Hello, I am new to the Droid 3 and the Droid Forums. I recently upgraded to a droid 3 within the past month. I started to have force closes with the Home Screen and pretty much everything else from the Stock ROM. so, I thought I would try another ROM. I installed Dark Droid successfully and for about 2 days I noticed the battery was going down a lot quicker than usual. Now here is where I had the problem:
1) I tried to SBF my phone back to stock using "Droid 3 SBF 5.6.890" but it kept failing step 6/15 or 18 or however many steps there where.
2) At this point I was a little worried, and did some searching for another solution, I did find one. I had to use "Droid 3 OTA 5.6.890 One Click" and extract the "Droid 3 SBF 5.6.890.zip" into the "files" folder inside the One click setup.
3) All was successful after it pretty much factory reset my phone and I also had to reprogram it by calling the verizon program number. #288 or something don't quote me on that.
After all that I figured out I was not using the stock USB cable my Droid 3 came with. I was using my girlfriend's HTC Ryme USB Cable. Could that have caused the SBF to fail at step 6? If not. what other information do you need for me to give so that I can figure this out.
No need to rush for an answer because my phone is fixed.
