    I managed to semi-brick my phone over the weekend while trying to make it stop booting into bootstrap recovery after removal from the AC charger.

    Following some advice on another forum, I went into /system/bin and renamed hijack and logwrapper. But in my half-asleep, awake-for-24-hrs stupor, I missed the part about renaming logwrapper.bin to logwrapper. So now I'm stuck at the boot logo.

    I can boot into the original Droid 2 recovery screen, but neither a factory reset nor a cache clearing seem to do the trick. My only other option is "install from SD card".

    This leaves me two choices:

    1) Use that to load some sort of batch/shell file that does the final rename for me.

    2) Use it to re-install the original VRZ_A955_2.3.20 sfb file and get the original Gingerbread back, and hope that it has the files I need.

    Option 1 seems like it should be enough, but I don't know how to get the phone to run a script automatically via the SD card install.

    Has anyone else tried something like this?
