It just means that the phone is unable to boot and is starting the fail-safe RSD mode... basically allowing you to use RSD Lite to flash a new SBF (basically phone image) to the phone to restore it. Are you rooted/unlocked?

I think so i used MotorolaOneClic_oot_psouza4.zip method to root my phone. Later installed root applications like Wifi Tether... Unlocked? umm Not sure I guess so. I recently installed the Alien1 custom rom. so probably.

Did this go anywhere? I have the same issue but my phone is now dead, and when I plug it on the charger it automatically starts and goes to this screen even though I dont turn it on.

After you charge your phone(instructions in other thread) flash 154 first then newest. Make sure to charge between

That's the newest, download the 154 one and flashed it after manually charging your phone. Then flash that one
