    Hell was hoping someone would take the time and help me. I have a droid x running gingerbread 2.3.3
    I wanted to root it so i went and used PetesMotorolaRootTools_v1.07 to root it. I followed all the instructions and downloaded everything correctly. When i run the progam and it gets to "Rebooting your phone", my phone just sits on the bootloader screen and does nothing. Then i have to take out my battery and restart the phone.
    If someone could help me I'd really appreciate it, thank you.

    This is becoming a fairly common issue, I ran into it as well. All you have to do is unplug the usb cable from the phone right when it reboots, wait till you get to the boot animation and plug the cable back in. This will make it so it doesn't get stuck in bootloader. Do it for all the reboots and you should be good to go.

    Hope this helps.

    I had the same issue and unplugging the USB cable sorted it out.

    Glad I found this. I'm stuck in a bootloop after SBFing using the newest SBF file I could find (.602). Can't wait to try this when I get home. Resorting to my old LG Ally just isn't getting it done for me :(

    Hahaha I know what you mean, I came from the Ally as well. It was good while it lasted, but the DX is just so much better.

    Nooooo comparison. Even flashed the newest, shiniest ROM I could for the old thing, it's just not the same as the X. Anyways, here goes another attempt at unbricking it.


    Update - no dice. I have a different problem, but I was hopeful that this would fix my issue. After searching high and low, I'm just going to start another post to see if anyone else has experienced this, or if anyone has other ideas. But unfortunately I think my flashoholic ways just caught up with me :-(
