    Ok....tried to sbf tonight using these instructions and now I'm stuck in the D2 eye loop.

    My question is how do I get out of this? Kinda nervous and don't want to screw this phone up.

    Thanks in advance.

    Status in RSD Lite is: Please manually power up this phone.

    Any help appreciated.

    I've tried again but having no luck. I can bring it back up in bootloader mode and RSD Lite will tell me it passes but when I try to reboot it I get stuck in the loop again.

    One thing I have noticed is that in the device properties window it's giving me N/A in the ESN and Technology properties.

    Any help is appreciated. I haven't got a backup phone with me at the moment.

    Got it all worked out this morning. My tired brain just wasn't working last night. I couldn't remember how to get into recovery and this morning I found it and did a cache/data wipe and it booted up fine.

    Just thought I'd update this in case anyone else had the same troubles.

    Sorry, but that happened to my first D2 at SBF and it was done. Identical issue, with a different error.

    Oops, didnt read everything, lol.

    My tired brain was having trouble remembering how to access stock recovery and I wasn't reading what I had on the computer clearly. Within 5 minutes of being awake the next morning I found the info I needed on one of the threads I had pulled up from the night before.

    The bad part is all the sleep I lost trying to figure out what I was missing. Lol

    Funny how a little bit of sleep helps.

    This was on XDA, for those that run into this, because I did too. When you get to the Droid Eye and it boot loops and RSD says "Please manually reboot your phone" do the following:

    1. Disconnect your phone
    2. Turn off your phone (you'll probably have to pull the battery)
    3. Hold down up on the keyboard
    4. Turn on the phone while continuing to hold up
    5. Connect your phone again. RSDLite should say "PASS"
    6. Disconnect your phone
    7. Turn off your phone
    8. Hold down X on the keyboard
    9. Turn on your phone while continuing to hold X
    10. When you get the Android guy with a '?' in a triangle push the search button on the keyboard
    11. Select both 'wipe cache' and 'wipe data' from the menu.
    12. Reboot your phone

    It should be noted that I didn't have a ? but a ! in the triangle, but I had no issues.

    Boot Loop FAIL on my part. That's what I get for overdoing it. Hoping the steps above work for me!! :) hahaha

    For anyone who finds this in the future, the correct order is: Clear cache and clear data/factory reset BEFORE you SBF (if you can, obviously). Also, when RSDlite says "please manually power up this phone", just go up to your USB connection and choose PC mode and hit ok, this will get you a pass message in just a few seconds.
