Bootloop persisting after doing steps used found in forum to solve bootloop after sbf flash.

Bootloop resulted after update of my rooted Droid X 2.2.1, system version 2.3.15, using RSD 4.9, Bootloader 30.04, and the VRZ_MB810_2.3.34_1FF_01.sbf file. Also tried this with 'system only' version update sbf file. RSD returned "PASS" message on this flash.

Also tried updating again using the update.zip file of maderstock340 using recovery mode with "install complete" message.

What to try next??

Run RSd as administrator first.

Thank you for your prompt reply, however, I am not familiar with running RSD as administrator. What do I need to do to do this? Do you mean log-in to windows as the administrator and then run RSD? I am the only user and am the administrator.

Go to program files and find RSD right click on it and click run admin. Make sure you have at least 50% bat before flashing. And question. Is your phone updated to 2.2.3?

trying the rsd as admin run. My phone started from 2.3.15 and the steps I took were to update to 2.3.34. Since I cannot reboot fully, I cannot determine for certain that it was updated to 2.3.34 The only indication that perhaps it did update is that the RSD install returned a "PASS" message.

0030 Sunday: Update: ran RSD with successful "PASS" and attempting reboot. I notice in the device properties (with all these attempted updates today) that it does not provide IMEI, Software version, Flex Version (all have N/A next to them) Bootloader version: v0x003004 if that means anything.

0040 Sunday: bootlooping :-(

System version doesn't matter. If you're on the 30.04 bootloader then use the full 2.3.340 SBF and rsdlite 4.8 or 4.9. If you're running 4.8 it runs as admin automatically

After a reboot. Boot into stock recovery and factory reset.

Thank you Droid-Xer The factory reset step is what killed the bootloop.

Actually I did, which is mentioned as part of my initial call for help because I did try those steps already. However, Droid-Xer's additional information was very helpful to make sure I was using the correct files, RSD version, using full version of SBF, taking the correct steps in exact order, etc since I could not get it to work properly using other forum suggestions as yours. Maybe i needed some hand holding??? :-)

Hey guys, what if I'm having the same issue....only thing is my phone wont go into recovery mode for me to do a wipe.....this is after an SBF attempt that supposedly was completed successfully but now stuck on the red M....tried SBF'ing again and it wont execute anymore, keeps giving me the "Fail" message. I notice that there's NO description in the "File Properties" box when I select my sbf file...any suggestions?

Reboot your computer after a failed attempt and try again.
