    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.
