    Ok, to respond to my own post-script since I can no longer edit my old post, it seems that the longest steps are 16 and 17 (preinstall and webtop). The ones before that seem to fly by. The last one is just rebooting.

    Also, one other thing I noticed is that after my phone failed the first time and I got the factory cable to re-flash, the process kept getting stuck at the same spot the failed flash stopped at when the computer went to sleep. It was stopping every time for me at step 12. I let the phone and computer sit for about 2 hours and it was at the same spot the whole time. Nothing was frozen however because all applications showed activity and progress, but nothing was happening. So I grabbed the other xml file (v.215) and flashed that over. That one completed successfully and I was able to get into the OS and everything. So, completing that, I went and retried v.219. It hung for a couple of minutes on step 12 again but then continued successfully.

    So, in conclusion, if your flash freezes and continually fails to make progress on multiple attempts, try flashing with a different version.

    Props to verizon for putting two holes for wires into the battery so we could externally charge it, with a label too! Yeah All the steps and then some, I made sure to use a usb cable go figure they were in short supply this time.


    So, in conclusion, if your flash freezes and continually fails to make progress on multiple attempts, try flashing with a different version.

    Thank you, SGMD1

    Hey there, SGMD1, = )

    I just wanted to say thanks for these super useful ups and for including the great instructions as well. Within just 3 hours of picking up my Droid 4, I used Dan Rosenberg's Motofail to root. At the time, I was so excited about it that I failed to consider how I would undo it in the event I needed warranty service which is now the case. Thanks again!

    peace, = )

    There is no better feeling than that one you get when you see the little android popping out of the box show up on your screen after you did something stupid. Thank you very much. BTW, this works at 60% battery.

    How can I sbf to .219 on a mac? I installed Busybox on my phone, which edited some /system files so I have to fastboot. I don't have access to a Windows machine nor Linux. PLEASE HELP!! I'm rooted, uninstalled Safestrap, and the root is protected via the rootkeeper we all know about.

    Error!!!!!
    Failed to create allow-mbmloader-flashing-mbm.bin
    Please check if the file path is too long to create or if there is enough free disk space.

    Just to let you guys know, I was able to lay my hands on a Windows computer and fix my phone! I had to make a Motorola factory cable to do the flashing b/c my phone ran out of power, but it's all good now and I love my phone all over again! Thanks to everyone who helped me out!
