    I can probably help you. Who is your carrier and what's the problem?

    few things that can make the Droid X2 (MB810) unusable
    hardware failure
    flashing the Milestone X2 (MB867) sbf, changes the radio, and burns an efuse, so you can not go back to Droid X2 firmware

    as long as those two things don't happen, flashing a DX2 sbf (firmware), will restore the phone to working order

    Appalachian wireless. It never boots past the first m logo. I got my x working by using an ntelos sbf file but appalachian doesn't have any such files.

    It happened after rooting and installing bootstrap. Ran it as described and no luck. It immediately started this.

    first you have the Milestone X2 (MB867) [FONT=Titillium Web, sans-serif]so don't use rsd lite
    the [/FONT]
    ezSBF DX2 2.3.4 [FONT=Titillium Web, sans-serif] should be fine though, it will not touch the radio
    [/FONT]

    I am not very happy with myself today. I wish now I had left it alone. My phone is acting stupid, won't stay connected to data, constantly drops calls, freezes, reboots itself for no apparent reason and is getting extrememly hot.

    If I do a factory reset will it unroot me? Do I need to go back to stock and then factory reset? I would just prefer to go back. I need this phone to work for about a week longer and right now I am about to throw it across the room.

    sorry to hear you are having issues, thats not a normal occurrence.

    yes, you have to flash back to stock and factory reset, to get rid of all the root files.

    correct factory reset alone, will not unroot, or undo things done with root access, sounds like you need to flash sbf

    but you could try safemode first, if it works ok in safemode, it an app causing the problems

    root doesn't cause the issues she described, but as she stated " Not quite so laggy after I tweaked. Or I guess I did".
    what people do with root, can defiantly cause issues like this. that's why its important to understand what you do with root apps, as they can modify things in bad ways as well as good.

    Oh I have no doubt that I caused it. I downloaded and installed Titanium (paid for it) Backup and VM Heap tool. The tweaking I did on VM Heap was change it from 32 heap size to 36. Rebooted. Nothing else has been downloaded or added. I tried putting it back to 32 and rebooting again. Seemed to have made it worse. Battery drain is horrendous. I mean like a complete charge is gone in 2 hours with little or no use. Something is definately wrong. Data will NOT stay connected no matter what I did. Its a constnt loop... connect, disconnect, connect......


    Edit: I uninstalled the VM Heap and so far I am connected (3 minutes is a record for today). If that was the culprit, by uninstalling it should be gone now right?

    Edit 2: Nope.. still will not stay connected. smh :(
