Ok so here's the rundown. I was trying my hand at making the elder scrolls:daedric runes font work for my phone. Got it pretty close, was using fresh type to change some of the preinstalled system fonts. (if you have any idea how i can install a custom font package that would be wonderful as well). but anyway, it asks me to reboot then bam, won't start up.

after reboot after reboot, i decide to say screw it, i pop it into recovery mode and factory reset it. I figure oh well, not much gets lost. turn it back on, still no luck. I give it another go, no luck that time either, i remove both the sim and the SD card and go again, still no money.

At this point i download the full fxz, and RSD lite 5.5 and i boot up into AP fastboot mode and procede to start flashing. Goes well till it hits about step 13 or 14 when then it says fail. I try to restart the phone thinking no big, it probably doesn't need webtop just to boot, now it says
Invalid CG OTV (CG: system): Invalid SP Data
Invalid CG OTV (CG: webtop): Invalid SP Data
Invalid CG Version (CG: webtop)
Invalid CG OTV (CG: webtop)

To make matters worse, regardless of what i try to flash ( at this point i'm not even sure if it's flashing) nothing seems to bring it past the AP Fastboot start screen. I've tried the minimal version, the full version with rsd lite. I've tried the standalone fastboot transfer method by moving each image file individually with the ADB daemon. What's infuriating is that each flash says success except for the full FXZ... yet it still never boots past the AP fastboot screen. I might be missing something, i was browsing the forum looking for answers nothing is coming up.

Ran across a few posts about a locked bootloader. Would that have any affect on this? Another few bits of useful info, my battery is full, i have an external charger, i'm running this on a laptop, i have access to a desktop but it's my room mate's and is in his room so i want to disturb him as little as possible, so unless it makes a profound difference i'd like to use my laptop. Any info would be great guys.

Looking forward to some help. I'm about exhausted.

maybe your fxz file is corrupt. have you checked the md5 on it? or have you redownloaded it?

I've downloaded it twice, and the md5 is correct. Ever heard of this before?

Solved it. For future reference, if the problem isn't solved with one click root you'll need to use the full version of the fxz. In addition, using the back of a desktop vs a Laptop makes ALL the difference! USE A DESKTOP.

I tried full fxz using all usb ports on my pc. any other ideas?

I was trying to factory reset using one click and got this msg. I have used this method several time prior and it worked with no issues. But this time it didn’t. Now I am stuck in fastboot mode.

A few people said to use rsdlite. Which I did and that’s when I got the msg below. When the program finishes is says “complete” on the PC bar states what is below on the phone.

Invalid HAB (CG:System Status:0X0035

Is my phone cooked?

I was also wondering due to the follow lines (Below) from the One-click Fastboot Restore does that mean I can take it back to Verizon telling them that it somehow got into the the fastboot flash mode and is now stuck there and they wouldn’t even know that it was rooted and flashed with every Th3ory team rom up to 1.7? Lol… Or am I just dead in the water and have to file an insurance claim to get another Bionic?

So, I have a similar message in AP Fastboot

AP FastBoot Flah Mode (S) (Boot Failure)
0A.61


Battery OK
OK to Program
Transfer Mode:
USB Connected


Invalid CG OTV (CG: webtop): Invalid SP Data
Invalid CG HAB (CG: webtop, status: 0x004E)
Invalid CG OTV (CG: webtop)

What I did was, i think, wiped data, cache, and dalvik and flashed a Th3orypak on accident before the base rom. But I did all this through the Droid 3's safestrap (i read a forum on xda where people were saying it worked and you could get to it with a powerdown and volume up and down + power button, BP Tools) I have tried RSD lite 5.5 and it fails right away. I have also tried DH's R3cov3r and it gets all the way to the end and powers back up and then i have the same AP Fastboot Flash (Boot Failure). :'( I have tried all the diferent things said in this thread...out of ideas and my wife is breathing fire down my back...not good
