    Hi Gang!

    Greetings to everyone!! Need a little help please...

    Up until last night my Droid X was running stock 2.3.3 Gingerbread but things had gotten a little glitchy, screens would hang, etc.. so I decided to root it and install a different rom to see if it would function a little better.

    Rooted the device using "Pete's Motorola Root Tools" simple and to the point. Then downloaded and installed "Droid X Bootstrapper" and using it installed "liquid_shadow-ota-eng.v3.0.zip" rom. Everything went off without a hitch, rom was loaded and the phone actions were much smoother however, my camera wouldn't function.

    This morning, I decided to flash it back to OEM Gingerbread so using RSD Lite v4.9 and VRZ_MB810_4.5.596_1FF_01.sbf, I commenced to flash it back. Everything was working fine and I received a message something like "please manually boot your device" and this is where it hung...

    I see the red "M" and then the red flashy eye like thingy and then "Droid" but this is all I get! I tried to go back into boot loader 30.04 but I receive "Battery too low, cannot program". It is now plugged into my laptop via USB (hopefully charging??), it is now bouncing between the bootup sequence that I described earlier and a blank screen with the green notification LED lit up...

    What to do, what to do??? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Welcome to Android Forums DementedGeek, (great name btw)

    what has happened is simple, you forgot to wipe data and cache through stock recovery.

    it happens

    remove the battery

    put it back in
    push home+power, and when it turns on, release power, but continue holding the home button

    then you will see the droid exclamation mark, then from there for froyo you hit the search key to get into the menu
    for gingerbread, you hit both vol up and vol down rockers, to access the menu

    from there simple wipe data/factory reset
    and wipe cache partition

    then reboot, it will take about 2-5 minutes to boot, and then your all set.

    any other questions please feel free to respond!

    Many Thanks VoidedSaint!

    Looks like everything is back up and running...

    Can you suggest any roms with good all around functionality (including the camera) for the Droid X running 2.3.3?
