    After downloading the leaked 2.3.6 (6.12.173) version for the RAZR, I have been having problems with the phone shutting off and freezing up. I am stock and want to return my phone to the last known build of 6.11.748.

    Is there ANYONE who would be kind enough to guide me through the process of doing this? I feel like such an idiot - had no problem downloading and installing the upgrade, but now don't know how to get it back to 6.11.748.

    Any guidance is appreciated!

    Thanks much.

    Go here:http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-razr/195410-2-3-6-update.html. Read this thread. In the thread is a link to a .748 (current stock version) to download. After downloading to your computer, transfer the file to your external sd card. Boot into stock recovery and flash the downloaded zip file. Do not extract the zip file.

    Thanks for your reply. I went to that link but there wasn't a link to the old version. Thoughts?

    Did it earlier, best thing to do is RSD back to stock then wipe, then update. By using the zip I can't send texts, but I can receive them. Gotta flash back to stock later.

    Thanks for your reply. I tried this link and the installation failed. I am at a loss. All I want to do is get this 6.12.173 off of my phone and get the 6.11.748 back. I don't know what else to do.

    I was fortunate that I didn't have problems when I went from 748 running Inflex back down 744 using the fastboot file without doing a factory wipe first.

    I'm running 173 with much pleasure since last night. I ran speed tests and the phone is running a little faster.

    Just to be clear.... it's the installation failing? Or are you saying it fails to download to your phone?

    Yeah, after looking back I realized that FoxKat accidentally gave you the wrong link. That is not a flashable zip to get back to 748 that is just a zipped folder of the preinstall files from 173....honest mistake.

    Click the following link. Scroll down and look for the paragraph right after step 10 (starts out "Grats" ) and you will see the dl link for the right zip file.

    Installing 6.12.173.xt912 - DroidRzr.com

    You may have to register to see the link if you are not a member or droidrzr but it is quick and this is the place to go.

    Good luck.

    Just went through this yesterday going from the leaked update (6.12.173) back to .748. Downloaded the file; Blur_Version.6.12.173.XT912.Verizon.en.US.zip and flashed back to .748 without issue. Soon found that I couldn't send sms/mms but could receive them (many having this issue). After further investigation, decided to RSD back to .744 and start fresh. Made the mistake of not doing a "wipe data/factory reset" after getting back to .744 and went ahead installed the OTA back to .748. It was an easy way to go as all of my apps/data stayed intact BUT once the update to .748 was complete, I still didn't have the ability to send sms/mms.
    Long story short, RSD'd back to .744, wiped data/factory reset (in recovery), set up basic accounts, rooted, reinstalled apps/data with TB, OTA to .748 and all is good again. Some people have had success just flashing back from .173 to .748 but the safe way to insure no bugs is the RSD method.
    There's a thread at DroidRZR with complete instructions (probably here too but I don't know where).
    One way or another, you'll get back. Good luck.

    If you click the link I posted it takes you to droidrzr.com and the thread about 173. Scroll down a little bit to step 10.

    Then you will see a short paragraph and at the end of that paragraph is a link (click the word "here" ) and the download will start.

    No need to apologize. We are here to help.

    After download, save it to your sdcard and flash it in stock recovery just like you did before.

    Keep in mind the files are named based on what you are coming from so the file will say 6.12.173 because you are coming from 173.

    Just got confirmation from another user that flashing the zip back to 748 messed up texting for him also but he did a factory reset and all its back to normal.

    No need to rsd.
