Default Droid X Frozen at "Big M"

Hi All,

I've been a long time lurker and have been loving my new droid x since August. I decided that I was going to install custom roms so I rooted and download the custom recovery. When i decided to flash the rom (for the record I have flash countless Touch Pro 2 roms so it wasnt my first time doing it) I must have messed something up because now I can not get passed the Big M loading screen ... I tried to go into recovery mode and reset my data/cache but that didnt fix it and also go into the bootloader and flash the sbf file. The only problem with flashing the sbf file is that I cannot get my computer to recognize motorolla's drivers (i am running 32bit windows 7) because whenever i plug in my droid x i get an error message saying failed to mount. What is my best option? Thanks guys

The drivers can be found here in this forum if you search. Adb drivers might help you to. Check the sticky. It will lead you in the right direction. Many have had usb connection issues.

can you get into the boot loader to flash the sbf?
plug usb into phone
start rsd lite
with phone off hit power button+volume down+camera button at the same time for 2-3 seconds then release them you should get into the boot loader to flash with rsd

thanks for the help ...
i can get the phone into the bootloader after i charged the battery by wires but what i cannot get the phone to do is to be recognized by windows. whenever i plug it in phone i cannot get it to be recognized after installing just about every driver i could find ... i am running out of ideas so if any one knows a way to get my computer to recognize my phone it would be very helpful

make sure you guys are patching rsd lite when you install it. also I found installing motoconnect and uninstalling all other usb drivers works the best. Sounds like guys forgot to mount the system when you installed the rom. Just be sure to patch the ini file or rsd will not recognize your phone.

Does the 4.8 rsd require a patch? I used it Saturday without patching it and everything worked fine.

Yes, that's the beauty of the sbf file, you can recover from about any situation with it.

Yes. It will work. Just follow the instructions. Many a bootlooped X has been resurrected with this file. Is it too early for a drink?

As was said, with the 2.2 SBF, you really can't brick it. It will all be fine. This process works.

Oh you don't want the M. You want to boot into bootloader mode. you do this by powering the phone down. In this order press and hold the camera, volume down, and power button. The screen will flash and you will have a solid black screen with white lettering. Should say something like bootloader ver. 30.1 or something to that affect.

No problem. Windows can be such a PITA sometimes. I'm really glad you got it going again. Just remember TO MOUNT THE SYSTEM (if done right the screen will say "unmount system")

this may be redundant but do you have win 7 32 bit drivers installed??? and are you right clicking and running as admin??

you know you have the right drivers if the moto logo shows up by the clock when you plug the phone in.....though they didn't work for me til i uninstalled and reinstalled on xp

i had the same issues as you did but it took eventually
