    I tried to install Gingerbread on the Droid 2, and the installation was aborted by Koush's bootstrap. When I tried to reboot, it just went into the the stock bootloader.

    It says "battery ok, ok to program, transfer mode: USB"

    I have no idea what to do

    Is my phone ruined?

    Please help!

    Sounds like you're in bootloader mode. Think you can just reboot without a problem. Try a battery pull an restarting your phone.

    i tried a battery pull...left battery out of phone for 10 minutes, then tried to turn the phone back on. it went right back into the bootloader screen.

    I don't have any idea how to move forward. This sucks so bad:/

    At the top of the screen it also says "Err: A5, 69, 35, 00, 3D"

    Ok. You may have installed something you shouldn't have.

    Here's a thread dealing with a similar problem to yours. You might have to sbf your phone, which basically means reload a stock firmware using a desktop program called rsdlite. You'll need some juice in your battery to accomplish this.

    I just tried to reload the bootloader using RSDLite and I'm getting an error on the phone. It says "Critical Error FEBE 0047".

    In RSDLite it says error sending JUMP Command.

    Any ideas?

    could be corrupt SBF file, redownload and/or compare md5 checksum
    2.3.20 should be
    md5: 35f8667698e7081f5c8753613abd37f2
    MD5 Checker
