Please do yourself a favor and read, read again, and read one more time before installing and using this tool.  If it's set up correctly, it's very easy to use.  But if you don't follow directions, it'll either not work or not do what you expect.  Failure to read and follow the directions is NOT a defect of the tool!
 
Mission statement for tool:

 

This tool generates FULL, KEEP DATA, and for some devices UNIVERSAL, RSD scripts for your FXZ. After generating the script in the background, it then automates flashing the script with RSD LIte similar to how the House of Moto works.  This tool is completely separate from the House of Moto.

 

FULL = Flash everything, erase userdata (even if the FXZ doesn't inherantly do so, it is added to the generated FULL script) NOTE: Erases data and internal storage.
KEEP DATA = Flash everything, do NOT erase userdata (regardless of whether the FXZ contains the erase userdata line or not)
UNIVERSAL = Flash everything except GPT and TZ, do NOT erase userdata (regardless of whether the FXZ contains the erase userdata line or not)
 

Downloads:

 (NOTE: This is a JAR file, NOT a ZIP file...if your browser downloads it as a ZIP, it's WRONG)

 

Install:

o) Install the latest Moto USB Driver

o) Install RSD Lite if you've not done so already

o) The jar file is an executable jar.  If you have your JVM setup correctly, you should just be able to run it like any other program.  If you do not have your JVM setup correctly, you should fix that.  :)

 

NOTE: You *MUST* have the Java runtime installed.  It must be Java 7 (or higher).

 

USAGE:

o) Run the RSDFlasher.jar

o) Locate your SDL.exe file in your RSD Lite installation directory.  NOTE: This will only be necessary the first time you run.

o) Select your FXZ's xml file.  It will look something like VRZ_XT926_9.8.1Q-79-1_CFC.xml but specific to your FXZ.

OR

 

o) Select your FXZ's zip file.  It will then prompt you for a directory to extract it to.  I suggest creating a new directory like "FXZ_xt1053" or whatever your model is and selecting that.  It will then select your FXZ's xml for you automatically after extraction. NO SPACES IN THE PATH!

o) Put your phone in AP Fastboot mode

o) Connect the phone to a USB 2.0 port using your original OEM cable (yes it matters)

o) When ready to flash, press the appropriate button for the type of flash you want (typically: FULL, KEEP DATA, or UNIVERSAL)

K35Gfso.jpg

 

o) To generate script only, check the Do not flash generated scripts? checkbox

o) To open RSD Lite with the script loaded but NOT start flashing automatically, check the Open RSD but do not flash? checkbox

o) Otherwise, once you press the button, the script will be generated, RSD Lite will open, and start to flash the script.  The program will close once RSD is opened.

 

WARNING: You must be fully charged before flashing!

 

SUPPORT:

 

In the event of a flash failure in RSD Lite, post the following:

-Model of phone

-Current version you are on (e.g. 9.30.1....NOT 4.1.2)

-FXZ filename you are flashing

-Which option you are trying to flash [FULL/KEEP DATA/UNIVERSAL]

-The contents of the SWDL.txt file in your RSD Lite installation directory

-Any other relevant information that will help me help you

 

o) NOTE: If you are unlocked and DOWNGRADING, please make SURE you use the UNIVERSAL option, NOT KEEP DATA or FULL!

o) If you need to reset the location of your RSD Lite SDL.exe, run this:

Q: My RAZR HD or M is stuck in AP Fastboot mode with a sticky bit failure.  Help?
A: 

Please Login or Register to see this Hidden Content

  Follow that.
 
Q: I pressed the [FULL/KEEP DATA/UNIVERSAL] button, and nothing happened.
A: Lots of potential causes for this.  Select the Open RSD but do not flash? checkbox and try again.  This time RSD Lite will open with the script loaded and ready to go, but, it won't try to automatically flash it.  If there's an error with the script, RSD Lite will tell you that.  But the biggest thing is making sure RSD Lite sees your phone.  Remember it must be in AP Fastboot mode, connected to USB 2, and using the OEM USB cable that came with the phone.  If RSD Lite opens without error and also sees your phone, click start to begin flashing.
 
Q: I've read this WHOLE OP...any reward for that?
A: You get a test!   :)  If you can decipher this riddle, you can maybe find some hidden, UNSUPPORTED, advanced functionality:
 
How do you control the shifting ambitions of an advanced user on the options page?

 

WARNING: Current state is BETA so proceed with caution.  It is now feature complete but may still have bugs.

And it's now been tested on my Moto X using the KEEP DATA script.  Worked perfectly.

LOL!  :)  When I get more time I'll get the FXZ Flasher working for you guys.  I don't yet know why it doesn't want to behave under Linux/Mac.  My goal is clearly to retire script programming for java.  House of Moto 3.0 is going to be reborn as a fully java app that will allow the Windows users to pick either RSD or Fastboot flashing and the Linux/Mac people will have Fastboot flashing available.  But until I can get the FXZ Flasher working for Linux/Mac consistently, I can't make that happen.  At least one side of the equation is now complete.

ROFLMAO!  Hmmm,  I will have to check it again then.  If fastboot is in the path it should in theory work.  But it may require being started as sudo and that's maybe where the problems arose.  Not really sure.  I'll mess around with it when I get some time.  I'm happy I was able to create this for the windows guys and gals.  Should simplify life quite a bit.

 

There are some tweaks I'll make to it over time.  I want to persist the SDL.exe path so it doesn't prompt you every time for it.  And maybe I'll see about working with the FXZ download directly.  So that it becomes: Download xyz.zip, download the RSDFlasher.jar, run the RSDFlasher.jar, open the extracted FXZ's xml OR open the zip file which would then prompt you where to extract it to.

RSDFlasher 1.1 released

 

o) Persist the RSD location.  Now you will be automatically prompted for it once and then we'll remember where it is thereafter.

o) Removed the ... buttons to select files and automatically prompt for them. 

 

TODO:

 

o) Still need to add FXZ extraction code.  Should be in the next version

o) Attempt to auto-detect the FXZ xml if we're running in the FXZ directory or are extracting the FXZ.  Should be in the next version

Not that kind of bug.  I was covering my bases because if the FXZ included the Windows/Linux/Darwin directories, they weren't extracting properly.  Not that this program cares one way or another.  I just wanted it fixed for, uh, future possibilities.  Cause I'm going to use the extract code elsewhere.

If you thought the HoM was easy to use then you'll be shocked at this thing. Lol. You can literally download an FXZ zip file for your phone, run this thing, and be flashing in a couple minutes. No need to extract first.

so then i tried the universal flash and got into a bootloop mode, just did a fdr, wipe cache, and rebooted. 

 

oh wait, son of a b! that actually worked! forget my stupidity, my phone is now on jelybean 4.1.2 and is on system 9.30!
