Exactly what happened to me.. I sent it over to my ISP and they fixed it..

I couldn't even get to recovery menu or AP fastboot. It was soft bricked so hard it only showed the motorola logo and then the safestrap upper screen for brief second before shutting down.

Do not install 3.73 or later version since they are broken and will brick your phone eventually.. this has happened 3 times already.

Can you get to fastboot? (Powerkey + volume up + volume down)

If so, you can use RSD lite and unbrick the device. I couldn't get there due safestrap flashing it's upper screen for second before shutdown signal though..

Edit: got into fastboot and used the updated version of matts util alls good again.

bricked RAZR XT910
Hi Guys,

Bricked my device trying to root it & add CMW
Tried factory wipe & reset but still no good.

Anyways, tried RSDlite 6.1.5 & appropriate ROMs from OPTUS but they get stuck @ "cdt.bin_signed " failed (step 6)
Apparently, there is a manual way of doing this
see http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2483999
but can't find webtop signed
also 01.6.5.1-73 & 80 for Australia doesn't exist

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated?

Thanks
Jen
