EternityProject Brings Moto RAZR GSM ICS Update and Different Method to Flash Firmware
For starters, they’ve posted the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the GSM version of the RAZR, available immediately, in their thread about it here. Along with the download links is instructions on installation and screen shots. As stated, this is for the GSM version of the phone only, so those toting the CDMA model will have to wait just a little bit longer for theirs. Also, if you plan on checking it out, make sure you fulfill all the requirements before flashing.
Additionally, the team has brought an alternative to flashing official Motorola firmware that does not include the usual RSD. The process is pretty simple:
1. Copy the FastBoot package into the ROM you’ve extracted
2. Boot in AP FastBoot Mode
3. Connect your RAZR to the PC
4. Execute “FlashME.bat” (Windows) or “FlashNIX.sh” (Linux)
You can find the download links for FlashME.bat and FlashNIX.sh in the original thread. Kholk and EternityProject say that this method will work with all bootloaders although it is aimed toward those who have the 0A.6C bootloader. So users can just download and go if they want to.
