I pride myself in being able to come up with really stupid ideas and causing myself all kinds of issues. LMAO.  I may give it another try and see how painful I can make this on myself.  Or I may go back to CM 10.1 and call it good.  LOL.

 

When you flashed TWRP, did you go into recovery immediately after that?  It should disable the install-recovery.sh similar to CWM.

Yes, I tried to.  I was in AP Fastboot mode, flashed TWRP, shut it off, booted it up into recovery and it came up stock every time.  Freaking damn phone.  LOL

So, now that I've been through this ride, I can't FXZ back to MR2 anymore.  The flash looks like this:

 

07/10/13 14:15:40  Multi upgrade started for 1 phones
07/10/13 14:15:40  [Device ID: 0] 1/26 flash sbl1 "sbl1.mbn"

Stupid question time.  Does anyone (cough cough Hash?) have a list of all the partitions on the HD and what the hell they are?  Coming from the OMAP world this Snapdragon stuff still eludes me.

Yeah part of the update is gpt_main0 partition which is like OMAP style cdt.  It looks to contain partition entry info (not sure if it's eactly like cdt).  This is probably what is causing the fail on tz.  Interesting that sbl1-3 and rpm will flash tho.

You'd think with an unlocked bootloader we'd be able to flash those things regardless of the security they have.  Isn't that the point of having an unlocked bootloader?  :)

cdrom -> /dev/block/mmcblk0p37
cid -> /dev/block/mmcblk0p28
devtree -> /dev/block/mmcblk0p30

hob -> /dev/block/mmcblk0p20 (related to signature checking)
kpan -> /dev/block/mmcblk0p33 (kernel panic partition)

mbl -> /dev/block/mmcblk0p19 (main bootloader)
misc -> /dev/block/mmcblk0p26 (usually used for communication w/ recovery but looks blank)

Samurai does your AP Fastboot screen show the sbl2 security downgraded message and then the 4 fail codes?

Not anymore.  But it did when I tried to FXZ back to MR2.  Once I restored my MR4 nandroid everything appears to be normal in AP Fastboot.  However, I don't think the nandroid messes with what the update installs on most of the partitions.  I was going to attempt something stupid real quick but I don't know how far down the rabbit hole I wanna go with this thing.  It'd be useful information to have though.  

 

Hash thanks for the list.  That's very helpful!

So far so good. I'm fully stock with the unlocked boot loader and I was able to take the update. It said it failed once the phone booted back up but it is showing the newer version in the about phone section. As to whether or not it can be rooted I'm not sure at work now and can't check. I did boot into fast boot and it is showing the boot loader still unlocked.

You can see what failed by doing this as root in adb: cat /cache/recovery/last_log

Ok, I heavily modified my RSD script for my House of RAZR_HD and was able to I believe successfully flash back to MR2.  We'll find out in a second if it worked or not but I got no errors in RSD this time.  That means I should, in theory, be able to apply the update again.

 

Hash, do you know if anything critical happens in the update after the moto_bl_backup()?  That's where the update stops for anyone who's unlocked.

That's like the very last line in the update.  So I doubt it.

 

Also for those interested, I re-flashed TWRP and everything went swell.  Here's the updated TWRP 2.6 .img:

EDIT: Also looks like you only see that downgraded message once on the AP fastboot screen.  It's gone now on mine.

Awesome.  Thanks man!  I'm about to rock this update again, reinstall TWRP, install root, and nandroid it.
