    Help! Did I just brick my friend's Bionic?
    I just flashed my Bionic with 2233 and it worked perfectly. I tried it with the same file on my friend's 100% stock OTA. Bionic.

    When I selected [COLOR=blue !important][FONT=inherit !important][COLOR=blue !important][FONT=inherit !important]reboot[/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR] from recovery I got


    AP Fastboot Flash Mode (s) (Boot Failure)

    0A.71

    Invalid CG OTV (CG: webtop): Invalid SP Data
    Invalid CG HAB (CG: webtop, status: 0X004E)
    Invalid CG OTV (CG: webtop)

    I can't get past this screen. I'm a relative noob and have no idea what to do next.

    Bbucks thanks so much for the reply! I checked the link and wasn't able to get the zip file. Clicked through to the original post and it was removed. The link in the repost points to a dead end.

    I'll check the second method right now.

    Once I get into the boot mode selection menu, my choices are normal powerup, recovery, ap fastboot, bp sbf flash, bp only, bp hw diag & boot ap, bp tools. They all take me to the same ap fastboot flash mode screen. It doesn't seem like I can do anything from the phone, just plug in via USB and use RSD lite?

    I just used that and tried to flash back to 902 with no luck. The flash failed in RSD. :-(
    Thanks for any insight you can offer.

    I have not been able to clear the boot error. I cant get past it frkm the phone, so i have been using RSD and House OF Bionic to try to flash back to 902 or 905. Tried to go forward to 2233. Nothing works.

    I have a full battery and an OEM data cable. I'm wracking my brain and the only thing i can think of that may have done wrong is I didn't make sure he was updated to 905. I thought that has been out OTA for so long that everybody had it. Would that cause this problem?

    I tried the cdt fix, and it fails. It says FAILED <data transfer failure <Unknown error>>

    Could I have a problem with drivers? I've installed the latest Motorola device manager and Moto helper. Yet, when I plug in the dead Bionic, I get a message in the taskbar that says unable to connect to the smartphone, unplug and try again. I do the the happy USB sound and I do see "USB Connected" on the dead Bionic in Fastboot.

    Here's where I show what a noob I truly am. How do you do a full version of FXZ? What I was doing in RSC isn't full?

    Many many thanks for your advice! I really appreciate it.

    I have this same issue. I can't get the FXZ to load. Any I messed with it so long my battery is low, and I don't think it charges. I thought I knew what I was doing, but apparently I'm still a noob.

    You need to charge your battery. Few options: 1. Find someone with a bionic that will let you charge your battery in their phone.
    2. Go to verizon and see if they can charge your phone. They may have an external charger.
    3. Buy an extra battery (they usually come with enough charge to restore your phone).
    4. Buy an external battery charger.
    5. buy a motorola factory flash cable. This type of cable has a different pin out and has the +5v on pin 1 which bypasses the battery and powers the device directly even without a battery inserted at all. here is a link... http://shop.teamblackhat.info/
