    Hello everyone, this is my first post here and I hope someone can help me. I was rooted with R3L3AS3DRoot, then I flashed back to stock and updated. I was in a hurry and wasn't thinking and I tried to root again with R3L3AS3DRoot. Now when I try to flash back to stock with RSD lite, all I get is Failed to Flash error. Tried factory reset, but all I keep getting is back to Fast Boot mode. I've been reading forums and there are some really intelligent people on here.....Please help.....or am I permently bricked???? I know how to flash with RSD lite but that's about the extent of my knowledge. :blink:

    This will work for you. Just follow the instructions verbatim and I'm positive you'll get back to stock or even get to .901 with root if you want.

    From XDA: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1450836

    Yesterday afternoon I attempted the Bionic Path Saver update with 901 and Liberty 2.0. Due to issues with flashing the Webtop image and some flaws in the script I wound up with a dead phone. After hacking up a charger and over 12 hours of experimentation I was able to get the phone and and was able to update it. I do not want anyone to have to go through what I went through so I am posting this. I do not take credit for the files, I only came up with the combination. All download links lead to the creators. Let me know how this works out and of course always create backups before performing this.

    **Things you will need**
    A FULLY charged battery
    My SafeBionicPathSaver_v2.rar -
    http://www.filesharesite.com/files/2...er_v2.rar.html
    RSDLite 5.5 - In this package
    Motorola Drivers - In this package
    flashme.zip - In this package
    Liberty 2.0 (.901 OTA Compatible) - http://rootzwiki.com/topic/13096-901...th-custom-rom/
    bionicbootstrap.apk - http://droidmodderx.com/bionic/boots...or-the-bionic/

    **Instructions**
    1.) Install RSDLite 5.5 and Motorola Drivers (32-bit or 64-bit accordingly).
    2.) Extract flashme.zip to any location on your computer.
    3.) Extract SafeBionicPathSaver_v2.rar (ME) files to any location on your computer.
    4.) Copy bionicbootstrap.apk and copy the Liberty 2.0 (.901 OTA Compatible) ZIP to the root directory of your SD card.
    5.) Connect phone to computer, set phone to USB Debugging Mode, and set it to Charge Only. You will also need to allow "Unknown sources" in your application settings.
    6.) Go to the directory from Step 3 and run SBPSscript.bat. Let it run and wait for Phase 1 to complete.
    7.) Phone should now be at the bootloader. Open up RSDLite and browse to the XML in the directory from Step 2. Flash this and the phone should reboot, it will take a while.
    8.) The phone should now be at the Android setup screen. You may now contune following the prompts in the SBPSscript.bat script. Watch for any errors as directed. The phone should end up booted into stock recovery.
    9.) At the recovery menu you are going to install updates manually. First do update893.zip, then do update901.zip. Make sure there were no errors then reboot the phone.
    10.) You are now at version .901 and should still be rooted. To test root you can try and update Superuser by going to Superuser's menu and updating the binary. If it fails with a permission issue, you do not have root and have to start over.

    ***IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO REMAIN ON THE STOCK ROOTED .901 ROM YOU CAN STOP HERE. THE REST OF THE STEPS ARE FOR GETTING LIBERTY3 2.0 INSTALLED.***

    11.) Now install bionicbootstrap.apk, open the application, and press the "Bootstrap Recovery" button (grant any SU access). This will install the Clockwork Recovery ROM and would fail if you were not still rooted.
    12.) Now click the "Reboot Recovery" button. You will now be in the Clockwork Recovery Mod.
    13.) At this menu you will need to wipe data, cache, dalvik cache, and format /system.
    14.) Now you will select "install zip from sdcard" using the volume and power buttons and choose the Liberty ZIP you uploaded in Step 6.
    15.) After this is done you can reboot the phone and you will have a Liberty3 2.0 / .901 Radio Bionic!
