My question is, the Droid X is known for having the locked bootloader. What exactely does this mean? I see fully customized roms out for the Droid X so don't see what limitation there are from the locked bootloader. Is it because we have created a work around? What I'm asking is what can we not do with the locked bootloader?
Thanks,
iRmAc

I just tried this and my phone is getting stuck on the moto logo when doing the final reboot. Does this not work with 2.2.1?

For the following, I have a couple suggestions and questions.

I am running the stock VZW rom with the update, so my screen says:
System version: Version.2.3.340.MB810.Verizon.en.US
Android version: 2.2.1
Baseband version: BP_C_01.09.07P

Quote:
4. Drag and drop the zipped 928 BlackGlass onto your sdcard. You can make a separate folder for this on your SD Card labeled “custom themes/roms” and place the file there. You will later access this file through Bootstrap Recovery in order to install the custom ROM/Theme (or any other ROM or theme hereinafter).
Suggestion: The guide says to be in Mass Storage Mode, but this should take control of the SD card, so I'm thinking that needs set to charge only after copying the zip file but prior to moving on to step 5.

Quote:
5. Open the Bootstrap app in your app drawer and press “Bootstrap Recovery”. Click “Allow” if the Superuser Permissions window pops up. Make sure to do this step before rebooting. Some users have been having issues with the phone not rebooting into recovery and it's usually because they skipped this step
On this step, When I select the top button "Bootstrap Recovery", I get this:
FAILURE:
Error running exec().
Command: [su, -c, ./data/data/com.koushikdutta.droidx.bootstrap/files/surunner.sh]
Working Directy: null
Environment: null

I'm pretty sure I didn't skip any steps. I do have the superuser icon.

Is there any terminal command that I could use in the terminal emulator that would confirm I really am rooted? I tried cd / and ls and see files, but not sure on this device what things would work rooted that don't unrooted.

Since the guide says to accept yes for permissions if it comes up, I went to the next step in hopes...

Quote:
6. Press “Reboot Recovery” and your phone will reboot into recovery mode.
Nothing happens at all. It just stays on the Droid X Bootstrapper screen with the buttons and red skull pic.

Thanks for any help.

I had a couple minutes tonight and tried again.

First I did a full reboot - power off/on.

Then I started from step one.

This time, I did get the Allow option for superuser.

Everything else worked as normal, so I figure I did something wrong.

My X has been rebooting randomly since the VZW update and maybe something went goofy on the first reboot.

Same happened to me. I was never able to get my phone to reboot into a new rom.

I restored from my backup and am back where I was and haven't tried any further.

<rant>
I really am trying to get around the daily random reboots that started occurring since the lastest Verisuck update.

I'm usually a Verizon fan, but this latest update is making me angry...

Default 928...........

928 will NOT work (as of yet) on ....2.3.340. It is 2.2.1, and not 2.2 anymore. That is why we are getting stuck on M logo.

hi everyone sorry for the lag. i take full responsibility for everyone bricking due to my lazy editing. Please note the update to my guide in the "DEODEXING" section. 2.3.340 (Android update 2.2.1) is not compatible with 928Droid's current deodexed theme and trying to bootload it through bootstrap will cause you to brick. Gotta thank OMJ and GrandMaster for their patience and helping me edit this error in my guide!

I will post an update to a more practical way of theming your phone in light of 2.2.1 being released.

first and foremost make a backup through bootstrap (very important backup used for future ota and reverting to stock without having to sbf)...hers what you do do make a quick backup
open bootstrap app
select bootastrap revovery(prompt for sucess hit ok)
now select reboot recovery
now your in clockwork recovery(scroll using volume rockers,select using camera button and go back with power)
scroll to backup/restore select it
select backup and let it do its thing
once done hit the power(back button) and reboot
...now you have a backup and you can start reading about roms and themes and such..also if you want a rom dont worry about deodex as it will deodex for you upon rom installation(at least most roms do)
if all you want are themes then you will have to manually deodex prior to themeing......have fun!!!

after i received the newest update, i deodexed with xUltimate v2.2.2 and it worked with out any problems (although i still had to use adb)...i also read that if you download apex 1.3.1 it will automatically deodex the system

sorry this method is not automatic...

you can only get into stock recovery ,,,,,when you go to power the phone on just hold the power button and the home button at the same time until you see a little triangle with an exclamation point and a little android guy on screen then press your search button and the recovery options will be displayed

Someone in another thread told how he got into recovery. I tried it and it worked.

With the phone turned off, all you do is plug in the charge cord and turn the phone on. It will boot into Clockwork recovery.

No need to press or hold any buttons.

Hope this works if i need it down the road

Not exactly sure what I am doing wrong, but when I go to use RSD light with the SBF it keeps failing on me.

"failed flashing process. Failed flashing process. Unable to retrieve initialization values from INI file. (0x7029) Phone connected.

Any ideas?

** Finally figured it out shortly after this post. I guess the RSD was out dated and I picked a different SBF but running it on XP I finally got it working. The only issue I have yet to figure out is why after using the z4root and installing rom manager why am I still unable to install roms? Phone reboots I get the Motorola icon and then it goes into clock recovery. Saw a post about going into Droid X Bootstrap and hit bootstrap recovery but still did not work.


What else am i forgetting?

This will solve your problem!
ya that is the best solution i found as well!

Please help!!!

I have a droid x and was flashing a new ROM (which I think I flashed incorrectly, as in I flashed what I thought was a ROM but actually wasn't). I can get to the Clockwork Recovery (by pressing volume up and power) however when I choose to wipe the phone I get an error. When I say to wipe the cache I also get a similar error. I tried using SBF (the FROYO Droid X build) and RSDLite (I am able to get to the boot loader menu, by pressing camera, volume down, power). After running RSDLite, correctly (I have done it before) everything works up until the reboot. It gives me a progress percentage as if it is working until it gets to 100%, where it stays at 100% for hours. In the entire reboot process, my phone flashes the boot logo, turns off, flashes the boot logo, turns off, etc. This also happens anytime I try to turn it on.

Please, help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :'[

Default Rooting works with which Android versions? DroidX

I'm reading up on how to root my DroidX with 2.3.34 and I want to know which methods work with which Android versions. Is there a listing for this info? Also, my phone says it has an update 4.5.596 downloaded and ready to install. What version is that... it's not in the same sequence? Should I install it?

All I really want is wireless tethering, I don't care about other root features, but it looks like root is needed for wireless tethering now.

Welcome to AF. Your phone is in a bootloop. It was caused by flashing the CM7 rom which is based on Froyo from Apex which is Gingerbread based. I hope your "entire life" is at least on the sd card cause then it's all still there and won't be harmed during the sbf process.

If your phone has a good charge, load into bootloader mode (hold down camera and volume down and then press power button) and try using the Linux disc to sbf. It's really easy to use and comes in handy should you ever need to sbf again. This is the link to the instructions.

Linux solution to your Windows/RSD lite problems

There is a pre-rooted version of .602 there or standard nonrooted versions. Whichever version you choose to go with, make sure to check the MD5. That's just a way to verify that the file you downloaded isn't corrupt or anything. There are plenty of free programs that can check the MD5. Just do a quick search.

3 rules for rooted phones:
1. Backup apps and data
2. Verify Backup
3. Backup apps and data

It's a good idea to always backup everything after you've rooted your phone. Making a nandroid is also a good idea. That way, data isn't completely lost should something like this happen. There are many ways to do that. I personally use Titanium Backup.

Hope everything works out for you. If you have anymore questions, ask away.

I have an older rooted version of 2.3.3 on my phone, and it doesn't run very well. Can I SBF using the .602 file, or would i have to use an older SBF file?

You can use any sbf file you want. They are not version dependant. Just stay away from the 621 version.
