Default SOS Urgent Help needed!

Hi all! Need urgent assistance here as i've messed up again.. Installed dexter's motoblur rom but initial loading just struck at the boot animation. Tried to go to nandroid but couldnt enter (yellow triange with a cross). Tried reformatting sdcard and pasting back the openrecovery folder and openrecovery.zip does not work. Tried with multiple sdcards. I was thinking if the system went into the ext3 partition to look for the files instead of the fat32 one... but couldnt find a way to paste the files into ext3 partition. Any suggestions?

Thank you very much!!!!

Probably you forgot to wipe data/cache after you flashed motoblur? Some random ideas roughly in the order I would try them:
  • Double check that the FAT partition is first and bootable?
  • Double check that the SD card has no logical partitions
  • Reformat the entire SD card as FAT, primary, bootable put on OR
  • If that still doesn't work, try Motorola recovery (gallery+shutter while powering on, when you see the triangle screen press volume+shutter to get menu, select "wipe data/factory reset" and "wipe cache partition"--also note Motorola recovery uses gallery not shutter to select menu options)
  • If that still doesn't work I'd flash SBF

Hmm. You tried factory reset in Motorola recovery and it still wouldn't boot? One last thing would be to remove the sd card and see if you can boot.

Here's reverendkjr's tutorial on SBF flashing:

I think that one is fine. I shortened the filenames in my copies, though. I have a US XT720 and I've used both of these successfully (you can compare the md5sums with your file to verify we're talking about the same file):

8216de0df7bd2d025db900f1fbf708b9 UK_STR_U2_01.1E.0.sbf
082af13d2412e1cc63f8f9e530dad855 US_STR_U2_04.1E.1.sbf

Unfortunately, this is tedious but it works: charge with the battery cover off. Watch it closely. When the phone starts to boot, pull the battery out. Put it back in. It will continue charging without booting immediately. Keep an eye on it. When it starts to boot again, repeat by pulling the battery again. Repeat this for a while (3hrs?) until you believe the battery should be charged enough.
