Re: Bootloader usb ini

I had the same problem so I called Motorola Tech support. They told me the BOOTLOADER USB INI message meant that the software for the phone wasnt updated and in order to update it to the right software you'd have to send it in to them to fix it for free ONLY if its still under their 1 year warranty or else you'll have to buy a new phone. So next time you guys get a new phone make SURE you UPDATE YOUR SOFTWARE REGULARLY! I learned my lesson. I am so pissed.

P.S. Is there anyway of getting your contacts off through the comp even if your phone wont power on?

Bootloader usb init

hold the end key(power) and it should restart back to normal. If it goes back into bootloader then your phones software could be corrupt or could have a wrong value in somewhere. What provider is this?

Bootloader USB INI

It sounds like to tried to hack the phone,,never heard of bootloader
showing up unless you tried to load it, you probably can't fix this unless you know how to look at the firmware that runs your phone.
Best thing is too take it too your carrier store that has a repair
on hand or sent it to moto, if you tried to hack they will charge you
for messing with it, if you did not then it should be free,,should be,,

Also wait and see if you get a better answer,,,I have only hacked
all razors Iphone, lg vu, never touched the phone you have.

Get this Phone reflashed. Of course if you Dropped the Phone or if it went into water then Forget it about spending 35-50 Bucks on reflasing this phone. because it will go back to Boot Mode.

Bootloader USB INIT


Reflashing the phone requires that you have acces to some service software programs (PST for example) and a correct, unlocked, stock flash+flex pack, also compatible with your bootloader version. As a general rule of thumb, if you don't know what this terms mean i recomand you try to avoid the process. Some people ended up with bricked (dead) phones because they simply didn't had some field experience with flashing phones or service and bootloader commands. My advice would be to play it safe and try to get help from a service center.

Goto google and look up Bootloader USB ini you will get results from Howards Forum telling you on how to reflash your phone follow the instructions.. Ignore the post about "V3M bricked but not hopeless" thats mine and its a different situation from yours. Good luck!
