Phone only on bootloader

When I turn on the razor, it only comes on in the bootloader mode, thats it! Is there anything at home that I can do to make the phone operate normally and get it out of bootloader mode?

Re: phone only on bootloader

Bootloader is the programing mode for when motorola loads the operating system. Typically this will happen when a bad flash code is used. You can try and remove the battery while the phone is turned on and hope it reloads the OS. Otherwise talk to your carrier about warranty stuff.

Bootloader usb init

This means that the phone firmware is corrupt - you can try to reflash it using Motorola software update, but it might not work for a phone stuck in bootloader mode:

My razor v3 is stuck on the hello screen and do not turn off by pushing the power off button.

Sounds like the firmware has gotten stuck it was a common bug in some of the v3 firmware versions. Pull the battery, replace it and then power on while holding down the # and * keys it will go into bootloader mode. Once on the text bootloader screen you can use flashback (google for it) and flash a more current firmware which will fix the phone.

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.
