    hey guys. im sure its been covered a thousand times but what the hell. i was running fission 2.6.1 and tried to install a rom. long story short, i have a dreaded paper weight. i tried to reflash with RSD lite and put the software back on my phone BUT once i reflash it gives me a black screen that says:

    Bootloader
    30.04


    battery ok
    ok to program
    transfer mode:
    usb


    thats all im getting out of my phone now. if someone could help direct me towards a solution i would really appreciate it. thanks in advance!

    Sorry just want to make sure I understand what is happening completely. When you try to boot up, it automatically puts you back to the bootloader screen? Or is that the only screen you can get it to other then the looping M logo?

    Very strange indeed. And have you tried pulling the battery or booting into stock recovery? Also, what .sbf are you trying to use, would you be able to copy and paste the name/info for me?

    VRZ_MB810_2.3.34_1FF_01.sbf

    thats the file name im using. it only allows me to enter the black bootloader screen. when i hold the power button it just goes black. i just pulled the battery again and am going to let it sit for a bit before i try to boot it. thanks for the quick response

    Ok well after you flashed the .sbf did you wipe data and cache from Stock recovery? Boot looping after flashing a .sbf is actually pretty common to the point where it normally happens.

    If you still haven't got it, it may be a bad download. Or you could try a froyo sbf. What kernel were you using? This is not a big problem, no worries. The biggest thing would be if your battery died.

    thanks for all your help but as of now it isnt even opening the bootloader. it went into a boot loop last night so i decided to give it a try this morning but it doesnt look like i can do anything. i plugged my phone into my laptop and now the green led is on but it wont do anything. what would happen if my battery were to die?

    To boot into bootloader hold camera, volume down, and power. If your battery dies then you will have to get it charged another way ie in someones working phone or external charger. Do you have the drivers for your PC? I'm gonna post a link where I get my sbf files and rsd lite. You will be able to fix this.

    Thanks for jumping in and helping out jrider. Been at work since early so I have not been able to chime in.

    Rwett, Let us know how you are making out and hopefully we can get it all figured out in no time.
