I used option 1 on the CDMA version to restore to latest OTA version and now I am stuck at the welcome screen. Any suggestions?

Thanks to a DroidRZR forum member, Nattybee:
'Turn phone on, when you see the Android guy DO NOT TOUCH
Then, starting with the top left corner of the screen, touch each corner of the screen clockwise (top left, then top right, then bottom right, then bottom left)
At this point you should get a FC for setup...then you should get a box asking if you're sure you want to exit setup- YES- then you should get to the screen that tells you which parts of setup you completed (except none will be checked) click OK. '

Problem resolved.

Interesting, my utility uses the same method. I'd bet that you didn't use the latest GSM Utility that uses motofail....

Hi Matt, thanks for your prompt response. I downloaded the "Full" version for GSM from the OP and note it is version 1.0. Should I have downloaded the Lite or CDMA version?

Thanks

You will want to use motofail by Dan Rosenberg. sevenup30 is updating the GSM Utility eventually

First, thanks for making this utility. As someone who doesn't have a lot of free time to research the different options it's great to have it all in one place.

I have a Verizon Razr Maxx. I rooted using your utility before the .173 ota. I did some messing around and I would like to start from scratch. I take it the fastboot in option 1 would be what I'm looking for. Will that completely overwrite the file system (as in, everything in the /system/ folder)? Meaning, any extra files I had put there will be gone and any files I removed will be restored? That is what I am hoping for.

Also, is there any difference between 1.40 and 1.41 apart from not wiping the internal SD card?

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Okay, so i did a little more digging and found the answers. I went ahead and restored using option 1, but all of my apps and etc are still installed. I also saw a couple errors while it was running (erasing userdata, erasing emstorage, erasing cache all failed). What could I have done wrong? I ran it multiple times and got the same result. Thanks.

EDIT2: Okay, so after a bit more Googling I did a data and cache wipe and tried it again. I still go three failures.

Quote:

sending 'mbmloader' (42 KB)... FAILED (command write failed (No such file
or directory))
sending 'mbm' (512 KB)... FAILED (command write failed (No such file
or directory))
rebooting into bootloader... FAILED (command write failed (No such file
or directory))

Are those things I should be concerned about? The system seems OK. I did this on my Razr Maxx (Verizon) after taking the .173 OTA.

Well, I used the great tool to root my Droid RAZR ASIA_USA unbranded GSM phone (OS Version 2.3.5) AND IT WORKED JUST AT STATED! I was stoked!

Then...THE VERY NEXT DAY...the OTA update to 2.3.6 (VERY nice improvement!) showed up on my phone. I had installed Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper as instructed, so I accepted the OTA update.

Arrrggghh! I now have a fully-functional UNrooted version 2.3.6 RAZR. I tried using OTA Rootkeeper to restore my root...but NO luck! And, when I try to use your fine .bat file to either (a) Restore my phone to pre-OTA (6.12.173), (b) Do Droid root for 2.3.6 or (c) Unroot NOTHING works.

I am not adverse to doing a full system reset to factory, redownloading the OTA, installing it and THEN rooting, but I wonder if there's an easier way.

Can anyone help a semi-noob with my problem? (I'm only a little bummed out and not a t all panicked.) ;)

Chuck

Doh! I THINK I downloaded used the wrong version of the script—912/CDMA instead of 910/GSM. Not sure if downloading and using the correct script will help me get back to where I want to be, but I'm going to try.

We'll see.

But I'd still like to know the simplist route back to OTA update to 2.3.6 + root.

OK...did full (Moto) system reset. Left me with 2.3.6. OS and nothing changed...except that I had to retore all my apps. Still can't re-root with ANY .bat file.

However, i STILL have the Clockwork Mod menu whenever i re-start/reboot. Can I use that to get re-rooted? If, so, how?

Please help! My phone works fine, but is obvioulsy caught somewhere between stick and rooted.

Thanks!
