    My Droid X took a dump today. First the bottom row of buttons stopped working, so I did a proper power off/on, and it had the black bootloader screen that said something to the effect of:

    "Battery status: OK
    Connect to USB, Ready for programming."



    Is there any way to fix this, or should I just get it warrentied (This is my second X, and i'm kindof getting annoyed at having to get a new phone every other month... Half tempted to go back to the iPhone when VZW finally gets it. That was at least stable...)

    So if you pull the battery and restart, you get to this screen (called the bootloader)?

    You could attempt an SBF flash back to stock, but it's a bit odd that the phone offed itself and ended up in this state.

    EDIT: It will not go any farther than this.

    Yep, so you can try an SBF restore since you're at the bootloader.

    At least it's asking for the USB to be plugged up, which means RSDLite will probably be able to read your phone. I have never had to SBF (knock on wood).

    We are not allowed to provide you with the files/links to SBF. So Google and you shall find.

    I downloaded the RSDLite and SBF Files, and tried to flash the phone. It said "Chipset 43 not recognised" Then when I hit start, this is what it looked like

    How convenient... As soon as I get the right software, it says

    "Battery low, cannot program."


    FMMFL!!!

    So plant it on a charger for a couple hours and repeat.
