Root Can't get Droid to bootloader

Discussion in 'Android Devices' started by munkler_1988, Jul 14, 2010.

  1. I am trying to root my Droid but everytime I hold power and up on dpad it just gets stuck on a black screen. I can tell it is trying to go to the bootloader but it just doesn't go. Do I need to hold the power button while holding the dpad up? I need to know because I dropped my phone in some water a few weeks ago and it screwed my power/sleep button up a little bit. Sorry this question may be such a cluster but I'm just trying to get some tips or information on what to do. Thanks

    Well, you need to hold the power button and the "x" button on the keyboard, not the D pad button. :cool:

    no if the OP needs to get to the bootloader they need to hold the up on the dpad. if they need to get into recovery they need to hold the X.

    power + X puts you in recovery mode but, If the OP is using RSDlite to flash a recovery to his phone then .... power + up on the D-pad is correct.

    Alright. Noob moment here. Rooted when I was on 2.0.1 so never had a need to get into bootloader to flash the .sbf. Thanks for correcting me.

    Quick Boot has a boot into recovery...wonder if there is something similar to that with a bootloader option?

    Carefully re-read the thread. It is solved.

    good luck

    Easiest way for me to get into the bootloader screen is to turn my phone off. Then with the usb cord plugged into the computer plug the other end into your phone and turn on. It should take you straight to the bootloader screen.

    This thread is solved, but your method to get to bootloader must be just your phone then, because that's not how it works for most of us. I just tried it and my phone just powered on normally.

    The way to get into bootloader is to slide out the keyboard and hold the 'up' key on the d-pad while powering the phone on.
