    Good evening people,
    To start off, I don't need to mention it,( because I'm sure you can tell, that I'm a complete noob at all of this), am currently using a Droid X, with the (forced update).621. I am not liking my current provider, so, I plan on switching carriers soon. In the mean time, I am trying to learn how to root my phone, and flash the rom. I think I have got myself into a corner. I successfully rooted my phone, using a borrowed rooting program. I then downloaded the titanium backup from the website and put it on my SD card. I also downloaded a couple of ROMs which I planned on trying out later. I then downloaded Clockwork Mod's Droid X bootstrap recovery pay version, and the rom manager pay version.
    So far, I have run the bootstrap recovery,
    -flashed clockwork mod recovery
    -tried to reboot into recovery mode.
    Now when the program tried to reboot into recovery mode, the screen goes this eery color of grey and sits there until I pull the battery. Nothing happens. Is there anyone out there who can help me figure out where I am going wrong?

    Is there anybody out there? Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone home?
    Am I barking up the wrong tree? Is anyone still using the Droid X, or is it too old and antiquated?

    Question for you, what happens to the apps that I have downloaded. I allready did a factory reset, and it was a pain in the keister to pre- download all the apps I once had, and get the settings to where I want them. Second, have you heard about this for. 621,: 621_stock_rooted_deodexed_kY-Signed.zip
    I read it will help with flashing a new rom for this update. Any help is appreciated

    most people backup apps with titanium backup or rom toolbox, and restore after flashing a rom
    it doesn't really make flashing roms easier, it is a rom
    it was an early option when 604 milestone sbf, was needed to root
    now 621 can be rooted with magic md5

    I don't know if you can help, but I did everything you said from your link. I think the phone is stuck in boot loop. It boots only up to the M logo, then freezes. If I pull the battery, I can get it into the bootloader menu, if that helps me any. I must have tried to install a bad file.

    did you wipe cache? if so you could try wiping data or you need to flash 621 sbf

    Yes, I did wipe the cache. Thank you for the link, but I'm primarily using a Mac. Do you have another link for osx 10? I am unable to get it past the Motorola Logo screen, unless I pull the battery. I can, however get to the bootloader screen. Does this mean I have to push a rom onto the phone from my mac?

    file was bad, used wrong gaaps, or missed a step
    i don't have a md5 checker for mac Link
    may be one on www.download.CNET.net

    think you need to flash 621.sbf with sbf_flash, link in my list
    if that's too much try ezSBF 604 milstone for dx, link under dx in my list

    Sorry I haven't been on for a while. I went to click on your "ezsbf" link, and it looks like someone messed with it. It goes to some bogus web page about cell phones. Do you have any other links for me to try. Yes, I ported my number to the x I had brand new in box. Which as it turns out, I rooted without knowing. I am not going to try to mess with this one too much until I figure out what went wrong with the other one. Thanks for your time.

    can you quote the link, I'm not sure which one you are referring to
    you want the DX2 ezSBF or DX ezSBF
    was it this one ezSBF/ RSD lite/ SBFs/ moto drivers by 1KDS
    if so just use the alt site
    looks like 1kds.tk is down

    Which as it turns out, I rooted without knowing.
    how did you do that? you have to run a program to root

    I took the stock x right out of the box, and used the program I was given to try and root it. It didn't do the same thing that the dx did with re-starting three times. I thought if didn't take. When I switched over, fully, I found the superuser program in the app tray. That's when I realized I successfully rooted the x.
