    Same type of problem

    I acquired a phone off craigslist that wont boot. I was pretty sure I could fix it. I can get the bootloader and battery status to come up but the phone isn't recognized by adb or rsd. In my car, when I plug it in it auto turns on but only to the logo. Volume keys will not put me in the recovery mode.

    There was a trick a few tried and I did those, power and home till logo, but logo only comes on if it is plugged in to the car...sometimes the comp.

    When I plug to the comp the screen stays off and the green light comes on. I did do the camera volume power and it comes up and says battery low cannot program and bootloader 30.04. The thing is that the battery may be low but Verizon put in a good battery and it wouldn't power on for them.

    Any ideas?

    If you can charge the battery somehow you could try flashing an sbf. Can't get you a link right now because I'm on my phone but Google "how to sbf droid x" and you'll find a guide.

    will it not charge the battery from the wall with the battery in? and the phone never shows in the comp so I cant flash an sbf i thought...i can buy another battery and an external charger but I am not sure that this is the issue since verizon tried a good battery and the guy used his wifes droid x2 battery with not change...just wont boot past logo...guy didnt seem to know anything about flashing so i doubt he bricked it...im somewhat familiar with this phone, was running miui and liberty on my husbands and a friend of ours...

    why when i plug up the phone does it show the logo? no battery meter...

    You can't charge the battery unless you can boot into the OS. You flash the sbf from the bootloader so if you can get the battery charged you can flash it.

    Ok, after some searching, I'm thinging its possible that I went too far back in sbf files. being I bought this phone broken, I didn't know what version software it was on. I had a DROID x before and simply went back to the version I knew worked with a rom we used before.

    I am going to try the 612 version...blindly...I wish someone was able to tell me if there was another way

    No dice as of yet...flashed the. 612 twice and it completes, and reboots the phone but it never boots up, just stays at the logo and the rsd says to manually power up the phone...

    have not been able to get the phone into recovery mode to factory reset or anything.

    gonna flash once more and then just wait to see what someone might have in mind to do

    Did you SBF .621 using RSD Lite? After a successful SBF you need to do a factory reset to get the phone to boot. From a powered off state hold Home and Power until you get a screen with an Android and a triangle. At that screen press both volume keys simultaneously. Then perform the factory reset. Use volume keys to scroll and Power to select.

    I have tried to do that a hundred times...its either my buttons are broke or there is no factory recovery anymore...it absolutely won't go there to do it...I have asked and looked for a way to do it through adb but the phone never gets recognized ...it doesn't say device not found...it just stays blank...attached devices and blank

    My x did this the night before the Bionic came out. I tried everything, couldn't get into recovery either. I sent it to MOTO under factory warranty, and they sent me a new phone, which I sold to help pay for the Bionic.

    OK...the buttons have to be mapped incorrectly becsuse only God knows what combination I used to see the beautiful triangle and DROID...however, I got to recovery...wiped data factory restore, didn't want to tell it to reboot but I did cuz thats all I knew to do, and bam...stuck at logo again!

    I flashed this last time in linux the. 604...I am gonna do the .612 again and play button pusher again to try ...any ideas? This phone definitely has sat long enough to see the DROID eye at least...

    OMG!!! I have a booted up DROID x ...in safe mode..?!

    This is the thing...the combo I did to get to recovery was home and power BUT!!! IT STAYS AT THE LOGO...so I started pushing buttons
    ....

    Menu, camera and volume down got me to system recovery.

    BUT!! then I wiped and it still stalled....so I started after about 5 minutes of the logo, I pushed the same combo and nothing changed...then I pushed the same combo but instead of camera I pushed search...placebo? Maybe but I got the DROID eye baby!! When it booted to activation I ran to an outlet to keep the battery alive and swapped my number to it.

    Then when it when to the launcher it says safe mode....but it works...all my accounts, activated, wifi and all.

    So, my question ...if anyone is reading...is do I restart and pray it start without safe mode? Or leave well enough alone...

    Will it play games and work as a wifi tablet for me or does safe mode restrict the usage?

    Hope my drama helps someone not give up! Haha
