    im running ics build 3 and it was running perfectly until my menu button stopped working for everything so i tried to do a simple reboot but upon rebooting it is stuck at the motorola symbol

    i tried to access the stock recovery but when i hold the home+power and releasing the power nothing is happening

    i understand i will need to sbf but is it possible from here?

    with the home button no longer functioning... not 100% sure

    if your trying to return it, sbf will remove everything and consistently bootloop to the moto splash screen, and since you cant get into the home recovery to wipe data and cache, i suspect you wont have to worry about a whole lot if you need to turn the phone in, as thats the first thing they will do, is wipe data and cache from it
