Hello,

2. flashing "1FF-olympus_emara-user-2.3.4-4.5.2A-74_OLE-31.20-release-keys-signed-NonEFIGSRetail-EU" the only that works -> not unlockable with the unlock.sbf
3. flashing "1FF-olympus_emara-user-2.3.4-4.5.2A-74_OLE-31-release-keys-signed-rtdach.sbf" -> installation aborted

Default installing recovery

Hi, thanks for all the good tips how to unlock etc.
I think I have managed to unlock my device (at least that displayed in the top left corner) and then tried the recovery part (with fastboot and moto-fastboot). However, when in Android recovery mode I only get the guy and !. I was able to rename the install recovery in systems/etc/install.. but not in etc/install (no permission). Thanks for your support.

My phone: (45.31.2 MB860.T-Mobile en GB), Android 2.3.4, Kernel 2.6.32.9, Build4.5.2A-74_OLE-31.2

You need to delete them with a file manager that has root access. The phone must be rooted and then you can use the file manager as root user to delete them.

I was having the same issue.
Delete those files with root access and then flash over CWM again and it should work fine.

Worked perfectly for me on my fully updated Bell stock 2.3.6.

Just wanted to point out a few FYI's that may help those of us that are skittish

9. If nothing is happening after 10mins, perform a battery pull. Power the phone on while pressing vol-down. “Fastboot” Will show up on screen. DONT PLUG IT IN YET. Press volume up and let your phone sit. You will see “Starting Fastboot protocol support" LEAVE IT UNPLUGGED

I used RSDLite 5.6.4, and got a little confused when it sat at 100% executed with the message "please reboot manually". I let it sit there for a few mins before I worked up the nerve to do a battery pull, it didn't show the SUCCESS message until after I rebooted the phone into step 9.

You'll need to get root again and a root file manager (I'd recommend having the .apk already, or at least know which one you are using ahead of time). I used the manual fastboot method to gain root.

Press VOLUME DOWN and go to backup and restore. Press the POWER BUTTON
Press the POWER button on backup
Select where you want to put your backup (internal or external memory)
Backup INCLUDING WEBTOP! (if you ever think you will use it)
Wait for it to finish.
Takes pretty long (I think it was like 45 mins+), and you need like 1-2 gigs of free space.



And for the Intl ram fix? Yeah I dunno, I just installed Cyanogen 7 rc1 and it fixed it. (don't forget to go into Cyanogen settings> Application settings > check Use Internal storage if your apps keep giving a "can't access/read/etc sd-card" error).


Those were the only issues that I ran into. So don't worry about doing it. I was as newb as they come, and it was fine. Following the guide, my only scary moment was when installing the rom, I didn't realize I choose "external sd-card" instead of "internal" and started freaking out because my rom.zip & backups weren't there.

Just waiting for CWM to finish backing up my stock 2.3.6.

Instructions were great. Similar to my experience with Nexus S (although this guy is oem lockable.)

For me, fumbled around the RSD protocol connection... connecting phone to 32bit windows came up with unknown hardware. Newest RSD-Lite doesn't come with motorola USB drivers. (From RSD-Lite release notes) So I just searched for motorola drivers -> ended up on their site for latest USB drivers. Installed driver set, RSD protocol worked just fine... continued with unlocking procedure.

Question: if I have ATT Atrix which sbf file should I download? The instructions weren't clear on that part.
