Sweet Jeebus, you sir are a-freakin-mazing. After almost a week of a bricked Razr, I finally resurrected it with your help. Thank you so much. You deserve a medal.
1. Plug in your phone BEFORE you start the utility.
2. No. You are softbricked. This state inherently means that all you can access is the fastboot menu.
3. Answered at top.
4. See #2.
Should have answered this a while ago. Life has kept me too busy for playtime.

When attempting step 10, I get an error that says....asser_failed: applypatch_check("EMMC:boot:8388608:46b1d867743b5a 4db403dc2c67a124cbd2b173:888608:7abc93ac503ff39068 8f5e933824211be6789b") E:Error in /tmp/sideload/package.zip (Status 7) Installation aborted. Any help would be great...I have no phone now...
I wish I could do more than write this to express my gratitude for your insight and knowledge. Thank you again...
P.S. I know others had a hand in this as well, so i want to extend a huge thanks to everyone involved.

My situation was slightly different as to how I bricked my phone...But this solution still worked like a charm. YOU ARE THE MAN!!!
Well folks, it appears that CamoMike has done it yet again ...this time for ME!
My phone failed on the .16 upgrade, probably because I didn't do a good job of getting it completely back to stock - deleting circles and such...similar to Papa_T above. So I then had a bad install.
Upon powering on, the regular lock screen would appear and I could unlock to the Phone, Camera and Text normally, but it failed unlocking to the Home Screen. It would open and then stop at a black screen with the Status bar showing. I could pull down the status bar, but couldn't get to a regular home screen. I could even press and hold the Home button and get to the running/recent apps, but simply pressing home always resulted in the black screen with status bar.
So I went with Mike's plan.
I am happy to report that the side-loading of the Christmas Jelly Bean Leak is going fine. I will then install the .16 upgrade (overlay for the Jelly Bean Leak), and should be back to complete stock Jelly Bean on version .16.
Update1; The recovery flashing was a success...now to boot into Jelly Bean Leak and then to upgrade.
Update2; The side-loading of the Jelly Bean Leak went without a hitch. Then did the side-load of the Blur_Version.98.72.8.XT912.Verizon.en.US.zip, and it's now rebooting. I will have the most recent version of Jelly Bean running in moments!
Update3; I've completed the 98.72.16 upgrade, and AFTERWARDS Rooted with the Root achieved for JB OTA RAZR/MAXX XT912 (RAZR Blade) exploit! by Dan Rosenberg! This proves that the exploit works even on the Jelly Bean OTA versions! Finally, I successfully installed Safestrap 3.1 and completed a system backup.
All is well and good in the world of Droid RAZR MAXX and the OTA Jelly Bean and I owe all it to CamoMike (and of course to the Devs Matt, Dan and Hashcode for their awesome RAZR tools)!!
THANKS, CAMOMIKE for your EXCELLENT post and thread. You will be recognized by members as a leader and for good reason. You have showed those with soft-bricked phones a real path out of the scary woods and back into the comfort of the suburbs... (pardon the reference to "Over the Hedge" Loved the movie! LOL!)

Tried your setup to recover. got all the way to installing blur_Verizon.616.211.XT912.Verizon.en.us.zip.
Installed fine up to BP.
Failed at: assert failed:Motorola Motoflash ("/tmp/bp.img")
I was actually getting excited up to that point.
Any good ideas of advice?
PS---Forgot to state that I was on ICS, and upgraded to JB from the Dec. update file. Also was rooted via RAZRblade.
This is/was my first attempt at rooting and up till now was going great. Unfortunatly I attempted to do the JB leaked to JB
Update fix. That's what got Me int this mess.

I tried to run the recover and it failed at step 10
Verifying current system...
assert failed: apply_patch_check("EMMC:boot:8388608:46b1d867743b5 a4db403dc2cd67a124cbd2b2173:8388608:7abc93a
E:Error in /tmp/sideload/package.zip
Any ideas of what I can do at this point.
Kudos Camo, excellent job! Everything went fine untill step 6 - got stuck in AP fastboot. After a few attempts, I did a forced reboot and then it went into configuration. Afterwards, i was able to go into recovery, applied update and all seemed to be fine. Attempting to root however, failed. Upon opening razr blade, it searched for device (never found) opened daemon and stopped. I let it sit about 20min. and still nothing happened. Any ideas?
