[Q] Phone freezes during boot, stuck on rethink possible

My phone started the day by not booting after a reboot. It stops at rethink possible and the screen will stay on forever and do nothing. If I swipe the fingerprint I get a double vibe like it didn't accept the scan. The only thing I have done to the phone is rooting it.

I did notice one thing this morning. I took it out of the laptop dock and the icon for the dock stayed there even after I then put it in the car dock. I then rebooted it because it had frozen and never came back up. Help!

At me too, my atrix was freeze on loading screen "rethink possible". That I wanted to make all before, to reboot it.
I tried to pull out a battery but unsuccessfully, always freeze on boot screen.
Please help me, i really don't know what i need to do.
And i can't call to motorola support because I live in Russia.

Help

I am not home at the moment, so I will post links to flashing sbf guides after I get home tonight.

You get to RSD by holding down the volume UP button while rebooting until it days RSD Protocol at the top of the screen.

Your advice is sound. Many such bootloops can also be eliminated with a "fastboot -w"

Not really sure what specific changes in /data (some .db setting somewhere prolly) can cause it to barf on boot but it happens a lot, especially when switching builds (froyo->GB, etc)
