4. Launch RSDLite from your program menu on your pc/laptop
5. Press the “. . .” button next to the box labeled “Filename”
6. Load up the SBF file you extracted from the MR download
7. Plug your device into your computer RSDLite should recognize your phone right away if you installed the drivers from this link i provided
8. Press the “Start” button
9. Be patient...takes a while...will reboot a couple times so grab a beverage of choice...use the restroom...take out the dogs...whatever...

looks like a pretty neat phone. how do u like it?
Its a beast of a phone had ALOT of crazy random reboots though atleast 8 just today.... other than that its been great a great device im glad i can finally be back on Motorola havent had a single proble with any devices from them since the OG Droid.

EDIT: Found out that the random reboots are not a software issue but a hardware issue... apparently the battery cover/back of the device needs to be replaced because it is faulty and doesnt hold the battey in place so it gets loose just enough to cause the device to reboot... Sprint said that they are aware of the rebooting issue, as well as the others, and that the software^^^ will be released officially sometime next week.

No you are not the only one. I have one, but I'm on a Rooting detox. Lol. Coming from a Samsung Vibrant on T-Mobile (where we had to hack the hell out of the phone just to keep it current with the rest of the Android phones and fix issues that Samsung takes an eternity to update), I'm just sitting back and enjoying the stock rom for a while.

Once a sure-fire method comes out and has been tested repeatedly, I may try rooting again. But right now, the phone is too new and shiny for me for break it. Lol.

Haha I completely understand that... And that is why I will never buy samsung ha... I'm just tired of having to go over to xda all the time because we have way better devs on here and we have such a better support community who are willing to help ya know?
