i used the .215 file. and yeah it's pretty crappy. i have not had this phone long at all, and it's completely bricked. i have had to use my old droid X and that is the worst phone i have ever had. I forgot how slow and messed up that phone was. Is there NO way at all or me to fix my droid 4 at all without buying that $25 factory USB cable?
There is the d4 flash it tool created by kolk at project eternity developers. It is simply an alternative way to flash the xml. You can find a link to it on xda developers or go to the project eternity developers website. Flashing an xml takes alot of juice, its not like flashing the old sbf files. So it is always wise to start with a full battery. I personally never flash a rom or attempt to modify major system files unless i am fully charged to prevent a low battery situation. I would also advise anyone that has an issue flashing an xml the first few times to power the phone off and request advice before running into a low battery error.
Always, always, always use the cable that comes with the phone to flash.
Hope you get it figured out.

Alright. Got the latest one flashed on my phone . 219 I think? Had to power both of the battery terminals via external power source to get it done. Problem is, when I fist took my phone apart, I tugged on the battery. That was a big no no , as I snapped the ribbon cable. I'm getting to the "?" battery screen now so that looks good. Also, SGMD1 could you edit the original post to say at the top "DO NOT DO THIS UNLESS YOUR BATTERY IS AT 100%". I think this will keep a lot of people from having to fix their phone the hard way. Because even if they are at 50/60% or something, if the flash fails, they may not have enough battery life to do a second flash.
