    If you're already on 247, just boot into recovery and do the factory reset. No need to reinstall unless you've messed up the system partition.

    I just didn't want to have anything left behind that I've tampered with.

    Like I said, unless you messed with the system or preinstall partitions, then doing a factory reset will clean it up. Otherwise, yes, a reinstall + factory reset is equivalent to an FXZ.

    Its still not working for me. I honestly don't know what to do. Is it because I'm on a Mac maybe?

    Thanks, just wanted to confirm since we have no "official" FXZ

    Install of 7.8 completed on second attempt no problem
    No luck still won't complete the 8/14 system.img flash... RSD is going through the motions then about a minute after getting to 8/14 text appears on that same line that says Phone returned FAIL and rsd exits. reboot phone to recovery fails and phone says
    Invalid Flash Mode (S) (Boot Failure)
    Battery OK
    OK to program
    Transfer mode
    USB Connected
    Invalid CG Version (CG recovery)

    i wish RSD had a progress bar like it did on my old DX.

    just passed RSD now installing from recovery, I love how everyting is now laid out in HOB and im shocked at how anyone could ever mess up an install.

    Again thanks for all your hard work


    EDIT: rebooting now

    @jc1497, I sent you another PM. Please try that and reply to it. I'll continue to help you in PM until we get it solved. At least all the work I did last night was able to get you back to the LTE error. That's good. :)

    We are back from the brink. Second PM did it. Update completed. That was awesome. Not sure why RSD was acting up but it just would not flash. :hail: Thank you again.

    Just want to say thanks Sam!! I just used HoB to go to 232. I'm not adventurous enough to go further, as I do not want to lose my upgrade path. So far so good. Battery seems to be sucking faster now though. Will have to look around for solutions to that. Thanks!!!!
