here is what i did. i backed up everyting through recovery. i did the sbf, and this is when i started having problems. when i rebooted, i wasnt activated. i re-gingerbreaked and installed the recovery again. i did a factory reset, and when the setup began, the first page (activation) wasnt there. it went directly to g,ail accounts. what do i do from here, not haveing anything or ability to access recovery. i must not understand something correctly

When I did the SBF and then did a factory reset I still had to dial *228 and choose option 1 to activate my phone. I had the triangle until I did that step.

After you sbf, you should pull battery, put battery in, hold VOLUME ROCKER DOWN and power on. Once menu comes up, volume rocker down until you see Android Recovery. Hit Volume Rocker UP. You will see the Android and the Triangle. Push BOTH volume rockers in at the same time to access stock recovery. Use volume rocker down to highlight Reset Data/Factory Reset. Tap POWER BUTTON to select.

ill try it again. i did everything but BOTH volume rockers. thanks
Ah. Once you rocker down in Fastboot menu, it will say Android Recovery. Rocker UP on that, you will see it say Starting Android Recovery. Then you'll see the Android and Triangle. BOTH rockers in at the same time and BAM. Stock recovery. :) :) This is the same on the DX. If you need help, please let us know prior to taking it in or calling vzw. We will get you set up. :)
