im pretty sure that I soft bricked my droid 3 by accidentally flashing a rom that's not compatible with my device my device will turn on and only show tha dual core logo but will not go any further I down loaded the sbf file to unbrick it along with rsd lite. I also installed the Motorola drivers on my windows 7 but when I fastboot my phone and connect it to my computer my computer says that none of my drivers are installed what can I do now

open device manager (start>control panel>Hardware and sound)
find the Droid 3 or Unknown device, and in its properties' Driver tab click Update driver
select Browse my computer for computer software
select C:\Program Files\Common Files\Motorola Shared\Mobile Drivers\Drivers

if that doesn't help try downloading my copy of win 7 moto drivers
unzip with 7zip or other file compression utility and move to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Motorola Shared\Mobile Drivers\Drivers
and you can try uninstalling current installed diver in devices driver tab uninstall option

I tried all that and when I click update drivers it says there is no software available....but on my reboot menu there are a couple options that let my computer recognize the device in rsd lite but unfortunately I don't know how to use them ... there is a mkz flash an sbf flash and a fastboot flash can I do anything with those?

you downloaded my drivers file, unzipped and moved
uninstalled device and driver in device manager
disconnected d3, reconnected
selected install driver, browse for file, and navigated to new driver folder

if that doesn't work, i have no other suggestions
