    was on page plus and the jb update came in and my bad, i updated. wiped page plus off and had to reflash. that is what started this:
    think i might have bricked the phone

    started flashing phone, phone cut off and back on then cut off and never came back on. think i have turned into a brick. any help, thanks. droid razer utility 1.82, ap fastboot mode

    ok guys, i can push in vol up and down then connect data cable from computer to phone and the green data light will come on. any help will do.

    i posted to general, but no response, figure i would try here, thanks:frown:

    1. Download and install RSDLite.
    2. Download and install the latest Motorola USB Drivers.
    3. Download the official jb sbf file and unzip it.
    4. Power off your phone and power it on while doing the following:
    5. Hold the volume up, volume down, and power buttons at the same time until you see the bootloader menu
    6. Use the volume down button to navigate to "Recovery" then use the volume up button to select it
    7. When you see the android/triangle, press both volume buttons together
    8. Select "wipe data/factory reset" and on the next screen select "Yes -- delete all user data"
    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
    13. Select "Decompress And Start Flashing" and wait for the process to finish (it will take around 20-30 minutes)

    outerbanker1, if it makes you feel any better I'm in the same boat as you. I had upgraded to JB and rooted with the RAZR utility through Windows 7 64-bit just fine. The one problem was that because I had swapped the partitions to make the phone treat the external SD card like the internal memory and vice versa (running on stock, no ROM), the phone couldn't read either now. I decided to do a factory reset and that didn't fix it. So then I tried to reflash JB with the RAZR utility again. However this time I did it from Linux (Ubuntu 64-bit). It failed while flashing the bootloader (I believe) and wouldn't turn on ever again. I don't even get the green light when I plug it in - nothing. I'm still under warranty, so I'm just replacing it through Verizon. The replacement should be here tomorrow.

    Myfishbear, I assume a "jtag repair place" would be able to re-flash the phone without going through the USB port, right? What is required to do that? Any special hardware/software? Are there any guides out there for this?
