    Where are you stuck? I thought from your previous post that you got it to work.

    What version are you on? Did you attempt to fastboot back to .219 after flashing the ics leak??

    Ummmm. 2 or 3 posts down is a method to recover if you messed up the ics install. If your battery dies your screwed. Just so you know. Maybe you should avoid messing with your next one and just wait for the official release.

    This has fully functioning data and camera/video. Plus it has the ability to take still photos while recording video. Someone posted a link to a few videos showing the new options for ICS.

    This is important to note. You should update your su binary prior to backing it up. I lost root in ICS because the su binary I had backed up has a bug of some sort. Something about _mktemp . If you run the superuser app and get the latest su binary, you shouldnt have the problem I have. I am hoping to find a way to get it back. i doubt it, but we shall see :)

    Pretty sure you have to be on 219. But you can try it anyway. Worst thing happens the installation aborts and you stay on 215.

    Just to be sure, since I don't want to end up with a brick, I have CM9 on my phone on a safestrap partition. If I turn off safestrap and restore the main system, then flash the fastboot file, I should be ok, right?

    EDIT: For anyone asking the same question, this is what I did.

    1. Turn off safesystem
    2. Restore original system
    3. Follow steps in http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-4-tech-support/206972-how-restore-your-motorola-droid-4-xt894-stock-windows-only.html
    4. Use the DroidTool to gain root
    5. UPDATE THE SU BINARY
    6. Follow the instructions at the beginning of this thread.

    @op, it might be good to put in the bit about updating the SU binary. I did everything exactly as I was supposed to, and still lost root. This includes root, save root, temp-unroot, root, flash, root. If they don't update the SU binary, they may lose root and be stuck like I am on a stock, unrootable system.

    If I am already on stock Blur_Version.6.13.219.XT894 with no mods is it safe to assume I can unfreeze any frozen apps with Titanium and skip step 1? :icon_eek:

    You can attempt to. If the flash in stock recovery fails it will not hurt your phone. It will give you the cause of the error as well so you may be able to avoid having to fastboot.
