    I was in the process of rooting
    RSD Lite said the SPRecoveryESE81.sbf failed
    I unplugged my droid
    now it's stuck on the screen
    Bootloader
    2c.6c
    Code Corrupt
    Battery Low
    Cannot Program

    I've tried everything, looked at different threads from many different websites, turned it off, pulled battery, tried charging it via wall charger, everything. Am I totally bricked?

    Give us a little more info... how long did u let it charge? After u did the battery pull did it go right back into the bootloader and display the EXACT info above? If so can u try a friend's charged battery? Can u download another sbf file? When u restarted can u plug it into ur computer and will rsdlite see it there?

    before it went to the low battery cannot program screen it was in "okay to program: usb" or something like that and i tried reflashing the same sbf onto it when the computer still recognized it, and it failed. didn't think to get another sbf until it got on the low battery screen.
    4 hours charging
    the EXACT info
    took the sd card out, put the battery back in, same screen.
    put the sd card back in, put the battery back in, same screen
    i could possibly try someone elses battery.
    i;ve downloaded another sbf file but the computer wont recognize my droid at all, not in the explorer (obviously) or in rsd lite.

    Ok. I think you need to acquire a fully charged battery. Once you do that, try installing the new SBF file via RSDLite, providing it recognizes your Droid.

    I think the only way it's FUBAR is if the bootloader got corrupted. However, I'm not sure that happened. I read somewhere on this forum that if the battery gets too low, RSDLite can't program because the phone won't let it. I remember this specifically because I thought "That doesn't make sense because the phone draws its power from USB." Then they went on to explain elsewhere in the thread that it doesn't draw power from USB while the phone is in recovery or bootloader. I don't remember the subject of the thread. It was about two or three months ago because that's when I rooted my wife's Droid.

    Now, for those of you thinking of rooting, never NEVER try it unless you have more than 50% battery... IMO, you're playing with fire if you do.
