View Full Version : Boot looping after flashing any ROM

Hi everyone,

I just received replacement Droid X from Verizon, and which came with Gingerbread.
I then sbf'd back to froyo to install the rooted gingerbread v596.
After I did that, I used Droid 2 bootstrap to flash a rom.
But after that, I only get into a constant bootloop.
When I try to get into recovery using home+ volume down+ power, it brings me to the "!" screen, but when I hit the search button, nothing happens.
I tried two roms so far: apex and liberty, and it's happening to both.
Right now it's stuck bootlooping on liberty v9.
Anyone got any ideas before I sbf again and just leave it at stock gingerbread?
I think I can use adb and hit "adb recovery", but I'm at work right now with no access to sdk.

EDIT: Forgot to mention I also changed the PRL of this phone to make it work for Metropcs. Don't know if that would affecting rom flashing.

When you get into recovery via the power+home button, for GB, you press both volume keys at the same time, not the search key. Then to select, use the power button, not the camera button.

Thanks!
It worked perfectly.
I owe you one.


EDIT: It booted Liberty successfully, but it looks like the PRL got changed back to Verizon. Guess I'll have to do the change again when I get home from work.
