    My X is stuck on the M logo. I cannot seem to get the right driver installed for rsdlite to see the phone. I am just trying to sbf back to a working phone. Need help ASAP!

    try USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola, Inc. USA

    or you can also try a factory reset if you can get into the stock recovery
    turn off phone
    hold home button then power button
    when you see the M let go of the power but hold the home untill you see the recovery screen
    then hit the search button
    and perform a factory reset.

    my guess is you forgot to mount system when installing a rom right?
    try those drivers. the SBF will work i have done it several times.
    are you using PC? XP,Vista,7?

    that is a good sign. is the percentage going up? it will check the file then the percentage will start over as it is actually flashing it.
    after it is finished you may still need to do a factory reset from recovery.

    So i got the phone back up and running, now the problem is there is no storage space on the phone. any ideas?

    Will all of my apps sync or do i have to reload them all?

    not sure why there is no storage space.
    you apps will sync from the market it just takes a little time once you sign in to your account.

    I installed a theme (before bedtime) and guess I should have mounted it first (even tho it said mounting was optional) so ended up in forced-close hell and wasn't able to unlock, let alone go into recovery. I messed with it a bit, tried battery pulls, clearing the cache and finally gave up and went to bed.

    So, when I woke at 3 a.m and couldn't get back to sleep due to my mess, I downloaded RSDLite and TheGift2 in preparation for doing my first SBF after work.

    After work, I installed RSDLite, installed the battery and plugged my phone in the usb port and was surprised as heck when CW Recovery comes up on the screen. WTF? RSDLite wasn't even running and I didn't even turn on the phone. How does that work?

    I've seen the charging indicator come up, but never CW recovery, especially when I needed it. It was like watching the cavalry show up. :D

    I always change to "charge only" before disconnecting my usb port and was concerned I'd be in the same mode and not be able to access it from RSD Lite.

    BTW, my current favorite black bar theme is the one in your sig. The others are nice, but their transparent status bar lets the background bleed thru and distracts from the appearance.
