    I've got a droid razr m xt907. Recently it suddenly wouldn't boot. I tried flashing it using house of moto. At that point I didn't realize that it was an xt907 - I only knew it as a droid razr m. Unfortunately, the instructions for the house of moto said that if you have an xt907 you have to overwrite files in the tools folder with other files (that they supplied). I din't do that and now the phone will only go to fastboot.

    When I try to flash it with the latest kitkat (15.1) using rsdlite, it gives the error that it failed on gpt.bin

    Almost everyone tells me there's no way to fix it.

    Would appreciate if anyone knows a way.

    The good news is that it's not hard bricked because it's powering on. It's only hard bricked when the device will no longer power on.

    Secondly, you should probably address this issue with XDA. While we have basic Android experience here, they are more device specific and could further assist you.

    It sounds like your using Windows 8 or 10. I have found that RsdLite does not like these operating systems as well as you REALLY need to make sure that your running as administrator. If you have the full XML, I might be able to help you out! :)

    P.S. The best thing is to perform this operation on Windows 7. Message me on hangouts or here and I can try to help

    Thanks.

    I've got windows 7 pro x64

    I don't mind talking here. I have a thread at xda (hard bricked help) and had been talking to the people at droidrzr.com who developed the House of Moto.

    I will try flashing from the admin account.

    The rsd version is 6.2.4. My understanding is that if you have the 15.1 version of kitkat that you can't downgrade to jellybean or you get a bricked phone. I'm pretty sure I had the 15.1 version cause I think the phone was updating automatically.

    First..make sure you install the newest Moto helper for your device:

    http://www.motorola.com/getmdmwin

    Then download this image file:

    http://firmware.center/firmware/Mot...VZW_XT907_4.4.2-KDA20.62-15.1_CFC_1FF.xml.zip

    NOW...click on the downloaded.zip file and select properties. Then look in the bottom of the window to "UNBLOCK" the file. Hit apply, then "OK"

    Right-Click on the .zip file, then select extract files.

    NOW, make sure your running RsdLite as an Administrator:

    (Just Right-Click on the RsdLite Program, then select "Run as Administrator") [A Window should pop up asking to allow the action.]

    Then select the "image file.xml"

    I think you know the rest of this! :)

    Try uninstalling the RSDLite, and download the 6.1.5 version and install. I think it doesn't like your older device. Then try flashing again with that package

    The 6.1.5 version of rsdlite is saying "failed flashing process - unknown fastboot command"

    What did the error say in the screen of the device? Also, your booting the device into AP fastboot right?

    Maybe try following these directions...
