    ***UPDATED: 3/26/2013***

    These fastboot files allow you to recover a bricked device/return to stock Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) on your Motorola Droid 4.

    PRECAUTIONS:
    NEVER FLASH AN SBF FOR AN OLDER ANDROID VERSION THAN THE ONE CURRENTLY ON YOUR DEVICE!
    YOUR DEVICE MUST BE FULLY CHARGED PRIOR TO FLASHING.

    USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.


    If you notice a broken link, please send me a PM and I will fix it ASAP.

    Android 4.1.2 System Version 98.72.18

    9. Once it's finished, select "reboot system now" then immediately press both volume buttons until you see the bootloader menu
    10. Connect your phone to your PC via USB
    11. Use the volume down button to navigate to "AP Fastboot" then use the volume up button to select it
    12. Open RSDLite, press the "..." button at the top, and select the fastboot image .zip file

    To my knowledge no there is not but you are more than welcome to create one from the xda version and the mirrors that are up if youd like.

    Well you guys, while this is downloading so I can make a mirror of it. I think I'm gonna go smoke, workout, nap and then possibly be able to flash it and create the md5 file. I will either rehost it as an (md5&zip)archive or a (md5&zip) regular folder. or have sgmd1 attach it to the OP

    ----
    I'm going to be very upset if daywalker faked the file name for the correct one :/

    ---
    second edit cause this made me happy

    I relearned an old trick i use too have

    This is an important note, mirror #4 for the .219 flash boot and I believe mirror #6 for .215 are 14 day hosts so .215 will expire in 13 days.

    Tried this on my phone and it rebooted into the same thing. I have a rooted phone and I uninstalled a lot of system apps (without thinking) so I wanna restore to stock. Any ideas?

    ****help!!!!

    SO I definitely just tried this and it definitely stopped on 17/18 and it said Flash Failure. And now I can't even get my phone to turn on.

    It says:

    "AP Fastboot Flash Mode (S) (Flash Failure)
    OA.6C
    To return to normal mode -- first press power key to power down (i tried this)
    ****
    Device is LOCKED, Status Code: 0

    Battery Ok
    Ok to Program
    Connect USB
    Data Cable"


    I did what it said to do. Now what do I do?! I tried to go back to the screen where I clicked on AP Fastboot Flash Mode, and I tried clicking on Normal reboot, recovery, and just about every other option available, and nothing worked.

    Someone please help me ! I just got this phone a month ago, and I'm going out of town tomorrow and need to have a working phone!

    What was your battery level before you began the flash? This error seems to happen when phones are in low power mode. If you think it may have been low battery, try the steps here and then try flashing again.
