    Exclamation Trying to SBF in Linux, may have bricked

    Hi everyone, I think I am in big trouble

    I was trying to return my phone to stock settings and all in preparation for the OTA gingerbread that will be coming out in the next few days, and I am not sure what went wrong. I followed this list of instructions exactly as they were written.

    http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/dr...tml#post106312

    As I was flashing the SBF, however, this is the error that came up in line 14
    Code:
    Data [14] Unexpected EOF
    !! failed
    After seeing this, i decided to try and boot into stock recovery mode to wipe data/factory reset, and wipe the cache (though I had done both of these before powering up in bootloader mode). I did the whole power+home thing, but for some reason when I pressed the search key after the "!" came up, nothing happened. My search key has never been on the fritz as far as a short circuit or anything, so I do not know why this happened.

    At this point, I am too afraid to try anything else that might brick my phone beyond oblivion. If anyone has any help or would like more information to better understand the problem, I would be more than happy to do that.

    Thanks in advance to all you smart people

    When you tried to boot, did you see a red moto logo, or white moto logo?

    If it's red: you need to press both volume buttons at the exclaimation point.

    If it's white: you need to press the search button at the exclaimation point.

    I think you should try the sbf again. Download wugfresh's portable standalone sbf utility. That's the easiest way.

    Don't know what we are talking about? Check the Android Dictionary
    Think you know what to do? Look at THIS first.
    Root .602 & .605 info here.
    Need to SBF? Try this.

    That worked! Thanks!

    Thank you so much everyone! Using that 1KDStaz .iso file worked like a charm! before I was running Ubuntu, I still don't know exactly what was going wrong, but you were right, that was seriously the easiest way to SBF!
