    i attempted a root after using many methods that just would not work. tonight i tried the method of using easyroot and that went terribly wrong. i put the update and sprecovery files on the SD via RSD lite. now my phpone shoes a red battery with a slash through it, and wont stay on. the phone shows no reception. I tried a factory reset, still no success. is there a means of clean install of the operating system?

    next time i'll leave it to the experts! any help would be greatly appreciated! thanks!

    Welcome to the forums, ragan.502.

    Hang in there, I've moved your query to the All Things Root sub-forum for your device; someone will come along with help in Droid rooting issues.

    We need for you to post the exact files and methods you used for future reference. Also we ARE going with the assumption that you are using a Motorola A855 phone. Fortunately for you judging from the results you have posted I know the you used the "SPRecovery_ESE81.sbf" file via RSD Lite and that is where you went wrong. You are correct, you need to restore your phone to a totally stock software. Start here:
