    I was mucking around on my phone trying to get emoji to display in my text messages, and ended up in the endless reboot cycle. I tried restoring to stock, but now the blur setup crashes while I try to go through the setup.

    The setup crash is my fault. In trying to create space on /system I moved some of the files in /system/apps (blur apk and odx files) to my sdcard-ext.

    I downloaded Blur_Version.4.1.57.MB860.ATT.en.US.zip from Motorola and renamed update.zip. Put that on my sd card and tried the android recovery but the process errors out with:

    Error in /tmp/sideload/package.zip
    status 73
    installation aborted

    I tried using fastboot thinking I could move those files back to the proper place on my internal SD but even though the system sees it connected, I can't access the internal SD.

    Is there a way out of this?

    I think (somehow) you managed to move/delete files that the system needs at the core to even be able to flash a ROM.

    I'm going to say you are probably going to have to call Motorola support on this one.

    That, or you can try to unlock the bootloader (In for a penny, in for a pound, right?) and load a custom ROM like CM7. Just remember that unlocking the bootloader blows the eFuse. This voids the warranty, and prevents you from ever installing an official ROM/Update again.

    Well I found a method to use RSD and an SBF file, but unfortunately although the battery was fully charged when I started the flash process, it died and the battery wasn't accepting a charge anymore. I did call AT&T and they are shipping me a replacement.

    Good thing I held on to my IPhone.
