Hah i think i may have. Ill let you know what i was doing when this all happened. I was trying to replace the default boot animation with the r2d2 animation. i originally just tried putting the bootanimation.zip in the system/media folder like on the Droid. then i found that the boot animation for motoblur phones is located in system\framework\framework-res\assets\image Removing or replacing Bootanimation I tweaked the framework apk and put in a few test images then went to go replace the stock one that was in the framework folder. Apparently there was not enough room and instead of just stopping the copy process it seemed that root explorer deleted the original apk without replacing it with the new one. I forgot that my original bootanimation.zip was still in the system/media folder so i didnt have enough room to copy the new file to the framework folder. afterwards root explorer force closed and and wouldnt let me reopen it. then the system seemed to keep looping force close errors and i tried to reset the phone. Once i reset the phone is now stuck at the white M bootscreen. If i am able to fix this im pretty sure ill be able to get custom bootscreens on the devour the same way they did with the backflip in the link i posted. any thoughts? and thanks for reading!
