    What I remember of jumping leak to leak it flashes 219, 217 kernel, then 217, so it is not flashing the same things .

    it's worth a try, nothing else worked.

    believe me you run the unstuck ics to flash the kernal and the sbf will work then. follow my guide http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-4-roms/212634-simplified-ics-6-16-217-update-guide.html



    hints/tips
    to enter fastboot hold down power and both vol keys, when menu appears use vol- to scroll and vol+ to select
    to reset phone hold power and vol- for like 4 seconds

    0 factory reset, to do this hold down power and both vol keys, when menu appears use vol- to scroll and vol+ to select recovery
    1 Download everything (remember to uninstall safestrap before you start and to charge up your battery as well!)
    2 Fastboot install 219 with restore tool or sbf file(erase data for best results... i know this sounds wrong)
    3 use unstickics tool and fastboot install kernel with 217 (let it reboot once when done)
    4 install 217 via sdcard, if that wont work sbf it

    then skip that step
    install moto drivers
    enter fastboot hold down power and both vol keys, when menu appears use vol- to scroll and vol+ to select fastboot
    fastboot 219 with this and this use option 1 which will delete your data (dont use rsd ) heres the thread for that tool http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-4-hacks/212307-droid-4-utility-updated.html
    fastboot 217 kern with unstuckics
    fastboot 217 with rsd

    With the tool fails in the same steps but finish like rsd. When the phone boot appear directly in fastboot fail and some CG errors, Webtop, etc. The unstuck tool erase the Fasboot error but the same errors in CG.

    OK I'm trying to follow this so I can try again to fix my old phone.

    How do you flash to 219 (GB) when you're already running 217 (ICS). The most current version of the ICS update tool (options 11 and 12) doesn't give you the option for 219 (GB). I'm willing to flash back to this and then use Unstick ICS but I need you to explain how to get 219 on there first. Thanks in advance.

    Well assuming the only way to flash 219 was to put the 219 files in the files folder in the ICS Utility tool folder, then this still doesn't work. I flashed 219 (not without a couple errors) I unstuck with UnstickICS to 217 kernel. Then I installed 217 via the SD card. Still no dice. Same old result. Successful install and black screen after the motologo.
