    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.
