    Haven't found anyone else that has bricked their Droid yet.

    I was trying to change my status bar color and dropdown color. Used terminal emulator to take the apk from my sd card to the phone. rebooted, now i'm bricked.

    i'm stuck at the motorola logo.

    tried doing the 2.0.1 update again, but I get an error mentioning corporate calendar, which I deleted off the phone. whoops.

    any ideas? look like i'll be at verizon tomorrow.

    Not a helpful post.. but OUCH..

    I'll be sure to be careful if I root..

    If you can't find a fix, just play dumb with Verizon.. " Uhhh.. my phone done did died and I don't have no idea why?!" ..Lmao works every time:p

    Have you tried booting into recovery mode? You can do a factory reset from there I believe.

    Boot holding down X, press volume up and camera simultaneously when you see the exclamation mark.

    What's Verizon going to do for you? You rooted your phone thus voiding the warranty. Good luck with that!

    Which is why I said play dumb. Usually at the Verizon stores they do not check such things.. they see a dead device and replace it. Over the phone, this may not work. I completely bricked a Blackberry by installing a badly put-together hybrid(along with a few others at Crackberry), and had no problem getting a new one at the local Verizon outlet.

    Tried booting into recovery. I tried the factory reset option (I don't remember the exact wording), but it didn't help. It ran through everything, but I still got stick on the moto logo.

    Took it to the big V today and they were able to flash it to stock firmware. Works like a charm.

    Hmm.. sounds like the experts out there should be able to find out how they did that.. There really needs to be a program out there that can flash an Android phone via PC(or Mac).

    Details? What did they use to flash it, a dock/usb cable/sd card/bannana?

    I would have been leaning over that counter like a sum'bitch trying to find out ;)
