    I've managed to brick my Droid A855.
    This is both marvelous and upsetting. Now that I've messed it up. I can't figure out how to unbrick it. I've tried several different instructions and downloads. But none of them are working and the SBF files I need, I can't actually find. Here's what we have:

    >Power on
    >Remain in Motorola logo mode "M"
    >Take the battery out, replace
    >Hold x and power on
    >Triangle with ! in the middle
    >Up + Camera
    >Yellow Text in the middle reading "E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command
    >Blue text reading:
    Android system recovery <2>
    Use d-pad to highlight: center to select.
    reboot system now
    apply sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition

    Now. I've tried the sdcard:update. Here is what happens:
    --Install from sdcard...
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    E:failed to open /sdcard/update.zip (No such file or directory)
    E:signature verification failed
    Installation aborted.

    So I tried a Factory Reset. And this is what happens:
    --Wiping data...
    Preforming BP clear...
    E:finished unsuspend
    E:from flash to normal mode
    E:eek:pen dev
    E:engine init finished
    E:Successfully wrote 13 bytes.
    E:Transferred 13 byte(s) CMD opcode = 0x0012 to aux engine succeeded.
    E:write finished
    E:Attempted to read 12 bytes and read 12 bytes.
    E:Successfully read 12 bytes.
    BP clear complete successfully
    Formatting DATA...
    Formatting CACHE...
    Data wipe complete.

    Hmm... Still unable to get past that pesky logo. I do have RSD lite. I do know how to use it and get to the bootloading screen. (Power on hold UP on the d-pad.) And I've been at this for 24hrs.
    How do I fix this, step by step? And please, if there is any download links, please make sure they're direct, zipped, or rars. My computer flips out if it's an exe. I cannot get to my SDcard from my computer either, I have the drivers but when I plug in the phone I actually have to mount it. Of which I cannot do in the current state.
    So telling me to put things on the SD card would be pointless.
    Also. I've tried Clockwork Recovery ( several times with no success.
    It's a Droid A855 from Verizon. I actually like the phone enough to keep it. But in my effort to take screenshots, of all things, I successfully bricked it and need to unbrick it ASAP as it is my only means of communication to hospitals.
