    Its not working for me :sad-b:



    I followed the directions that standard101 has typed out.

    Ran Droid4Windows.bat as administrator and chose option 1. Hit enter at the "Before continuing, ensure USB....".

    I get the following....

    Waiting for device...
    The system cannot find the path specified.
    The system cannot find the path specified.

    Please disregard my previous post.

    I followed the suggestion of Droid_Boi86 and just ran the .bat file and now I have a Superuser Icon

    Rooted, SS'd, created recovery of stock+root, no problems. Booted into Safe Strap a couple times no problem, but now, if I hit menu, it boot loops. If I hit search, it starts normally.

    Two things I possibly messed up on:

    1: I downloaded Rom Manager and premium out of pure habit, but I realized my mistake and uninstalled them without running anything

    2: I installed Busy Box Installer, and when I clicked install, it gave me an error saying that it was not compatible with my device. I have also uninstalled Busy Box Installer.

    Anybody know why booting into recovery loops me, but booting regular works fine? I haven't seen this issue in this or any other threads.

    Thanks!

    FYI for any Linux users trying this:

    It works, but not with sudo. :(

    If you want to go the sudo route, just use 'sudo su', then run the script :D

    BTW:

    Huge thanks to all those who have made this possible! You guys rock!

    Try the ICS Only tool in my signature. The original creators of the tool haven't been updating it. So I wrote some revisions and posted for everyone.

    Alright new question: what does the "fastboot" option in the Droid 4 Utility in the OP do? Would that allow me to fastboot my device?

    Can you forgive a newbie question.....I want to run this utility as I have been getting constant errors with the ICS update because I uninstalled some bloatware. But what will this do to my Droid 4? Will I be able to get future updates? Will I still have my installed apps?
    Thanks

    Its my understanding that the ota ICS update verifies several things during installation that can error out the process like you've been experiencing. I've read those things include modifying system components like your notification icons, still having the device rooted, or uninstalling bloatware like you mentioned doing. This is a good example of why unwanted apps should be frozen instead of uninstalled. Get the apps back that you uninstalled, and assuming your un-rooted and haven't done anything else you should be good to go.

    Zalan,
    Thank you for all the information.
    My Droid 4 currently is rooted, I reinstalled all the apps that I uninstalled, and I am still getting an error during the ICS update with the /system/app/VCAST.apk (i have made sure the file permissions are correct).
    So at this point I am considering using the GB utility. I would just like to know what it will do to my phone.
    Thanks
