    Hi, I need a little assistance please!
    I have a droidX running 2.3 gingerbread ( stock, not rooted).

    I don't know what happened but I can't get past the initial Motorola icon when starting the phone, it gets stuck there.

    I tried the following:

    • pulled battery and SD card many times

    • try to access menu for a reset via instructions i found:
    hold home,hold power, release power when Motorola icon appears, however it never brings me to the android and exclamation point.

    • hold all buttons + press power i get:

    Bootloader
    30.04

    Battery OK
    OK to Program
    Connect USB
    Data Cable

    ------------
    Little history:
    issue started while i was away for a few days, when i got home i simply plugged it into my usb/windows7 and it booted up by itself and has been working fine again for a few days now.

    now all the sudden its back to the same thing.
    Both times all was working normal, then my 4 hardware buttons stopped responding, the screen still functioned fine. when i rebooted the phone, it went into this state. This is now the second time, and again it started with loss of the 4 hardware buttons before i rebooted it.

    I don't know anything about ROMs or rooting, am i at a point where i need to reinstall the OS?
    Plugging it onto my computer makes no difference this time around.

    Any info would help
    thanks!

    (this is the original droidX, not the droidX2)
