Root Droid 3 Won't Flash/Reset/Anything


Aug 21, 2012
I've tried many different things in alot of the threads I've read on this forum and nothing is working. I tried using the One-Click root on my Droid and it didn't work, come to find out, it was an outdated method for the Droid 3. It messed up my phone. My apps constantly crash. My texts disappear, then sometimes reappear switching the place of the texts randomly. When I reset from settings, it restarts phone, but nothing is reset. It won't let me check my e-mails(G-mail). I can hardly do anything. I've tried flashing back using the AP Fastboot method from psouza(spelling?). On my phone it says Battery OK/Program OK/USB Connected. So I run the "CLICK HERE - Flash Verizon DROID 3 OTA 5.6.890 to phone.bat" And it says this: >Link to printscreen image.

It then proceeds to to reboot, but nothing changes. Ever. And I've tried the Hard reset method. Nothing is working. Please help. I tried being as descriptive as possible so that it answers most potential questions.
Phone specs: Version: 5.7.906.XT862.Verizon.en.US
Android 2.3.4
