    Having a leaked ICS update means that an official ICS update that will also activate the GSM radios is also already somewhere in VZ's pipeline, right?

    Hi.

    I am having problems flashing the GSM unlock zip. I tried flashing it from the bootstrap but it says "e:signature verification failed"
    My Droid 4 is rooted with the latest droid utility lite, running stock GB 219 and I have reset the phone to clear all user data.

    I have downloaded many instances of the file but all have failed. Anyone can provide a mirror please?

    Does version of the droid 4 utility matter? I have tried updating busybox with root but ended up with a corrupted busybox and had to reroot the phone.

    Now currently trying to unroot and root using the older full version of droid 4 ultility 0.4. Goo.im giving me headaches by refusing to let me download and keeps on looping the 10 sec wait.

    okay never mind. I just read cellzealot's post that "Yes, the recent ICS leaks for both Razr and D4 enable global mode by default using the same 8 byte string in RF_BC_CONFIG_I that we have been applying to get GSM service working."

    so I will be just skipping the gsm zip and flash ICS directly

    Now running ICS 213 on my Droid 4 and confirmed GSM works on Singapore network!!

    Please update the OP TLDR section to not include the gsm zip flash and un-bold the gsm patch instructions.

    However I ran into another problem of corrupted motorola recovery... doesn't seem to affect phone function so far. I will look around and try to find a solution.

    Did you have to make any edits in the build.prop file or did it work out of the box?

    Quick question.

    I'm US based and going over to UK/France in August. I am rooted and on the .206 ICS leak (stock).

    Could someone tell me exactly what I need to get the global function going on this bad boy?

    Thanks so much.
