    HELP! I have RSD lite and it wont recognize my phone because the phone wont boot past the M logo. I have tried booting into recovery and it wont show an option to restore backup. What do i have to do to get this phone back on? The faster the help the better! Thanks

    Breathe, it'll be ok. :)
    Now, what are you trying to do since you're obviously already rooted? RSD isn't "seeing" your phone because you have to be in bootloader first.

    You hold the "up" arrow while powering the phone on.

    Panicking is usually when stuff gets messed up :)
    Gotcha! Just wanted to make sure it was necessary first, you know?

    let us know how your sbf went! you can also access bootloader from [phone off] camera button + volume up + power, which is the Droid X method but we're pretty much the same hardware.
