View Full Version : Phone bricked. Stuck on m logo and tried everything I could. Please help

Hello RS,

I've mostly been a lurker but after bricking my phone yesterday trying to go to ics rom and after trying every possible solution I could find, I come to you for help. And yes, please get all the head smacks about another phone bricked b/c of lack of research prior on compatability now. I did that for 2 hours straight last night.

Before I get into what I did yesterday, let me give you some prior possibly helpful info.

It is a little over an year old and a week into getting it, I had it rooted, had cwm installed, and flashed darkslide rom.

model number - droidx
android version 2.2.1
build number darkslide v4.1
keyboard - flext9 text
Total space (sd) - 14.81gig Available (sd)- 10.46gig Internal available

Before trying to install ics or taking any steps about it, I backed up and had rom manager, titatnium backup pro, and mybackup pro installed. Since rooting and flashing an year ago, I haven't done anything else to my phone so I'm really bad being tech savvy with android phones. The following are apps tb emailed me as having; I'm not sure if it is relevant but I figured I would show anyway,

With that all being said, I followed the instructions on -[ROM][AOSP][4.0.3][CDMA] Gummy 0.9.0 – 03/24/12 – The Remodel! | DroidModderX (http://droidmodderx.com/galaxynexus/romaosp4-0-3cdma-gummynex-0-1-0). It was going fine and the issue happened after rebooting in the last step.

It got stuck on the motorola logo and nothing gets me out of it. No amount of waiting or button combos. This meant I could only do something to get out of it before.

What I've tried thus far:

Taking battery and sd card out for 15+minutes before putting it in and trying.

Pressing power and home, then releasing power takes me to the exclamation/triangle screen. From there pressing search button takes me to the android system recovery (3e) blue screen. I've wiped data/factory reset, wiped cache partition and pressed reboot system now, and it ends up with me on the m screen with no difference.

apply sdcard:update.zip ends up with failed to verify signature and isntallation aborted. On the bottom it says E: Can't open /cache/recovery/command.

What can I do next RS?

You need to sbf... We have some great links... I have one in my signature
The problem you had us darkslide is a froyo rom... And you need to be on ginger bread... Because of the kernel...
So no biggie.. Just sbf to 602... Root with a one click root like the Droid 3 one click root... Install bootstrap... Then you'll be radio for ics

"I don't even have a little dog todo"

Thanks Nemo. I'll try using the Rsd Sbf on your signature. Do you know if any of my back ups or data will be recovered or recoverable with sbf after the back ups I made with the apps?

edt: oh and I'll let you know how it goes

2nd edit:

ok it's back to factory settings. is there any way I can get use my backups to get data back?

If you used Titanium Backup or MyBackup to backup your apps you'll be able to redownload either of those two apps and restore as they backup everything to your SD card.
