Tutorials

How to root your Defy

See:

How to enter bootloader menu

Switch phone off, press and hold volume-up button then switch phone on, If nothing works you might have to install bootloader, see this

How to start the 2ndinitdefy bootloader/recovery menu

Download the 2ndinitdefy apk (v1.3 here, v1.8 in market) and install, reboot and when the blue led lights hold volume-down (usb debugging has to be off).

How to enter recovery mode

Switch phone off, press and hold volume-down button then switch phone on, If nothing works you might have to install a recovery tool e.g. ClockworkMod_Recovery. The point is to be able to use the recovery option when a flash has gone wrong so it's worth getting this right. See:

If the recovery gets stuck with the android man and an exclamation mark, allegedly you can hold volume-down and hit the power to turn the phone off, else you've got to pull the battery.

How to backup your current ROM

Enter recovery mode (either via booting with volume-down button pressed or via running app) and then use the (Nandroid) backup ROM option. I'm navigating with up/down volume buttons and using power button to select. See:

How to get rsdlite to recognise a phone that won't boot

You flashed, something happened, now screen is black, phone doesn't react, u are in a boot loop, rsdlite cant recognize the phone. you're right here.

To get RSDLIte to recognize your phone you have to enter boot loader mode. this means press VOL-UP + POWER If nothing helps, try pushing VOL UP before!' you put the battery in (RSDLIte should be running and awaiting a new connection at that time) If you are using Windows 7, try seting RSDLite to "compatibility mode: Windows XP SP3".

Fixing "Battery Low - Cannot program" on bootloader aka McGyver Hack

U ran out of battery during flashing or similar. In flash progress (boot loader mode) the phone isnt able to load the battery, u got stucked because u ran out of it. Indicators:

 - just see white led, 
 - screen black, 
 - phone doesnt boot?
 - never ever see a motorola logo

may try this:[1] some pics how this should look like: [2]
