Dell Inspiron N5110, less than a year old
Intel Core i7-2670QM
3 USB 3.0 ports
1 USB 2.0 Port
1 USB 3.0/eSATA Port
Host OS is Win 7 x64 Ultimate (But RSD Lite doesn't work with it :/ )
Virtual Box VM is Win XP Home Edition, fresh install, no bloat/crapware
VM only recognizes the USB 2.0 Port, so that's the one I'm using
Cable I'm using is either of the two USB cables that came with my/my girlfriend's Bionics.
Using her Bionic to charge the battery in between flash attempts.
I suppose I could find a desktop to use, but if it belongs to any of my friends, I doubt it will be anywhere close to the specs of my machine.
Well your pc is definitely above the specs required, but I have seen this before and the person had to use another pc.
However, we could try one more thing, if you wish. I think its worth a shot and I will walk you through it.
Do you use gtalk? PM me your gmail.
Ok - Great news everybody!
After having some trouble meeting up schedules for him to walk me through it, eye_dea finally had a chance to VERY GENEROUSLY take some time out of his weekend and help me through this. It was a little time consuming, as the first go round didn't succeed - but through no fault of his own. It was the USB port I was using. He patiently encouraged me to try again, it all worked, and I'm currently installing .905 as we speak.
And what's more, I emphatically want to throw some money his way, and he won't even accept it.
Not enough good things can be said about eye_dea and people like him, so I'll just say the world would be better of with more like him.
edit: Update was successful... Now rooting
edit 2: at about 1:30p.m.today, I had a useless soft-bricked Phone. Now, at 4:20p.m., I have a stock Droid Bionic rooted and running the latest .905 update. Awesomeness.
