    Need some help

    Did the ota install of froyo from 2.1 rooted, when rebooting (install was done unattended) phone was left with the motorola M symbol and appeared functional, was able to make a call. Couldnt enter recovery mode, same M and tried to navigate it blindly with no luck (assuming it was entered with M present).

    In the past did do to the leaked froyo (1st one) and had the same thing happen but eventually got it to boot. At the time went back to 2.1 through bootloader procedure sbf install. So i tried it again, this time I get error codes after sbf installs and is stuck in boot loader. any help please?

    Do you still have the update zip on your sd card? Some people were having issues doing the over the air with that still on the sd card.

    Im having the same issue. the bootloader says MEM_MAP blank, with error codes a5,70,70,00,1f. I removed the SD card completely.

    I cant recall if the update was in, but I tried the sbf recovery with it removed after the fail and no change. This has worked before a few times when playing with the first froyo leak, Im guessing something changed on the OTA version that doesnt allow sbf recovery? My bootloader says 30.03 also

    note: on win7 32bit, made sure to use admin rights too

    exacally, after the M symbol failure i did sbf recovery and it got even worse with the described problem. Now i dont know if i should go to a verizon store and have them void warranty even though the OTA failure prompted me to do it

    Not sure, it seems like the OTA changed something so we can't go back to 2.1.

    agree, im sure someone will figure it out soon but till then will suck without a phone. I work on the go....

    gonna go to verizon since their ota started it, worst case i fix with the help of the guy that figures this out or pay thr $50 for my aftermarket insurance on this and get it replaced

    to me, it seems like the phone was flashed but didnt restore the software, so it has nothing to boot...
    so hoping that vzw will have something that can reload the software...other than that, i think the phone is screwed

    Until further investigation I Highly recommend not flashing the 2.1 SBF if you've updated to the official over the air 2.2 for the Droid X.

    Heed the warning.

    If someone has been clever enough to save off a copy of the OTA that will help clean this up. It's not a big deal, but having a copy of the OTA will help. I'm sure the VZW stores have an SBF of the current build and can get you back up and running. If you have the OTA file, PM me where to get it and I'll take a look at it. My DX won't receive the OTA, so I won't get it OTA.

    You guys have probably already figured this out, but they changed the signatures in everything from mbmloader forward. All your old code groups are useless now for going backwards. They were serious about this. Kudos to them for a clever chess move.

    Many of us have had the problem BEFORE the ota. All 2.2 updates cause this on some phones. Not many ppl are researching it. To get the phone to boot, remove battery for 45 secs (Yes, i must be left for quite a while. at least 30) and then put battery back in.

    Sometimes it takes more than once.

    Again, this has happened to SOME phones since the old 2.2 stuff came out weeks ago.

    Pretty sure this isn't what you've seen before. They've actually changed the signature that the HAB will recognize. If you SBF back to a prior build, where the CG's are signed with a key that is now no longer valid (to mbmloader and mbm that aren't replaced by most SBFs) then your phone is very toast as not even your CDT is valid anymore. Easily fixed by flashing the current CG's with the new, valid signatures back on - if you've got them.

    Re: errors from above posts...

    Could a simple boot into recovery and clear cache help ???Maybe there are some junk files leftover..

    No, it is:

    "Did the ota install of froyo from 2.1 rooted, when rebooting (install was done unattended) phone was left with the motorola M symbol and appeared functional...."

    I'm talking about this. You're talking about his 2nd part, which isn't really a MALfunction at all.
