Hello everyone. First post here, although from time to time I take a look here to see what's going on.
Is now a week without phone. I searched many forums, and Googled a lot, but no luck.

The phone is a Motorola Razr GSM (umts_spyder), XT910. It had installed Safestrap, I don't remember the version.
I tried some roms from time to time, installing them through the Safestrap.
The last one was SlimKat (4.4). I wanted to go back to MIUI V5, which was the one that I liked most of which I had proved, but the Safestrap tell me that the rom can't be installed due to space issues. Then I thought that I should delete some files.
Okey, that's when I make the mistake. Using the Safestrap built in File Manager, I deleted some folders that I thought are not essential. I thought they were remnants of application installations folders and stuff.
And after that, I rebooted the phone, and never woke.

I read guides on installation through fastboot. I can boot the phone in recovery, using -it seems- a factory recovery.
I have already the drivers for my phone from Motorola.
I tried RSD, Odin, and another script and stuff that I found on the web.
All the metods fails at the cdt.bin copy.
According to what I was reading after that, one cannot install an older version of Android from which it was last installed using fastboot.
Is this true?
If so, that means that I need to install a 4.4 fastboot rom on my phone? I can't find any.

Okey, that is the story.
Any advice will be appreciated. Due to my negligence and inexperience, my phone is now a cute ornament.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
Best regards,
Francisco.

Look for a jellybean stock rom for your phone depending on where you got it like us, uk, etc in the development thread
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2231289
flash it using rsdlite......then root it and install safestrap again. This will wipe your internal memory card though

Tx for the reply, david. I read that thread, yes, but seems that I need a Kit Kat fastboot rom, not a Jelly Bean one. When I try to flash one of that, the cdt.bin copy issue appears.

Kitkat fastboot rom doesn't exist,the last official rom for our phones is JB.

Tx for the answer. Well, that is a problem. Is there a way to install a JB fastboot when my last Android was KK?

All KK roms coming with custom (kexec) kernel so that's not the issue.

Try to flash some other JB fastboot file,for different contry.

Ok, I'll try. Are you sure that the cdt.bin file is not a problem with the JB/KK issue?
Anyways I'll try other countries. Tx.
