I also received a Failed to Boot 1 when using the auto-update tool and RSDlite again was the only solution.
Each time I used the pre-unlocked 4.5.91 sbf to fix.
After returning that device, for unrelated issues, I got a brand new, locked, device.
I applied the OTA update before unlocking.
Then I flashed pudding.sbf and got:
SVF message: 105:1:2
Failed to Boot 0x1000
I thought I was done for.
But after trying many different button combos I was somehow able to get to fastboot.
I think it was holding vol up and power while inserting the battery that got me into fastboot.
From there I tried to flash different 4.5.91 partitions starting with boot but it kept failing.
So, I proceeded to finish the unlock by, fastboot oem unlock.
That got me into a bootloop and I was able to reboot into fastboot the normal way where I then installed the stock 4.5.91 system and boot images
I was then able to boot into 4.5.91.
If you get to this point I recommend waiting for a fruitcake or trying out NottachTrix
It was a real pain to get the update flashed and booting, more trouble than it's worth unless you plan on ripping it apart. I believe it's because there were apk patches opposed to full apks. Also boot patches that I think checked for an unlocked bootloader. But I'm not sure about that.
I hope this helps anybody who may find themselves in a similar situation.
IM sure i am getting herre a little late... however. if you are able to get into fastboot mode... you did not hard brick your device.. trust me i know. i have a device right now that has been the same for months... every key combo, 100% charged battery, different laptops and pc's.. this phone with not get past failed to boot screen. also when mine pops up. it shows the failed to boot status and battery too low to flash entering nv flash mode then screen goes blank.
i have tried different batteries,different pc,s and different cables. the only way to get this device back after a hard brick is building a dev cable / jtag for it.Other than that you are soft bricked and easily able to recover by the methods stated above. just an fyi... and no i am not a newb when it comes to this. i have had the phone since it first came out and i was flashing p roms... i know my atrix.
