    Bricked Droid 4 going from Leak .213 to Fastboot ICS?

    So I was on the .213 leak, and I flashed the fastboot ICS files from here using RSD Lite: http://sbf.droid-developers.org/cdma...37_1FF.xml.zip

    Phone boots into the boot animation and gets stuck. Recovery is broken. Any ideas what I can do to fix this?

    I can't mount my sd card since the phone won't boot normally or in recovery mode. Do I just need to put it in a phone that will mount and copy over the files? Any other suggestions?

    Well you could just pull the SD card and use an adapter or usb reader of some kind to just copy the files directly onto it off your computer first. But the method myfishbear is suggesting does not require that the phone boots really, you just hold both volume keys while pressing power to turn on the phone, and then use the volume down to scroll and volume up to select. Once you are in fastboot recovery mode follow the instructions for using the Droid 4 tool to basically sbf the phone.

    Gotcha. I tried flashing the 217 kernel, and I'm now stuck at AP fastboot with an Invalid Flash message. My battery is low, so I'll reattempt once I get it charged up.

    No dice. Nothing helps. I cannot get it to come out of AP FastBoot mode. It says Boot Failure.

    If you're coming from another leak you would have to use the Droid4 Utility to fastboot 219, the 217 kernel, and then apply the 217 via recovery.

    Since you tried SBF from 213 it won't flash all the required files so you had bootfailure (that's what I'm guessing, I'm not 100% sure if RSDLsite can flash ICS over any leak other than 217) . Go back into APFastboot and use the Droid4 Utility as described above.

    I have to solder a factory cable. My battery is low and won't charge now since I can't get out of fastboot mode. I'll post results once I get this going.
