    After putting phone into fastboot and opening rsd lite port 1 says connected then i select the file and hit decompress and flash. At the end of the decompression i get the error below and hit doesnt flash. Any help would be appreciated. What am i doing wrong? I have downloaded the fastboot file 3 different times from different locations.

    ERROR:
    PLEASE CHECK INPUT FILE. EITHER XML FORMAT IS WRONG OR IMAGE FILES ASSOCIATED WITH IT ARE MISSING.

    Edit: used different pc and worked fine.

    Worked Perfectly. Thanks!

    I must've screwed something up after getting my Droid 4 and rooting and then removing all the crap I didn't want because I was no longer able to get the automatic update to come to my phone. This solved that problem.

    I get to the point where you use RSD lite and It will never pick up my device. It is connected via USB and is sitting in AP fastboot mode. It says "Ok to program" connected Via USB. RSD lite never picks up the device though so the decompress and flash options stays grey. Any help?

    You installed the USB drivers, correct? Try running RSDLite as an administrator as well

    Also make sure you are you using the USB cable that came with your phone. Third party USB cables sometimes will not work for this.

    You'll have to contact someone at droidhive.com and request that they put the file back up...I'm not affiliated with that site

    Quick question using this method. Do I need to uninstall safestrap before I try to run the process? I somehow bootlooped just now, and I used the D4 Utility Tool to supposedly unroot my phone. However, it still boots into safestrap recovery, and it wouldn't let me boot into normal recovery mode. When I hit the search button to boot into recovery, is when it bootlooped.

    So, I was wondering if uninstalling safestrap would let me boot into normal recovery mode without bootlooping again.


    edit: nvm, I don't think I was fully holding down both volume buttons. I got it working, and flash worked the first time. Thanks for the guide, much appreciated.

    anoopch, i can rehost it but you'd get the entire eternity flash project folder, I no longer have the archive of .219 on this machine or my desktop, so the md5 wont match up.

    First time here, hoping someone can help me out. My phone started being very screwy a few weeks ago; it stops opening apps after a little while of being on, crashes apps I have open, and has to be rebooted for anything to start working again, and any changes I made (updates, install/uninstall apps, calls in my recent call logs, etc...) are not there anymore, it's all going back to a previous version. So, I want to wipe my phone and start over, but default factory restore doesn't work, and when I try these instructions, I get an error in RSD.

    I've got version 219, downloaded the correct .zip file and follow instructions until I get to load the zip file and get to step 13 ("Decompress And Start Flashing") and receive error message on step 3/18;
    Failed flashing process. 3/18 flash mbmloader "mbmloader.bin" -> Phone returned FAIL.

    When you click on it so it will show Device Properties, it shows:
    ESN: N/A
    Technology: N/A
    Software Version: N/A
    Flex Version: N/A
    Bootloader Version: N/A
    DRM Version: N/A

    File Properties shows;
    Filename: VRZ_XT894_6.5.1-167_DR4-1_M1-219_1FF_01.xml
    Creation Date: 03/09/2012 01:44:28
    File size: 2082
    Software Version: 6.5.1-167_DR4-1_M1-219
    For Phone Model: MASERATI


    Thank you for whatever help I can get.

    Anyone have the applications required to do this process in Linux? I had the required apps for my D2, but not the D4.

    The first time I tried this, I came into my Windows partition and had it going just fine. It was late after work (like 3am when I started) so I fell asleep waiting for it to finish. When I woke up a about an hour or 2 later, Windows had decided to put my computer to sleep at some point in time and hosed the flash. Because it was sitting there so long the phone battery died and I had to order a Factory Cable just to be able to attempt to fix it again. I'd like to be able to do this in my native environment instead of having to switch OSes every time. Thanks!

    PS: Also, anyone know which step in the process takes the longest? I know it's supposed to take 30 - 40 mins, but mine flies through steps 1 - 11 then sits at 12 for a VERY long time. Is this normal?
