First if you dont have the drivers you can get them here http://developer.motorola.com/docstools/USB_Drivers/Handset_USB_Driver/?pubid=987654
Here is the uk sbf if anybody needs a different link. http://www.mediafire.com/?c9998ff6k4v9jvw needs to be extracted from the rar
One question;Which firmware should be chosen if one lives in any other country than those listed? Is it possible to see somewhere in the phone itself which area it comes from?
Their is only one current SBF. So if you brick, you only have one choice.
I am stuck in a boot loop and I am getting this error: "Failed flashing process. Unable to retrieve initialization values from INI file. (0x7029); phone connected" I read posts that suggest you need RSDLite 4.6 so I downloaded that to make sure I have the right version. My phone is being identified as S Flash OMAP3630. I am running Win XP 32bit. Any ideas??? I am seriously stuck! **EDIT** Ahh...looks like 4.6 is even outdated now...thanks @JboogieBop for the tip on 4.9.
I have a big boot loop, and dont can solve it. I flash all the existing sbf and wipe and nothing, only boot loop...Any idea ¿?¿
Just make sure you wipe both before and after the flash...if you are doing so already I am not sure..
and this can b used on a moto cliq im sorry im a noob to this forum
I wipe before and after, and boot loop continue...
try removing the radio.img from the .sbf you are using. Then try it again.
I have wiped the drive and the cache, then I installed 64bit drivers from Motorola, then I downloaded the UK .sbf file and opened up RSDLite and selected the .sbf file and nothing happens. It doesnt show the phone on RSD Lite, and my phone still shows the system recovery screen.
Which one do i choose from the list?!! im stuck in the bootlop after flashing the 2.2 chinese sbf :/
@TS77UK you should not be in recovery for flashing the sbf file. You need to be be in bootloader mode. Hold the volume key up (instead of down) while booting. Also make sure you have the latest version of RSDLite or it might not recognize the phone.
@joeyarroyo any of them should work, just make note that 2.5.1 is hard to work with and I would not recommend it. Also if you are trying to flash a 2.2 rom from a 2.1 rom you may need to flash the 2.2 boot only. It can be found on XDA. This may be the cause of your boot loop.
@rbeier1221i was able to flash the rom. And with the 3g fix i also got hspa which is great. But i did find that the google apps and latitude and nav wont work... is there any fix for that?
Sorry I didn't reply sooner...there are google apps files you may need to install separately. If you haven't fixed it yet, what issue are you seeing with Navigation?
As mentioned above, there's just the last link working in the rom-download area referred to in the first post. Because of several reasons I want to downgrade from my 2.2 back to 2.1.Is there any possibility do download the stock version with blur for AT or UK?
Same problem here... Somebody got the German (DE, AT, CH) Rom and could upload it?..
I can only get into bootloader. I have the latest version of RSDLite and I'm trying to flash UK 2.1. I receive the "Failed flashing process" error.I can't get into System Recover to do any wipes. I just get the android fella with an exclamation mark. Any ideas?
@Fissics after you see android fella touch the lower right side of the screen to get into recovery
does anyone know how to get 3g back
It says flashing process failed unable to retrieve values from INI files phone connected -.-WHAT DO I DO!!stuck on boot logo -.-
My system failed to detect the phone, all I had to do was browse to the RSD install directory, right click SDL.exe and select "Run As Administrator". It then found and flashed my Motorola Defy. :)
I did everything as instructed, but when the RSD Lite finishes it says PASS and my phone should restart but it doesn't. It remains dead and I can't make it work. Now even if I want to start it with VOL UP and POWER button, nothing happens. I have a spanish Vodafone version, which ROM should I download? Although nothing appears on the screen, my PC still recognises it and it shows as connected on port 1 in RSD Lite. I've tried with various versions of ROMs but every time the same thing happens. Please help!
Just make sure to have newest version of RSDlite
