    Did you try to sbf before declaring it bricked? From what I understand its rare to actually brick a phone (not that it doesn't happen!)

    You shoulda asked on this forum before you declared it "Bricked".... If it makes it to any kind of recovery or hboot menu it is usually SBF-able. Try to SBF it back now...


    *** EDIT
    SBF HELP!!!

    You're not bricked, use rsd lite and the sbf for your phone(there are directions all over the net how to do this). Or if you can boot into recovery try wiping and flash the ROM you had working prior to you having this issue. Sounds like you didn't wipe thoroughly enough prior to flashing another ROM.

    You should have done an sbf. Flashing is very simple, sbf is the same thing. You are flashing it to "out of the box" state. Only reason that you may have bricked is because the rom contained a non dx kernal. Go to google and type "dx sbf". I see people all the time have problems and complain but they do not even do a google search! I just flashed my d2g last night from fission 2.4.3 - (sbf) - fenom 0.9.3b in about 45 min. That is with doing a nandroid and titanium backup.
    Edit: just saw your post. Make sure you google and download the dx sbf file and rsdlite. That all you need. Its very simple there is a quick 6 step process on the forums. Do a search.

    You can find SBF help in my sig for your DX and I am confident that you can fix this. You have to be careful using the term bricked because there are quite a few here that probably didn't respond with help after reading you say that you bricked your device for 2 reasons.

    A) if it was actually bricked there is no help
    B) people tend to get frustrated with the misuse of the term bricked.

    FYI....this is how you fix a bricked device.

    You are the reason why all of us are getting locked bootloaders, research before dabbling in something you don't know

    Just make sure you have the newest RSD (I believe it's 4.9) as well as the most updated drivers for your device which you can get from Motorolla's website.

    Where are you located BTW?

    Team black hat offers the sbf files that's where I got mine for my d2g.

    Edit: 4.9 is the newest version. All the drivers should update but if they don't I think there is a package for them as well. I did not need it so im not 100% on that.

    He didn't say anything about filing an insurance claim for it...or a warranty claim, he just said he bought a new one. He hasn't said whether or not he has done anything wrong in regards to Motorola/Verizon so besides jumping the gun on buying a new DX, I'm not sure he did anything wrong...unless he states otherwise.

    Good point, didn't see this post. Don't flame the guy for making a simple mistake all he did was buy a new one which he should return for his money if possible because im sure his first one will be working soon enough. I highly doubt one person sending their phone would cause moto to lock the bootloader >>

    Dude you can totally do it and once you do, you will have a new found confidence in modding your phone. I made sure before I flashed a rom that I knew how to sbf, just in case. Hopefully this is a lesson learned!

    Its funny that I can brick a phone and not a laptop even though they are the same price now.

    You didn't brick ur phone. Same thing happens to a buddy of mine going from Rubix focused to rubix blurry. Use rsd lite to get back to stock and try again.

    Btw i have only Seen one truly bricked phone. When i couldn't fix it, i asked for help. No one could help. It was a true brick. Wouldn't turn on at all. Wouldn't charge. Nothing. It was useless
