    Please help I don't know what to do. I did a stupid thing. I have a rooted droid X and I used root explorer to follow the instructions on the below website to try and get arabic font support, but now after reboot it is stuck at the M boot screen. Is there anything I can do to go into recovery mode and then what commands can I run to rename the files back without having to do a factory reset. I did make a copy of them before overwriting them. Please help.

    Thanks.

    I pulled the battery, but that didn't help. Before I do a factory reset, what does "apply sdcard:update.zip" in the recovery mode do?

    THanks for the reply, but it won't boot and it's stuck at the M screen. Is there anyway we can chat or talk? I'm sorry I am a total noob.

    I'm not sure how to really use RSD lite, so instead of using it can I just do a factory reset from recovery mode which I can get into?
