    Ok, so we're talking about a custom ROM on a D4. We may have someone I the RS team that can help but it might be better if this post were in the D4 hacks section, or if we have a devoted section for that ROM developer. I'll look.

    Well, looks like your best bet for an answer is the D4 ROMs section. I'll move this thread there.

    Let's see what we can do here.

    What recovery are you using? Safestrap? What version?

    Is your stock slot still untouched or did you install eclipse over your stock system?

    Ouch. That's typically a no no.

    Let me see what options we have. Do you have any nandroid backups of your stock system and/or can you still boot up eclipse and use it (for the most part)?

    What were the steps you used? I had to fastboot my phone twice before I FINALLY GAVE UP.

    If you have a nandroid backup of your stock system, restore that on your stock slot. If you don't, I posted one at the end of this thread here:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=200752

    Should be able to put it in the backup location of your sdcard "TWRP/backups/" and use it. The fellow from that thread didn't reply so I don't know if it works.

    Alternately, yes. You will need to sbf back to stock. Boot up whatever is in your stock slot, reinstall the safestrap app so that you can uninstall the recovery. You'll need the official ICS sbf file. You can find it in Hash's directory at:
    Goo.im/devs/Hashcode/maserati

    Follow the steps for fastbooting here:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=206972
    Just ignore the part where it tells you to use a Gingerbread sbf file. That'll result in a brick. Don't forget to factory reset or you'll most likely get a bootloop.

    Good luck.

    Ok.... I have tried all of the steps above. While on the RSD step and the fastboot is flashing it gets to 6/18 and returns error "Failed Flashing process. 6/18 flash cdt.bin "cdt.bin" -> Phone returned fail." Now my phone will not get out of AP fast boot mode.

    Make sure you have the latest motorola usb drivers, redownload the sbf file or get it from another source, or check google. I'll let you know what I find.

    Power off your phone until you find a solution, DO NOT LET THE BATTERY DIE

    I got that error when messing with my droid 3. I don't think there is a clear cut solution. Again, make sure you have the latest drivers and perhaps trying to get the sbf file from a different source, sometimes bad downloads will break it or something.

    Given that the droid 4 doesn't have a removable battery, make sure you have a full charge before attempting anything else.

    Did you make sure to uninstall safestrap completely? Try different usb ports and the official cable your phone came with.

    I was messing with a Droid 2 global last night and EzSBF wouldn't recognize the sucker unless it was plugged into a certain port, so sometimes stuff like that matters

    Running out of ideas. There's an ICS specific utility program for the D4 that includes sbf flashing I think. Check it out here:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=217255

    The people over in the Bionic section struggled with this, but someone made a script specifically for the bionic to fix it. Other people recommended restarting the pc and trying again. I just don't know.

    Here is a thought..... would these files work for a safe strap flash of the stock rom slot?

    No. Sbf files are not installable like roms. You could try downloading my stock backup I linked to a few posts back and try restoring that to your stock slot through safestrap. I used version 3.11
