Do not use BandroidX recovery for any rom except for BravoX

ok to program
(BravoX is a lightweight, deodexed stock rom). Use Defy 2nd-init -- Defy 2nd-init -- Defy 2nd-init
Anyways, that's the screen to flash an sbf -- if its going there directly when you power up your phone and you're not pressing anything then your Bravo is in a semibrick state -- meaning the only fix is to flash the sbf and start over.
You just need to flash the sbf and install a proper recovery solution.
You only need to install Defy 2nd-init once (per sbf flash). Also, all custom roms on the Bravo come with Defy 2nd-init already installed so DO NOT INSTALL A CUSTOM RECOVERY ONCE YOU'RE RUNNING A CUSTOM ROM
. Its pointless*.
*Unless you're testing some version of Touch recovery -- only recommended for advanced users.
Follow the directions in these two links and you'll be back in action in no time

Once you get the hang of it you'll be able to go from sbf to custom rom in under 10 minutes and lol at yourself for being stuck with a simple problem. On my first week of having a Bravo I was stuck on boot at the red M. Couldn't figure out what was wrong. Tried everything I knew and ended up low battery bricking myself. Managed to get a charge and accessed the screen with an ! in the triangle and an andriod -- didn't know what to do on that screen -- got lucky and happened to hit both volume buttons and access stock recovery (took me 3 days to figure out how to access stock recovery btw
), did a factory reset there and my Bravo was fully working again. Problem was I didn't factory reset before flashing CM7 when coming from stock...Also, Bravo's 3g was my only internet at the time.
Wow, after looking back I just realized how much I've learned in my 1.5 years with a Bravo. Gotta love XDA for all the knowledge you can obtain here.
crap isn't necessarily directed at you, just bolding it so it sticks out and hopefully helps someone else out -- I've answered questions similar to this and the solution is always "Don't use BandroidX Recovery"
