this morning i decided to try out steel droid rom and so far this has been the biggest fail ever. im not a noob at computers or anything, i work on computers for my business but this one raped me.

i put my phone into AP fastboot for the first time, loaded up RSDlite and when i chose the 5.6 xml and pressed start i got an error saying "mdm file larger than expected; phone connected..."

and since then i have had absolutly no luck gettin this ****in thing to work. tried using the mac way, cmd bootstrap on windows, and the older 5.4.4 RSDlite and ive still got a ****ed phone.

if anyone can point me in the right direction to get this working that'd be great!

Whatever file you are using, try the other one. That error you are getting usually means the version you are trying to flash doesn't match your current one.

Ouch.

Have you already tried to use RSD and flash the whole thing at once?

I ended up writing a .BAT script (windows) that automated the flash of each partition and everything worked great after!

I was able to unbrick mine from this, all I had to do was MANUALLY extract the contents of the zip file, then select the xml in rsd and it worked fine!
