    Exclamation Stuck as writing radio-cdma on unroot

    I have been having radio issues (no service at all) so i decided to go ahead and flash different radios and roms to see if it would fix the issue. I have factory reset it and now I am just going to unroot/restore my phone to return it back to Verizon. heres the guide im following: http://forums.androidcentral.com/ver...axy-nexus.html

    I keep getting stuck here:


    MacBook-Pro:mysid-jro03o marsblaster$ ./fastboot flash radio-cdma radio-cdma-toro-i515.ff02.img
    sending 'radio-cdma' (3724 KB)...
    OKAY [ 0.597s]
    writing 'radio-cdma'...


    and it gets stuck like that forever. I have waited 10+ minutes to see if it fixes itself and it doesn't.

    I believe I still have access to Fastboot,clockwork recovery and my operating system, so I can do anything to try and fix it.

    Any help?
    Thanks in advance.

    I have a Mac. I've used the method found on this page. You will find a video along with written instructions, and download links for the compiled files that you need for the methods to root and unroot on a mac. There are scripts written to simplify the task.

    Unroot on a mac. "One click method"

    Root on a mac

    http://www.androidrootz.com/2012/08/...ce_21.html?m=1

    I have done it the android central way, but it took me a long time with trial and error. Mostly it was clicking or not clicking on the enter key. The combination of video and script made this a lot easier.

    Yes, I have used this tutorial before, but it gets stuck "writing radio-cdma" for a little bit, it writes radio-cdma and then at the end, it says verify- radio-cdma: unknown (something like that). It says I'm now at stock and unrooted, but when i check to see if im unrooted, i still have super su and root checker app still says i have root access.

    Edit: Terminal command:

    sending 'bootloader' (2308 KB)... OKAY
    writing 'bootloader'... OKAY
    rebooting into bootloader... OKAY
    sending 'radio' (10496 KB)... OKAY

    Device version-cdma is 'unknown'.

    From what I can see in the terminal commands, it seems the system, userdata, boot and recovery have not been flashed so that's what makes you still have root. System.img hasn't been overwritten yet. On the part where it takes so long for the other files to be flashed, could you perhaps use another cable or port for it? Worth a shot because sometimes those are the ones that are faulty

    Well, I switched out the cable for a different one and now it is stuck on writing Radio-cdma. Its not finishing unlike the first cable. Its been stuck for around 10 minutes. I dont know if this has any effect on the flashing process, but in fastboot it says " CDMA- unknown and Carrier Info- None"

    What should I do now?


    Command:
    Welcome to the restoration script by 1KDS
    This script will restore the original 4.0.4 firmware,
    Remove root access on the device
    and relock the bootloader

    Turn on USB Debugging in settings > Developer options
    With the device booted up, connect the USB cable now
    Press enter to continue:

    * daemon not running. starting it now *
    * daemon started successfully *

    Ok i followed the tutorial up to flashing the "radio-cdma"... it just hangs/doesnt finish writing the radio-cdma-toro-i515.ff02.img;It seems like this is the main issue, is not being able to flash radio-cdma.

    I noticed you used 1kds. I know the link that I included was on a different site although the original script was from 1kds. 1kds hasn't updated the script for 4.2. 2. I wonder if that is effecting you. That site is and has just recently updated the script for 4.2.2. Also the OP for that site has left his mail address on the bottom of that web page. He encourages people to email him, if they run into trouble.

    I suggest you download his updated script. Follow the exact written instructions, watch the correlating step on the video before and after you take a step. If it still doesn't work, email him. I would copy and paste your script from the terminal into the email.

    I would also download any file the script is telling you it can't find. If those files are actually there, the OP should be able to help you.

    Be warned people can be very rude at xda. They can help, but you might get a bruising while your at it.

    Have you succeed in flashing already? I've a feeling it may be a hardware malfunction or corrupted partition if after eliminating cable, ports, etc it still exists
