Wow didn't even notice that. Thanks
I've down something wrong! Was on 200 with no issues and in performing this method I must have made a mistake. I now just boot into a black screen. Can OP or someone else simplify and/or explain the steps.
While waiting for ICS 208 to be linked, I have been reviewing this thread and the original Razr thread, and of course I downloaded the files. To clarify the instructions for people like me (from post 144 of the Razr thread, I modified it a bit for our needs):
- Download the latest ICS leak and place it in your external SD card.
- Open the Droid Razr (D4)Utility
- Turn your phone off, & then turn it back on holding VOL DWN and PWR to boot into AP Fastboot
- Select Fastboot to .181 (.219) in the Utility & follow the onscreen directions
- Let it complete. There will be quite a few errors, don't panic - this is normal.
You are now on what we coined "Psuedo-.181" - some weird hybrid of GB and ICS files. Your phone will not boot at this point.
- Open the unstick ICS tool
- Choose the .206 kernel Since we're going to 208, will this 206 kernel work or would someone have to extract 208 and put it into the Unstick tool?
- Let it install, and reboot.
Because of this kernel upgrade, you are now able to flash ICS again... even a later version.
- Turn your phone off
- Hold VOL DOWN + VOL UP + PWR, then use VOL DWN to go to "Recovery" and VOL UP to select it
- Press VOL DWN + VOL UP to bring up the menu
- Navigate to "Apply update from external SD"
- Select the .208 zip file you downloaded.
- *IF IT FAILS THE FIRST TIME, TRY THIS PARAGRAPH AGAIN*
And now you're on .208!
THE NEXT PART DOES NOT WORK PER THE OP.
If you want root afterwards:
- Turn on your phone and let it boot normally
- Set everything up, and then turn on USB debugging
- Turn off your phone
- Hold VOL DWN + PWR to boot into AP Fastboot mode again
- Open the UnstickICS tool on your computer again
- Install the .85 kernel
- Turn your phone off
- Hold VOL DWN + VOL UP + PWR, then use VOL DWN to navigate to BP Tools, and VOL UP to select it
- Your phone should boot normally.
- Open the Droid Razr Utility 1.6 and select Root ICS.
- Follow the onscreen directions, pressing a button when it finishes rebooting, 3x.
- Turn your phone off again.
- Hold VOL DWN + PWR to boot into AP Fastboot again
- Use UnstickICS to flash the .208 kernel again

According to the OP, when we flash 219 using the Razr D4 utility it will skip flashing the kernel because it's prevented from downgrading kernels. At this point you have a mixed 219 and ICS system and obviously you can't run it.
If you try to flash the latest ICS leak it will see the kernel of the older ICS so therefore it won't install because it's looking for the 219 kernel or the kernel for the latest ICS leak.
Now you have to flash the latest ICS kernel. After that you can flash the latest ICS completely because it now sees the latest ICS kernel.
Based on my interpretation, someone has to get the 208 kernel and include it in the Unstick tool. However the post I quoted says:
"Because of this kernel upgrade, you are now able to flash ICS again... even a later version."
And of course there's the problem of retaining root which will prevent me from trying 208.
Im beginning to doubt there even is a 6.16.208 leak. 208 is a leak for the DROID Razr not the DROID 4 as far as we know.
The Razr also has a 6.16.209 leak too so I still say our .206 is the latest leak.
