    Wasn't sure where to post this, but since I rooted it first, I figured I start here. The main issue is reinstalling my factory settings.


    Background Info About My Droid X - It has the latest OTA update. It been rooted a few times and unrooted, but overall it be pretty stable and reliable. Today, I decided to "attempt" to install Apex Rom. Unfortunately, I didn't make it that far.

    1st - I rooted my Droid X with z4root from the link provided on this site. Everything went great.

    2nd - I did a little more reading and download Droid X Bootsrapper. I installed it and click "Bootsrap Recovery" (which was successful) and then "Reboot Recovery" to reboot.

    3rd - I waited and waited and waited. All I got was the "M" logo, then the "Red Droid Eye" logo, and then the "DROID" logo. The last two logos then started a continuous loop.

    4th - Quite puzzled, I did some more reading and decided to try recovery mode. I removed the battery and reinstalled it, then held the power button and home button...then release the home button and press search button.

    5th - While I was in recovery, I hit the update.zip and it said something about E: Signature Verification Failed. Also, there is a message at the bottom that says "E: Can't open /cache/recovery/command

    6th - So I decided to wipe the phone clean and the cache, but this still resulted in step 3.

    Basically, I would like to get back to factory settings so I can 1) have a functional phone and 2) try this again in the near (or distance) future ;-)

    P.S. - Please help!!!

    I wiped it clean/factory reset again and still having the same problem. Do the Can't open recovery at the bottom have anything to do with it?

    I downloaded "maderstcok340.zip". Not sure if that's the file I need.

    Make sure your battery is over 50% when you sbf, or you're toast. (translation= you'll have to take your battery to verizon and have them charge it back up so you can sbf.)
