Droid X Issue
Okay so I was installing a JRummy rom on my DroidX and I downloaded the rom. I rebooted and reformatted my data, cache, and system and then I went to install zip from sd card and couldnt find it so i assumed it failed. Well now that ive reformatted everything my phone wont boot into anything and I can only boot into system recovery. From there I tried to just update from a stock/signed update.zip and i keep getting an error. I tried to sbf but my computer wont recognize it at all.
So now I'm sitting here with a droidx that wont boot past the Motorola logo.
I'm sure its probably an easy fix, I just cant wrap my mind around how to do it. Someone please give me a hand.

Put that SD card in you comp, make sure the file is named "update" and try again. You have nandroid backups I assume?

Could be. Make sure you install both 32 and 64 bit versions (or if you know you OS, then that one)
Yeah it's not working still. The computer wont recognize it while its at the M or in the system recovery.
Any other suggestions?
I tried an update again and this is the entire error.
"Install from sdcard
Finding update package
Opening update package
Verifying update package
Installing update package
file_getprop: failed to stat "/system/build.prop
E:Error in /sdcard/update.zip

How did you dl it. In recovery go to install from zip. If you dl from net on your phone go to download folder and look for dx gummyjar. If you dl it from rom manager its in clockwork download droid2files. There was no need to rename it to anything.

Are you running the computer as an administrator? How long is the M stuck?

Yes I know how to put the zip on my card guys thats not the issue. I've been flashing and modding for over a year, I've got that down.
xliderider: Yeah I'm using my adapter to put it on. And I don't see an option to "allow", just "apply sdcard:update.zip"
tntdroid: theyre talking about making sure my update.zip file is name correctly, not the rom I downloaded through rom manager.
johnly: It will sit at the logo until the battery dies.

Flash .320 SBF and then use the patches that xliderider gave in bootstrapper
once you're back up and running. I'm curious as to if you're actually in the
bootloader or Moto recovery? When I SBF'd I got into the bootloader by
turning the phone on and then holding the volume down button/camera button.
Edit: It may have been volume up/camera button.
