Default [Q] question about 5.7.906 sbf

hey all - I got a new D3 replacement today after the touch screen stopped working on the old one. it came with 5.7.906 installed. i am confused as to weather there is a way to unbrick it if i manage to muss it up when i go back to cm9. i love cm9 and hate the stock rom but considering this is my 5th D3 i am not willing to flash roms if i have no way to return to stock in case of hardware malfunction so i can get a new one under waranty

i appreciate any information on the topic

As long as you can get to the Moto Bootloader, then it is 90% likely that you can unbrick it. The tools can be found here:

If you try to sbf with the 5.6.890 it will fail and you will probably break your bootloader as the files have changed with the update and there is no "real" way back as of yet...BUT...
Q9Nap has helped out
" if you've actually flashed the 5.7.906 leak and need to fxz your device, the stock 5.6.890 fxz will fail becuase there are some components that cannot be reverted. here's a package of 5.7.906 fxz components you can drop in to your 5.6.890 fxz folder or zip so you can flash with rsdlite:

So, flashing this .xml through RSD will push 5.7.906 to the phone? Because my phone refuses to accept any leak though stock recovery, but I can still flash it with AP Fastboot.

No theese are the files you need to add to your 5.6.890 sbf files so you can successfully flash back to 5.6.890 then you will need to install the 5.7.906 update again

Oh, ok, so these are just the 5.6.890 FXZ files?

These are the 5.7.906 files that can't be reverted along with a modified xml file that has the proper md5 values for the new files.

Hold on... Will flashing these through AP Fastboot put me on 5.7.906? I'm unable to flash a .zip leak though stock recovery. It fails when "flashing BP", bricks me, and I must FXZ to 5.6.890 to get it up and running again.

Here's a video showing what happens when I try to flash 5.7.894 (have only tried this since it can be 5.6.890 FXZ'd over).

You should only flash the package i made if you're trying to get back to 5.6.890 from 5.7.906. If you're on 5.7.894, you should still be able to flash the stock 5.6.890 fxz without any issues. Not sure why you're getting the error on bp; as long as you're using an unmodified 5.7.894 leak and stock recovery it should work fine. I'd try flashing 5.6.890 with rsdlite as it flashes all possible partitions; pete's moto-fastboot method doesn't flash everything.

I'm currently on 5.6.890 running various safestrapped ICS builds, but would like the updated radio from the newer leaks. I'm afraid to try anything higher than 5.7.894 because I know I can't go back...until now maybe with these files. My fear was I would flash 5.7.906 with stock recovery, get bricked, and be stuck there because it failed while flashing like 5.7.894 does to the phone.
