Default [Q] SBF through RSD Lite in Windows 8

Please note that I have tried the Linux method through Hyper-V, but it does not support USB. I have also tried booting into Ubuntu through the CD, but am unable to get it to boot. I am looking for any assistance with WINDOWS 8 and RSD LITE only. Thanks in advance.

Problem:
I am unable to SBF my X2 back to 2.3.4 using RSD Lite in Windows 8. I have installed the Motorola drivers, installed the Android SDK, booted the phone in RSD Protocol Support, installed RSD Lite 5.4.4 and 5.7 (separately, same problem). ADB notices the phone, Windows notices the phone, but RSD Lite does not recognize that the phone is connected when I'm in RSD mode. I am also running RSD Lite as Admin and have used compatibility modes for XP SP3, Windows 7, and Windows 8. No luck on any aspect.

Has anyone had luck using RSD Lite with their X2 since the release of Windows 8? Did you have to take specific steps to install drivers/software? I've searched for hours here and other sites and have come up with nothing.

I'm trying to get RSD Lite to work in Windows 8 as well and so far no luck. I've downloaded the most recent drivers. I can connect normally (charging, usb mode, access sd card through windows, etc.) but just not when using RSD Lite.

It seems RSDLite works but your device os probably just not recognised for windows, so you have to look for drivers for your device for the bootloader mode on google, install the drivers and try again with RSDLite.

I was on windows 8 and I just downloaded the Droid X2 drivers and also RSD lite and i would start up RSD Lite, then i would connect the usb , then i would connect my phone to the usb and put it in rsd mode and it would work so it is weird to hear that it doesnt work for you

Looks like it works only with USB2.0 and not with USB3.0 in Windows 8 and higher.

I'm having the same problem. It's been driving me crazy, but I'm glad to see I'm not the only one...
