    Did you install the proper drivers from Motorola? What version of Windows are you running? What version of RSD Lite?

    Have you connected the phone to the PC prior to trying to run RSD Lite?

    Ah, sorry, just making sure you weren't trying to flash SPRecovery to root it. :)

    How did you get into the bootloader in the first place? Because you'll want to do that.

    i bricked my phone, so its stuck on the bootloader screen, i was told
    that flashing the SBF file would fix it.

    normally i get into it by pressing the hold/pwer button the top volume button and pressing the camera button.

    i dont know what to press when doing step 9 though, to "catch the boot"
    ):

    What you do is press and hold those right before it starts to reboot. Keep an eye on the progress bar and when it gets to that point you press/hold and let it reboot.

    However, as this document was written for the Droid 1 (which has the problem) and not for the X (which might not) you might not have to worry about catching it. Just watch and see.

    now i just need to get my neighbor to charge the battery for me.

    when exactly do i press/hold the buttons?
    what does the status bar have to say?

    Sorry, I meant watch RSD Lite (so used to status bars! LOL) and when it gets to that point press and hold. Of course, the X might not have the same bug the D1 has and might reboot into the bootloader properly.
