    Did you try booting into bootstrap before re-rooting after the OTA? I did this today since I had to unroot to go into VZW then tried restoring via CWM forgetting I wasn't rooted. I pulled the battery, went home, rooted, and was able to install the D3Bootstrapper apk.

    The bootstrap app was upgraded so without uninstalling the old cwm i deleted the old bootstrap app and rebooted the phone... At this point I was already successfully rooted and I was trying to flash steel droid... but when i tried to reboot into cwm it doesn't work and my phone is boot looping! I cannot afford to buy a new phone now and I really need help...

    Can you get into Android recovery with X+Power then Vol down + Vol up (I believe that's the vol. button sequence)?

    When I press x and power on i get a screen that says...


    -----------------------------------------------------
    AP Fastboot Flash Mode (S) (Boot Failure)
    0A.53



    Battery Low
    Cannot Program
    Connect USB
    Data Cable


    Invalid CG Version (CG: Recovery)
    --------------------------------------------------------

    I am gone for the weekend but when I get back I will put in my brothers battery and see how it works then. I think if it has a full battery i should be able to flash the stock sbf with rsd-lite, then root and use the original bootstrap that I know works to get one of my backups running. Do you think this will work?

    I did psouzas unbrick for droid 3 and on the last step, the temporary recovery.bat said "error: Device not found" then the recovery didnt work!

    I figured out how I bricked it. I attempted to install koush's bootstrap before uninstalling hashcode's... Please everybody I need help!

    I would suggest booting normally, uninstalling then reinstalling the bootstrapper, then try booting into CWM via power+m. Are you able to boot normally? Have you made a Nandroid backup of this phone prior to getting stuck at boot looping? If so, I'd say SBF, root, Nand restore, upgrade, boot normally, root, install bootstrapper, NAND BACKUP!, then try flashing the ROM.
