I think I might have put a GSM CM10 version of JellyBean on my Razr should've paid more attention to what I was doing.
I can't get into clockwork mod to restore my backup and I have no idea how to fix it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hello and welcome to the forum!
What ways have you tried to access CWR? Does the power/volume down work to reset the phone and then hold the volume down at the red M?
Well the problem is I can't access it, I can't reach my homescreen and I can access regular recovery by holding down the volume buttons and power. But I already tried that method. I'm not sure as to what my other options are.
Maybe HarleyDude will stop by this thread...he is up on this stuff ...
What system version are you on? If you can access stock recovery, the best option might be to restore to stock with the recovery files...
I was on 4.0.4 and when I went through stock recovery and tried to factory reset I still got the same problem. But maybe I'm just not educated in it enough. First attempt at rooting the RAZR done it with many other phones just never this one.
I thought I heard my name mentioned ..
If you did put a GSM ROM on the phone, it's not gonna boot even with a FDR, and I don't think you're gonna be able to get into CWR. Your only option would be a restore through fastbooting. Easiest way to fastboot is with Matt's utility, [TOOLS] Droid RAZR Utility 1.8
How did you get CWR installed on your phone, with bootstrap or safestrap? I'm guessing not safestarp, as that would give you the option to get into CWR before you bootlooped, so ..
Once you restore through fastboot, you can then root, install CWR, and restore your setup if you wish. I strongly suggest you investigate safestrap once we get you set up, as this will avoid problems like this in the future
I downloaded a completely separate file and went into my files installed it manually. I never used bootstrap or safestrap which I'm guessing was a bad idea.
This is the file I downloaded RazrTouchBlack.apk
I should've done more research on it but that's the only file I downloaded to get Clockwork mod.
What you used sounds like a bootstrapper type app. Bootstrappers were the original bootloader hijack for the moto devices. Safestrap is just an updated type of bootstrapper, it gives you the option to get into CWR on every boot. It also allows for installing ROMs to separate partitions, leaving your original install intact.
As I mentioned, the only way to fix you now will be fastboot. It's not difficult, just don't rush it, let the phone do it's thing and finish up, even when the utility says done.
Okay the link on that thread for the utility didn't work for some reason is there an alternate download link?
Found it. Thanks for your help.
