I have a Motorola Droid X that will not boot past the red Motorola logo. I've tried almost every possible combination of buttons to get into recovery mode, all to no avail. Aside from the combo to get into bootloader mode, the phone will do nothing but power on and display the logo. Phone will not power back off without pulling the battery (unless in bootloader mode).

Indicator strips show water damage. Knowing the owner, this could not have happened within the last 6 months or so. It may be relevant, but I want to completely rule out software problems first.

The only thing I have successfully managed to do is boot into bootloader mode and flash a stock SBF, which changed nothing. Phone was completely stock, and this problem seems to have come out of nowhere (no recent falls, spills, etc.).

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
