For those of you wondering why this is an FXZ and not an SBF they are basically the same thing.


  1. My PC won’t detect my device!
    All the drivers are installed, I’m stuck on
    “ClockworkMod Recovery”.
    I don’t have a recovery file.

  2. I’ve got the same issue as Tammy. Tried plugging into a rear usb port. Made no difference. Tried manually flashing but can’t successfully get the boot.img to write…error is “writing ‘boot’… INFOPreflash validation failure FAILED (remote:)”. The system.img was successful.

  3. I’m having the same trouble flashing the file. I get a CTD error when I try to flash. I saw a somewhere but I don’t remember where.

    Thanks for the help.
