RSD Lite for Mac and Linux

Screen Shot 2016-07-14 at 5.24.12 PM

So many people have asked me if RSD lite Program works on Mac or Linux and every time i have to tell them “Nope only windows”. I was on XDA developers and a user named Liboicl uploaded a awesome script that turns Motorola Firmware XML files into fastboot commands for a linux machine. After Downloading and checking it out I decided that I would also make it work on Mac and give it a little face lift. 🙂 NOTE This script also checks the MD5 of each file and compares them to the XML file list.

How to use RSD-FLASH.SH file on your Mac or Linux machines.

  1.  Download the RSD-Lite-Mac-Linux.zip here. scroll down the page a little
  2. Extract the zip to your desktop leaving you with a folders called RSD-Lite-Mac-Linux
  3. Download the Motorola Firmware you need from HERE or HERE then extract all files in firmware.zip to RSD-Lite-Mac-Linux folder.
  4. open a Terminal and CD to folder RSD-Lite-Mac-Linux
  5. Command to flash device is ./rsd-flash.sh [name of xml file you want to use]  EXAMPLES flashfile.xml or servicefile.xml
  6. press enter to start the flash from terminal
  7. watch for any errors. If no errors at the end of the script then press enter to reboot the device.

NOTE

Motorola devices must be in bootloader / AP fastboot mode to use this tool.

  1. Power off device
  2. hold volume down and power to boot the device into AP fastboot mode so that you can flash.

If you have a windows machine that is fine also as you can still use RSD lite form Motorola

One Awesome Android Accessory is the NFC Ring. If you own a NFC enabled device you can program the NFC chips in these rings to do many cool task for example Unlock your phone, launch a web site, start playing music, share your contact info, and so much more. When you link the NFC Ring with something like the Tasker App the possibilities are endless. These Rings come in the 3 styles shown above and in just about every size. I think the price point at 50 dollars is also fare. if you would like to check these out you can visit the site HERE. Also i would recommend searching on Amazon for NFC Rings if you don’t like the style of these 3 rings. I am planning on picking one of these rings up really soon and may do a review on it once i have it in hand. Please comment and let me know if any of you have tried a NFC Ring and how you liked it.
