    I'm stuck on the white screen right now and I can't get it to boot into recovery even when holding R+space+power. Is there anything else I can do? All I did was turn it off and then when i turned it back on this happened.

    Is it a white screen with the Motorola "M" logo or is it just a blank white screen?

    Well, that's good, the screen is still working. If the phone won't turn on at all then it's time to take aggressive action. First, try booting into recovery mode one more time.

    Ensure the R and SPACE keys are pressed down firmly, and no other keys are pressed. Then press the power button to turn it on, while holding those keys. If it still doesn't do anything different, then here's something a little more brutal you can do.

    You can flash the Devour's SBF file onto the phone using RSDLite, which is about the same concept as formatting your computer's hard drives and reinstalling a fresh operating system. Use the SBF file CALAND_X_01.15.08P_MONSTER_01.sbf and use the guide provided Using RSD Lite to flash an SBF file -- correctly - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum. That guide is for the Droid, however, but to get your Devour into bootloader mode you take out the battery, hold keys "E" and "R", then plug the USB cable into your phone and computer. (Step 4)

    Please note that if you flash the SBF file you will have to redo all steps to root your phone again if root access is desired.

    If something goes wrong and your phone is permanently bricked, go to a Verizon store and see if they'll just send you a new one. They did for me, even though my phone was rooted and wouldn't start up. Just say you tried to install the over-the-air update and it failed and showed you the blue bootloader screen.

    If you have questions, post back here, I had to use RSDLite and the Devour SBF twice recently.

    if you havent figured it out yet, just go back into whatever app you used to change it, make your system rewritable and click on the file then change it back from 4 to 7

    hm, well either you can unroot your phone or flash it back to its original using the SBF, and then manually rooting it
    we dont have a need for the droid x recovery as of yet, so id keep it on your sd card/computer if and when we get a custom rom/update

    Thanks.
    I made a list of all my apps and am planning to flash it back to its original "form" using the sbf.

    Three final question, however.

    How do you do this (flash the sbf)
    would doing this completely fix the problem
    and is the sbf you use the "CALAND_X_01.15.08P_MONSTER_01.sbf" file?
  12. zrad.zg

    zrad.zg Well-Known Member

    flashing the sbf-use RSDlite, doesnt matter which version of it though

    and yeah, that file is the one to use

  15. zrad.zg

    zrad.zg Well-Known Member

    did it make your phone a little laggy? cause I had to flash mine back to stock and it seemed to make it laggy and use a lot more battery life than I was using before; this is also after I manually rooted it and took off the bloatware.

    P_025 I'm trying to follow the instructions you gave me, but I'm having some issues with rsd lite not being able to flash the sbf file. Could part of this problem be because I'm using windows 7?

    used rsd lite 6.0, and it worked!

    RSD Lite will not see my Motorola Devour. Using Windows 8 (and even tried VMWare of Win7), nothing on either. Followed steps to the T.
