    How can I do fastboot on a mac? Or is there some way for me to do it on my phone using the stock bootloader? I have the original Droid 4 Utility already.

    Does anyone have the stock build.prop file for .219? I would rather just replace the file I need than go through all the trouble of fastboot and reinstalling everything.

    I think if you use option 2 of jsnweitzel's Droid 4 Utility GB Only that should fix your problem without wiping out apps, settings etc.

    Ok new question: is it possible just to flash a new /system folder onto my droid 4 without fastbooting? Say if I just downloaded ROM Manager and flashed it that way.

    I had the same problem as many others, although - like many others - I did not delete any of the stock apps, just froze them. I suspect Busybox did some changes to the system files, maybe safestrap - who knows.
    After many fruitless attempts I eventually followed the instructions in this thread: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...otorola-droid-4-xt894-stock-windows-only.html , returned to stock and did the update from there with no problem.
    Although it is a pain to start from zero, it also gave me a chance to reconsider, throw out some apps I don't really use... Kinda like spring cleaning :)
    I do have to say: It's feels great to have a squeaky clean system and ICS is clearly worth the effort. Feels as if I have a new phone!

    To all of you experts here on the forum: Many, many thanks for your help, expertise and guidance! Wouldn't know what to do without you guys!!!

    I finally broke down and restored my sytem using the Droid 4 utility, option #2 allows you to restore without deleting user data. A big thanks to all the experts out there who are patient enough to help guide us noobs through the learning process.

    After restoring using the D4 utility I was able to update to ics with no problem and I still had all my apps and data. Loving the ics goodness.

    So the file that stopping me from updating to ICS is /system/bin/logwrapper. How exactly do I fix that?

    If you had previously installed Safestrap, it changed the stock logwrapper to "logwrapper.bin." Go into /system/bin and find the two files that say "logwrapper." Delete the one that says just plain old "logwrapper" and rename "logwrapper.bin" to just "logwrapper."

    Cool thanks but now after updating, my LTE 4G no longer appears and now I can only have 3G...Anyone have this issue?

    ***EDIT*** Turns out a simple restart brought back my 4G haha. Just a heads up to anyone who might experience the problem I had.

    Hey guys, slightly less than a noob here. I am .905 rooted with safestrap and have a custom rom on safeside. The OP says to go to take to OTA update and then move it to SD card-ext, use Voodoo Rootkeeper then blah blahblah... Prob is I did the dl of the OTA update and chose install later but I cant find the /cache folder. Its probably sitting right in front of me but I cant see the forest for the trees. Any advice woudl be greatly appreciated. Thank you all for your contributions into the Droid Hacking/Modding community.

    EDIT: Sorry, I didnt realize this was for the Droid4. I have a Bionic.
