    Try a different cable if you haven't already.

    Other than that, it would be time for a replacement.

    Yeah I have done and researched everything I can. Its funny that I can find threads on the problems Im having individually such as the errors or just getting stuck in bootloader, but I havent seen anyone else say its all happening at once lol. Also I feel like the sbf has worked somewhat because initially when this all happened other than the battery low I did have a corrupt data or error message on the bootloader screen itself.

    But the linux program starts it does say DROID X FOUND, thats why I dont understand why rsdlite cannot find it and I definitely have the drivers installed. But do you know anything about formatting your sd card? Will that somehow help me with the errors I'm seeing in android recovery.

    I have not tryed another cable yet though, and as far as 4.5.596 I was trying to do that method via usb. The problem Im having tho is my computer will not boot from the usb for some reason so Im going to look into that some more..

    I wouldn't recommend the USB trick. It impregnated my old battery, though I was able to finally get my x started and sbfd for some reason. Then my phone wouldn't recognize the battery or any other. Verizon took note of this and luckily I had no trace of root or custom recovery so they took it as a hardware failure and replaced my whole device. If you can manage to sbf and f-up the battery, might be worth a shot though *insert disclaimer here*...

    The Linux sbf is built to find the device specifically. Because you haven't booted windows yet, there are no drivers available to the system that would recognize the phone. The drivers are specific to windows after it boots. Rsd-lite method is dated because if during the sbf process something goes wrong rsd-lite wont find the bootloader software correctly and will initially fail from then on out. I've had the same issue since I tried to sbf and when it didn't take I had no choice but to use the live CD. You could try the sbf_flash method in Linux with the official vrz-blahblahblah.sbf 1kds provided in his thread. Again, don't worry about drivers in Linux as they are not necessary. The only difference between the livecd and the Linux terminal method is you have to manually type everything out. Best bet, try a Linux bootable livecd like puppy Linux and use the terminal if you can get your battery to charge. 1kds provides all the necessary commands in his thread

    ALRIGHT right now I'm feeling like a genius. After three days of searching through forums, cutting usb cords, burning isos and, anything else you can think of I have finally fixed my phone... for now anyway lol I remember reading that the battery will not charge in bootloader but I wasnt sure about the android recovery. So I grabbed my phone went into recovery and plugged my phone in. I didnt notice anything so I figured why not just try to get into bootloader from here I held the power button camera and both up and down volume and I got the best pop-up my computer has ever seen it saying my phone has finally been found. I quickly opened rsdlite and sure enough my phone was listed. I ran the sbf and it worked!!! The only thing I didn't do was go into android recovery afterward because it went straight to the activation menu on my phone and I couldn't resist or wait to wipe data and all that. So far I've had no problems and everything seems fine...Now back on to more rooting and flashing lol


    I really appreciate all the feedback and I definitely know I came to the right place for help. Now I just hope I am able to help someone else who is experiencing similar problems and finds this thread!!
