    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.

    I have tired this and it is not working out as easy as i thought it would. Im good with everything up until the decompressing i keep getting this message and im not sure on how to get past it.

    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.

    Can someone guide me to get this to work.. Thank you

    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!

    I couldn't get RSD to recognize my phone. So I did some searching and came up with a new version of the drivers. I downloaded this --> MotorolaDeviceManager_2.2.28 right from Motorola (USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA). After installing my phone was finally recognized.

    Just thought I would add this in case others were having trouble getting their phones recognized.

    Help

    Stupid me, yesterday I tried flashing the unofficial CM10 ROM from gingerbread, and bricked my phone hardcore. None of these are helping me restore my phone. I was flashing from gingerbread to JB. Used safe strap, and everything. But I think that I forgot to do a nandroid backup. So basically the Gingerbread fastboots will not work and the one for the ICS fastboot will not work either. I have all the latest drivers and RSD 5.3.1 whenever i try to unzip and flash one for the files I get a SDL error message saying, XML format is wrong or image files associated with it are missing. And my phone says in the fast boot menu that it is locked, code 0 :cus:

    I was thinking that I could try and flash an ICS rom and then fastboot the ICS package to restore it, will this work?
    Any ideas? (maybe I should make a new thread)

    This 12th step is driving me nutz! I'm stuck at this step, because I can't find that famous "fastboot image .zip file"!

    I was, however, able to decompress something similar, this:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\Downloads\VRZ_XT894_6.7.2-180_DR4-16_M2-37_1FF.xml (1).zip

    But that didn't do the trick. After rebooting I notice I still haven't been able to fully restore. (I'm trying to get rid of the SU app, but it just won't go!)

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    I ignore how you can tell whether your phone is recognized by RSD, but I'll download that, see if it helps me.

    Thanks!
