Extract your FXZ manually and then select the xml file inside the folder you extracted it to.

I mistakenly didn't select sdl.exe when first setting up RSDFlasher, any way to go back and fix that?

Kuel.  Glad you worked through that.  You are incorrect about the differences between the scripts, however.

 

FULL:

Flashes everything, erases data partition

 

KEEP DATA:

Flashes everything, does NOT erase data partition

 

UNIVERSAL:

Flashes everything except gpt and tz partitions, does NOT erase data partition

 

There is a one line difference between the full and keep data scripts, and that's the line to erase the data partition.

 

Hi, I am unlocked and rooted. Stock 9.18.94

 

I am trying to decide between KEEP DATA and UNIVERSAL

 

why would I not want to flash the gpt and tz partitions?

 

Thanks

Depends on what you're doing.  For upgrading to a higher version, you want keep data.  For the same version or downgrading, use universal.

I am currently rooted and unlocked running CM. I rooted and unlocked over a year ago before the patch was ever released. If I use the instructions in the OP along with rooting and unlocking using towelroot/motopocalypse, will it give me the Kit-Kat bootloader so I am able to install newer ROMS? Or what is the best way to get the kit-kat bootloader?

 

Thanks!

No need to use towel root. Once unlocked, always unlocked.

 

Just flash the FXZ to upgrade yourself to KK. Then sideload SuperSU or whatever root app you use. Towelroot is only for those that do not have an unlocked bootloader.

Yes, updating will give you the latest bootloader.

Awesome. Just a few questions before I give this a shot.

 

1. Is it safe to choose the KEEP DATA option?

2. Won't I need to flash a new recovery that is compatible with the new bootloader? If so, is there a link to a good recovery?

3. Do I side load SuperSU.zip using the recovery or adb?

 

Thanks for your help.

1. Not if coming from a rom, no

2. Yes, use TWRP 2.7.1.0 (search for it...get the proper version for your phone)

3. No need.  Just install the SuperSU app before installing recovery.  Boot into TWRP directly after you flash it in fastboot mode, then when you select to reboot system, it'll prompt you to install root.  Boot back up, open the SuperSU app, allow it to update the binary, and bob's your uncle.

Ok, perfect. So as far as #1 goes, I should just choose the FULL option to be safe then?

might be doing a previous step wrong? 

 

I just went through this and found:

 

Please Check input file.  Either XML format is wrong or image files associated with it are missing.

 

The 2nd half of the error message is the clue.

 

Checking the generated KEEPDATA.xml and going line by line checking the expanded directory... I found that the boot.img file was not extracted automagically.  Extracting the missing file in to the directory with the XML referencing it resolved my problem.

 

As for why the unpacker missed a file?... no idea but please check if you see that error, it's not likely to be a bad XML.

 

Also OP is accurate and it worked flawless (after fixing above), now I have rooted, unlocked Razr HD on kitkat which is amazing for a device we though was locked down forever.  Thanks!

The fxz file here is 100% factory stock for the xt-926.  Gives you a complete factory verizon phone.

There are custom roms available in there threads you can search for those.  This thread is for fixing and upgrading to stock.

Yea, this thread will update you to 4.4.2 and allow you to keep data.  Just follow the instructions in the OP and you should be good to go.  Also, take the time to unlock your phone once you're updated and then the world is opened up to you.  Enjoy!

I don't mean to be rude, but if you can't follow the instructions in the first post of this thread then I can't really help you. The very first line instructs you to fully read which you have clearly failed to do. I have very little tolerance for people that just want hand holding and put no effort in.
