Hey guys. A friend of mine gave me a Motorola Droid RAZR XT912 which woudln't work with GSM networks to make it work. So I went here and used DROID RAZR Utility XT912 Jellybean to gain root. After that I installed Safestrap 3.73 and flashed CM11 M9 into the Slot1. The phone was working completely fine without a single hitch.

Today my friend called me to ask about the phone and I said it's working only it has two systems (lots of not really good used memory). He said to me to remove one of them and I went back into Safestrap recovery and activated Stock. Then I wiped Dalvik cache, cache, system, android secure. After that I switched to Slot1 (CM11) and it said it was active. I thought it would work since there is still that CM11 in Slot1, right? I tapped reboot -> system and since then the phone won't boot. When I press and hold the Power button for about 7-8 seconds, Motorola logo is shown and after that only a black screen (phone turned off). I tried holding Power+VOLDN but sadly same results. I know I should have read more about removing stock, but I did it anyway. Everything was going so smoothly so I thought there wouldn't be any problems. I think I should point out that when I connect the phone to my laptop, I can see "Mot Composited ADB Interface". Does this mean the phone is not dead?

Is there a way to unbrick the phone without some special cables and/or equipment?

Thanks.

@mikeoswego Thanks. I actually managed to get it working a little before this post using that amazing piece of software.

The state of the phone was like this: I hold the Power button, Motorola logo pops up and then the phone turns off. I hold Power+VOLDN same thing happens (Logo is shown and then it turns off). I couldn't even get it to fast boot. It just turned off. I searched a bit here and found the solution. When the logo is shown, press and hold VOLUP+VOLDN and don't let go. The menu will be shown where you can select fastboot. After that I just connected the phone to my laptop, used matts program and resurrected the phone

I lost root, so I rooted again, installed safestrap, wiped Stock and in it's place installed CM11. Rom1 was still occupied by old CM11 install so I deleted that. Installed the GSM patch and now the phone works as a charm.

So many thanks to this great community. I usually don't post at all. I use the search function and just follow the steps, but I panicked a bit today. Sorry.

Thread can be closed.
