    NEW WINDOWS FUNCTIONALITY REVEALED

    Create a NORSD empty file in the SamuriHL_HouseOfBionic directory with no extension....just NORSD. It can be an empty text file. This will disable RSD mode in the House of Bionic and revert to flashing with moto-fastboot. For those having problems with RSD and need an alternative, this is how you do it. The functionality with moto-fastboot mirrors how the Linux/Mac script works. I've had 2 people test it successfully so far. Neither could use RSD for various reasons.

    Newbie instructions for creating the file (sigh):

    o) Right click in the SamuriHL_HouseOfBionic directory, select New, Text Document. Change the FULL name to NORSD. *NOT* NORSD.txt as that will NOT work.

    Mac and Linux people. I added a new link in the OP for you guys and gals. I tested it on my 64 bit Ubuntu VM and it works. No idea if it'll work on a Mac or not. It's called InnoExtractor. It'll allow you to extract the ### directories from my update installers. Ordinarily since they're windows only you'd have to use WINE to run it and extract it. However, with the InnoExtractor script, you can download my update installers, run the innoextractor.sh script on it, and it'll extract an app\### directory. Move the ### directory into the LinuxMac_HouseOfBionic directory and you're good to go. You can do the same thing for the FXZ, as well. So if you're trying to get the 247 update, you'd download the SamuriHL_HouseOfBionic_(247).exe and then run the following command:

    ./innoextractor /path/to/SamuriHL_HouseOfBionic_\(247\).exe

    Then you'd have an app folder and inside that would be the 247 folder you move to the root of the LinuxMac_HouseOfBionic directory to add 247 support.

    I hope this helps!

    I read everything twice and decided to go to 247. Had the same hiccup so created NORSD and it worked as advertised. Now dealing with sluggish data and no call capability but I am confident that the answers lie within these posts. Checking SetCPU and if that doesn't work, factory reset. If that doesn't work then a Galaxy IIIs will solve it and I'll donate my brick to reinforce the foundation of the HoB.

    Hey maybe someone could shed some light on an issue I'm having. I tried a .247 update from .905 and got hung up when I tried to verify the md5. This is the message I got:

    1346 kb/s <20199 bytes in 0.014s>
    8 kb/s <53 bytes in 0.005s>
    rm: remove '/data/local/tmp/sa-md5sum'?

    At this point the keyboard was not responsive and eventually it failed the install. When I check the SD card I do see the 247.md5 file but I didnt see the 247 update file when I ran through a second time and skipped the update to SD card and md5 check. I got to the recovery menu but no update to select on the SD card. I'm obviously new to this but I appreciate any help I can get. Going to bed so I will start fresh tomorrow, thanks!

    Sounds like the update zip did not transfer

    At the moment you can't boot. You need to get the update on the sdcard. Since the phone won't boot until the update is installed in recovery you'll need to do it outside the phone.

    Ok, I'm trying that but everything I try to transfer to the SD card is going slow as hell and keeps hanging up, is that normal? I'm pretty green so I'm assuming I'm copying the Blur_Version.5.9.905.XT875.Verizon.en.US(67247) zip file as well as the 247.md5 and the boot and recovery image files? Also once these are transfered, can I just use recovery or does it need to go through hob still? I appreciate your patience since I'm about to start throwing stuff :) My stuff never goes smoothly..........

    You only need to copy the Blur_Version zip fie to the sdcard. The other files are for the HouseOfBionic script. In fact, since your process didn't complete before, you should manually delete the 247.md5 file as that normally gets cleaned up at the end of the process. Sounds like you have some PC issues going on that are outside of the scope of what I can support. It can take a while to transfer the file, but, it generally doesn't lock up the PC in doing so. I've done it from a Linux VM and haven't had issues like that, so, something is definitely not quite right with your PC.

    I have a quick question. I installed 232 with HoB yesterday. When I reboot the phone, it comes up in the AP FastbootFlash Mode (S) (FLash Failure) screen. I press volume up and down and power it up and select Normal Powerup and it boots fine. How do I fix this?

    I'd probably use the option in the House of Bionic that says "Repair AP Fastboot ERROR"...

    Well, I guess if you'd use that, I'll try it too :biggrin:

    I guess I should have fired up the HoB again, then I wouldn't have needed to ask that stupid question.
