Default Bricked Droid 3 Finally Fixed :D

Thank you very much @redsox985 for pointing out were to find the mirror, it worked great ! I finally unbricked my beloved Droid 3 a couple days back, now a new question comes to mind...

Does using this unbrick method would prevent me or whoever in that matter to be able to install a safe strap custom recovery and/or if so, also prevent the installation of a custom rom?

I have tried to install a safe strap recovery from "Codes of Hash" so I can use Darkdroid Rom once again but I have been unsuccessful in that endevour...

Thank you again for taking your time to read this, it is deeply appreciated!

My thought as well. This method returns you to box stock software (5.6.890 OTA)...with no root.

I finally got it working, I will try to describe as best as possible what I did to get it all back to track in hopes that it might actually help somebody else as well, I will make remarks on the software I used and post links to it as well.

First, I used the Unbrick method, that worked great... I can't stress enough how happy I was to see my phone working again.

Second, I rooted my phone using SuperOneClick 2.3.3 from shotfuse.org http://depositfiles.com/files/n0dcxce3t

Third, I changed the settings on the "SuperUser" app to allow root permissions to all requesting apps automatically.

Fourth, I went on the endevour of installing the "Custom Recovery" on my phone by the means of "Safestrap" or "Bootstrap" and I tried several of them but most didn't install anything even by having the root access they would not install the recovery so I kept looking...

Fifth, I finally found my shine of light: "Droid 3 Bootstrapper [TWEAKED]" this did the trick for me, it finally got me to CWM, you can download it from here http://www.mediafire.com/?oiohld4yv3fgfeo

Sixth, I then later installed Rom Manager and successfully installed Hashcode's "CM9 ICS RC0" from the Rom Manager, I have also used it with DarkDroid and it worked perfectly as well...

In any case this reply becomes a violation of XDA's rules I ask the Mods to delete it if not I hope it can help give some bit of insight to other afflicted users of the Droid 3.

I also wish to say thanks to all of you who helped me, I appreciate it deeply :)

PS: I really wanted a debloated Custom Rom, I live in Costa Rica and Verizon's bloatware is more than useless here... now I finally got it... keep up the good work!

Part of your issues with granting root access is that I don't believe Super One Click 2.3.3 works with this phone. If you use PZousa's Root Tool found in a sticky around here somewhere, probably over in development, it will root fine and always grant SuperUser permission.

I confess I have never tried rooting my phone by other means other than SuperOneClick, I will look into it, thanks for the heads up!



*Edit: I used the Unbrick procedure to go back to Stock Firmware, then ran PZousa's Rooting Tool and then I could normally install Hashcode's Safestrap like a charm!

@redsox985 you're the man! thanks!!

very weird you cant install the safestrap from hashcodes..
im glad at least one bootstrap worked for you!!
By the way CM9 from this week! beta 03062012 works very nice on the verizon droid!!

if you use GSM on this D3 you should make some improvements to make your life easier..
in build.prop( can use es file explorer with superuser R/W access in options)
change the network to 3 (which is gsm or 3g auto) and the Dualswitch value to false (dont know if it affects but my d3 isnt changing back to cdma anymore.)

if it is CDMA then it should be working perfectly i guess.

also the only roots i know that works are the psouza4 one click script and the new drioid 4 root method
the psousa4 is here http://psouza4.com/droid3/ also the drivers he post are the ones that worked every time for me ...
cheers
