    Soft Bricked - best buddy hating me

    Hello there,

    I convinced my best friend to buy an atrix. All went well until I tried to set a custom rom.

    He left home yesterday with his atrix bricked....

    It seems it's a "popular brick" as I can't boot it. "Fail to boot 1"

    I went through the following steps successfully :
    - rooting
    - recovery installed

    At the rsdlite 5.3 flash, It messed up with 98 % freeze at "Error switching device to BP Pass trough mode".

    I found some posts telling there's an unlock file but I just can't find it anymore. (rest in peace MU)

    Please help me,

    Thanks !!!

    Did you unlock the bootloader before installing custom recovery and trying to flash a ROM ????
    UltraDroid and ManDroid like this.

    If you need help, and I appear to be offline, shoot me a msg on Gtalk, or PM me and I'll respond as soon as I possibly can!!

    +1 to the above ^^^^

    Go here - [TUT]Unlocking Bootloader and Installing Custom ROMs - and read the entire tutorial at least three times. Also be aware that unlocking the bootloader instantly voids your warranty as well as tripping a fuse inside the phone which burns, leaving a visual mark which a competent technician can discover in 2 to 3 minutes. There is no way to relock the bootloader once it's unlocked. Finally, there is no way to install a custom rom on the Atrix 1 (original Atrix) without unlocking the bootloader.

    Shouldn't he try to recover the phone from the soft brick first before unlocking the bootloader? Not to correct anyone, but I think he should try flashing the sbf to beguine with?
