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.

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