A homeless guy I trust down at the park gave me a white RAZR M.Told me it was good,but he was taking an upgrade.So,I get it home and plug it into the charger,and I get a strange screen.It won't boot up.When I went back to where he had his shopping cart and stuff,he said that he might have screwed it up when he tried to wipe his info off the phone,but I'm not sure how he did it.He told me it was on PagePLus,which is the carrier I have.Page Plus phones need to be flashed onto their network,if they are 4g,like the RAZR M.

So,I would like to get this phone to boot up,what should I try? I am not sure if it is totally bricked or not.This is what it looks like.It says:
AP Fastboot Flash Mode (S)
10.9B(*)(sha-1e91557,2013-05-29 13:50:43)
eWC info:Size 8gb

Device is LOCKED.Status Code:0

Battery OK
Transfer Mode:
USB Connected

Fastboot Reason:Flash Failure

No offense and I could be wrong but I would think most homeless dont maintain a cell phone plan.

Using RSD lite to flash stock firmware to get the phone working again is a good place to start. not sure how to go about flashing page plus.

This is how to flash it to PagePlus.

If you don't want to mess with having to re-flash the ICS modem and all that, you could try just flashing the logo to kick it out of fastboot mode. Get the original logo.bin from someplace and on your PC, type:

fastboot flash logo logo.bin

If the phone doesn't boot up normally after that, you'll have to reflash the whole thing using RSDLite and redo the entire PagePlus flashing process.
