Default Soft-Bricked - What do boot options mean?

Hi!

I think I just bricked my phone... I was trying to upload an .apk of Tasks+ to the phone (no Warez stuff, but can't find it outside of Market and don't have a Google acc), when the install process froze (transmit worked). I tried it again with a different version, same problem, so I decided I would just try a reboot. Everything looked phine while the Motorola logo was displayed, it disappeared as usual, but then nothing came up; the screen stayed backlit, but black. adb was not able to connect to the device, and wiping the cache from Android Recovery didn't help.

Now, I am presented with several choices at boot time, and unfortunately, I cannot find any explanation of what they mean. They are the following:

Fastboot
NvFlash
BP HW Bypass RSD
BP HW Bypass QC DLOAD
BP HW Diag & Boot AP
BP HW Bypass BP Only
BP HW Bypass RSD
Android Recovery
Boot Android (No BP)
Device UID
console=tty50,115200n8
Early Usb Enumeration
BP tools
RSD

Can anyone explain what the acronyms stand for, and what each choice does? I found the choices mention quite a bit when searching, but they were never fully explained, and I fear I might brick the device even more. I could, of course, try resetting the thing to factory state, but as I just had it set up completely to my liking, that would be very unfortunate.

Being given access to a console or a log would maybe suffice, if the latter can be read like a standard syslog. (BTW, can the phone use a syslog server?)

Thanks for any advice!

Good news, everyone.

I managed to access the phone with adb logcat (chose option "Early Usb Enumeration") and the phone told me:

02-25 02:58:08.669 1541 1555 E PackageManager: Package com.iss.tasksplus has mismatched uid: 10186 on disk, 10002 in settings

So looks like there was no major screwup. Unfortunately, adb uninstall says "Error: Could not access the Package Manager. Is the system running?". adb shell works, but I have no idea how to remove the packet manually.

Same thing every time with me, I fight a problem for hours, then post to a message board, and half an hour later I solve it myself ^^ Just had to remove the .apk from /data, and hooray, everything worked out perfectly. Off to enjoy the forums now ^^ (And to find out how to get Tasks+ onto my phone...)
