SOURCE: Motorola Flash Mode - bootloader

Hmm - that kind of message is most likely the basic boot loader in the unit getting activated, this would normally be used in manufacturing to get the 'product firmware' (the programme that makes the product do what it does) into the unit on the production line.

For this to be appearing in customer hands I'd suggest that the product firmware has gotten corrupted. Being unable to run the product firmware the unit is entering it's bootloader and expecting new firmware to be put into it.

Unless your product manufacturer's support webpages have firmware downloadable for the product, along with details of how to do it, then i'd suggest that your unit probably needs the attention of an approved service centre or manufacturer service department.

If the product is still under warranty then the warranty may cover fixing this fault - check terms and conditions and/or contact the manufacturer or the store you bought it from - you may get it fixed free or replaced under warranty by the manufacturer or the retailer.
If it is out of warranty then it may likely cost something to get your product repaired, but it's probably worth making enquiries - a repair may be worthwhile but you'd need to find out cost. It may be worth contacting the manufacturer and asking if this is a known common issue with this product - if it is then they may have put a mitigation plan in place to support users that experience it and if so this may be available even if the unit is out of warranty.

Hope this helps y'all to understand the message you're seeing on the display. Would be interested to hear if you get it sorted.

How to fix Motorola Flash Mode Of Death To do this you must have a fully charged batery, i know when your phone is stuck in flash mode you cant charge your battery so your gonna have to buy a new one or try to charge the battery i another phone.

Help ME!!! V3i dead Now!!!!

Once you flash the v3i to R441D you cannot go back to R397 but if you power on phone while holding down # and * you can go into bootloader mode and then use FlashBackup to re-flash phone with R4441D firmware. I have had this issue a few times and always been able to recover it. If this doesn't work locate someone in your area via google or craigslist that offers Smart-Clip service and they can fix it for you.

Motorola Q

Have you tried removing the battery? That is usually the first step on this type of problem. Has the phone been damaged in any way? Liquid dropped etc? Any of those may also play a part. If the phone is still covered by warranty the best bet may be to take it to your local service center if taking the battery out does not fix it!
If you have any trouble feel free to contact me ill be glad to help!

Motorola flash mode

Have you tried a Master Re-set when the phone is off? Hold the center key and the power button for at least a FULL minute to a minute and a half. You will see the provider's splash screen, but hang tough.

This works best with the device on a flat surface rather than holding it.

Doesn't turn on!!

you need to try and get into the boot loader to see if you can flex/flash it from there. a new flex should solve the problem, unless there is physical or water damage to it. It could also be a defective battery. Are you positive the battery works? Did you do any kind of upgrade on the phone? played with it's firmware? On flashing - Flexing is done the same way Good luck
