This happens all the time with flashaholics and if this has happened with your Droid RAZR M, we’ve something good for you. Not so long ago, Motorola pushed official stock firmware for downloads so the bricked users can restore their device and start everything from factory state.

2. RSDLite (It’s also available in the post)

III. Unrooting the Motorola Droid RAZR M:

1. Download both the files to the Desktop of your PC.

2. Turn OFF the device.

3. Reboot it into Fastboot mode. To do so, just press and hold the Volume UP+Volume DOWN+Power buttons together.

4. Select Fastboot from the options appearing on your screen.

5. Connect the device to your PC via USB cable.

6. Extract files from RSDLite archive and put them on your Desktop.

7. Double-click on RSDLite executable file and it should launch.

8. Click “…” in the RSDLite and select the ICS firmware file you downloaded earlier.

9. Hit the Start button and wait for it to finish.

10. Once done, the device should reboot.
