  8. if the phone says starting fastboot protocol support and when i connect the phone to the system the system does not see the phone

  9. This bricked my phone, getting failed to boot 0 X 1000 on startup, then turns off. Tried flashing after gingerblur OTA, there was no warning here, please add for others.

  10. just wont detect my phone

  11. If you do this after the gingerbread OTA you will brick your device.

  12. 1.6.2 restores gingerblur?

  13. I hard bricked my phone using this method. There should have been a warning stating to not use this method if you had gingerbread.

    • How bricked are we talking, the 0 X 1000, or a boot loop? Does adb detect it? Mine got the 0 X 1000, Motorola replaced it because I still had warranty and said I was having issues with GB and flashed Froyo to try to solve it. But if it’s a minor problem, I may be able to help.

  14. My rooted and unlocked bl is stuck in boot loop after trying to flash a custom ROM. NEED HELP ASAP
