    I ran Minimal FXZ to restore my bionic and everytime it fails at 4/5. I power up phone and and it goes directly to Fast Boot Flash mode (Flash Fail) and I have to hold the volume buttons and power then use the normal power up. When I go to about phone it has original programming. Wondering if anyone else has had this happen. Im new to this and the guy who rooted it for me is unavailable. Any sugestions? Thanks

    Need some more info on your issue....

    You are rooted, did you run a custom rom?

    Did you delete any apps or freeze any apps (E.G. blockbuster, amazon mp3)?

    When you rooted did you use a developer's custom kernal? If so, since using the kernal have you replaced it with the stock kernal before attempting to root?

    I ask these questions because they will help in determining where the issue is occurring...

    It was rooted with Petes one click root and i did the upgrade to 5.893 and lost root acess but super user was still on phone. Tried to use petes to un root without sucess. Didnt delete apps or use custom rom. Only wanted root for hotspot. Sending back for warranty replacment now. I keep seeing posts about backing up and not sure what that means. I have 3 days to figure this out.

    if you're returning it you might be in trouble.
    rooting/flashing unsupported ROM's *can* void your warranty.

    they dont always check for these things, but dont be surprised if you have a charge for full retail for the replacement they're sending you.

    Back to factory

    Do you still have a copy of the file you used to go back to factory. Droid theory is no longer allowing people to use it. I have 5 days.

    Do you have newest Motorola drivers installed ? Also make sure you are using data cable that came with phone. I had a problem cause I used cable that came with my Droid 4 change to one that came with bionic and it worked perfectly. http://droidmodderx.com/bionic/bionic-files-official-ota-files-fxz-files-root-files-ect/ . This is link I pulled my fxz file from. Hope this helps you
