Okay, I've scavenged the forums for some answers, and so far nothing has worked, so I figure I'll challenge anyone who might be able to answer this one: My Droid Eris started a boot loop about 2 days ago (the usual complaint - the skateboarding droids, the htc logo, then verizon and htc endless loop). I went to do a soft reset, removed the battery, did a hard reset, nothing works - but here's the kicker - when it loads the fastboot/recovery/clear storage/simlock screen, it says that my file PB00IMG.zip is the wrong image and jumps off the screen within 2 seconds as it loads. I cannot get my computer to mount either - it does not always recognize it, and when it does, it will not let me in to the SD card to overwrite another one. Periodically, it even gives me a lovely phone with red triangle and an exclamation point. If I had to guess, I'm assuming that that file is the core to me booting the OS (which is still the stock OS at this point)...but somehow it is not working. Or maybe its more than just that... I'm not really sure what to go into next - I know more about playing with registry errors on a desktop than phone software - but I'm willing to tinker and learn. I'm open to any ideas since I have a backup phone temporarily while I make it the 7 days to my next upgrade, but would really like to get this one working if I can. I can't send it in to verizon, since they are saying that it is "water damaged" (even though it has never touched water!) and want to charge me 90 dollars for a refurbished one.
