Here is the complete list, maybe one of these will look familiar.
Does anyone use this forum? if so, when im in fastboot mode, just type number one after unzipping the file and everything should do its thing, after the update i can OTA ICS no problem?
Welcome to the forum silentgun, in theory yes those are the steps to do it. Are you running into problems?
Thank you for answering! and no i have not done anything to my phone... yet. Just did the root and changing of the starting animation, apparently flashed a theme too, and changed the back round to the slide down screen. I was reading about bloatware or something that had to be deleted? and if this isntal thing goes wrong, is there any chance of my phone getting bricked?
There is always a chance you can brick your phone, that is why you need to be careful and make sure you know what you are doing.
If you check that list it will tell you everything you can freeze and still have the phone functional, however never remove or delete anything freeze or disable only.
I understand anything could happen when i do stuff to the phone, but if run this program without doing anything to the bloatware, then is there a good chance of it getting bricked? After i run ICS im not doing any more roots to avoid this problem again. I just want to get ics OTA and call it a day. problem is not bricking my phone along the way. So, assuming just things i said were done to the phone, then is there a good chance of it not getting bricked?
any ideas? or will this program write over everything no matter what i did to the phone.
Are you asking if this app will help you get back to stock? I.don't think they understand your question.

Yes that is my basic question along with the fear of bricking the phone while using it.
If you are on Gingerbread right now then yes this utility will get you back to stock .181.
As far as this utility bricking your phone, that is a no. You using the utility improperly that will brick the phone, follow instructions and you will be fine.
If you use RazrUtility 1.6 option 1 it will restore your phone to .181. It will return you phone to stock...just like you got it out of the box brand new. If you have deleted any apps it WILL NOT replace what you have deleted (apps or bloatware). If you have delete any apps that you had to have root to delete then you will have to replace those apps APK before being able to get the OTA update from .181 to ICS. Apps that you deleted that did not require root do not have to be replaced. Running this utility will not brick your phone. As long as you can get into AP Fastboot and able to select option 1 you will be just fine. Hope this answers your questions.
I just used Matt's utility to sbf and clean install .181 (same version I was on previously).
Once completed, the phone booted to the M logo, showed Andy with a cereal box, installed a package (status bar filled with orange), then rebooted and won't proceed past M logo.
I force shutdown and go into recovery, and select Wipe Cache - and the phone does nothing.
I then thought it may be the download, so I downloaded the SBF and used RSD lite and tried again... no luck.
Any help is appreciated.. I'm really stumped here.. Kinda up creek without a paddle... and a phone.
So after re-flashing 8 times, I've been able to at least get to the "welcome" screen to begin android setup.. I am then greeted with the following errors:
"The application IMSCServer (process com.motorola.android.server.ims) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."
"The process com.motorola.service.main has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."
"The application Smart Actions (process com.motorola.contextual.smartrules) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."
I'm sure there are more stacked underneath, but every time I hit force close, a new one pops up or repeats itself... It appears to be flashing incorrectly every time I fastboot which is causing the errors... I've been able to clear the cache and data/factory reset in recovery, but the errors won't go away.
After fiddling with the force closes for about 2 minutes after the phone boots, it freezes.
Anyone have any ideas on a an alternative way to ensure a clean flash?
Hey, so I kinda figured this wouldn't work in my case, tried it anyway, and bricked my phone.
I was running the Jelly Bean update that came out over christmas and tried to go back to gingerbread, terrible idea.
The following Image is what I recieved, it wasn't able to write the boot process or some of the other stuff, anyone know of any way to fix it?

Phone now shows motorola logo, then blank black screen, the screen is on, but black. I am able to get to the menu with power and up and down volume keys, but that's it as far as I know.
I would also like to add that this is not the developer's fault, it is mine for using it in a way it was not intended to be.
UPDATE: Nevermind, found help for my problem here http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...ricked-after-reverting-jelly-bean-update.html
