[UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER ONLY ]
Okay i have found the solution ! but i take no responsability if you brick your phone !
My device is an XT925 ! from Rogers Canada !
I never lost IMEI during this downgrade ! Your bootlader must be unlocked !
1 : Charge your phone !
2 : Download the DROID RAZR HD Utility 1.10 - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1970267
3 : Go to fastboot...
4 : Downgrade ( yes is for XT926 but it work for XT925 )
5 : Go to fastboot don't let android start ( push 10 seconds power on - vol- - vol+ if the verizon logo start ...the phone shutdown go back to fastboot )
( i don't try to start the phone with the xt926 rom... )
6 : Download and flash via rsd the rom you want ( work great with O2 and LATAM retail )
( off topic : latam retail have only 3 language ... English spanish port...)
7: Downgrade security error ? or get var error ? Edit the XML Inside the rom : delete the 2 get var line :
<step operation="getvar" var="max-download-size" />
<step operation="oem" var="fb_mode_set" />
and delete :
<step operation="flash" partition="partition" filename="partition_signed" MD5="0c0917493a29c487f87434a0997c3048" />
8 : Enjoy your ics stock rom...
9 : Upgrade to Jelly Bean if available and if you want

ROOT ALL JB ROM ( and ICS rom )
No need to use OTA rootkeeper when bootloader is unlocked !
Flash CWM
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1973904

and Flash SuperSU Via CWM
http://download.chainfire.eu/298/Sup...erSU-v0.99.zip

Need LTE on JB rom ?
Flash via fastboot your modem and fsg...

fastboot erase modemst1
fastboot erase modemst2
Fastboot flash modem modem_signed
Fastboot flash fsb fsb_signed

I really love the o2 ROM... no bloatware...Fast... many language ( french ... arabic... etc )

Thanks for that. I'm going back to the stock software because I cannot do tethering on LTE with the jelly bean ROM.

Why ... if you do not delete ... there are an error when you flash...
This method is listed in many others topics ...
The only line anothers line i have deleted is
<step operation="flash" partition="partition" filename="partition_signed" MD5="0c0917493a29c487f87434a0997c3048" />
if i don't delete i have the downgrade security error
I really have no error with my XT925 ! from Rogers Canada !
Flashed 4 friend with the O2 rom

Why not? I deleted that line and the last line (see below) that was similar. No issues whatsoever, in fact the whole thing worked a treat!

The other line I also deleted was:

<step var="fb_mode_clear" operation="oem"/>

I figured if you're not setting it at the beginning, then there is no need to clear it at the end.

So, what exactly is the point of the DROID RAZR HD Utility 1.10? I reverted back to stock ICS by deleting that partition line and the getvar line and flashing via RSD Lite.

If you have to delete the <step operation="flash" partition="partition" filename="partition_signed" MD5="0c0917493a29c487f87434a0997c3048" /> line, that just means that there's still something irreversible after going JB.

Update: My SD card is not accessible after doing things my way.

Update 2: I think I'm retarded... I had my USB settings in Mass Storage mode (which blocks me from my SD card from my phone).
