well, that was scary. I used adb reboot recovery to get into recovery mode, then not finding anything useful (like a shell prompt), selected bootloader mode. that immediately dropped me into a black screen with "FASTBOOT mode" in very tiny letters at the bottom. both keys stopped working, and I couldn't connect with either adb or fastboot. so I opened it up and yanked the battery. rebooted, and it was back to normal. whew.

oh, and in recovery mode the keys don't work as expected. instead of navigating with volume up and down, and selecting with the power key, volume down navigates and volume up selects. pressing the power key only gives you the little droid lying on his side and the message "No command".

I think it's about time for bed.
