    [SOLVED!!]

    OK im not sure if this post is in the right location but here's my dilemma:

    I have a rooted motorola cliq and adb on my computer but recently i was trying to "unprotect" my market by editing the build.prop file in my phone's system.
    CMD prompt was giving some weird "cross device link" error whenever i tried to copy the new edited build.prop from my sd card and replace the old system file so i decided to use an app instead, root explorer. the app worked perfectly, the problem is that i made an error in the edited file...
    I deleted the line that starts with "ro.build.fingerprint=" like i was suppose to but i made a copy n paste error from the website i was using

    (heres a link: androidforums. com/spica-all-things-root/98024-protected-app-market-fix-tutorial-build-prop. html

    and i replaced that line with
    "ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.1-update1/ESE81/29593:user/rel (rest of lines)"
    instead of
    "ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.1-update1/ESE81/29593:user/release-keys (rest of lines)"

    (Ill attach the bad build.prop and the original so you can see what i mean)

    Ok here come the main issue:
    I didnt catch my mistake and i reset my phone to factory settings like the next step says to (i backed my apps up using mybackup which saves to the sd)
    but when my phone turned back on, it repeadadly says that
    "Sorry!
    The process "(EVERY SINGLE PROCESS)" has shut down unexpectedly. Please try again"
    I can see the motoblur screen in the back and in between pop ups i can click next and get the phone to the main menu which is completely blank
    even the process "HOME" wont open. Luckily, in between fighting the pop ups of "this process has shut down" i can manage to get the phone to turn on usb mode. I COULD EASILY FIX MY PROBLEM BY EDITING THE build.prop but i need a way to get into my system folders, not sd card. On my computer, if i type adb devices in cmd is doesnt list any devices so cmd wont help me here...
    SOMEONE PLEASE LET ME KNOW HOW TO GET INTO THE SYSTEM FILES W/O ADB but with USB DRIVE
    THANKS IF YOU READ THIS FAR and wish me luck!!!

    P.S please recommend me to some other android help forums or anywhere i can get help is appreciated. this doesnt seem like it should be that hard a problem to fix...

    SOLVED!!
    I fixed my phone on my own SO maybe someone else will use this too one day.
    HERES HOW:
    I was able to access recovery mode and from there i discovered the sd update option.
    It took hours of research and work but i learned alot about adb,motorola, cliq, etc.

    Anyway, i originally found the Blur_Version.2.1.5.MB200.T-Mobile.en.US.zip and i tried to put that in my sd card (i could get into it from the phone) but when i tried to update using recovery it gave me an error so i decided to try the "latest 1.5 with Blur 1.6.1" which was actually very hard to find... you can get it here
    motorola. com/staticfiles/Support/Experiences/sdcards/US-EN/tmo/cliq/downgrade-to-cupcake .html

    Lastly, i put that on my sd as update.zip, went into recover, and the update was SUCCESSFUL! MY PHONE REBOOTED AND NOW IS ACTING NORMAL AGAIN. Now, im trying to update to the Android™ 2.1 (Eclair):
    motorola. com/staticfiles/Support/Experiences/sdcards/US-EN/tmo/cliq/2-1_index. html
    but im still getting that error whether i update using recovery or the settings/about phone/system update option... Thats strange but my phone is still working normally and ill find a way to update to 2.1...

    THANKS TO ANDROIDFORUMS AND HOPEFULLY THIS POST WILL WORK FOR SOMEONE ELSE WHO MAY BE HALF-BRICKED (no adb, no usb debug, no root explorer) THERS STILL HOPE IN RECOVERY+USB DRIVE+BLUR VERSION SOFTWARES
