1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I have a Droid X, running 2.2.1 (2.3.340). I installed GummyJAR 2.5 and the setup ran smoothly, but when I rebooted, the phone got stuck on the motorola screen. I tried several (20+) battery pulls, wiping the cache and data (factory reset), and installing the stock 2.2.1 as an update.zip but none worked. I still get the M of death.

    Here's the message I get when I try to apply the update.zip
    "Verifying your current system...
    assert failed: apply_patch_check ("/sdcard/app/AccountAndSyncSettings.apk", e4460022c15f112cdfeed63856bcc24632fcfbe5", "cf11303e36901d8339dc3bec8d30e7c502f3ef81")
    E:Error in /sdcard/update.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    Is there any way to apply the update.zip or my nandroid backup through bootloader?
    (I can't apply it through bootstrapper because my phone wont start-up)

    Or is there any way to apply my nandroid backup as an update.zip or through the stock system recovery?
    (I don't know if there should be an option but at the bottom of the system recovery page it says "E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command"

    -thanks in advance, life without my droid is meaningless

    I was hoping that wasn't my only option. Iv'e considered the flash/sbf method but Iv'e heard its very risky. I just wanted to make sure there weren't any alternate resolutions.

    -thanks again
