    I'm glad the reset fixed it so that you didn't have to start the whole process over.

    Thank you for the help, I have another question now... :-)

    My SD card won't mount, so I cannot install Amazon apps...

    Not finding anything exceptionally useful googling... I went to system settings --> storage and all the options there related to add cards are grayed out. I know it works, because I just flashed from it! I tried a reboot. I will try reseating it in a minute.

    Your phone isn't still connected to the computer, is it? LOL If it is then it won't mount until you disconnect it.

    Interesting...
    I just installed titanium backup to see if it would be able to freeze any apps and got this message...



    Followed by this one...



    So I went to busy box and ran the permissions fix script, then rebooted.

    I can now freeze apps in Rom toolbox... :-)

    TB gave me that same message, I just clicked "yes" and rebooted. Not really a problem. So what was wrong with your sd card mounting?

    Here's an even more simplified guide:

    Download this script: http://droid.trbailey.net/dropbox/UPDATELEAK.zip

    Download the boot.img for the version you want to install, try here or search Droid 4 ROMS (??)
    [ICS Leak/Kernel/CRC] Droid 4 Build 6.16.213
    The 213 kernel (boot213.img) is HERE

    THIS SCRIPT DOES NOT CLEAR USER DATA SO YOUR APP DATA WILL STAY INTACT.

    Copy the following files from the GB 219 update to the UPDATELEAK directory where you unpacked the script.

    Code:
    device-tree.bin
    ebr
    grfs.img
    logo.bin
    mbr
    preinstall.img
    radio.img
    system.img
    Double click menu.bat
    Select 1
    Read, say Y and let it fastboot for you.
    READ the last page and enter the command
    Reboot phone
    Reboot again and update from sdcard.

    Option 2 does nothing.

    This is a slightly less confusing way to update to the latest leak. If you're having trouble understanding what to do or how to get the update to work, try this method. It might work for you.

    I had the same issue with rom toolbox. Busybox version 1.18.4 is what fixed it for me.

    It's not the version of busybox that causes that issue. It's asking you if you want to correct permissions and move the su and busybox binaries to /system/bin because it found them in /system/xbin. The root tools puts them in xbin and marks them owned by user 0.0 which is supposed to be root.

    Also the latest busybox for android version is 1.8.1 dated 11/14/2007. You might want to update. You can use this tool to do so:http://droid.trbailey.net/dropbox/d4icsroot.zip

    Unpack and run "menu.bat". There is an option to check su and busybox versions and upgrade busybox to latest if you want.

    FYI, The Busybox app in the market is NOT the latest version. The unofficial "official" busybox site is here: Busybox for android Since there are later versions (1.18.5 for ubuntu which is probably where your version came from) it would be easy enough to compile a newer version. The difference is that this one was compiled for and ON an android device so it will have all the correct path and library constants for android. The Ubuntu or Debian version will probably run but it might not be able to find all the tools since android and ubu/deb use different library or installation paths. (deb is usually /usr/bin ubu is usually /usr/local/bin).
