    I was messing around with the camera and suddenly it goes to the White Screen with the Motorola logo in the middle. Its just stuck there. I've pulled the battery for at least 30 minutes, tried holding down, up, camera, while turning the phone on, no luck. Every time I power it up its just the same white screen. It's doing nothing.

    Are there any other manual methods of resetting this thing? Anything that can be done through the USB cable?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Maybe you will have to do a 'Hard Phone Reset'

    1/ Switch off the phone (either removing the battery or shutting down by holding the "end call" button for few seconds
    2/ While being switched off, hold the "home" (house) and "back" (the arrow in the lower right corner)
    3/ Hit briefly the "end call" button" while still holding the "home" and "back" buttons.
    4/ Release the "home" and "back" button, a white screen containing technical information should appear, with a red message asking for hitting the "menu" button.
    5/ Hit the "menu button", the Hero will now boot with factory settings.

    Factory settings means that all information stored on the ROM (NOT your SD memory card) will be cleared.

    Don't think this will work since on the backflip the home and back buttons are on the touch screen. They are not physical buttons. The screen is useless at this startup screen :(

    Yea. Get rid of it.

    IMO the Backflip is one of the worse Android phones ever made. I would rather continue to use the G1, with its little internal memory, than ever use the Backflip.

    I'm very surprised that motorola sold any of those backflips. It's a weird design, actually more of a gimmick then design for me. :)

    +1 for that.

    IMO, it was a feeble attempt for ATT to capture a piece of the growing Android market.
