    THIS IS ONLY USABLE BY OWNERS WITH DROID 4's on 6.16.206 LEAK ONLY

    DO NOT USE THIS IF YOU ARE ON ANYTHING ELSE

    Here is the link to downloading the 6.16.208 kernel:

    https://www.box.com/s/0b8f9590b2611ae748c6

    USE THE EXACT SAME PROCEDURE AS STATED IN THE GET UNSTUCK THREAD!!!

    However before using the unstickICS tool, replace the boot206 image with this image and rename it to boot206. DONT PUT .img ON THE END OF IT!
    IT will work the same as long as you do it as ive told you.

    You're welcome!

    Credit to mattlgroff for helping me in getting the kernel complete.

    Dumb question alert:

    What is the benefit of installing this if you are on .206?

    Thanks

    Presumably this lets you upgrade to .208, if you follow the same instructions as the unstuck (200-206) thread.

    You will lose root if you do this. No way to keep it since you are basically fastbooting to. 219 then flashing the. 208 boot image before updating.

    What he said:

    Especially since you'll lose root, what are the differences between .206 and .208? Are there really enough changes for it to be worth updating?¿

    The instructions say root, protect root, temp unroot, then restore root.

    That will only work if you are coming from stock. 219 to the latest. 208 ics leak. If you have to re-flash the kernel to go from. 206 to. 208 you will lose root. As rsd will wipe out your root and the backup made by voodoo. Personally I am sticking with. 206 to maintain root and due to it being nearly perfect.

    I thought he was coming from 219 because the Unstick instructions don't mention anything about root/unroot etc.

    And yes, going from one leak to another you will lose root and it cannot be regained until the ICS root method is released.

    Does anyone know where to get unstickics? I can't find it anywhere. All the links are dead and I desperately want to get off of the 206 kernel.

    Just to be clear, because I have been fishing through instructions.

    Load 208.zip onto my SD
    Fast boot
    Flash 208 kernel from Utility
    Boot to recovery
    Apply 208.zip

    Is that right? Will that successfully get me to 208, after which point I can get to 215?

    OK, so literally no matter what images I load, the tool accomplishes nothing. Everything it tries to flash, fails. It flash on and off 3x until finally it reboots and I'm back up, running 206, like always. Unreal.

    what you want is the .215 kernel and .zip file, change the .215 kernel to ICSFIX , put the .215 zip on ur external sd card and use option 16 from the d4 utility, also make sure u have the 219 fastboot files
