    I'm running 2.3.3 (.573) and am trying to update to .595 but I can't get to the recovery screen. I've held down my power button and home button and I see the exclamation icon, but when I hit the search button nothing happens. I've tried over and over, removed the battery several times. I'm not rooted.

    Any advice?

    on gb, you use both the up+down vol key instead of search. I believe the power button is select.

    No, I'm not getting any menu items regardless of what I press. I only see the triangle exclamation icon and nothing else. I also can't get out of that screen unless I pull the battery.

    Thoughts?

    I had this problem on my D2 the other day. Doesn't the X have a hard search key (ie, actual button, not a touch-sensitive spot)? If so, hitting that might work, like it did on mine.

    No, that doesn't work either. It basically locks up on that screen if I enter recovery.
    Basically all I see is this:

    Nothing I press will change from this screen. I have to pull the battery to boot it normal.

    Same Boat

    I'm also having the same issue, I'd like to update to the new rooted 2.3, but I also cannot do anything at this exclamation point screen without pulling the battery.

    Did you get it fixed? Try un checking the debugging in your settings.

    No.

    I was able to get it to boot to the bootloader (I think 30.04) by holding the three buttons, and I was trying to flash it with RSDLite 4.8, but I was getting 'Flash failed' with and without debugging mode checked.

    I had given up last night after about an hour and a half or so. Any other protips?

    Having the same problem, on that triangle/droid screen the search button does nothing to enter recovery mode. When the phone is booted up normal the search button works for everything.

    All that does is get to the Bootloader screen that says "Battery Ok, OK to Program, Connect USB Data Cable." How do you run the update.zip from there? I suppose I could be way off. Not rooted, just trying to get from .588 to .595

    Check the previous posts please.

    When you enter the android recovery mode that shows the exclamation point. You must press both the volume buttons at the same time. To select an entry, press the power button..

    Also, the bootloader screen is very diff than the android recovery. Please don't misinform.

    You must be rooted and have clockworkmod recovery installed to update to the leaked version of gingerbread. The bootloader part of the phone is for SBF recovery.

    Also, remember that you cannot use the default android recovery. It MUST be the clockworkmod bootstrapped recovery.

    Ok, the uncheck of the debugging fixed me for .573. For 595, I had to flash the recovery a few times in cwm. tricky tricky phones :)

    I, too, was getting the triangle and exclamation point. Pressing the Search hard button didn't work. Pressing both Volume buttons did. Thanks a bunch.

    Okay. I am getting a bit lost on the bootstrap mode. I have a rooted X. I have droid X bootstrap installed and when I select it, it tells me that the bootstrap is successful. I then select reboot recovery. It reboots. During the reboot, I hit the volume up and the camera button (it seems the power button and both volume buttons will get you to the same place) and it opens up the clockworkmod recovery 2.5.0.6. Is this bootstrap mode? If I am using the linux iso disc from 1kds, is this where I would leave it for the program to reflash a clean copy of froyo? If not, do I need to make a different selection in the CWM Recovery to get me to actual "bootstrap mode"?

    I did finally get my phone into bootstrap by pressing the camera, volume up and power at the same time. After doing that, it still comes up with the same error while using the linux iso. I even tried the windows SBF file in RSDLite and it gives me an error chipset 43 is not supported. Any suggestions?

    Finally, Success. I ended up finding a newer version of RSDLite. I had 4.5.1 then 4.7 then 4.7 patched and found a 4.9 version. With that, it finally took the flash. I am now booting in after wiping the data. Let's hope it takes the ota update.
