    So I'm trying to unroot my phone, and good lord what a task this is turning out to be! I might not ever perma-root a phone again.

    So I found a few available methods to unroot, however NOW my phone isn't being recognized by my PC. Everytime I try it says "USB Device Not Recognized." Worked just fine a few days ago. Only change is I've been using a different charger the past few days.

    Anyways, I can't use ANY of these methods I searched relentlessly to find because I can't connect my damn phone. I need to send it back. Any suggestions are GREATLY appreciated.

    Bionic...you've broken my heart :icon_ cry:

    lol.....so I thought I seen you post in the. 5.5.893 FXZ thread?.....

    Read that

    Then all you have to do is run the XML in RSDLite and it will take you to stock 'unrooted 5.5.893

    That's why I asked if you tried while in fastboot menu...if you still recieve the USB device bnot recognized, then tell me if you have an error in your fastboot menu...(ie; Flash Failure or Invalid CDT)...if not then try reinstalling your Motorola USB driver

    Are you familiar with using fastboot/adb? Does your computer recognize the phone when booted into fastboot?

    You could also download the 902 fxz and moto-fastboot just the system and wipe data/cache

    It's times like these I wish I had 2 computers.

    But no, I'm not familiar with fastboot or ADB. I have a slight understanding of what they are, but not so much what to do with them. Sorry I'm noob, but I truly appreciate the help.

    Mbk, what I meant with my post was I hit the "power button + volume down" and plugged the cable in, but nothing changed, and I had no clue what to do from there. Apologies but I don't really know what you mean. I had also already installed/re-installed the drivers several times. It's just so weird because it was working fine maybe 3 days ago...started pretty much right after I factory reset to get the .902 OTA.

    Download RSDLite from the other thread (5.5.893 FXZ thread)...as well as the 5.5.893 FXZ from that thread ....

    Install RSDLite, unzip the FXZ zip file...

    Launch RSDLite, hook up your Bionic while in fastbbot menu ( make sure it states OK to Program on your Bionic's fastboot menu)...

    RSDLite should now say connected...if not then you will need to sort out the driver issue, if it says connected then proceed to next step...

    On the top of RSDLite, next to the start button, browse you computer to the XML in the FXZ unzipped folder...

    Press start and let it finish all steps.....it should flash and reboot your Bionic to the Android Welcome screen...

    If all goes well then you should be on stock 5.5.893, unrooted... from there you can accept the 5.9.902 OTA if you'd like

    I see what you're saying now, then I guess it is a driver issue, which is what I suspected originally. However I can't figure out how to remedy it. I've re-installed every old driver and installed the newest one (v.5.2.1 right?), but at the fastboot menu it just says "Ok to connect data cable," even with it plugged in.

    So it never actually says Transfer Mode on fastboot?...okay, try another USB cable or another USB port if you haven't as yet.
