    Calm down now, you will be fine.


    First off tell us your phone and carrier, then a link to the forum post you got the ROM from.

    Then:

    To get into recovery

    Turn off your device

    Hold the vol up and vol down buttons.

    Tap the power button to bring up the fastboot menu.

    Use Vol down to move to recovery and Vol up to select it.

    If you open stock recovery just wipe data and factory reset and the cache. Then reset

    If you open the custom recovery, again wipe data and factory reset and cache then re flash the ROM. Then reset

    Do not be scared you may end up doing something out of desperation that completely bricks your device.
    my advice is to follow the post above mine and keep us updated:)

    Yes, while the Droid is on his back just tap the two volume buttons and it will take you into recovery

    What custom recovery are you using? There's probably other things you can try

    Here's a recommendation. Download and install on your computer Matt's Razr Utility 1.8 or 1.81 or 1.82 (I recommend you go here to get 1.82 Droid Razr Utility 1.82 [Windows] For Verizon Droid Razr And Droid Razr Maxx Only - DroidRzr.com). You can find that utility in this forum next door in the Hacks sub-forum (version 1.8 I believe). Extract that utility to its own folder on your computer...you must extract the file, the utility will not run from within the .zip file. After you have the utility installed on your computer make sure your phone is set to usb debugging mode (menu>system setting>developer options). Power your phone off. Then power your phone on while holding down the volume up and volume down buttons. You will boot into a black screen with white lettering (you'll recognize the screen, you've been there before). Connect your phone to your computer with the factory supplied usb cable. Make sure you have the Motorola drivers installed on your computer (there is a folder in the utility with the drivers). On your phone select AP Fastboot, then in the utility select "restore phone to stock .211...option 1 if I remember correctly. Do not unplug the usb cable until the utility finishes. When competed your phone should reboot to stock .211.

    My Razr did the exact same thing. Jpcalhoun's suggestion is exactly what I did. After running option 1, I restarted phone to make sure all was fine. Then I installed the .215 leak, then rooted my phone using the same utility (starting with option 2), then flashed the DroidHD rom. All is fine.

    Once back to stock, the instructions for the .215 leak is here:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-razr-support/217843-mattyps-215-leak-classroom.html

    Simple step by step instructions for rooting using Mattlgroff's utility (the same one you used to go back to stock) can be found on post #89 here:

    And don't worry about setting usb debugging since you can't get into the menus

    Don't worry about money. This is just 99.9999999999999% probably a bad flash.

    Also, I have to recommend using Safestrap from now on.

    Even if there is a bad flash, you still can boot into stock with no problems.
