I just tried to do a hard reset (by going through the privacy menu) in order to try fix some of the stuttering issues. Now it is stuck in an infinite loop of having the green android robot with the spinny blue thing, then a black screen, then the motorola logo, it has been doing this for about 20 minutes now.

Same issue. Took me a while to figure it out through an amalgamation of various online helps. I repeated it several times to make sure it worked before I posted.
I was experiencing android logo with blue loading bar... after a few seconds it would stop and then quickly show the android symbol on its back with a red exclamation point logo. Then it would shut off.
- To restart, press and hold both power and volume down for approximately 10 seconds, then let go of the power.
(Should show Motorola logo, then go to green Android logo again)
- At Android Logo, immediately press the middle of the volume up/down rocker.... this should engage both buttons at once.
(I was able to initiate this with one press in the middle of the volume rocker... other times it took me a few quick presses)
(If done properly, the screen should stop and some yellow text will appear on the left side of the android logo.. let it continue, it may fail)
It should say:
Data wipe failied.
Performing BP Masterclear...
This will bring up a blue text menu at the top. Use volume up/down to navigate. Power to select.
Go down to "wipe data/factory reset" and select by hitting power. Go down to "yes" and select by hitting power.
It should properly format the /data and /cache after about a minute. Once it completes it will bring the blue text menu back up. Select "reboot system now" by hitting the power button.

I had the same problem last week and used the same method.
A little tip though, don't try to push both volume up and down at once. Start by holding the volume down button, then while you hold it down push the volume up button. This works everytime.

Wow, great post... I thought I had lost My Razr HD....
Nobody in Fido, Motorola or even at "Techknow space" were able to come up with a solution.

Hi, I followed all the steps up to and including the Normal boot.
Once completed I push the power button and then after a few seconds, the green Droid comes back with the rotaing blue thing, it starts to slow down and goes again, slows down again, then I see the same green Droid with the red exclamation mark, then the phone shuts off!
BTW, the phone prior to being reset, lagged big time, plus the battery used to get hot etc.
