    My rooted Droid X suddenly blacked out on me. I'm stuck in bootloader. I can get to a menu but nothing works, even a full wipe and factory reset. Everything takes me back to the bootloader screen or the triangle/exclamation. I can't SBF because my computer doesn't see the sd card when I plug it in. This just happened as I was reading email. Does this mean my phone is dead? What can cause that?

    You PC doesn't need to see the SD card to SBF.

    I followed all the steps in the Droid X .sbf Flashing Guide, got to Status: Finished and Result: PASS, however, when I rebooted the screen with the triangle and exclamation again appears and the only way I can shut it down is by pulling the battery. :(

    you always need to do a data wipe after flashing an SBF. When you get to the page with the Droid icon and the triangle, hit both volume buttons at the same time (or the search button if you SBF'd to GB) then use the volume buttons to navigate to "wipe data/factory reset" or something along those lines and select it with the camera button (or the power button if you SBF'd to GB).

    Okay, I finally got into Android system recovery and selected "YES-- delete all user data". After the "data wipe complete" message I rebooted the system and the screen with the triangle and exclamation again appeared. What am I doing wrong?

    Did you try rebooting again after that? It should boot normally once you've wiped data, if that won't boot it into the OS then something may have gone wrong during the SBF flash

    I followed every step exactly as described in the guide. No matter what I do, the reboot always takes me back to the same screen. This is so frustrating. I've been rooted for eight months, then, all of a sudden my phone is dead. Nobody warned me about this.

    Have you tried booting safe mode? Safe Mode - DROID X by Motorola

    I remember someone else having an issue a lot like this, and through trying various combinations of buttons during bootup they were able to get it to boot into safe mode. That wouldn't necessarily be a solution, but it would at least let us know what we're dealing with (shot hardware, if you end up able to boot safe mode in a way other than the normal way)
