    Droid X Spilled glass of water... dry it out... works flawlessly until battery dies.... bricked... my verizon guy tosses a new battery in it and it boots rightup but kicked itself into safemode? I noticed so I try to reboot and get stuck bootlooping on the red M now and having to battery pull any suggestions? can get back to the bootloader should I flash it? Thank you for your time.

    You can try to sbf, but an sbf fixes software issues, not hardware issues. And the X doesn't have safe mode, so I'm not sure what it was doing on that one

    It didn't seem to effect functioning but said safemode in a little grey box in the bottom left corner had never seen or heard of it before myself You know Murphy's Law always works for the repairman

    The x actually does have a safe mode... I just forget how to boot up into it on purpose

    Almost stranded myself today was taking the motorcycle out for its first ride and I lost the bolt out of the negative battery terminal stopped dead. Had an extra put it back in battery still isn't charged up enough to start the bike on the mix of stale fuel without a jump. Get in one call before the droidx reboots itself and is back to boot looping. I'm putting in a pre order for a 32gig pebble blue galaxy s3 I believe droidx you will be missed.

    I got some water damage on my DroidX as well. I was stuck in a bootloop on a Liberty ROM. I SBF back to Motorola software with no luck. The phone would only boot in a safe mode configuration (booting with Menu button + power button).

    I figured out that if you hold the volume Down rocker and power button when booting up, it will boot up succesfully.

    When the phone boots up, the menu button always brings up the voice search option. Weird.

    So... to access in app menus hold the volume down rocker and press the menu button. Seems to be a good work around to having no menus brought up when pressing the menu button!

    That probably isn't a universal thing. Electronics/computers do weird stuff and when they get water damaged but I think that's most likely a trick that's unique to your phone.
