I couldn't get RSD to recognize my phone. So I did some searching and came up with a new version of the drivers. I downloaded this --> MotorolaDeviceManager_2.2.28 right from Motorola (USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA). After installing my phone was finally recognized.
Just thought I would add this in case others were having trouble getting their phones recognized.
Stupid me, yesterday I tried flashing the unofficial CM10 ROM from gingerbread, and bricked my phone hardcore. None of these are helping me restore my phone. I was flashing from gingerbread to JB. Used safe strap, and everything. But I think that I forgot to do a nandroid backup. So basically the Gingerbread fastboots will not work and the one for the ICS fastboot will not work either. I have all the latest drivers and RSD 5.3.1 whenever i try to unzip and flash one for the files I get a SDL error message saying, XML format is wrong or image files associated with it are missing. And my phone says in the fast boot menu that it is locked, code 0 :cus:
I was thinking that I could try and flash an ICS rom and then fastboot the ICS package to restore it, will this work?
Any ideas? (maybe I should make a new thread)
try the Droid 4 Utility
I'm still new to flashing and stuff, but try using the tools that jsnweitzel mentions in his signature:

This 12th step is driving me nutz! I'm stuck at this step, because I can't find that famous "fastboot image .zip file"!

But that didn't do the trick. After rebooting I notice I still haven't been able to fully restore. (I'm trying to get rid of the SU app, but it just won't go!)
Any help is greatly appreciated!
I ignore how you can tell whether your phone is recognized by RSD, but I'll download that, see if it helps me.

Just to recap your pm messages, you have the most up to date rsd and moto drivers, right?
The problem you're now having is that rsd doesn't see your phone, right?
Just to be sure, look at the first post on page 10. This guy had your same problem.
