    so here is my story:

    i used rom manager to flash the droid 2 clockworkmod recovery. used droid 2 bootstrap to go into clockwork. did the backup and wiped cache, user data, battery stats, and dalvik so that i could flash my new rom, Droid Pro Fission Vanilla. did that, rebooted, got stuck on the bootlogo. so i went back to clockwork via power + x and did a restore. it worked perfectly, everything back to normal. (i wiped everything before the restore as well)

    so, like an insane person, i tried it again. everything the same, except i made a new backup to flash back to. to my surprise, the restore did not take. i was not able to go into clockwork OR stock recovery (via power + r + m). i have tried many a battery pull, to no avail.

    so, what do?

    I would say its time to sbf. Are you familiar with the process?

    i am not. i have been reading about it, and it seems complicated. i use a linux distro (ubuntu lucid) but i have access to a win7 computer if needed. do you have a link to a tutorial or some pointers?

    Actually Linux is MUCH easier than windows. I'll dig up a Linux link for you but in the mean time, turn your phone off and pull the battery to save power and download the sbf file for the droid pro. I think there is a sticky thread in the droid pro hacks section that has links and info.

    thank you very much. i will try this and report back here with results. i am just relieved that the solution wasn't automatically "place phone on papers, papers will not blow away!" XD

    Its been a while but I believe if you unzip it there will be a .sbf file inside

    okay. i fear this has now achieved paperweight status. :( my phone will not turn on whatsoever without being connected to a power source. the charge port led comes on when attached to my computer but nothing else.

    It sounds like a battery issue. You need a charged battery.

    There are chargers you can purchase that the BP6X snaps into itself.

    Also, this is the same battery in the Original Droid. If you know someone with one, swap it in.

    update: i found out how to manually enter the bootloader. however, my battery is low, and it apparently does not charge while it is in stuck-in-bootlogo-forever mode. is there a way i could manually give the battery a jump?

    oh okay. @guidot: sorry, i did not see your posts before my last update. if there is no free way to jump my battery, i can always shell out for that charger. but my question is this... IS there a free way?

    You might be able to go to Verizon and have them charge it, I have heard of a few people doing that but they will definitely ask you questions about why. As guidot said its the same battery from the og droid, droid 2, and droid 2 global so if you have a friend with one of those phones then they can get you a charged battery.

    thank you both for your help so far. i got the phone to stay off whilst plugged in, so i hope that means it will charge now. i will leave it in this state for a few hours, then try the bootloader again. if anyone has any further tips regarding the original situation or sbf-ing, they would not be unwelcome. :)

    Its probably not going yo charge but its worth a shot. Most likely you're going to need another means to charge it.
