    Hey, guys!

    I've tried several times the hard factory data reset with no luck. I just want to start from scratch (actual scratch, without the SU app) and re-root.

    This SU app has remained since after the ICS OTA update without the phone even having root access anymore after then.

    Any links to whatever might help are greatly appreciated. I've searched a lot and can't find a solution.

    Thanks!

    Rocky

    P.S. I'm not very smart at the Android talk and work, but I'll do my best to figure it out.

    Go to the Droid4 section of this site, look in Hacks and Roms sections for instructions on how to fastboot the phone back to stock. Factory reset merely erases your personal data and settings, it doesn't wipe the phone clean. Before fastbooting I would erase internal and external memory (setting > storage).

    If I find the instructions I'll post a new reply.

    Orange Choochoo, in case you are able to kindly help again:
    This 12th step is driving me nutz! I'm stuck at this step, because I can't find that famous "fastboot image .zip file"!

    I was, however, able to decompress something similar, this:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\Downloads\VRZ_XT894_6.7.2-180_DR4-16_M2-37_1FF.xml (1).zip

    But that didn't do the trick. After rebooting I notice I still haven't been able to fully restore. (This SU app just won't go!)

    Any help is greatly appreciated!
