    for the record

    I have heard multiple times that flashing a 2.1 updated phone using the 1.5 firmware will brick the phone. I can say first hand that this is not the case. While it does render the handset useless, it is far from a paperweight. If in flashing the phone you end up with a black boot loader screen with a blue line containing the normal white text, check the version of your ROM and aim for something newer. That being said, if you have done something else to your rom, you may actually become a paperweight. Don't give up, my phone was out for 10 hours before I figured out the problem and the solution. This community is amazing in their response time and all are here to help.

    Yea, it's not so much bricked, as it's just put in a boot loop. Android won't boot, but it's perfectly recoverable... and it's really simple to do.

    Well, temporarily bricked then. Regardless, trying to flash back to 1.5 after having installed the official Motorola 2.1 will render your phone useless until you reflash it to correct the issue.

    I need help, after I plugged my Backflip in there is no driver installation. Did I install the wrong USB drivers?

    EDIT: I switched the USB cables and it connected.

    Though it's against my better judgement since you've damaged your phone and now want to return it to stock just to trade it in.... which version of Windows are you using? Also which version of RSDlite do you have?
