    The short story is that my phone is stuck in fastboot mode giving me an (invalid CDT/invalid CG Version CG: cdt).

    The long story: Managed to get to 5.9.901 (via 5.5.886) using the BionicPathSaver one click method P3Droid posted in mydroidworld, however I lost the 43V3R root I had previously applied. The phone was full of bloatware I decided to repeat the process and reflash 5.5.886 and 43V3R root at that stage and then upgrade to 5.9.901 again.

    After repeating the entire process and flashing the 5.5.886 update the phone got stuck in fastboot mode. It was suggested to me that I download an alleged fix to keep root and flash the moto-fastboot executable file included in P3Droid's forum by typing "moto-fastboot flash cdt.bin cdt.901" in a command prompt at the BionicPathSaver directory the executables (and extracted files are located). Unfortunately my command prompt does not understand the "moto-fastboot" command (or the version saying moto-fastboot.exe).

    Attempts to restore the bootloader using the R3L3AS3D and 43V3R root or Motorola's RSDLite/FXZ files have failed because of the "cdt.bin" file.

    So 4 hours later I'm stuck without a phone. Any ideas?

    Thanks a lot!

    after it flashes the cdt.bin, just disconnect your phone and try rebooting

    I have now tested the script I posted and can verify that it does flash the cdt.bin properly and fixes the invalid CDT errors and your Bionic will then boot up properly to stock 5.5.893 OTA... cheers...

    Just wanted to let those who experienced the invalid CDT errors that the standalone FixCDT script above works fine, and is a lot easier....just FYI

    Thanks a lot, but a re-installation of P3Droid's 1-click root and realbbb's root fix allowed me to push the script from the command mode. Another error I had made was that finding the actual directory to run the script from, P3Droid's zipped file resulted in two identically named "BionicPathSaver" folders one inside the other. Wasted about 4 hours to realize that I needed to be in the second directory.

    Anyhow, phone booted normally on 5.5.893 with all the bloatware and cannot 43V3R root now, at least not using options 2 or 3. Any ideas? Do I need to revert to stock 5.5..886 and then root? ugh!!!!

    I'm glad this was sorted one way or another, so thanks a lot!

    THANKS! Worked awesome! I was in the same boat compiled by a dead battery that I had to charge with stripped wires. I know that's risky but it worked too. Now to see if I can get the phone where I was trying to in the first place. Thanks again :)

    Holy no more fastboot, Batman. I've spent about 24 hours over the past 4 days trying to fix this. Awesome! Now I can try to update to .902, then ICS. Thanks!
