    [HOW] To Flash SBF/RSD Method

    [HOW]
    To Flash SBF/RSD Method

    Thanks to Steady Hawkin


    Using SBF/RSD Method:


    How to install the essential files needed to flash back to an original stock ROM SBF.
    This is necessary when you get stuck in the proverbial "bootloop".

    Step is similar to this tutorial


    Part I




    Part II



    Hope this time it will success

    Flashing the SBF:

    Download SBF: here

    Flashing the SBF:



    • Run RSD Lite as Admin
    • Power off your Xoom, press volume up and power at the same time until the device starts. It should boot with "Starting RSD protocol support X"
    • Connect your supplied USB cable (I say supplied because 3rd party cables can cause issues)
    • Browse to the SBF file you extracted in the filename box (use the ... button to select)
    • Click on Port 1 and select Show Device. If it looks similar to the below image (Device and File Properties are both populated) you are all set
    • Click Run



    Hope it help and wish you good luck

    Sorry to revive an old thread but I can't seem to get anywhere with ADB so I'm trying RSD and keep getting the usual "cannot retrieve initialization values, blah, blah" message. I have tried 3 different versions of RSD Lite, I have uninstalled/reinstalled applications and drivers, I've tried a 32-bit system vs. my current 64-bit system, and I still get nothing. Can anyone help?
