    I have a Motorola Droid (A855) that I've had since 11/09.

    At the time my issue first occred (2 days ago) I was running the current stable version of CyangenMod.

    Whilst on the phone with a friend I dropped teh phone, picked it up, continued to talk. I realized my friend could not here what I was saying and upon looking at the screen I say the phone was rebooting.

    Upon reboot I couldn't get past the SLIDE TO UNLOCK screen.

    I tried several battery pulls to no avail.

    I was able to use the hard keys, such as the power key, and once in that menu (reboot, plane mode, power off) I was able to access the options using the d-pad on the keyboard.

    In recovery mode I tried restoring several previous back ups to no avail, and then finally tried a factory reset, still with no results.

    Now I can't get past the WELCOME TO DROID TOUCH THE ANDROID TO BEGIN screen.

    I'm no longer under warranyt, and even if I were my red water mark switched months ago (yay toliet).

    Insurance is also not an option, as even with insurance I don't have the $ to get a new one as I just lost my job last week, so I'm trying to figure out just how to pay the bills and buy grocieries.

    Also all of my PCs are running GNU/Linux so, although me obtaining a Window$ machine for a time may be possible, any suggestions not requring Windoze would be helpful.

    Without a job without a phone in Detroit.

    My issue has since been resolved simply by allowing my battery to die. Pulling the battery and even using a different battery didn't work. However when I just allowed my phone to completely drain the battery, which took a little over 2 days as I wasn't really running anything, and then charged it with the wall charger, it just started working again. Luckily then I was able to use ROM manager to restore back to before I was screwing around with reflashing and such.

    I used to work for a company called Parrot. We had a product called the MINIKIT SLIM. it used to lock up similarly and that was the only way to fix it was let its battery die.

    Well that was an anti-climactic wait for the battery to die. It didn't help. Gotta send back to Verizon.
