I was adjusting my husing and turned the phone on and I got the screen wit the "M" wallpaper and Bootloader USB Init.
Can't get it to boot!

"housing" - rough crowd!
Hopefully you can get this replaced under warranty. Is it water damaged? If not, then it would be a software malfunction. UGGH! Good luck! Every phone that I have seen with the Bootloader USB blue screen of death is totally hosed.Originally Posted by caifan805
oh sorry, i just didnt know what you meant. umm...try flashing itOriginally Posted by caifan805
Yeah, seeing if it'll flash sounds like a good idea. Just know that your flashing options aren't exactly perfect: the leaked V3m firmware has some bugs involving the outer display, and the Alltel V3c firmware disables your Transflash slot.

i'll give it a try. thanks!
If you decide to use the Alltel flash, you're going to have to apply some fixes toward getting data services to work again. You also lose your Transflash slot, as I said before, but you gain the Motorola UI and Bluetooth OBEX. If you flash to the leaked V3m firmware, your phone will work pretty much like it did before, except there will sometimes be some display bugs on the outer screen when you try to change ring styles.
Just so you're informed about your options.
Why is flashing always the first suggestion, especially when there is no bug-free or proper firmware for the V3m? Plug your phone in, run Ramldr, wait until it connects then hit restart. See what happens from there.
I had the same thign happen to one of my old V3c's before they replaced it with a V3m. It was replaced under warranty, but unfortunately my numbers were gone and I had to go to an older back up. Good Luck
Ramldr trick did not work - boots back into the Bootloader USB Init screen
my e815 had the same problem. i use it as a paperweight now... tried reflashing several times, could not get it back and phone was out of warranty.
What me worry?
Your best shot is a warranty replacement since I don't think you'll resurrect it on your own.
