Droid X freezing on boot
My Droid X has now decided to freeze at the redeye portion of the boot screen, after freezing up completely, forcing me to do a battery pull. Another battery pull puts me in the same position. Suggestions?

You may have to do a factory reset. I know there is a button combination to press to do this if you are stuck where you are at, but not sure what the combo is. May have to talk to Verizon, or google it.

I have a droid 2, brand new, and it locked up at the red eye during start up. It stayed locked up until I took out the battery and put it back in and that cleared it up. I do not have the phone linked to FB. I wish there was an option to be linked to FB without all the FB contacts, but that is another issue entirely.

Factory Data Reset...
Settings > Privacy > Factory Data Reset
This will put your X back to it's "out of the box" status. Your paid downloaded apps will be available afterwards from Market and won't take too long to dl and install. The free ones, you will have to dl yourself, so make a list of them ahead of time.
Also, when you re-install apps, consider that there may have been a conflict between apps and/or your X. Load your more recent dl apps LAST, so you can determine if one of them caused your problem. If you do, then uninstall it and move on.
PS - You might consider plugging your X into your PC in USB Mass Storage Mode and drag/drop all the SD card contents to a folder on your PC. This will be a backup, if needed later.
Congrats on your no-smoking campaign. Worth the effort!
