Re: Dead Droid Guy

This is the Android Recovery Screen.  To get past the "Dead Android Guy":

From the Android system recovery screen (Dead Android Guy), press and hold the Volume down key, then press the Volume up key, then release Volume up followed by releasing Volume down.  (Read this carefully and do what it says.)

You will be presented with a menu where you can reboot, wipe cache, factory reset, etc.  Use the Volume Up/Down keys to navigate and the power button to select.
