Helps! No market access. No Clockwork. No Superuser. (Atrix -rooted, unlocked bootloader)
I am at a loss here. Rooted no problem. Few hiccups with oem bootloader unlocking, but was successful. In the process of putting CM9 and Google Apps on my Atrix, things went awry.
I was prepping my phone for the install via Clockwork Recovery. Backed up my current ROM, wiped all the caches, etc.. Went to install CM9 from SD, zipped through(I'll revisit this part, ugh). Installed Google Apps from SD, this took longer and was visually different from CM9. Derp! CM9 didn't install. I went back, tried again, no luck. Then I had the bright idea to download two other releases of CM9 (19 and 8? Irrelevant at the moment). They finished rather quickly. Now, another bright idea, take out microSD and put the new .zips on it. Boom, done. I'm so smart. Pop the card back in, give it some time to prep. Oh, it won't prep, you say? Oh, it can't find any data anymore? Oh well, nothing a reset won't fix... This is where it spiralled even further into hell. Rebooted fine, filled out my Motoblur crap as I had done many times before during root and unlock. I go into the Market to get app restore and get back ROM Manager and superuser, nothing. No connection, retry. Server error. Over and over again. FFFFFUUUUUU-! Did some factory resets, tried all possible 'market fix tricks'. Nothing. Entered recovery, /!\ and nothing else.
I've searched everywhere for market fixes, nothing comes up.
I'm on Bell, so I've been heeding all the DO NOT FLASH STOCK ROMS!!!! warnings.
I have .apks for both ROM Manager and Superuser. But I have no clue how to sideload. All the results I can find for 'sideloading on an Atrix' are related to unrooted phones that require an app, an app downloaded from the Market.
tl;dr version of issues/questions:
No Market access ('Server error; Retry)
Easy way to sideload .apk files w/o needing to download anything on the Atrix-end?
Is there an SBF that will help? And can it be used with Bell?
Additional info: fairly certain I have backups on the SD, I just don't think I have any way to use them. Phone is still entirely usable, which is better than a brick, but w/o apps, Q n Q
Thanks in advance.
