    Pull the battery and see if that gets you running. If not go into stock recovery and wipe data/factory reset and you should be good to go.

    ok...

    1. you installed it from stock RECOVERY not the bootloader...you're going to confuse yourself by getting bootloader and recovery mixed up...

    2. did you do a data wipe/factory reset while in stock recovery?...if you can get back to recovery i would try that...

    the reboots - I see the new red Motorola M and then it goes to the bootloader screen. If I hold down home when powering on it does nothing.

    Pull the batt

    install the batt

    hold down power and home

    once the logo appears release power but continue to hold home

    once the android with the ! appears release home and press the volume up and down together.

    well i'd like to see you try to get into stock recovery a couple more times for HAHA's...

    then im going to ask you how much battery power you had left before you got into this problem

    alright...well you're going to have to go to the following website

    Droid X SBF

    you're going to need RSDLite 4.9...the Motorola Drivers...and the Current SBF File...they are all available from that site...

    sometimes the site is a little slow...you can get the SBF file from here

    Index of ./DroidX/SBFs/2.2/

    you want the bottom file...

    once you get all that installed we can work on actually SBFing

    no real need to wait for the OTA, you've just done the most difficult thing you would encounter, I, personally would try again, but that's how I am, kinda stubborn.

    Metfanant wouldn't the full SBF file be better? The last one is system files only if i'm not mistaken right? I couldn't get that one to work. I had to use the full one with the SBF file extention and it finally worked right.

    Then that has to be a different file from the one i downloaded a few months ago cause when I went to uncompress the file i have it didnt't give me an SBF file. It gave me system files.

    Yeah it's a different file. Good to know though. I downloaded this one from your link just to have it.

    I am tempted to try again. Could it be that I was rooted with Apex running, then flashed maderstock back to stock & unrooted? If not that I am not sure what I could have done wrong.

    maderstcok flashes gave people all sorts of trouble when upgrading to the leaked GingerBlur builds...that is why the instructions clearly state that you should SBF back to stock to get ready for Gingerbread..

    So now that I have sbf'd back to stock Froyo there is a better chance the stock gb update.zip will work?

    Yes. I don't understand why people still try using the Maderstock file. It has been made well know for weeks that it is notoriously unreliable for fixing GB issues.
