    Okay, I originally rooted by using DM Updater downloaded from the market, worked fine. Flashed over to Adamz Smoked Glass, worked fine. 2.1 came out and now today I was bored and figured I'd go back to stock so that I could get the official 2.1. The easiest way seemed to be DM Updater selecting Stock 2.0.1 and flashing that way, well it downloaded I clicked flash rom and now my phone won't start. It starts and gets to the DROID screen then the red eye and then shuts off. I held x and power to start it and it had that ! image.

    What should I do? Easy fix I hope?

    Let me know if more details are needed.

    It may be the battery so make sure you leave that on charge for a while and/ or try a battery pull. Assuming it isn't the battery, hold the up button and the camera button to get into the stock recovery. Then use the D-Pad to select a factory reboot. Then hit the reboot in the recovery system. That may have solved your problem and if it didn't, the sure-fire way to fix it is to flash the stock 2.0.1 .sbf file using RSD-Lite. Get back to us if what I told you didn't work.

    I'm guessing you're in the stock recovery system since you see the /!\ symbol.

    D Pad Up and Camera didn't do anything, doing those + power gave me a screen that said something about battery ok, ok to program, connect usb cord or something like that. Do I do something from there? There were no options to go to or anything?

    RSD-Lite, is that a computer program or what? Where can I find the stock sbf file?

    I did battery pulls mutliple times, did nothing.

    I think if you just boot into recovery and wipe data and cache you will be fine.

    Hold x and power then up volume and camera button will get you to recovery. Then just wipe data and cache and reboot.

    I flashed the sbf to get back to factory but noticed I failed on the bootloader install part. My device boots and everything but I can't manually update and when I got the ota last nite it failed to verify so install failed.

    Is there anything I can do?

    Power off, hold up on dpad and power at the same time. Reflash the sbf file. I had the same problem the first and did it again,and it worked. Give that a try.

    I downloaded the 2.0.1 sbf and using RSD Lite v4.5.3 (already had it, is an upgrade needed and that's why I have this problem?). When I click start it instantly tells me "failed flash process. failed flash process. unable to retrieve initialization from INI file. (0x7029); phone connected" in the status area and in result it says FAIL

    If you download the RSD program from the thread above, it's version 4.6 - Maybe get rid of everything you have currently, and download all fresh files,and try it again. I took everything from that thread,and the first attempt gave me the fail status about 65% of completion. I booted back to the bootloader screen,and tried it again - and it worked without any issues.

    - When you open RSD, the top left corner there's a help tab - click that and there's an option to check for update, try updating to the 4.6,and see if that works

    Try to reboot into recovery, battery pull if needed to turn off, then wipe data and cache,reboot,and see if that'll clear it up.

    I have 4.6 RSD-Lite now and my phone doesn't load as one of the devices. I don't know what to do? Should I just go to Verizon tomorrow?
