My thread uses the FXZ so it doesn't care what version you're coming from. It can be flashed onto any version and allows you to keep your data while doing so.


Samsung S4 Google Play Edition
Moto X Developer Edition

1. Download the official stock firmware for your phone and provider from here http://sbf.droid-developers.org/
2. Extract the zip file to a local directory on your PC, modify the XML file which is included and keep only the 'flash' commands (remove the 'erase' to keep your data).
3. Save the XML after cleaning.
4. Using motorola RSDLite, flash the zip file to your phone (now containing the modified XML).
5. After you're done, flash dhacker's new TWRP 2.7.1.1 for this phone http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2776515 or his new CWM 6.0.4.9 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2747535

Unless you're planning on installing a custom ROM afterwards, I would encourage you to then get busy with SamuriHL's thread here: http://www.droidrzr.com/index.php/to...a-442-1834614/
Thank you much sir, got it working.

Default Still Possible?

Just reading the news about a new opportunity to unlock the bl. I missed the boat the first time around. Am I too late?

I have a completely stock Razr M "non rooted / locked bl", not updated since OTA last year.

System version 98.16.3.XT907
4.1.2
9.8.1Q-78-1
Wed May 29 2013

I had no idea the M was getting KK until a few days ago! I fear that since I have not yet updated to KK that I have missed out again? If I check for updates now, I think I will get the version with the exploit already blocked? Wish I would have found out about this sooner!

P.S. I am however happy that some of you got a second chance and took it, opportunity rarely knocks more than once!

ahh, you are indeed in the wrong forum, this is the hd/maxx hd forum.

you can still use all of the guide except the hd specific files. use @SamuriHL's method with your phones current kk build, that way there will be no chance you get the new update by checking on the phone. afterwards, you can proceed to the rooting and unlocking parts. both phones use the same files for that.

***just dont use my Utility or the JB file, they are for the 926 only***
