Yea its different every time
If thats the case then i'll just wait for the OTA.
I'm helping as many people as i can, I'm PMing them all, the only issue left is people decided to go hard and upgrade with about 30% battery left, when the OP specifically says NOT to do that. The reason to have good enough battery life is for these cases when we need to AP Fastboot. I think we all get how to AP fastboot for those who have enough battery left. Last problem to solve is the low battery issue. Since you say you don't remember seeing an error, did you just reboot back to GB?
When I started I had 100% battery it took a while to solve the soft brick issue. now I am in desperation mode and RDA is my own personal Jesus Christ right now. Thanks RDA. If you are close to Pittsburgh let me know and I will buy you a case of beer.
100%? And now your battery is too low for AP? lol and reply to the PM so we can further try more things, and is Maryland close enough? =D
I did reboot back to GB. I used the matt utility thing and then followed steps you gave to someone who was stuck at the M dual core screen. I'm up and running on GB and I think i'll keep it that way till the OTA. I don't know when I would see the error message so I don't want to risk ruining anything. Earlier you said that its supposed to fail the first time and to not let it try and reboot and then try the install again. When would you try the second installation? I still want to try again but i'm trying to fight the urge lol.
I hope you didn't take my post about someone helping the other guys as rude. I didn't mean it that way I figured you had your hands full I just felt bad for them cause i've seen them posting on here for hours.
What are you guys trying? I'm still stuck. I'm about to try and take the battery out and try to charge it using a battery charger...
Ya at 10AM this morning it was 100%. Depends on where at in Maryland. I replied to PM. It's still a no go for now, but I trust in your magic. :hail:
Can I use the "go back to stock" guide at the bottom of the op to unroot my phone? Then just follow the instructions to update to ICS?
This is why you would try it a second time:
Other people with older recoveries, the reason they are bricking is their recoveries are old, once you initialize the update, the first thing that happens is the recovery gets overwritten with the new one. Then fails updating the system portion half way through, causing the brick. Many of them don't try to go back into recovery and re-flash it (which would work because they would have new recovery flashed from the first update). They all panic and automatically go to Matt's utility to reflash. If i rewrite everything and put that the FIRST failure is ok, and will occur, right after go back and install it a second time, which would work 100% does that make sense? lol
If it makes sense it means your phone has the "new" recovery to try the update and pass it.
If you really want to, charge your phone 100%, then recovery, wipe cache twice, initialize update from sd and it SHOULD go through no problem. If it fails, you already have fastboot which you did once, so nothing to lose. Hope it works if you try =D
I didn't take it the wrong way, it's fine, i feel the same as you, actually worse that all this is happening =/ , atleast it didn't fail for EVERYONE. If there was a way i would just go around every ones place and update their phones to ICS lol, would be way easier.

DROID RAZR ICS Update Removes “3G Only” Option, Here’s How to Manually Toggle It – Droid Life
1. Open the dialer and type *#*#4636#*#*
2. A menu will appear – choose “Phone information.”
3. Scroll down until you see the pulldown menu for “LTE/CDMA/EvDo/etc.”
4. Tap on that menu and choose “CDMA Auto (PRL).”
4. Hit the back button to get out of these menus and to your home screen.
5. Wait 20-30 seconds and watch your 4G LTE logo turn to 3G.
6. To confirm you are on 3G only, head into System Settings and tap on the “More…” button.
7. Tap “Mobile Networks” and “Network type and strength” to see something like this:
8. Enjoy longer battery life.
Just installed this using the method on one of the previous pages. (let the first one fail, then go back into recovery, clear cache, and install again)
So far its great! 4G was turned off by default and the system was a little slow at the beginning, but its back to normal. I had a Nexus, and this update is as close to stock as you could ask for from Moto.
