Default How to Flash 5.9.905 GB, 6.7.246 ICS or 98.72.22 JB with Rsdlite

MAKE SURE YOUR BATTERY IS AT LEAST 50% BEFORE TRYING THIS.



This will wipe everything but your external sd-card.

If you are on GB or a ICS leak 6.7.232 or less you can flash any file in this thread. If you are on ICS 6.7.246 or any leak from 6.7.235 to 6.7.247 you can only flash 6.7.246, the modified 6.7.246, 98.72.22, or the modified 98.72.22. If you are on JB 98.72.22 you can only flash 98.72.22 or the modified 98.72.22 files

Downloads

Moto Helper device manager

Motorola USB drivers v5.7.0- 32bit

Motorola USB drivers v5.7.0- 64bit

RSDLite v5.7

5.9.905 GB (Full Version) (md5 sum 860ddf17ac34d0103a99ff42eed2c050)

Modified 5.9.905 GB (md5 sum f7c66ab368f1be30a1b77ba157b96347) This will remove root but you will have to uninstall Super user app before flashing. This will keep your data

6.7.246 FXZ ICS (Full Version)(md5 sum A72C1C1AB6D5717611FE12D63723E9C4)

Modified 6.7.246 FXZ ICS(md5 sum 02CAC34F9FE419E4D5ED0C018A1B4741)This will remove root but you will have to uninstall Super user app before flashing. This will keep your data

98.72.22 FXZ JB (Full Version)(md5 sum 1481AC6035682B732F76A621A36A9153)

Modified 98.72.22 FXZ JB(md5 sum 4723af4ba2e5d0710f091f2279b62927) This will remove root but you will have to uninstall Super user app before flashing. This will keep your data.

If you tried the 98.72.22 fxz and received a OEM_fb_mode error use this file here it is the full 98.72.22 with the 2 fb_mode lines removed.

Thank you Timmy10Shoes for the modified xml.

Free md5 sum checker

Use the back USB ports on a desktop. On a laptop it does not matter. Use usb 2.0 ports as there are issues with usb 3.0 and rsdlite.


Everything you download will be to your computer desktop.
1. Download one of the FXZ files. Use the md5 sum checker to make sure the sums match and the file is not corrupt.
2. Download Motorola drivers to your desktop or use Moto helper device manager.
3. When it is done downloading click on it and install
4. download RSDLite 5.7 to your desktop.
5. When it is done downloading click on it and install
6. start RSDLite 5.7 picture
7. turn phone off
8. press and hold the volume down and power button at the same time on the phone. The fastboot menu will appear.
9. plug your bionic into your computer with the cable that came with the phone.
10. Click on RSDLite, you should see your phone listed. picture
11. click on your phone to highlight.
12. click on "..." symbol. picture
13. navigate to the 5.9.905 or 6.7.246 file location and select that file. picture
14. on the next pop up select uncompress and start flashing. picture
15. let the program run until your phone reboots. rsdlite screen will say 22/22 complete.
16. when the green android is up you are done.
17. click on the green man and log in with your google account.

Some time RSDLite does not say complete but the android will show up on your phone. It is complete don't worry about the warnings.

Good Luck

Make sure your laptop battery is charged or you have a backup power supply for your desktop. Just to be safe.


If RSDLite is giving you issues there is a manual way to flash the files using fastboot.

The links for the pictures are not showing up? They do for me. I will fix this when I get to my laptop.

Add all links for downloads.

Yes. It wipes everything but your external sd card. if you backup with TIBU or something similar you can be back up in running fairly quick.

when your are done you can root using tehsusenoh modified releashed and forever root file here. R3l3AS3DRoot_Windows_V2.1 - modded zergRush - Minus.com Option 2, root and forever root.
This works with 5.5.893

Until the RSD lite link becomes live, you can get it from here.

I'll add it in.

The reasons the link is down is because the hosting was being paid for in full by johnlgalt.

So far, from all of the files he's hosted, he's accumulated 700GB of download in total. That's how much his links have been downloaded not only here, but everywhere else too. Pretty much every other guide out there is pulled from the links him and I used in the original guides.

followed the instructions, when it rebooted to go to the green droid setup, it went back into the flash recovery boot. I rebooted it and chose normal boot. It came back up with the Eclipse boot logo thing (the whole reason I tried this was to remove the ROM), and got stuck in a boot loop. Rebooted and did the recovery boot, formatted data/cache, formatted cache, rebooted and now i'm on the fastboot screen again.


figured it out, have to extract the files with RSD Lite then click the start button to run the flash, i'm a RSD Lite noob

These have not worked for me. I'm on 5.9.901. Phone bricked. RSD lite with the edit for 901 has not worked. I think I have to bite the bullet and get another bionic. I wonder what the selling price is on ebay for a bricked phone.....

Can you tell yesterday was a long day :-)?

Thanks so much. As for me. Lesson learnt. I won't be bricking this baby again. I will root again. But no custom roms for me...There 's nothing wrong with roms, I just think I screwed up trying to go back to the stock motoblur from eclipse.

Laptop. But problem solved. I had received a cdt error and the phone was in fastboot after I took the 5.5.893 update. But i downloaded a cdt fix and extracted. I was then able to boot up without a problem. all my aps were there and the 893 update took.

For the time being I will do nothing to the phone. No root. nothing. Let the phone settle for a bit after all I put it (and myself) through. The only thing I wonder is, am I going to have this problem each time I update the phone?

No you're not.

Everyone has their head handed to them and they learn something very important from it. Assume it is going to screw up before you do it and have the recovery worked out. If it then does screw up you're ready.

Great going ... you made it back.

Thanks. I have had my head handed to me enough. That's a good tip: assume things will be screwed up and prepare for that.

I am having the same issue and I am stuck too. Anyone???

EDIT: I have safestrap installed and was able to get back into Eclipse 2.1RC1.

1. Could safestrap have anything to do with this issue?
2. I am getting my phone exchanged (phone speaker is broke), so I need to get back to stock quickly.
3. Should I just unroot and leave the .901 radio?

Worked like a charm. Why didn't the steps from the OP work???

dfib thanks for all your help. I'm having a problem after step 13, when I try to uncompress and flash, I get an RSD failure: Please check input file. Either XML format is wrong or image files associated with it are missing. It seems to get hung up on: C:\Users\derry\Desktop\Blur_Version.5.5.893.XT875. Verizon.en.US+(2)\webtop\etc\bonobo-activation\bonobo-activation-config.xml

I researched it in the forums a bit. Can't find anything. Maybe tomorrow I'll try another method unless anyone has input.

Since there have been some problems with this I am going to go to .901 tonight and then try to get back to 5.5.893. I will let you know what I find.

got rid of the 5.9.901 steps until I can figure what is wrong because it failed for me too.

I didn't see the guide before you removed it.

Were you doing it manually, or just with the Pathsaver? That's what got me to 901, but it also goes to 886 and 893.

I tried a modified method but it did not work. I wanted to flash rsdlite 5.5.893 and then flash the cdt.bin from .901 but it was not working right.

The link on the XDA is a rar file. What next? Im using 64bit windows 7

Actually I am downloading a trial version of winzip. BUT the firmware will not download saying that downloading is disabled:

All sharing functionality on FileSonic is now disabled. Our service can only be used to upload and retrieve files that you have uploaded personally.

If this file belongs to you, please login to download it directly from your file manager.

Downloading the file now. Again. The first one gave me an error about wrong size or something.

Also noticed: I downloaded the drivers (64bit) installed RSD lite, rebooted, set the phone to recovery, plugged the phone in and windows 7 pops up to tell me its installing drivers. (Not this again! Although first time plugging the phone into the laptop). I load up RSD lite, phone don't show but says somethings connected. Then I uncompress and install thats when I get the error.

EDIT: By recovery I mean, power + volume down

Time to just give up I guess. When the Bionic is connected and RSD it says connected, but when I click on that, the info window shows nothing. No ESN number, serial number nothing.

I really love windows 7. Install the moto drivers and windows installs its own. What a bunch of -

Yes it is. I could have swore i grabbed the 64bit drivers. Even ran RSD in admin mode. Is there a mac version of RSD?

have you tried running rsdlite with out admin. I usually don't run it as admin.

Also when you plug your phone in with it on run it through every usb mode and let the drivers install for each one. Then boot into fastboot and let those drivers install, then start rsdlite.

Finally got my PC up and running again. Had to update RSD lite and download the image, but looks like I got my sisters phone flashed. Not sure why her laptop did not like the file. Perhaps a botched download or something

How long is this process supposed to take? I have donet the steps and rslite is in progress but it is stuck on 1/22 for several minutes. I am not sure if this meter should progress, 2/22, 3/22 etc. or if it will just go until it is done. Also, if it just keeps going and going, I am curious when i should pull the plug, and the best method to do it.

One challenge I ran into was in my first attempt my firewall blocked the process and i restarted it, but not from the get go just from the uncompress and flash. my phone was already in fastboot and rs detected it. I hope this did not cause a challenge.

Anway, several minutes now and no change, other than the progress bar is moving back and forth

It all depends on your computer. The process can take time, but it is different for everybody.

Not sure what happened, but after hours my phone battery died and rsdlite gave a failure at 1/22. I am not sure which happed first since I left it flashing when i went to bed.

I just now plugged my phone into the wall outlet. The screen came back up in the fastboot screen. The only things I see different are that the first line says Rom flash failed, and the a few lines below it says ...Battery: low

I will let it charge and then see if i can reset the phone. Not sure what happened there, but I think maybe I have a bad or different data cable. You would think the phone would get a charge from the computer while flashing. Then again I had a full battery (extended life) and I would think the flashing would be done before that drained.

oh, should I leave the phone in fastboot like it is? Or, pull the battery and try to power it back up normally?

hmm. odd. so if i plug it into the wall I can get a screen that says

AP fastboot flash mode (s) (flash failure)
0a.61

Battery low
Cannot program
Connect Usb
Data Cable


Now, sometimes this screen goes away (when I toggle the power, or volume etc) I cannot get any other screen or any other boot. I plug it back into a wall outlet and the screen comes back. I charged it for 5 hours and it is still the same screen. I have played with a few cables, a desktop and a laptop, both with the drivers but I cannot get a computer to recognize it, or get the phone to do anything else. I did pull the battery and reinstalled it, but no change.

I think I will try another desktop. I took a quick look at the "how to unbrick thread" but that assumes you can get it back into fastboot
