For starters credit for these files goes to:
The2dCour - For providing the 5.6.890 Fastboot files
P3Droid and TBH - For leaking the 5.5.959 Fastboot files


The Ultimate "Unbricker" (LINK IN STEP 2)<-The only file needed is in step 2.
This will bring you to 5.6.890 even if you are on 5.5.959
Directions:
1. Charge phone to at least 50%.
2. Download THIS (psouza4's 890 update script)
3. Extract the zip.
4. Open "Flash Verizon DROID 3 OTA 5.6.890 to phone_psouza4" folder.
5. Turn off phone.
6. Slide out keyboard and hold down M and Power button.(this will get you into Boot Mode Selection Menu)
7. Use Volume DOWN button to scroll the list down to "Recovery".
8. Use Volume UP button to select "Recovery".(you should see the !▲ and Robot)
9. Hold down Volume Up AND Volume Down.(this brings up the Recovery Menu)
10. Use Volume DOWN to scroll the list to "Wipe data/factory reset".
11. Use Power Button to select and once again to scroll down/select "Yes".
12. After the wipe is done return to "Boot Mode Selection Menu"
-Slide out keyboard and hold down M and Power button.(this will get you into Boot Mode Selection Menu)
13. Use Volume DOWN button to scroll the list down to "AP Fastboot".
14. Use Volume UP button to select "AP Fastboot".
15. Connect Droid 3 to PC using stock usb cable, if possible.(Your phone should say "USB Connected - OK to Program")
16. Back on your computer Double Click "CLICK HERE - Flash Verizon DROID 3 OTA 5.6.890 to phone.bat".
17. Sit back and enjoy as your phone is restored to 5.6.890.
-The script will copy/move/write the files to your phone, while doing this the phone will look like nothing is happening.
-But as long as the command window gives an "OKAY" for each step you are good to go.
-Your phone will now go back into recovery after all the files are sent and written to the phone.
-It takes maybe 5 minutes to copy and write files to phone, then another 5-10 for the phone to flash the files.
-The subsequent boot will be longer than usual and you will be brought to the "Touch the Android/Programming Screen".

*This method was used by me after I got a "Flash Failure (s)" message in the AP Fastboot screen after a failed flash using RSDLite.
** You will lose all data and have to re-program to get back on Verizon
*** You will not lose any Internal SD Card data

Instructions for use with Moto-Fastboot

Using Fastboot:
Download the Fastboot File
Download the Fastboot Binary
Unzip Fastboot File into a directory
Unzip Fastboot binary into same directory as Files

You will need to use Command to navigate to the folder you created and placed all of the files in.

Place phone in fastboot mode
Hold both M and power at same time
Push down volume until you get to AP Fastboot Mode
Push the up volume button to select
Plug phone into computer

Now you need to flash your phone:

This is a sample command "fastboot flash system system.img"

Possible partitions to flash:

logo.bin
recovery
boot
system
preinstall

You should not need to flash any other partitions.

I think the links for the fastboots need to be swapped. Thanks for the step by step instructions.

Hm, keep getting an error when I try to open the XML file in RSDLite. I've tried redownloading the zip(using 890) and still got same error when getting to that step. Any mistake I could be making?

Add: Error - "Check input file. XML file could be in wrong format or image files associated with it are missing."

9/15 Update: Worked after a third attempt. Was using .959 flashboot when I thought I was using the .890(swapped links and thought it was changed after post) Works now and love the update. Thanks for the upload and tutorial.

success!!!, back to stock after tons of metamorph play (and lots of restoring backups). I forgot what this thing looked like, :android-smile: One thing though, its easy for a novice like me to forget that the phone needs to be reprogrammed via *228 after this RSD does it's thing.
