the ftf you have is the stripped one - it contains only kernel.sin and loader.sin (not the other components of a full ROM). Therefore you have no options like wipe data. All you have to to is selecting 'No final verification' and clicking 'Ok'.

Just restart your phone manually, it will not reboot itself, I have tried it many times..

I think your 4.0.3 firmware is not the correct version.. Check also your Flashtool if its complete.. USB Debugging should be checked and MSC(mass storage mode). If the firmware that you have downloaded is the stripped one, maybe you should checked everything there as it is stripped (only kernel+loader).

This post is also useful in using Flashtool (maybe):http://androxyde.github.com/

You should see something like this on my attachment..

I'm not the OP of this thread....

If you want to have 4.0.4 on your phone, you should start at the beginning of the post..
Step 3 would just flush again the kernel of 4.0.4... If you want to follow the steps, download the regular ones not the stripped..

So it is "NO"...

Download the 4.0.3 firmware the complete one, not the stripped (although stripped is also good, but haven't tried it).. Put it in the flashtool/firmware, be sure you can see the 4.0.A... in the Flashtool as you go in Flashmode...

Everything in the first post's link for download are complete.

You can also install the the drivers, flashmode and adb from your flashtool/drivers before you start the flashing method..

Hey, open your CMD and type "adb devices" and then enter.. You should see the serial number of your phone, if not follow this link after flashing is complete.

The display will help you to make it easy to root 4.0.3 then..

Hey bro, put the 4.0.A...firmware on your c:Flashtool/firmware (should be unzipped with .ftf extension)... Only the 4.1.B.. is on the firmware. I thnk you have downloaded the stripped one..

In the flashmode, select the proper firmware by clicking it ( not the 0000)...

Success!
Hey guys, just updated my ray with the steps above.

It took a while to learn everything from scratch, but I found the guide to be very helpful.

For the record, here were the gotcha's that I got from doing this:
1. I updated to 4.0.4 from the stock gingerbread build which ran the zergrush exploit to root it. My phone has it's bootloader locked.
2. The 4.0.3A file I got was a bit annoying to get from the 4share sites, since it asked for signing up and I really didnt want to do it. Downloaded it from somewhere else.
3. When I ran the run.bat file, it seems on the last reboot, my phone didnt reboot until I hit the enter key first, then it logged me a message about root and its groups. I thought it was waiting for a reboot on its own before I hit the last enter key to reboot, but it did it anyways.
4. After the flash with the flashtool, the log message said my phone was rebooting, but I found that it did not. I just simply unplugged the cable and manually restarted and voila! All the fun and goodness.
5. While I flashed to 4.0.3, the "about the phone" on my phone stated the package was still 4.0.4 (the letter B was on the build). I basically ignored this and jumped right to the next step of reflashing to 4.0.4. (also confirmed root was working by opening my terminal emulator and running SU).

Overall, amazing! its 4AM here but I say it was worth the effort to do!
Thanks to everyone who did this! This is amazing!
