View Full Version : Droid X still stuck at Bootloader after flashing SBF

This phone was a perfectly functional Droid X, with the latest standard OS version available from Verizon.

It got wet.

We let it dry overnight, and tried starting it back up, and it went right to the Bootloader screen:

Bootloader
30.04

Battery OK
OK to Program
Connect USB
Data Cable

At first, I tried a factory reset, but that didn't work. It completed with no errors, but came back to the bootloader screen.

I tried flashing it with RSD Lite, and it completes, but fails when trying to reboot the phone.

I tried flashing it with sbf_flash, and even tried using the 1KDStaz_DX_4.5.605.iso scripted version, and it appears to take the image without any errors, but when I try to restore it to factory defaults, it appears to complete with no errors, but when I restart the phone, it just comes back to the bootloader screen.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Are you on .621 or .605?

Unfortunately, I don't really know what version it was before it crashed. It could have been the .621; are there special instructions to try to repair to that version? Or -- would there be any harm in applying .621 if the phone was on .605?

I'm pretty sure I took the update from Verizon. I'm not worried about rooting the phone, I just want it to work at this point. Thanks!

I grabbed the .621 sbf and flashed it, still the same results, it only gets to the bootloader screen. Any other suggestions?

Thanks,

Did you take out the battery and put it back in and held the powerbutton and home button until the little anDroid shows up? After that hold the volume up and volume down and then just wipe cache and data and reboot

There are many posts with the same issue - here is mine

I) did not find a solution. The phone I was trying to repair did not get wet however. If you can get to recovery above, you should be good to go.

After you sbf your suppose to take out battery hold the home button + top button until the little android Guy comes up the push volume up and volume down to get into recovery then wipe cache and data and reboot. And it should work unless you were on .621 and tried to flash .605

sorry for the slow response. I did remove the battery, wiped the cache, did factory reset, and rebooted, and still no luck.
