Sorry that I didn't reply any sooner. This is what I did, since when the phone is with that problem won't charge the battery nor with charger nor with USB, so, I ran out of juice... I had to get an universal charger to charge the battery and then I flash it with RSD. I've flashed this file 154_5 sbf, once I got in, I flashed the updated one. It worked pretty good.

Let me know, regards.

I changed to Alien Rom.after changing to alien rom I was facing a lot of FCs.So tried RSD lite with latest SBF.Now I am stuck at "Failed to boot 4 starting RSD mode"
From what I read from forums my phone is soft bricked.

"Failed to boot 4" is when a filesystem is missing a signature

The solution is to flash 154 sbf using RSDlite 5.5 version with a fully charged battery using the usb at the back of your computer.

Once you are successful flashing 154 you can update with latest SBF.

The important points are below.

1. Fully charged battery. (use an external battery charger as Photon does not charge batery in boot mode.

2. Used RSDlite 5.5 version

3. Use USB at back.

4. Use 154 not the latest version of SBF.

5. Make sure the process is not interrupted until the process is completed
