    Title says it all. I've already done this on my droid, now helping a friend.

    I've rebooted the phone completely and tried again, just sits on the Motorola logo. Any ideas?

    Interesting. If you have ADB you could try the "reboot recovery" command,

    Thanks for the tip thatguychuck.

    I see my friend about once a week, so I may not get to try until next Friday. I'll be sure to post my results.

    Attempted to reboot into recovery with ADB, same issue.

    Also, he tried to restore his phone to factory settings, but it would not complete. I believe he had to pull the battery. If that is a repeatable issue, I think this needs to go back to Verizon, unless there are any other ideas.

    Thanks!

    Yeah I think it should go back to Verizon...there should be no reason why you shouldn't be able to get into the stock recovery...
