    Try this
    -Turn your phone off.
    -Hold down "Home" and press "Power" until the Motorola logo appears.
    -Release "Power" and continue to hold "Home" until an exclamation appears.
    -Release "Home" and press the "Search" button once. Your phone will now enter recovery.

    thanks for posting that but a bit late ha
    i read up on unbricking your droid blah blah blah and i went to try it
    so basically im stuck at bootloader now even more in the hole fml...
    basically followed http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-x-hacks/68222-unbricking-your-droid-x.html
    and nothing happened still at bootloader
    on the bootloader it says err: A5,70,70,00,1F
    idk if that means anything but ive been kinda of researching and really nothing has helped

    Maybe you're flashing the wrong SBF. What version is your bootloader? What system version were you on?

    That's what they're there for. Except the last two. Unless you count helping me/bringing enjoyment, then they're for that too. :icon_ devil:

    haha ya ok i dont think i should create another thread for this so im just going to keep it in this one but
    when i boot up it shows the rubix custom rom animation and when i try and download an attachment from my email it says my SD card isnt mounted or isnt there
    i took out my SD and put it back
    does it just not recognize it because i flashed? orrrrrr did i do an uh oh?

    EDIT: figured out the SD part but i cant send texts and when i call i need to use external operator to complete call
    pretty confused ha any ideas about whats going on?

    Ok, remember only use a backup from the current system

    If you restore an old one that's how you brick for sure

    well when i was trying to flash it i was using a .315 i think it is instead of a .320
    but ya i forgot that my phone wasnt activated so it wasnt sending texts etc etc
    but i rooted it again ran recovery restored to my original .340 and then unrooted to check if everything was back to normal then rooted again and now everythings all gravy haha
    plus my backup that i was using was when i first rooted my droid
