    It won't find the FXZ or it won't use the file after you point RSD Lite to it?

    Do you have RSDLite 5.5 or better? The lower versions can't find the FXZ format.

    What are you trying to do?Just going back to stock and reroot?or trying to flash your kernel-webtop and baseband?If you have a latest kernel you will fail using RSD unless if you're still in 5.886 kernel...afaik..

    Here is a method I used with success in a similar situation. It's very effective if you have any experience working in the command window.

    he first step actually flashes in 6 parts, not four, that could be due to the differences from Windows 7 and XP Pro.
