Welcome to EternityProject's Flash-IT: RAZR XT910 RSD Flash Alternative Thread!

What do we have here?
This is an alternative to the RSD Flash, especially for those who are getting errors while flashing CDT. Generally, starting from the OTA that is installing the bootloader 0A.6C, you'll have problems flashing CDT with RSD Lite.. so, EternityProject Flash-IT is what you need for flashing.
It will work on every old and new bootloader, anyway.


Details:
RSD Lite is using XML files for interpreting what file it has to flash and passing the commands to FastBoot. We're going to flash this manually, without passing from RSD.


How-To:
0. Extract the package you've downloaded
1. Extract the Motorola ROM package
2. Copy the whole content of the EternityProject Flash-IT package into the folder where you've extracted the Moto ROM
3. Boot in AP FastBoot Mode
4. Connect your RAZR to the PC
5. Execute "FlashME.bat" (Windows) or "FlashNIX.sh" (Linux)
6. Enjoy!

Heh, thank you!
But more than an alternative, this was for making possible to flash official Motorola packages to the people with the new bootloader ;)

Looks like some typo in the FlashME.bat :)
Each command starts with "eprj-mfastboot.exe" flash ...
However there is no eprj-mfastboot.exe in the rar - it is actually moto-fastboot.exe...

Just to tell you it worked like a charm for me!
I was on the new OTA update without root access and I could downgrade into 651.73.30 without any problem!

Just a suggestion though : is it possible to have a finish message when all is over?
For now, the DOS windows only disappears right?

Thanks a lot for your great efforts for the RAZR community!

yeah, same here. ^^^ I'm stuck on ROM Island because my damn stock ROM is inaccessible/not reading correctly, so I'm on droidth3ory's ROM with no way home except fastboot, BUT the RSD lite method is NOT working for me for some odd reason. and i'm doing everything they say to do, except I don't have the RAZR charger drivers installed...idk if that's a problem.

Just download and extract the tar file(window) and copy contents to your rom(fastboot) folder. Then double click on flashME batchs file..... That all....
Thank to Kholk for saving us......;)

You can modifiy the .bat file with additional @pause in the end of command line :D

so the DOS windows will stay appear after the process done.

the end of the bat is like this:
Code:
....
eprj-mfastboot.exe reboot
echo
echo
echo Greets from the EternityProject!
[B]@pause[/B]

That's a good idea :p
I forgot to add it because since I'm always on Linux, when you execute a script here your terminal won't disappear :°)


EDIT: Okay, BAT fixed, I've added the @pause ;)

Please, advice to me.

Code:
Flashing EBR....
         sending 'ebr' (16 KB)... OKAY [  0.277s]
                 writing 'ebr'... INFOPreflash validation failure
FAILED (remote: )
Flashing MBR....
         sending 'mbr' (16 KB)... OKAY [  0.279s]
                 writing 'mbr'... INFOPreflash validation failure
FAILED (remote: )

adb and fastboot are the only tools I am using for flashing and updating firm/software since I got the N1, 2 years ago. I really glad that Motorola also using the same technique for updating firmware, because I am not using MS WIndows anymore. :)

Here are another tips which I frequently used.
1)
Code:
$ adb reboot bootloader
# Rebbot the phone and put it in FASTBOOT mode.

2)
Code:
$ adb reboot recovery
# Reboot the phone and put it in RECOVERY mode. Still need to push Vol up + Vol down to use the stock recovery.
3)
Code:
$ adb reboot
# Normal reboot

With the tips, you able to put your phone to the modes without touching it, :)


Thank you.

    For the first error change in the script the line
    "flash logo logo.bin" to "flash logo.bin logo.bin"
    Thanks, it worked.

    for the second one, i always have this error and i can't figure out what's going on.
    Maybe kholk could tell us more about this.

    I identified the problem.
    Kholk included the general fastboot binary that can be found in the android SDK.
    This has a size limitation for the partition to flash.
    I replaced the fastboot binary with a moto-fastboot found somewhere here in XDA and it worked...
    I think most of the people here use the windows version, so these problems did not emerge immediately.

    So, @Kholk, to summarize the fixes:
    1- removing the () in the sh script.
    2- replacing the fastboot binary with the one from motorola
    3- replacing logo with logo.bin

    Cheers and thank you for the help,

    No problem at all!

    Enjoy it!

    +1 Here, Can Anyone help us???

    The script always request low batery.

    Thanx
    Try the following
    1. Connect your phone using ORIGINAL USB cable to to ORIGINAL wall charger
    2. Press and hold both Vol+ and Vol- buttons at the same time and then press and hold Power button until bootloader menu appears with Normal boot already highlighted
    3. Use Vol- to highlight BP Tools and press Vol+ to select it
    4. Screen with red M will appear followed by a screen with the battery and number undeneath showing how much charge your battery has now which means phone is now in the battery charge only mode
    5. Wait for a battery to charge which should take over 3 hours
