1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I was trying to update my droid to a gingerbread from steeldroid section of ROM manager. I was using BB Gingerbread rom before doing this. Everything went fine, but it's stuck on the motorola logo. I know that you can get into recovery mode by pressing down power button and x, but I can't do this because my power button is broken. Is there any way to revert it back to the way it was? or is there maybe a way to get it into recovery mode another way?

    Note: I cannot get into ROM manager, as it is stuck completely on the moto logo...it won't go past that. Also...this is the original droid.

    Thanks to anyone that can offer help!

    I think that without an os and without a power button you may be in serious trouble.

    If the power button is broken, you can pull the battery with the phone plugged in to the wall charger, hold X. This will get you into recovery from a boot loop.

    If your stuck at the M, pull the battery, hold X, then plug in the wall charger.
