Did you do a factory reset after? Home and power then both volume buttons> scroll to wipe data with the volume button> select it with power button> then do the same for cache then reboot...try that first

When I reinstalled the battery, it went right back to the bootloader 30.04 screen, as quoted in my previous post. It seems to be the recurring pattern with this phone.
In prior attempts, I have gotten the red Motorola symbol, but it never got past that screen.
Try holding home and power while you put the battery in. If you get the Moto logo keep holding them another 3-5 seconds. Phone should go to a screen with an android and a ! In a triangle. Then both volume buttons pressed simultaneously opens stock recovery as stated above.

So, taking the battery out for 10 to 15 minutes and puttting it back in launches the screen: "Bootloader 30.04; Battery OK; OK to Program; Connect USB Data Cable".
Then Power and Home button simultaneously gives the red Motorola M where it seems to stay. Non-responsive except for battery pull at this point.
If you're holding power and home continuously after the logo and nothing's happening you might need to try another SBF maybe with an older version of RSD Lite. I use 5.4.4 I believe it is and its never given me any trouble.

Any chance the battery could be an issue. I bought a battery off of an Amazon vendor and it was swollen. You can spin it like a top on a flat surface. They are sending me a new one, they say.
I get the same result with RSD Lite 4.8 and 5.7, two different USB cables, two different ports. That all seems to go smoothly and successfully and after the process is through, the phone reboots and goes to "Bootloader 30.04; Battery OK; OK to Program; Connect USB Data Cable". This same screen is what was shown on the ebay listing.
I thought it would be easier than this...
For RSD Lite I have always used 5.4.4. when I used it as above, so I would suggest downgrading to that, and do a clean install of it all, including the Moto USB drivers just to make sure. And of course make sure the USB is being plugged directly into a home USB port, and not a 3.0 port (needs to not be on a hub and needs to be a 2.0 port). Prior to starting the SBF, get it hooked up in bootloader, go to your Control Panel (on PC) -> System -> Hardware and make sure you don't have any missing drivers (Yellow exclamation points) related to the USB ports, or Motorola interfaces. RSD Lite can show a success even if its not (it really is a very finicky program)
Failing that I would attempt an SBF to .605 using the 1KDS ISOs. If part of the SBF took to .621 there is a chance it might not be able to SBF using one of these discs (you may get an error that says "MEM_MAP Blank" in bootloader) but at least then we can rule out whether or not the phone is taking the SBF (hardware issues on the phone itself). I know you wanted to go to .621 but if we can even get it booting in .605 then you could always OTA to .621 if you really wanted it.
First, thanks for the replies. I did try 605 and got the error mem_map things others have commented on, so it is taking something. I am recharging the battery and going to try the Linux route. Which brings me to the question: is the command line open in a DOS-type window. I'm using Ubuntu 12. Other files are on a flash drive.Thanks
I won't link it directly as we have certain restrictions here for that type of stuff, but its the top hit on the above link if you don't have it already.
Goose,Thanks for all of your help and explanations. I've got the sbf_flash utility. My current main question is how do you open the terminal window. I just booted from the cd and didn't see anything "terminal-like".
EDIT: Nevermind, I found it. Now for the battery to finish recharging.
