    OK! Have a new moto droid, came with 2.1 software from Verizon. Wanted to root... so I simply went did a recovery boot, tried to wipe data factory reset and then reboot phone, now i am stuck in a loop. I can get into the recovery no problem. I can't get any farther. If i turn the phone on it loads up the red droid eye and then white "Droid" then the red eye and white "droid" and will not allow me to turn off the phone unless I do a battery pull. I am at a loss what to do. Battery is % charged, i have nothing on it to care that was lost, just need to know how to get out of the loop. I have the drivers but bc when i try to hold down the gold key, it just reboots to the crazy screen, I am lost. Thanks for any help!

    trying

    OK, i have done this, where I am at is this... I can't get my droid to see the RSD... I hold the up on the gold pad, but it immediately goes to the red eye, then the white "droid" and continues to do this... IDK how to make the rsd communicate with the droid so I can use it!??! I am on windows 7, i held the shift alt key when i open it to run with administrator rights!?

    Ok pull the battery, put it back in then hold up and power on. See if that helps. If your not at the bootloader rsd won't see it.

    Right, I can't get to the bootloader screen... as soon as I put the batter in (bc it is connected to the pc, i don't have to hit the power button it starts to boot and almost immediately goes to the droid. I can't get it into recovery but not the bootloader?

    Pushing the gold pad towards the phone, so I guess sideways....The narrow part. also the white droid words shows before the red eye, then just loops until I take the battery out..

    For future reference up on the dpad mean towards the screen. Or if holding phone upright it pressing right. If you get in a bootloop like that unplug it from a power source so it doesn't automatically turn on, make it a little easier on yourself.

    THANK YOU!!!! I have been reading for only about 5 hrs trying to figure it out before I asked any questions so I am getting ancy i guess.. And its my daughters phone and she will be up in about an hr and if i broke it wooah what kind of trouble this would be. Too much headache so early from a 17 year old... goodness... I just wanted to put a gps prog on the phone bc the droid isn't an approved phone that verizon will allow the parental controls on, not have to panic like i did. thanks you so much, I am sure that this won't be the last question I have, but I promise I will be asking much sooner next time....:icon_ banana:
