    Droid X boots to the motorola M screen, then 'Droid' then the red eye animation. After thirty seconds the red eye freezes, and then it cycles back to 'Droid' and restarts the red eye animation. It will continue to loop like this indefinitely until a battery pull.

    Config: Stock. Lots of apps. Nothing new in the week before this problem.

    It will boot into recovery mode, but I have not tried a hard reset because I'd like to avoid losing pictures and video. Does anyone know where are pictures stored by default? Are they stored on the SD card? Will they be erased by a hard reset?

    Thanks for the help.

    Went ahead and tried the hard reset. Phone booted up fine. Setting everything up again. Pictures and vids are intact.

    Pics and videos are stored on the sd card, probably in the dcim folder, like a camera. Anything on the sd card should survive a reset, as it appears you found out.
