This thread is specially for people who are new in Motorola, and don't know how to solve their problems,


Quote:

There are some necessary tools for all Motorola users that i'm trying to explain about them briefly :


Quote:

1- Motorola Drivers

This is a must have software you have to install on pc or laptop, it's impossible for pc to detect your phone without this software, so do it





Quote:

2- RSD lite

This is official software from Motorola to flash Fastboot files to the device, so you have to install the software on your pc or laptop,



After flashing a costum rom, you can revert to stock with this software, also when you are in a

bootloop you can go back to stock Rom with this software:



Quote:

- download fastboot file you need from here

- extract it in a folder, you have a XML file here

- run RSD lite

- browse XML file to the empty box

- connect the phone to the pc via usb cable in AP Fastboot mode

- click start button on RSD & be patient to flash the files







Quote:

Some Tips of Razr i:

- when the phone is freezed or you are in a bootloop, you can force the device to power down, just push & hold Vol - and Vol+ and

power buttons at the same time for 10 seconds, the phone will be shut down

- for going to boot menu, first turn off the phone, then push & hold Vol buttons and power button at the same time

for about 10seconds, then you will enter to boot menu, now use Vol - button to scroll and Vol + to select an option.

- for going to Stock Recovery, you have to select "recovery" in boot menu, then you'll see a black screen with Android triangle in the middle, now you have to push Vol - + buttons at the same time to enter to recovery

I'll update this post soooooon



is this helpful? feel free to push ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ THANK BUTTON

Hi thanks for that - I have a Razr on its way to replace my Defy (running CM7 Maniac's version) - obviously I'll be wanting to root it, but wary of guarantee issues. I'm happy with the process of restoring a fastboot file - but can't see a T Mobile UK version on the link provided - has one been sourced yet? (I'm guessing that the Orange and T Mobile files are still different even though they are both now part of EE)

Cheers

Edit the xml file(with notepad) by removing gpt and motoboot line and then flash . It's been published on many threads by now.

Are you bootloader unlocked? Were you on JB?
