    I tried per your suggestion and it's refusing to flash due to battery life, which I am currently resolving =] From what I have been reading, it has the symptoms of a hard brick (I think, and therefor could very well be completely wrong), except I can load the boot selector menu via m+power and enter AP Fastboot for 1Click/rsdlite (which, aside from current issues, i believe is doing its proper job).

    I went to Verizon today after discovering there was an unused and unclaimed upgrade on our family plan :icon_ banana: and obtained myself a shiny new SGS3 =] with one MAJOR drawback. One of developers' friendliest hardware manufacturers LOCKED THE DAMN ******* BOOTLOADER. So now it's like having my d3 again. With no keyboard. sdfljghadfghaskjvbavbqovn

    Sorry for ranting for split sec =]

    Moral of the story is fixing this little buddy is no longer mandatory as I have a new toy/communications device again, however I would like to resurrect it for a spare phone, d3 development testing and nostalgia's sake (it was my first android =]). I'm going to keep trying a few different things and if I can manage some success I'll be sure to let you know. Much obliged for your help :biggrin:

    I tried .890 via both rsdlite and 1 click, resulting in nada. I am beginning to wonder if flashing too many images has somehow corrupted the partitioning scheme or the storage itself.

    From what I gathered at http://elinux.org/Android_Booting, this problem appears to occurr during the first stage bootloader as it is unable to boot into recovery despite rsdlite confirming a successful flash, never mind the normal boot sequence itself, and the boot loader has somehow been damaged although how that is possible I'm not sure as it is locked and transitively frustrating many d3 peeps (unless this could actually be the possibility of an exploit, which would kick ass! Prolly not the case, but doesn't hurt to be optimistic :) ).

    I just with I could see what the error message on the moto screen is (super duper tiny tiny). Is it possible to A) somehow view that error message via USB and B) completely wipe the entirevfile system clean? I'm actually installing sdk right now but quite frankly I have no clue what I'm doing

    Edit: A) adb is a friend. Now to learn how to use it

    Ovelayer, I'm having the same problem with the flashing process failed 6/18. It seems you no longer have the signature that links to the thread which has the 1click. Can you help me out?

    Thank you so much! Will this just unbrick my phone, or will it also allow me to flash with RSD Lite?

    Np..
    This will sbf you from 906 back to 890 without the use of rsdlite
    It is a .exe file so it will run on windows..
    Just make sure you were on the 906 update or this will softbrick you and you will have to flash the 906 in stock recovery to unbrick yourself

    JUST MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS

    Hope it all works out for ya!
