I was trying to install Cyanogenmod on my razr m running rooted and unlocked 4.4.2 and used flashify to build a flash que of cm stable build dated 7/8/14 and Gapps. Decided against using flashify and booted into recovery without clearing the que in flashify first (assumed it wouldnt actually do anything until i pressed a button... but apparently it actually built a que that twrp used when it booted and this resulted in bootloop. I managed to get into recovery and did a full wipe/reset. then installed same rom and apps again. Bootloop. I've tried using adb to push the cm 8/23/14 nightly build but it doesnt seem to be working. also tried flashing stock 4.4.2 boot.img out of curiosity but got an error "no boot partition found" is there anything i can do to fix this? or am i stuck buying a new phone with a good year left on my existing contract?

Just grab the stock 4.4.2 firmware from here and then grab rsd lite (google it) and use it to flash stock... Let us know if you have any errors and we'll address them...

What do you mean it didn't recognize the device? Like is the start button grayed out as if its not plugged in or like all the status's say n/a? Do you need further assistance with it or is you phone up n running? We are more then willing to help...

Okay I got the replacement phone and have it rooted. Over this weekend I plan on unlocking the bootloader and having another go at CM
