ALL CREDIT GOES TO SAMURI HL FOR CREATING THIS AWESOME TOOL.
Please do yourself a favor and read, read again, and read one more time before installing and using this tool. If it's set up correctly, it's very easy to use. But if you don't follow directions, it'll either not work or not do what you expect. Failure to read and follow the directions is NOT a defect of the tool!
Mission statement for tool:
This will allow users to have a user friendly framework automation tool for new Motorola devices. Easily customized for any device that allows RSD or fastboot flashing of custom scripts that perform various functions. Most notably is when a user screws something up and the phone no longer boots (so called soft bricking). The KEEP DATA and/or FULL scripts can restore the partitions of the phone to minty factory fresh in the event that your phone doesn't boot.
WARNING: Upgrades from 1.4 are NOT supported. Install CLEAN. You have been warned.
o) You MUST have the latest Motorola USB driver installed: http://lmgtfy.com/?q...rola USB driver
o) Download: HouseOfMoto_2.0.zip
o) Extract the HouseOfMoto folder in the zip to your hard drive. IMPORTANT: Make sure no spaces are in the path. (Windows users should extract it to C:\)
o) Download the support file for your device and extract into your HouseOfMoto directory. (see device support below)
o) Download your FXZ from here: http://sbf.droid-developers.org/ [Site is back, BUT, very limited. It'll take time to repopulate it]
o) Add the FXZ files to your HouseOfMoto\FXZ_xtYYY directory. (see Adding the FXZ below)
o) If root exists for your device, add the files to the root folder. Make sure run.bat and/or run.sh exists.
CLARIFICATION: When I say "if root exists for your phone" I'm referring to a root exploit that has a run.bat script in order to install root. If that doesn't exist for your phone, or your root exploit does not have a run.bat, this does not apply to you. This is ONLY for adding an option to root your phone to the House of Moto menu as a convenience option. It is NOT a required step.
o) You may need to chmod +x HouseOfMoto.sh
o) You may need to run HouseOfMoto.sh as sudo
o) Your phone MUST be in AP Fastboot mode. Try holding volume down and pressing the power button when the phone is off.
o) Run the HouseOfMoto.bat or HouseOfMoto.sh in your HouseOfMoto directory
o) On first run:
Enter your device model (xt926, xt875, etc)
For Windows: Select flash mode: rsd or fastboot
o) Flash mode on Windows can be changed from the main menu
o) Phone model can be changed from the main menu
o) Select the script you wish to flash
o) Follow directions!
Adding the FXZ:
This part confuses a LOT of people so I'm going to use the FXZ for the xt926 as an example of how this should work. Obviously you'll need to use the proper FXZ for your device, but, the concept is generally the same.
This is a point that many get wrong so please follow this carefully...
When you open your VRZ_XT926_9.8.1Q-79-1_CFC.xml.zip file, you will see a directory inside it. You must go INTO the directory inside the zip. There you will see a whole bunch of files. Select them all, and extract them into the FXZ_xt926 folder. All the files must be at the root of the FXZ_xt926 folder, NOT in a sub folder within it. If you have this:
It's wrong. If instead you have this:
o) xtYYY is the device model...i.e. xt1058, xt895, etc
Q: What flash mode should I pick?
A: Whether you use RSD or fastboot is a personal choice and completely up to you. If you have problems flashing in one mode, you can switch to the other and try again to see if you get better results.
If I tell you to create a log and post it, you are to run the CreateLOG.bat file to your c:\HouseOfMoto directory and post the results in this thread.
