Okay, I got another battery and now the main screen says battery good.

It also registers with my desktop. I will need to dig up an original cable to make sure everything is on board. Then i will use a new desktop, back usb, stock cable, and a fresh battery. Hopefully this will work

It won't charge in fastboot. Send me a pm if you need help. If you are using a desktop use the the USB ports in the back.

I have plenty of cheap, ebay purchased cables tucked away around the house, in the car and at work that I use to charge. But I would NEVER trust them for use when flashing the phone. Unless you are absolutely stuck and have no other option it's just not worth the risk.

Awesome. Was previously frustrated with the contacts FC issues associated with deleting yahoo authenticator files. After multiple failed attempts of almost every method for remedy, the system had become very unstable. This worked beautifully without a hitch. Major thanks.

I'm a lil confused. I downloaded the Motorola driver 64 bit, rsdlite and the 5.5.893. I think the file for 5.5.893 is the one giving me the problem. It doesn't show the file I guess I need so I can do the unroot. This first droid and the first one I decide to root now I'm kinda regretting my decision.

The 5.5893? Here is the thing I rooted my phone and now I need all that bloatware back so I can update to .902. So I follow all the steps all the way till step 11. On step 12 where is says "12. navigate to the 5.5.893 file location and select that file." it doesn't give me the option to select that file. When I click on the "..." it shows me VRZ_XT8...." file. What am I doing wrong?

Can't find a way to load it. But yes it does say "VRZ_XT875_5.5.893.XT875.Verizon.en.US_CFC_01.xml" . Do I click start and follow the rest of the steps?

Default links down

Both FXZ links are down for 24hrs. Apparently Sugarsync does not like it when a 250gb is download in one day, from one file, from my account. The 5.9.902 might be down longer until I can upload it again.

Default can't update from 5.5.886.XT875

Would the steps described in the first post of this thread work to help me update from 5.5.886? If not does anybody have any suggestions or advice?

I bought my Bionic from a 3rd party and have been unable to install the 5.5.893 update. I am assuming the person I bought it from removed some bloatware files and when it looks for those files, the update installation stops, the phone reboots and I get a message that the update fails. I have tried doing a factory reset, but that did not help. I have read that does re-install the missing files. I have enough knowledge to be dangerous with this, so I would welcome any and all step by step directions to help get this phone updated. It works fine, I would just like to be able to update it and make it work even better.
Thanks in advance.

Yes this will work for you. You can flash the 5.9.902 right over 5.5.886

Worked like a charm for me to go from 5.7.893 to 5.9.902. Much appreciated.

Any of the Mods or guides want to sticky this so users have this at the top and don't create extra threads about looking for files or how to use rsdlite.

Anyone got a mirror link for 5.9.902? My headphone jack just broke and I was going to Verizon later today anyway.

EDIT:

Also, I am on a 5.7.894 based ROM. Can I just flash the 5.9.902 FXZ or am I gonna have to do something else first? I've looked around (xda, rootzwiki) and there's no clear information on where to go from 5.7.894. I have MotoRooter but I don't want to try any of those options right now without knowing if my phone will still be functional after.

Does anyone have the following error? "Please check input file. Either ml format is wrong or image files associated with it are missing". I get with every package that I try to unzip in RSD Lite.

Anyone?

What file are you downloading and from where? Are you using rsdlite to unzip it?

I've tried 4 different versions of the full .902 FXZ file. Each one verified with the MD5.

I'm using RSD Lite 5.7 on Windows 7 x64 with the latest Moto 64-bit drivers installed.

That error pops up every time RSD tries to start the flash. For kicks, I tried an .893 FXZ and it failed with the exact same error.

I did a power button + volume up/down factory restore and tried again, same error. I also tried in APRestore mode.

I don't think you have the 902 fxz unzipped. Also, all 18 files need to be in 1 folder on your desktop.
In addition, use the back USB ports on your pc.

If you continue to have issues, PM me. I can help you further if needed.

RSD Lite unzips it for you, however, I did unzip it and manually choose the .xml file. Same error. It fails right after "verifying" system.img and trying to start the flash.

It was in the back USB ports, using the Motorola official cable, etc.

I think it has something to do with the fact I used Bionic Recovery Bootstrap at one point in the past to flash an ICS ROM. I've restored this same Bionic with an FXZ file before and that is the only major thing I can think of that I've done since that might cause this error.

I have a Macbook I can try it on, but my primary goal was just to do a factory restore (the phone hangs at "Unmounting internal storage" when trying to do it from within the OS) which I was able to do by using the Power + Volume Up/Down method.

I do appreciate your willingness to help however!

Using bootstrap or safestrap does not matter when it comes to flashing with rsdlite it just looks at the kernel and radio and makes sure that you are not downgrading. I would remove your current RSDLite and download the newest version which is 5.7 and try it again.

Rsdlite does not unzip the fxz. Use this method to unzip: Microsoft Corporation
Rsdlite will only work on a mac if you are using windows.
Having use bootstrap or safestrap does not matter.
Put the unzipped 902 fxz on desktop in 1 folder. The 1 folder should have 18 unzipped files.

Rsdlite will only work on a mac if you are using windows.

I am not trying to be rude but is this not RSDLite unzipping (uncompressing) the file?

I was about to give up....but read this whole thread and very impressed with dfib and Thom something....makes me dare to ask.

I rooted my Droid Bionic using this Method I left stock Rom-only wanted to use hot spot. It was first time ever rooting a phone and its worked fine. I didn't know to do a back-up that I read about here.

Now I want to un-root to sell it. I tried using this Method Which was to down load RSDlite but I immediately got stuck because I couldn't get the drivers to show up in device manager. I think its because I downloaded the wrong drivers. My bionic system version is 5.5.893 and I can't find those drivers. I thought I was onto something in the beginning of this thread because it said drivers for 5.5.893 but the link didn't work.

I am using a laptop running windows 7, 64 bit.

I am a complete noob on this but want to learn.

Thanks so much!

The easiest way to put your phone back to stock is to flash the 5.9.902 fxz file with rsdlite. the drivers are from moto's website and should work. the fxz file links are down because sugar sync disabled my account from over use. I will find a working link for you.

This is going to show you what a noob I am ..... what does it mean to flash it? Is there a thread you can reference with complete noob instructions.

Thank you, thank you!!!!!

dfib thank you for the post with instructions and links. Timmy10Shoes, I bow down to your genius! I had turned my droid into a skipping stone until I found your post. Was getting ready to let her fly and buy a new one.
