    Did you try using rsd lite to flash 902?

    Do you have the latest moto drivers on your computer? USB debugging checked?

    How old is your pc?
    What drivers do you have installed?

    Well rsd is starting 100% fresh. But you need to get the computer to recognize your phone first. Are you using a motorola USB cord? Try rebooting the computer?

    Man. You've got me. If you plug the phone up to the computer like your going to transfer files or something does it show the stuff on your sdcard? Just trying to see if its rsd issue or phone/computer issue...

    You may have to moto-fastboot the 902 images, if rsdlite keeps failing.

    Sure. Make sure you have a full battery charge before proceeding.
    1. Download and unzip the 902 fxz. Place it on desktop in 1 folder.
    2. start RSDLite 5.6
    3. turn phone off and turn back on by pressing and holding the volume down and power button at the same time on the phone. You should be in AP fastboot menu now.
    4. plug your phone into your pc with the cable that came with the phone.
    5. In RSDlite, click on "..." symbol.
    6. Find the 5.9.902 file and select that file.
    7. On the next pop up, select uncompress and start flashing.
    8. Let the program run completely and your phone will reboot a few times.
    9. In the end, you should end up with the green android guy to log into google.
