    Ok, let me start from the beginning. I downloaded the second release of froyo from the thread posted on this forum. I wanted more than just the plain froyo UI so I downloaded and installed the DropTheme using RM from this thread: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-themes/46441-droptheme-mm-49.html#post528040
    I noticed the market wasn't working properly, and I couldn't download/update apps. So on this thread, I clicked on "bgill55'smarket update fix" under "Download DropTheme" and next to "Froyo Market Fix": http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-themes/46441-droptheme-mm.html
    From there, I downloaded the .zip and attempted to install it using RM. I was expecting it to reboot into CW and install, but it just rebooted and stayed on the "M" screen. I'm really afraid that I may have bricked my device because I am "unable to enter recovery, fastboot, or your rom" (taken from http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/632-what-root-means-stop-asking.html)
    I know I'm throwing a lot at you guys right now, but please try to understand the situation I'm in and try to help me resolve it.

    Much thanks to anyone who can help me.

    Try pulling the battery out for a few minutes, then slide the keyboard open, hold the 'X' key, then put the battery back in (while still holding 'X'). That should get you back into recovery.

    Wow. I just tried it. I can't believe that worked. Thank you so much. Now I just have the problem with downloading apps in the market. Any advice on that?

    Once again, thanks for the advice. You saved me a heart attack.

    I don't know if you read the previous posts but I fixed that problem. I was using rom manager at the time. But thanks for your concern.

    I still couldn't get into the rom manager recovery, so I flashed back to SPR and it works now. About the market issue, I'm not sure I want to delete a file from the theme just yet. I'll do some more research on it.

    That's not his problem.

    If you downgraded to 2.0.1 and are trying to install SP Recovery ESE81 it will not work and you will not be able to get past the Motorola Logo. You need to Upgrade your 2.0.1 to 2.1 first then install SP Recovery (ESE81) is meant for 2.1.

    So downgrade again to get rid of your freeze then upgrade to 2.1 then install SP Recovery w/ RSD Lite.
