    (Solution) Invalid Flash Mode (S) (Boot Failure) / Bricked Bionic

    I have had a problem with bricking my device a few times... So while searching for a fix I came across a person named timmy! This is not my fix but theirs!

    Original Post
    http://www.rootzwiki.com/topic/13485-unbrick-your-bionic-here/

    READ EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT THIS FIX

    ***We have experienced a few issues writing the system.PLEASE make sure you flash with the usb in the back usb port of your pc and remove any other usb's. It's MUCH more reliable.*****

    I would also like to give a special thanks to CELLZEALOT for helping me troubleshoot the errors that have arose. His knowledge has been indispensable!!!

    How to use
    Unzip "
    flashme.zip" (Download File below, to unzip use winzip or winrar)
    Open RSD (Download from here -
    http://www.mediafire.com/?b8obqitf6nj981j)
    **If you need Motorola Drivers download from here - Drivers
    HTML Code:
    http://www.motorola.com/consumers/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=bda09ec8009a0210VgnVCM1000008806b00aRCRD&pubid=987654

    Connect device after you are in "Fastboot" Mode (To get into Fastboot do the following - Press volume down, then power button)
    Select "..." and find where "
    default_flash_targa.xml" is located, click it
    Press start
    Thats it

    FYI
    RSD will flash everything you need automatically. It will automatically reboot into recovery to finish the radio flash, reboot the system when its done, RSD will say to manually power up device, ignore that message. Wait until it says "Pass" before you do anything with your phone. You will be prompted there is a update available. Forever root and sign into google before you accept and install. If your coming from the .901 update, after recovery flashes the 5.5.893 update, you will be throw into fastboot with a cdt.bin failure. You will have to flash the cdt.bin from the. 901 update zip. When you reboot, it will say failed. But everything will be in place. The boot and recovery image are courtesy of realbbb.

    Let me know what you think, it worked first time for me!

    $29 bucks for what exactly?....seems odd to me that WinRar costs money when 7Zip can basically do everything the same

    What do you mean by
    Open RSD
    I don't see a file name or file type RSD.

    RSD Lite is software used by Motorola & Verizon to flash data to your phone. I could only find version 5.4 here on Droid Forums but HERE is a link to 5.6 on XDA
