    I've had my Droid X since the release date, and rooted it a month after. The root was great, I loved changing the font, the tether, the easy downloads. But after I downloaded a leaked froyo(which worked well) I tried changing the font for a new and "improved" looked. Sadly I killed my phone and I'm desperately seeking help. I tried the RSD Lite v4.7 but I'm stuck at Bootloader, Mew_Map Blank
    Err. A5, 70, 00, 1F
    It's scary, but I'm hopeful.
    I really don't want to take it back to Verizon.
    If anyone knows how I can fix it I'd really appreciate the help.

    Ask a mod to move your thread to DX Tech/Hacks or the Rescue Squad, I bet your phone is not a lost cause yet. :)

    You bricked your phone. You need to flash SBF file. AKA your operating system is toast. You need to push SBF(O/S) back on to your phone. With reading and doing it right 25 minutes your up and going. Search google for SBF file. We can not give links it's against motorola rules/laws. Let me know if you need something else.

    If it can be saved, it will be! All is not lost yet.

    I'm not a mod or I'd move you myself. :) What file did you attempt to flash on via RSD Lite?

    Thank you guys. I fixed it, stayed up all night. I used rsd v4.8 and sbf 2.2, I used 2.1 Without knowing that you cant use it after the update. My droid is up and running abd still rooted. As for modifying styles I guess ill have to be careful to make sure that I use apps that work with 2.2 it was a mistake and I should be more careful it almost cost me my phone

    Good thing you solved it. Make sure you don't forget to make backups so you don't have to SBF every time you "kill" your phone!

    Here's a good explanation and method from Droid-Life:

    A nandroid backup is essentially a giant snapshot of your phone, stored on your SD Card that should be created each time you switch ROMs, themes or try anything which could potentially change a system file. Plus, they are good to have especially when you flash a new theme and realize how damn ugly it is. You can easily restore your backup and enjoy your previous settings.

    get rom manager. Flash recovery. Reboot into recovery then select backup

    easier way is. Download Rom manager, top option "bootstrap recovery" scroll down to backup. specify name and it will reboot phone and do the work for you :)

    Whatever info the computer can read about the phone should be in the left widow of rsd, and the info on the sbf should be on the right, make sure ur battery doesn't die, and that you extracted the sbf file directly into rsd lite

    Yep! Thank God! Back to factory, have to check sdcard to see if it's still rooted or not but I don't think it is now. Now that I know what I'm doing and will make a good backup, I'll get this figured yet.. but all is well now :)
