Ok Guys,

< CRACKFLASHER :D

Don't ask how i did this, that doesn't matter :p

I tryed to restore my Backup that i did before in CWM, but get an Error restoring the System.

Delete these 3 Lines, if you don't want to loose your data!
I prefere an clean install, that's your choice :cool:

After flashing with RSD turn off your Device and boot into Recovery via AP Fastboot!

Flash the leaked Update.zip from there and reboot your Device.

Ofcourse there's no Root anymore!

Edit: I've used an Factory Cable for flashing...

This is perfectly right :)

But in case of wiping userdata, if you don't want to loose your data, you may delete the lines "erase userdata" and "emstorage". If the phone won't come up, then perform a full wipe.

In most cases it's enough to flash only "system" with RSD.

RSD isn't the only solution!! yes, RSD is easy to solve your problem but sometimes there is another way.

If you have install the bootstrap, there is a big chance to revive your phone without RSD & you will not lose root. But now, it's too late.

LOOK @ the XML I've posted. You have to delete the Lines, that give you failures.

BTW: I've tried to restore my Nandroid of this Leak via CWM. But only get the Error restoring System. I got 2 Nandroid-Backups on my SD. One clean, right after flashed the Leak and one complete Setup'd. But both of them wouldn't work.

After flashing with RSD the Phone boots into Recovery, as you know.

Flash the Update.zip from there and reboot your Device.

Ofcourse there's no Root anymore!

Edit: I've used an Factory Cable for flashing...


Also the this line "<step operation="flash" partition="emstorage" filename="emstorage.img" has to be deleted, if you want to retain your data. ;)

---------- Post added at 01:08 AM ---------- Previous post was at 01:07 AM ----------

Yes, i DELETED two line as you posted.

It doesn't work for me.

You have to delete the following lines: cdt.bin, devtree, cdrom, boot, recovery. And as I can see in your post you didn't delete the line cdt.bin! Please a bit more attention next time.. ;)

Not just the two lines.

LOOK @ your XML and then @ mine. There's no cdt.bin in mine.

Maybe just copy and paste ;)

If you have backup root using Vodoo OTA RootKeeper, it will make file su-backup immutable. The problem with the CWM restore is, it tries to delete all files in /system and failed at this file. That y u got "Error restoring System". But actually, the restore process is done until complete. You should just restart after that.

Yesssss, I forgot :D

And by the way: Better mark the second line ("flash emstorage") to retain userdata, else someone try this and perhaps will get chaotic data partition...(now the third time I've said this :D) There are THREE lines to delete for retaining userdata!!!

Our experience might be differ. But My phone survived that.
As long as you got these files in your /system, there is still a chance to fix without RSD.

Code:
/system/bin/hijack
/system/bin/logwrapper
/system/bin/logwrapper.bin
/preinstall/recovery/

    I hate to mark something by using my RazR

    That f...g Browser won't do what I want and my CNC got no Internet :banghead:

    I think it would help, but you have to be fast, when shutting down your Device with Power + Vol. down. As soon as your Screen turns black you have to press and hold Power + Vol up + Vol down to get into Recovery. I think the next Problem would be your Battery. If it's not charged enough, RSD wouldn't work.

    I had the same Problem, because I tried to restore my Nandroid Backup to long.

    My luck was to have an Factory Adapter. Payed 5€ for it and it saved my RazR :thumbup:
