Default Droid 4 Utility ICS Only

This tool is based on the original D4 Utility with additions and rewrites by me. Doing any of this is at your own risk.

08/14 Tool Version now 2.0 !!! THE JUMP TOOL IS DEAD!!! No reason for this now that we have ICS Fastboot files.

08/31 Tool Version now 2.1 Here's what's new

10/25 Tool Version 2.2 corrected minor script error and updated to safestrap 3.05

1. Set of instruction included within the tool. Once you open the tool select menu 1 to display them. This is a .txt file so you must have some reader (I use notepad++).

2. Safestrap 3.05 (Thanks Hashcode)

3. Latest Superuser (3.1.3) and binary (3.1.1)

4. Restore to 6.16.217 ICS or upgrade a GB phone to 6.16.217 ICS with option to save or erase data

5. Unroot script - This will remove superuser, the su binary and busybox. However if you boot into recovery it will still indicate root or at least past root (qe display in recovery). Even a fastboot with data wipe will not reset this.

Where to download: http://d-h.st/users/jsnweitzel

Add the ICS fastboot file to the lite tool to run menu 11 or 12. Get it here: http://sbf.droid-developers.org/cdma_maserati/list.php Then unzip it and add the files to the "files" folder of the tool.

If you have trouble connecting your phone be sure you have the latest drivers installed from moto:

Use this tool at your own risk.

Can't wait to try this to go from .213 to .215! Will let you know my results. Right now, there are too many bugs in .213 for me to use it on a daily basis, hope .215 is better!

Edit: nevermind, d-h.st is back up again!

Edit 2: update went very smoothly, thanks!

Edit 3: fixed my issues with a data wipe - almost got bricked, but your tool saved me again! Now I'm back in action with .215 and having the best phone experience ever. If I could hit 'thanks' multiple times, I would!

I just pushed this to my phone and now it is running soo much better (mostly due to the new build of the ICS leak) I was missing a home button and the lock screen, but so far not seeing too many bugs and I have root again. Brilliant! Cheers!

FYI, there is no link to the .217 OTA zip in the OP.

So let's see I'm reading this correctly.

I installed the 217 leak file today (got tired of waiting for the ota soak test) and lost root.

To get it back I just need the lite version linked above, is that correct?
