a little while for it to boot up too.

    Latest Update:

    Tried three different SBF's.

    Tried the new RSD lite.

    It keeps going all the way though but at 100% executed. and it tells me to manually power the phone on but the phone is already on and stuck at the M :icon_evil:

    I've had that same exact problem. The only fix was to call verizon and get CLNR sent to me.

    Not sure what caused it, since I sbf'd it multiple times with the same program and sbf before. I also downloaded a few more sbf's, new drivers, uninstall/reinstall RSD, battery pulls and everything else i could think of.

    Try that but don't let the battery run down too low.

    For a foolproof sbf, you can always make a Linux boot CD. Something is wrong though, if you can't get into recovery.

    Pull the SD card out then flash, if it sits at the M unhooking the cord and try a battery pull. I also don't care to go to the vzwireless store.

    when it is stuck at the boot logo, I just hold down the home key and power key at the same time. Try it again. Once you get into the stock recovery do a factory reset. That is what you need to aim for.

    That happened to my Droid X. I went into a Verizon store and they did a master reset and it was ok after that.

    I had the same problem with my phone. I couldn't get the exclamation screen to come up by holding power and home.I started button mashing out if frustration and it popped up. I got it to factory reset and the phone loaded up but the home button volume up button and the power butto. Were the only ones that worked. I tried to restart the phone again and there waited the damn m logo. I button mashed again, and now the battery icon came up after about 20 resets. Not sure what I'll try next if my genius button mashing tactic didn't work.
