    Sooo I think I bricked my Droid today or maybe someone can help me fix it before i go to the verizon store? It's stuck at the boot screen.. Motorola logo :/ took the battery out and nothing.. gets stuck in the same spot. It was working fine on 2.0.1 and rooted for the past few days then I was editing a file in the framework-res.apk and I think i mistakenly replaced my phones framework apk with the incomplete one I was working on =[ I rebooted it just a few minutes ago and now this is where I am >_< any suggestions? Fail right?

    i tried it as update.zip im on mac so it wasnt update.zip.zip. thanks but i didnt put the custom recovery on. it was a simple thing i was doing i just happened to drag the wrong file. simple mistake but now im left with a huge problem. hopefully they can either fix it or replace it at the verizon store. it was a .png file i messed with and it was named incorrectly. thanks for the help though

    If they replace it, because you bricked it after rooting it, and everyone knows we all pay higher prices because of things like, I can see a lot of folks around here being moderately annoyed.
