    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.

    Sounds like you need to install drivers from Motorola

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

    Yeah it's named 'update'. I didnt think about the drivers thing though, im reinstalling them now to see if that will work.

    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

    Do you have a micro sd card to usb adapter? That's what Johnly meant, to put the card in your computer and change the file name, if needed, to update.zip

    Make sure the file isn't named update.zip.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?

    Did you select "Allow update.zip" before selecting "Install update.zip"?

    When trying to run a sbf it needs to be in bootloader. Turn off phone. Hold power home and volume down till it shows bootloader. Hook to usb and open rsd.

    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.

    Okay, thanks. I forgot how to boot into the bootloader. I'll just do that and I'll be on my way.

    Actually one more favor. I can't find a current sbf file anywhere. Someone want to give me a link, I'll keep looking in the meantime but I'll keep refreshing the tab to see if someone beats me to it.

    Tried it, and now I'm getting this error in RSD

    "Chipset type 50 is not supported"

    then once I press start I get...

    "Failed flashing process. Failed flashing process. Unable to receive values from INI file"

    What sbf system file are you flashing? 2.3.340, 2.3.320?

    I couldnt find a full sbf of either so im still trying to use 2.3.15. Its the one Ive used in the past then just updated ota. but now im back to square one, ive got it on the bootloader screen but my computer wont recognize my phone. I cant figure out why.

    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.

    Yeah, different bootloader versions in 315 and 320/340, that might be the source of that error you are getting. As Forever29 posted, try getting a copy of the 2.3.320 system sbf.

    OP, if you need it I have the full. 320 sbf. Once installed all you need to flash are the patches on bootstrap.
