I am looking at a phone for a friend of mine. It's a original Droid. It will not boot to the OS, it just sits at the M logo for hours and hours. I have got it into recovery mode by powering on and holding up on the D pad. I then used RSD Lite to reflash VZW_A855_FRG01B_QSC6085BP_C_01.43.01P_SW_UPDATE_01 to it. It says it finished and passed, but still sits at the M logo. Any ideas?

So i hope someone responds to this.
My og Droid is stuck at the M logo. i can get into bootloader and Clockworkmod revoery mode, but i cant actually boot into the OS.
So when i first got it a few days ago, i did a factory reset. I then rooted it, which worked, and then installed rom manager. i made a back up twice to be sure, then tried to flash to Kfazz's Jellybean ROM. It said success, but after that i was in a boot loop. I read on how to fix this, but adb wont find the device until it is in the OS, so i popped out the battery and restored from my backup, but now it just stays at the M logo. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

The M logo is the bootloader's logo. Since the droid has unlocked bootloader it is possible that something messed it up.

Can you restore the stock bootloader?

Go into recovery and wipe data, cache, and dalvik cache. Then try and boot it up. If that fails download a new rom wipe everything above again, then flash the new rom, the m logo is not the bootloader nothin u did had anything with the bootloader. I have this problem once in a when flashin a kernel or new rom

if you made it to the boot animation then you should be good, just let me know

I actuLly used CM9, but i cant get the touch screen or touch buttons to work. I may just have to use a different build, or roll back to an ealier cm build.
