    It is very hard to "brick" an android phone. You most likely are just bootlooping.

    here is an example of a fix:

    Droid X: 2.3.32 Full SBF

    look up what sbf's are. and then find the according one. someone with an x with fill in after me.

    Define bricked. :)

    Bootlooping? Stuck at the bootloader? Rebooting into recovery every time? Won't power on?

    What model phone do you have? Because your stats say Droid and your talking about D2 or DX files.

    I have a Droid X. My phone is stuck on a screen that says:

    Bootloader
    30.04
    Err:A5,70,00,00,23

    Battery OK
    OK to Program
    Connect USB
    Data Cable

    I have tried using RSD lite 4.8. RSD lite recognizes the phone. I have tried flashing two .sbf files, but they failed.
    VZR_MB810_2.3.15_1FF_01.sbf
    VZW_A855_ESD56_QSC6085BP_C_01[1].3E.01P_SW_UPDATE_03.sbf


    Please advise. Thanks.

    I was at 2.3.15. I was rooted and running Simply Stunning ROM.I think that answers your question. If not, let me know

    I have a Mac with VMWare, so I go to Windows 7 to do the RSD lite work. I sometimes wonder if that is a problem. Also, my phone is now sometimes flashing a low battery message even though it remains connected to a power source. Please help. I love this phone.

    You were attempting to update to 2.3.340? Did you step up to 2.3.320 first?

    No I did not. I went directly to the 2.3.34. What can I do to fix this?

    That's the problem. That step was in the instructions and is mandatory. As such, a 2.3.320 full SBF might just keep your phone from paperweight status.

    TBH Patches: 2.3.340-System, Baseband, 2.3.340-Kernel, Bootloader

    Make sure you're following those instructions after you flash the .320 SBF so you don't have any further problems. :)

    The 2.3.30 did not flash on RSD. I got the following response with the RSD and "Happy Holidays," Phone waiting for re-enumeration: failed. Do I have a paperweight???

    Do you have USB 2.0 ports on that computer?

    Can we converse about this issue? I need answers and you may have them. I need to have a functioning phone soon. I can not afford to be without my droid x. Thanks

    I asked about USB 2.0 because a lack of those is the number one cause of the failure you indicated. Number two is failure to run RSD Lite as an administrator, but I'd assumed you'd done that already because it's rare that RSD Lite will start without Admin access.

    I'm trying to find something for you or someone with more experience with the X than I have to help you out. Give me a few minutes.

    Okay, two things come to mind -- what version of Windows were you running on bootcamp? And do you have any access to a Windows PC?

    I am running Windows 7 on VMWare. I tried RSD lite on Windows XP and it isn't recognizing the Droid. I will try to get to a friend's PC tomorrow at lunch time and try that. I believe that she is running Windows 7 also.

    My phone is now flashing "Low battery, Cannot program" despite the fact that I have been keeping in the dock. It should be fully charged, yet I am getting this message. This is looking pretty grim. Any and all ideas are appreciated. Thanks for all your help.

    The phone cannot charge in recovery or the bootloader. You will need to either modify a USB cable to force the phone to think the battery is charge or, preferably, charge the battery in another phone and borrow a battery.

    Was there a problem installing the drivers on the Windows XP install?

    I can provide instructions on how to modify that USB cable if you have to do that. Hopefully the friend's computer will recognize the Droid and work for you to flash the right SBF. :)

    I would like those the instruction for modifying the USB, if only for information sake. I have been delayed in getting to the other computer due to work emergencies, so I may have to wait til tomorrow. Again, I really appreciate all your suggestions and feedback.

    Credit to csealspr for posting this and credit to the original poster from whom he found this.

    NOTE: I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR DAMAGE DONE TO ANY PHONE, BATTERY, ETC. FOLLOW THESE STEPS WITH CAUTION TO AVOID RISK OF DAMAGE.

    1. Take your cable and cut off one of the ends, leaving a standard USB plug at the opposite end to plug into your computer.

    2. Now you need to strip about and inch of the wire off until you get to the core where you should see 4 colored wires (red, black, white, and green). The colors don't really matter and they may vary, just as long as you can see a red wire and a black wire.

    3. Strip off about a quarter inch of the rubber sleeving on the red and black cables, exposing the actual metal wire.

    4. Twist the metal strands of each of the wires a couple of times so that all of the wires from the black cable are together and all of the wires from the red cable are together. This is just to make sure that you don't create a short circuit.

    5. Here's where it gets a little tricky. You are going to use this cable to make the phone think the battery is fully charged, when in fact you will just be powering the phone using the power from the USB port. Pull out the battery on your phone and find the 4 exposed metal slots (the battery terminals).

    6. Each of the far terminals should be labeled with a plus (+) or a minus (-). What you need to do is put exposed leads on the red wire up to the positive terminal and the leads of the black wire up to the negative terminal.
