Hello,

I rooted the phone using SuperOneClick, this worked fine.

Attempted to install clockworkMod (http://modmymobile.c...ew-version.html)

Attempted to reboot into recovery (via app) and now im stuck in a boot loop, is there any way of getting out of this?

Thanks,
Daniel.

boot in to recovery mode and by power and volume down. then either press volume up and down at the same time or tap bottom right of screen it depends on version.

then wipe all data.

yeah this isnt clockwork it's stock recovery.

from this can you press volume up and down at the same time and that should do it.

it not i think you have an older version so tap bottam left or right of screen.

is not their is another way but this should be the easyest

you need to entre bootloader mode now then. press vol up with power for 5 secs and flash a rom from that list with rsd lite.

you could flash 2.5.1 bk or upgrade to a froyo rom

do you know how rds works?

Download rds lite here and install moto drivers on pc

then download the rom you want

put phone int bootloader and wait for rds to find it

when it does click on it in the table below

then find the .sfb file you just downloaded

then flash it and all done!


its a real good tool pretty much makes the defy unbrickable but it is soooo frustrating when ur stuck in a boot loop :D B)

!!!!!!!!! Flash only if you come from a 2.21 or 2.34 rom "That is because it has version 2 for CG31 and CG39, if you are on stock 2.51 those versions are 3 and if you flashed leaked froyo those are 4 and you cannot flash any firmware with lower versions. if you are on 2.21 or 2.34 you can flash this, otherwise you will brick your phone. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- That put me off, im sure i was on 2.51. :S

yeh if your on 2.51 dont flash a lower rom, usually you end up with a black screen

have you read addthebadds other thread in this section on flashing froyo. If you have 2.51 try looking at the links I posted. Those work on my phone
