Default The hardware is identical.....

EXCEPT for the keyboard (maybe the screen, too??). If you have a spare Droid 4 laying around, why not?

For even the above casual user this might be a little much. I haven't had much luck with getting my fully functioning Droid 4 to be recognized by RSDLite.

Although, I do want to know from the developer here, HOW CAN I HELP??

I don't want to just take take take, some of us want to give back.

I bricked my spare Droid 4, and everyone should be really careful with SafeStrap, and backup everything (including the webtop).

Droid RAZR fastboot files would probably work on the Droid 4, IF we had unlocked bootloaders. I have tried every combination of DR fastboot files on the D4 and the /system/ partition is never properly signed for the D4.

We need a full Droid 4 update or Droid 4 fastboot files to get back to working order, the Razr won't cut it.

Without trying to sound too stupid here(lol), but could we not make a stock nandroid backup and dump the image in the fastboot file by chance, and change the md5 inside zip?

The problem is not hardware, but rather encryption. Quite simply, we need a properly signed and encrypted software bundle to load on the locked bootloader. If we could sign and encrypt the bundle ourselves, the locked bootloader would not be an issue. The Droid Razr is a different phone with a different encryption key, so we can't use those fastboot files on a D4. We also can't sign our own Nandroid, so we can't load that either.

Is there anything that I can do to help?

I'm really eager to get into Android development, and would be willing to pursue the path in getting these signed drivers.

I don't think this will be a problem for much longer. http://www.droid-life.com/2012/03/20...k-on-lte-razr/
