    So, I have done this before, and was able to fix it using RSD Lite. However, I currently don't have Windows. I have tried 4 different methods in Linux, using the good USB port on my laptop, an OEM USB cable, and keep getting "Flash Failure" in fastboot mode. The battery is fully charged, I used an external charger to fully charge it. I downloaded the .902 file, used motorooter-1.1, the 902 Bionic Pathsaver, And have also tried to use the basic fastboot file, still to no avail.

    I know I can fix this so easily via RSD Lite in Windows. I've done it twice. However, my Windows file system is corrupted, and I can't find my Ultimate Boot Disc at the moment to fix it, so I'm stuck with Windows 8 or Ubuntu 10.10.

    Any advice on how to get this working? Windows 8 does not work for RSD Lite.

    This is the failure message I get:

    Flashing system.img
    sending 'system' (491264 KB)... OKAY
    writing 'system'... INFOPreflash validation failure
    FAILED (remote: )

    Wiping data
    erasing 'userdata'... OKAY
    erasing 'cache'... OKAY

    I got it working, thanks anyway!

    To anyone reading this in the future: Used 1-click Bionic Pathsaver for Linux, VRZ_XT875_5.9.902.XT875.Verizon.en.US_CFC_01.xml file, and was able to copy the files.
