    There is probably a way but it depends. What did you do just before the bootloop? You may have to sbf.

    Sbf is the term for a file you flash to the phone from a recovery tool. You need a PC to do it. Since I have no clue what would cause your phone to bootloop I'm not sure if there would be an easier or less invasive fix.

    I'm looking for a good guide for the droid 1 or a rescue squad member to help walk you through it. I've never had to do it myself so it would be a blind leading the blind type of situation.

    First off that's bunk as far as the verizon guy saying he couldn't do anything. He could've at least looked at it. From what I understand a lot of stores these days have recovery tools and can fix it in a hot second, that is unless they're too lazy or stupid to bother. Just an fyi while I'm finding a guide, this is fairly advanced user type of stuff and it will wipe everything including apps and contacts from the phone.

    Try to get to ur bootloader first... If its like the x.... Home down ur home button and power button and try a factory reset.... If those buttons dont work try to hold down the camera, both volume buttons and power

    Ok did some searching and this is the best guide I could find. Motocache who authored it is one of the best when it comes to the droid 1. Most everything should remain accurate except for the sbf file itself. For that you will need the newest build's sbf file frg3whatever. Start reading and I'll try to find the correct file.

    Actually that's not a bad idea. To get to recovery on a droid 1 hold the power button and x button from a phone off state. When you see the android guy and the exclamation point, hit the magnifying glass on the keyboard. Using the volume buttons to navigate and the camera button as an enter key, navigate to the factory reset option and perform it.

    I had the same problem with my droid and what I would do is take my battery out and push the power button for 30sec..... than put the battery back and the phone would actually start. But after rooting my phone this problem stop.
