    OK, so I tried installing a custom ROM (tranquility, but I'm not sure that it matters).
    I had already done a nandroid backup, as well as backed up my apps using titanium backup.
    I used bootstrap recovery to install the Tranquility.zip. Now on boot I get "sometimes" past the M logo but the Tranquility logo gets stuck.
    I've tried multiple battery pulls. I've tried wiping data/ factory reset as well as wiping cache partition.

    I can't figure out how to get back to the bootstrap recovery to restore my nandroid backup at this point.

    I've also tried SBF'ing, but can't get RSDLite to enable the "Start" button.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Pull battery, hold power button and X on keyboard. Wait for triangle to appear then hit magnifying glass on keyboard. Wipe cache and wipe data then reboot.

    Windows 7 doesn't seem to be able to find the appropriate drivers automatically, whereas winXP does it just fine. If you can use somebody's computer with XP or download the appropriate drivers (32 bit or 64bit) for your system from motorola and try to SBF again, you should be ok.

    Thanks Nice. I think I've finally got things worked out. I manually downloaded and installed the drivers from USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA a number of times and am still not sure what really fixed it.
    I have RSDLite seeing the phone correctly now while in PC mode and am going to test in bootrecovery soon. I'm waiting until I get the phone re-charged a bit before experimenting too much right now :)

    Piece of advice: After the phone reboots, and RSDLite shows you a "please manually power up this device" message, DON'T PANIC. Just switch your phone back to PC mode (It will have switched when the phone reboots) and you should get a pass message in a few seconds. Also, you want the bootLOADER, not recovery (There's no such thing as boot recovery). To get to the bootloader you hold the up arrow on your keyboard while pressing the power button.
