    This just definitely bricked my phone.

    Did option 1 to get a fresh install of ICS, and it says "failed unknown error" on everything from writing the system onward. Now I am stuck at the fastboot screen with no operating system.... Not pleased. No information on here or google about this particular issue. Phone was stock and rooted....

    Interesting. If you were already on ics i can't imagine what caused that. The utility is sound. But you can download rsd lite and then the ics xml file and flash that way.

    Oh, now this is great..just finished setting up the phone from being wiped and now every time I reboot the device it boots into fastboot and says "flash failure". I have to go into the recovery again and boot up normally. Is there any way to stop this, or is sideloading .211 my only option?

    That will continue to happen because the bootloader failed to flash i believe. The only fix is to flash the 211 fastboot files entirely. You can try the utility again or use rsd lite.

    I tend to use rsd more for fresh installs even though the utility works fine.....usually.

    Not sure it is fair to say the Razr Utility messed up your phone, plenty other people have used it with no issue. There could be any number of environmental factors that caused whatever happened to happen.

    Utility basically takes commonly practiced procedures and makes them easier for some that might not have experience doing it the long way. There isn't too much that could go wrong when steps are followed correctly.

    Was not meaning you did, was saying not sure what could have gone wrong because the list is pretty small. Fastboot with RSD should get you working though, make sure you are using the factory USB cable that came with your phone.

    Ah my mistake. Going to give it a shot when I get home from work.

    Also do you or anyone else notice a slight lag in ICS, especially during 3d gaming?
