The blob turns its gears and whatnot for a while (2-3 mins) then goes back to DROID logo and keeps looping.

I don't know what to do.... thank you.
I don't know if this will work, but you can *try* wiping the cache partition.

With the phone powered off, slide the keyboard open. Press and hold the "X" keyboard key while you power on the phone. After the "Dual Core" screen, this should eventually start the Recovery - a triangle with an exclamation point.

At this point, slide the keyboard closed. Press the two volume buttons at the same time - this will start a blue text menu. Use the Volume Dn key to move the menu down to "wipe cache partition" and press the "power" button on top to select it. This will show yellow text saying "wiping cache".

When the menu returns, press "Power" on the "Reboot system now". See if that works.
