Default [Q] XT926 RSDlite not recognizing device

So my razr is softbricked. I have been reading the forums here for the last 4 days, probably around 10 hours+ reading for solution. Anyways, my phone refuses to turn on and it pulls up the "downgraded security version" on the fastboot screen. Now, adb recognizes my phone in fastboot mode, and I tried flashing back the stock firmware (I had it updated to 9.30 locked bootloader) to no luck. I read that RSDlite is the way to go, but it refuses to recognize my phone. I have updated the drivers close to 9 times already, and I honestly doubt that's the issue, as adb can recognize my phone just fine. Under configuration/Flash Modes there's an option for fastboot, which is greyed out and unclick-able. Is there something I could do to get it to recognize my phone? I'm not ready to give up on it just yet.

I figured the reason RSDlite wasn't working. For those who are experiencing similar issues with RSDlite not recognizing your device, I can confirm that it does not work with windows 8.1. You will have to run it in windows 7, or else it will not recognize your device.

When you say windows 7, do you mean a true physical win 7 machine, or windows 8.1 with rsdlite being executed in win 7 compatibility mode? I can't get rsdlite to work on my laptop as well and have no other machine..

I have another old desktop running windows 7. I tried it there and it was able to recognize my razr in fastboot. My laptop runs windows 8.1, and no matter what I did, rsdlite didn't recognize my razr. I think rsdlite just doesn't support 8.1 yet.

Thanks for the clarification, although it was not the answer I was hoping to hear

I honestly would switch my laptop to windows 7, if i didn't have to pay the 100$ for the OS. I still can't seem to adapt to windows 8. I don't like the answer any more than you do, I messed around with the settings enough to give up. Hopefully they might make a patch in the near future to allow it to work on windows 8.1.

Needs to be USB2.0 and you need to use the original moto cable.....generally it does matter

I used a USB 2.0 port on my laptop and desktop, same sync cable on both. If the cable was the only thing stopping it in windows 8.1, then I'm sure it would had been the same in windows 7. However, I was fully able to use RSDlite on my windows 7 desktop without any issues.

unfortunately I don't even have a USB2.0 port anymore on my ultrabook.. ah well, who needs RSDLite anyway, but still weird that it doesn't work.
