    So I am new to Android and rooting and have gotten stuck. I upgraded to 2.2 through ClockworkMod Recovery and got Froyo up and running. I thought I could get my apps back from Bootstrap recovery so I tried to run that from the recovery before I upgraded and now when I boot I am stuck at the Motorola screen. I tried pulling the battery out but end up with the same problem. Am I screwed?

    You are not screwed. You can boot into recovery mode and providing your made a backup you can restore that.


    1. [*]Turn your phone off.
      [*]Hold down “Home” and press “Power” until the Motorola logo appears.
      [*]Release ”Power” and continue to hold “Home” until an exclamation appears.
      [*]Release “Home” and press the “Search” button once.
      [*]Your phone will now enter recovery. ​

    So I got the recovery page up, at the bottom it says

    E: Can't open /cache/recovery/command

    Is this a problem? I made the original recovery file with Bootstrap and that was the file I originally tried to load when I had this problem.

    The other options are
    reboot system now
    apply sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition

    That's what I tried, it went through the steps in about 5 minutes and reset itself and then the motorola logo just came back up.

    I'd try clearing the cache and reboot. If that doesn't work, perform a factory reset and reboot. If all else fails, flash it back to 2.1 and try the upgrade again.

    I tried clearing the cache and then did the factory reset and it is still stuck on the Motorola sign. I am working on trying to flash back to 2.1 but now my battery is dead. Will it charge in this state?

    you have to flash the SBF....that is your only option...download RSD lite and apply the patch then flash the SBF...then BAM your back to a brand new X

    That is what I am trying to do now, I was trying at work on my mac through VMWare but had problems with it failing early on in the process and now my battery is dead. Any idea if the battery will charge in this state? Currently I am letting my fiancee's charge up so I can steal her battery and then I'm going to try it on a Vista computer.

    On another note, I reinstalled Easyroot and ClockworkMod Recovery to try and install Froyo again. Now when I try to reboot into recovery or reboot and install Froyo my phone just restarts and starts back up normally, anyone know any reason it isn't loading into recovery?
