Try a different USB port.
Oh, and it doesn't say 2C.7C. It says 2C.6C.
So you're still on FRG01B. Interesting. Just out of curiosity, was the install you had rooted?
If using all the USB ports on the PC don't allow you to click start there are other options for getting it to work, though if you have access to another computer it might just be a lot faster and less frustrating to try it on that one.
The only other computer I have access to is really sucky lol...but my cousin figured the phone may have been rooted or something cause it has superuser permissions on it...I just want to send the phone back to factory settings so I can have my gmail account as the main one...it won't factory reset or let me remove the other users account...
I remember that. I'm asking because if you're rooted there are other options we can do. It depends on what recovery image you have.
Boot into recovery and tell me if you get a triangle with a ! in it or if it boots right to a menu.
How do I do that?
Power the phone down. Slide out the keyboard, press and hold X. Do not let go of that X till you’ve booted into recovery. Power the phone up. Do not let go of that X till you’ve booted into recovery. Once you're in recovery you can let go of the X.
Ive tried that before too and it always does the same thing. Im trying it now and it never leaves the Motorola symbol screen. It will flash to a blank screen after so long but then it goes right back to the Motorola symbol screen.
Okay, so not only is your phone rooted, but it's a bad root. Check the app drawer for an app called "ROM Manager".
Thats not there...
Well, with apologies for how long this has been taking, I think we may be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
So, to clarify, when you said that the factory reset wouldn't work, you were doing it from the settings, and when you tried to do it manually it wouldn't work because your phone bootlooped on the M. Makes sense now.
Go to the market and download ROM Manager. Install it, open it, scroll to the bottom, attempt to Flash Alternate Recovery. If you can't then go back to the top, flash Clockwork Recovery, then go back down and flash alternate recovery. I want SPRecovery on that phone for the next couple of steps.
I can't log into the android market. The original owner of this phone has his email linked to it and it asks for the password which I don't have and of course he will not give.
My apologies, I forgot that part. That's okay, though, because you can download and install ROM Manager from another source, provided you have Astro working. If not we'll have to find you another one.
Download this directly to your phone.
Assuming it downloads okay we'll figure out how to get it installed. If it doesn't we'll see about getting something on there so we can get it installed.
Thank you for all your help!!! The application is installed now )
Now, open it, scroll to the bottom, attempt to Flash Alternate Recovery. If you can't then go back to the top, flash Clockwork Recovery, then go back down and flash alternate recovery. I want SPRecovery on that phone for the next couple of steps.
