I have rooted and flashed my droid 2 and droid 4 phones perhaps 100 times but when it came to my XZ it was not as happy sailing.
I started in a tutorial from unlocker on the method of rooting and installing recovery in a XZ without unlocking the bootloader.
but because I could not find my firmware specified with doomLord I chose kingo for my root, rebooted and everything was happy. I followed the rest of the tutorial to a 't' from the DRM keys to the recovery. Rebooted and everything was good.
This is where I should of spent time unlocking my bootloader
I downloaded pacrom and installed it through TWRP after clearing cash, system, and dalvik I think.
I also installed Gapps
When I tried to reboot it was all I could get was a flashing red light where the text indicator would normally be. My screen does not alter, if I hold down power it will vibrate every 4seconds, if I hold power up and power it will vibrate three times but nothing happens after.
I am able to get into fastboot mode, and the mode that works with emma(i am drawing a blank right now) using the volume rocker and plugging the usb in while holding them. Both apps (emma, and flashtool) recognize there modes.
Simply plugging the phone in will cause it to be seen by the computer but it will just connect and disconnect every minute or so.
In flashboot if I try to Hotboot it will give me a message about the command not being aloud remote.
I feel like if I can get all this to recognize there should be a way to get it back. Does anyone have an idea as to a way to unlock the bootloader or return it to stock using the limited function I have?
