any way to get to the bootloader without doing that
ok here's what i did...
hold down d-pad
hold down power
when i saw the flicker, released both power and d-pad, and it worked
i don't believe so, but if this doesn't work, then there's something wrong with your droid
i know there is something wrong with it the power button is broke i want to take it back for the factory warranty and have to get rid of root cannot do that without pushing software from rsd lite in bootloader mode
i'm an idiot... i'm sorry, i completely forgot the whole reason for this was your power button was broke... i went to watch germany play spain and forgot what this post was all about...
this might be a good post for the rescue squad (for those watching!)
my only other thought is that ROM Manager has a version of 2.0.1 you can flash back to through its' recovery (clockwork), at least it used to... i'm not sure if it leaves the clockwork recovery on there or not. However, it just hit me that if your power button doesn't work, you can't really get into recovery anyway...
However something else just hit me - if you're able to see the flicker, and then it boots up, how are you even doing that without a working power button? Battery pull?
yeah battery pull
and no flashing through rom manager i get an error basically saying i am not rooted
but i have the superuser app
and cannot root or unroot from update.zip from recovery
so last option was rsd lite but cannot get into bootloader for that to work
i might call get insurance and snap it in half
currently do you have sprecovery or clockwork installed?
i think sprecovery
if, when you load up recovery, it's blue text at the top, a greenish android in the background, and orange text in the middle, then it's sprecovery
and if that's the case, you should at least be able to get root access again and possibly try the rom manager thing - check here and see if you can just simply get root access for 2.1 again, then you could try the ROM Manager thing again:
look in box option 04
i've gotta leave for a few hours, so hopefully someone else, maybe from the rescue squad, can step in here and help out if you need it between now and then, or correct anything i told you wrong
Download "Quick Boot" by "Sirius Applications Ltd." in the market, it has the option to reboot, boot recovery, and boot bootloader from its gui. Then you can flash an sbf.
You owe me a beer.
