    got stuck on MOTO loop, just like when i tried the leaked version.
    doing SBF now.
    i wonder if it was cuz i had a different boot screen.
    will update after. SBF/cache wipe/reset

    Update : sbf not working like it did last time....now i get... on the X
    MEM_MAP Blank
    Service req'd
    OK to program.

    did the update somehow stop the old SBF file from working?
    how long before a new SBF file is out?
    need help.....thanks

    i cannot get the phone to where i can select factory restore...

    The logistics of the update are unknown this early. Time will shed additional light on it's effects.

    Have you tried doing a factory reset before attempting to SBF?

    Birdman is working on a fix but I guess Motorola really screwed us over...

    @wicked_beav my "fix" wont work sadly, i was running tests to see if my idea would work when i figured out the signatures changed :(

    Hmm..

    It still seems odd that only a few people have been having this issue.

    Where did you get the SBF File? (I can only verify the one I personally uploaded)
    Did you move the pst_flash.ini Patch to the RSD Directory?

    I'm trying to find a common link between the two of you.

    wait, so you mean you had the leak not the OTA?

    I thought from what you said you had the OTA and were downgrading to 2.1 haha.

    you should try factory resetting (Hold Pwr+Home) and SBF Flashing, as you might not have this issue.

    Yeah this message came about an hour too late. I guess I'm screwed. Any idea how long this 2.2 SBF may take to come around?

    No, Usually like 2 months, however, Birdman is working on a fix and based on his history, I wouldn't say very long. He's very reliable.

    Wait, I take that back..

    This tweet:
    my "fix" wont work sadly, i was running tests to see if my idea would work when i figured out the signatures changed :(

    Came BEFORE this one:
    Please retweet, everyones about to wake up! DO NOT DOWNGRADE TO 2.1 SBF FROM THE 2.2 OTA, YOU WILL BE BRICKED! UNTILL WE GET A 2.2 SBF LEAK

    I'm Afraid that means that all those with this issue are going to have to wait until the sbf is actually leaked.. which means an employee with access to the sbf would have to leak it to the public.

    I had the same issue with the stuck on "M" screen and all I did was pull the battery out and put it back in and it booted fine.

    I did a cache wipe, factory reset and finally a battery pull before everything worked lol


    I'm glad I backed up my apps before doing this upgrade.
