    FIX: Soft Bricked after reverting from Jelly Bean update


    These instructions will get you back to a WORKING
    ROOTED

    Jelly Bean Razr/Maxx instead of a warm brick in your pocket



    I am in no way trying to steal anyone's thunder but I wanted to update HOW to get back to a working JB if you get errors or try to roll back to ICS (which we all know you shouldn't do). I have read many threads and tried so many variables to now have a perfect solution. This spawned from d4vr0s --> Soft Bricked after reverting from Jelly Bean update

    Tested on my personal Droid Razr XT912 US - Verizon (multiple, multiple times). I used the following to update it to Jelly Bean - [Leaked-Ota][Cdma][4.1.2] Jelly Bean 98.72.8 (12/27/12) - xda-developers. All hell broke loose when I tried to re-root (with methods that WERE WARNED) and blew up/bricked/softbricked my razr.

    BEFORE DOING ANYTHING
    1. Have a copy of Blur_Version.6.16.211.XT912.Verizon.en.US on your external hard drive. Make sure it is a fresh/clean copy. Dev-Host - Blur_Version.6.16.211.XT912.Verizon.en.US.zip - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service
    2. Download MD5Checker here - MD5 Checker - CNET Download.com and make sure the hash = "c8772dc305d0de94d6e977fb51f3eac5"
    3. Download Matt's 1.82 utility here - http://batakang.com/ftp/DROID_RAZR/D...tility1.82.zip
    FIX TIME - YOU CANNOT be plugged into a PC during this. Either be fully charged or charge through an AC wall outlet.
    1. With a lovely FUBARed razr/maxx boot into recovery mode
    2. Run "wipe data/factory reset"
    3. Run "wipe cache partition"
    4. Reboot phone and select "AP Fastboot"
    5. Run Matt's 1.82 utility on your phone, choose option 1. (Boot.img will fail but it is ok)
    6. Power off, wait 3 seconds and power on. You will boot into Android configuration. (5 minutes)
    7. Once the config is done you will see the red M boot logo and then a black screen. Force boot into recovery
    8. Run "wipe data/factory reset"
    9. Run "wipe cache partition"
    10. Select "apply update from external storage" and select "Blur_Version.6.16.211.XT912.Verizon.en.US.zip " (10 minutes)
    11. Run "wipe data/factory reset"
    12. Run "wipe cache partition"final time
    Thanks to kijutsu for making this process a bit faster...

    ONTO ROOT

    Follow this post - http://www.droidrzr.com/index.php/to...12-razr-blade/ and donate to Dan Rosenberg here - http://goo.gl/zBGb0.

    UPON COMPLETION/TESTING ROOT WORKS

    I highly recommend installing Safestrap 3.11 - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1391875. Run a full backup and you can sit back and enjoy a working Jelly Bean phone (finally)...

    There you go, 18 hours testing to about 10 minutes of typing. If this helps one person that's all that matters. If anyone has issues regarding these steps AFTER TRYING THESE EXACT STEPS, please let me know, and I will do my best to assist you.

    Please like this if you have used it successfully. I don't need money, but support goes a long way...

    1. With a lovely FUBARed razr/maxx boot into Recovery mode
    2. Run "wipe data/factory reset"
    3. Run "wipe cache partition"
    4. Select "apply update from external storage" and select "Blur_Version.6.16.211.XT912.Verizon.en.US.zip " (should take about 5 minutes)
    5. Select "reboot system now" and hold both volume buttons to get back into Boot Mode Selection Menu (0A.77)
    Where mine kept failing6. Select "Normal Powerup" (else it will get stuck in a failed AP Fastboot due to the boot.img not loading properly)

    There you go, 18 hours in about 10 minutes of typing. If this helps one person that's all that matters. If anyone has issues regarding these steps AFTER TRYING, please let me know, and I will do my best to assist you.

    OK, so this appears to be quite possibly a valuable solution for the soft-bricked JB phones out there. I certainly don't see such effort as stealing anyone's thunder. If it's helpful and was derived from your own efforts, or if you've compiled others' works and given proper credit to those others, then it's fine and deserves its own post.

    Good job. Now we have to get others whose phones are soft-bricked to try these methods and give us positive feedback. Let's watch this and see where it goes!

    Re: FIX: Soft Bricked after reverting from Jelly Bean update

    I don't have a any sort of bricked RAZR. I have the jb update running fine on my phone but I never protected root. Do you think this would work for a phone that isn't bricked? I would do anything to have my root back lol

    It's possible, but I am not brave enough to try it on my RAZR MAXX. I WOULD consider trying it on a cheap one from eBay, but I'd have to buy one first.

    I have an s3 that doesn't work on Verizon cause it was flashed for cricket. Saturday I'm supposed to trade it for a rezound if that goes through I just might try and see what happens.

    Although I thought this post was to go back to ICS that's. Got a little excited and didn't read it all lol

    I tried to get my head around how complicated Android can be. I have been in IT for 15 years and this is new to me so I am learning during all this chaos.

    I will keep updating the OP as necessary, but for now, its complete.

    After following these steps is it possible to use Utility 1.82 to restore Root to .211 ICS 4.0.4 and also establish a normal working boot?

    Thumbs up

    A BIG "THANK YOU" TO YOU, CAMOMIKE!!!

    I was soft-bricked after (stupidly/accidentally) restoring old system data with TiBU after the JB upgrade. Your post allowed me to regain control, get the phone to boot, and now I'm back up and running. I could not have done it without your post.

    THANK YOU.
