    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.

    LinuxMac 1.3 RELEASE

    o) Make the Linux/Mac release as consistent as possible with the Windows release

    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!!!!

    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!
