    This tool is based on the original D4 Utility with additions and rewrites by me. Doing any of this is at your own risk.

    08/14 Tool Version now 2.0 !!! THE JUMP TOOL IS DEAD!!! No reason for this now that we have ICS Fastboot files.

    08/31 Tool Version now 2.1 Here's what's new
    10/25 Tool Version 2.2 corrected minor script error and updated to safestrap 3.05

    1. Set of instruction included within the tool. Once you open the tool select menu 1 to display them. This is a .txt file so you must have some reader (I use notepad++).

    2. Safestrap 3.05 (Thanks Hashcode)

    3. Latest Superuser (3.1.3) and binary (3.1.1)

    4. Restore to 6.16.217 ICS or upgrade a GB phone to 6.16.217 ICS with option to save or erase data

    5. Unroot script - This will remove superuser, the su binary and busybox. However if you boot into recovery it will still indicate root or at least past root (qe display in recovery). Even a fastboot with data wipe will not reset this.

    Where to download:
    http://d-h.st/users/jsnweitzel

    If you have trouble connecting your phone be sure you have the latest drivers installed from moto:
    https://motorola-global-portal.custh...p/30,6720,8302


    Add the ICS fastboot file to the lite tool to run menu 11 or 12. Get it here:
    http://sbf.droid-developers.org/cdma_maserati/list.php Then unzip it and add the files to the "files" folder of the tool.

    Still contains the prior tool options. See the screen shot.

    If you have trouble connecting your phone be sure you have the latest drivers installed from moto:
    https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/app/answers/prod_detail/a_id/78460/p/30,6720,8302

    Use this tool at your own risk.

    Awesome!
    Been waiting/watching for this all day today lol.
    Any significant upgrades to .215 as opposed to .213?
    Thanks for the utility man! Kinda wish I could develop so I can help create nifty things like this.

    Well chrome is built in now and some new task program, but I haven't used it.

    Making the changes in the script isn't too difficult. Just understanding what the result will be is a little different. If you are on windows 7 click the top right of the pane (next to the ? mark) and select preview. Then you can see the whole tool script. You can also right click and then select edit with notepad. Just don't save any change unless you know what you are doing. You can just make a copy to tinker with and save the original. Or for easy fun...try this. Go in to the files folder of the tool, hold the shift key, then right click, select "open command window here" the type "adb" in the window. Up will pop all the adb commands, try typing "moto-fastboot.exe" there is all the fastboot commands. Fun huh! LOL.

    " You will have to reroot after this and the su binary in the tool file is 3.0, the latest is 3.1 so update it in the app. This doesn't wipe any of your data, but if that is want you want then just do so in the stock recovery before you start."

    Whats the importance of this? If we use Voodoo, do we need to worry any further? Or can I just utilize the root for ICS tool?

    Voodoo will not work when going from leak to leak. The backup file is wiped out. Use the tool to root again, works just fine, but installs a earlier binary version. So just update the binary in the superuser app.

    You only need the crc file if you are flashing from the cache in stock recovery. If you have a sd card (external) then just copy the file that is the zip named Blur....6.13.219.....

    Just used this tool to go from .206 to .215 with ease. The whole process took around 40min and the majority of that time was doing the actual update.

    Another satisfied customer here! I was on .208 and had some time yesterday afternoon while waiting for a RAID5 array to build, so I grabbed the tool, followed the docs, and it worked like a champ! Great walkthrough and great tool. Thanks a bunch.

    Okay, so I finally got the tool to download, had to wait for the heavy traffic to die down before I could actually get it to initialize. Phone is currently flashing the newest leak, which is great dancedroid. Honestly, the longest that I had to wait was during the download of the tool and the leak, which I am not complaining! Just gotta wait for it to be finished flashing, then reroot using the tool and I'll be good to go! Thanks again for your time and efforts with the tool, makes flashing a breeze! (Doing the flash the old way from .208 to .213 was definitely a heart dropper, so many steps! LOL)
