OK this thread is for the idiots like me who bricked their Razer Mamba.
Follow these steps to unbrick it:
1 - Disable "Driver Signature Enforcement" for Windows Vista & Windows 7 users
To disable Driver Signature Enforcement, restart your computer and press F8 before you see the loading screen of your OS. When you see the advanced boot menu with Safe Mode, Boot normally etc; select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement". Your computer should continue to boot from then on.
2 - Download and install the latest drivers and firmware updates
3 - Unplug your mouse and make sure the switch below the mouse is turned OFF (if it is on, the next step will give you a Code 10: Device cannot start). Now plug it back into the USB port and your OS should pick it up but say "Cannot install driver for this device" or something similar to that.
4 - Go into your device manager and look for the "Unknown Device". Make sure that the unknown device is your Razer Mamba.
5 - Install firmware. Right click on the Unknown Device in the device manager and select "Update Driver". It will then ask you if you want to search for the driver automatically or browse yourself. Select browse.
6 - Browse into this directory "C:\Program Files\Razer\Mamba\Firmware Updater\bootloader" and make sure that you check the "Include Sub Folders" box.
7 - It should pick up and install as "Freescale JM60 Bootloader"
8 - Run the firmware updater again and update your mouse & charging dock.
9 - Unplug the USB and plug it in again
10 - Your now good to go!
For those who have bricked their Razer Mamba, how did you brick it?
I bricked mine because my "Driver Signature Enforcement" was turned on in Windows 7 which led to the firmware updater crashing

Ill never buy another wireless mouse after my G7 was stolen at the bunker last year. Who ever took it only took the actual mouse and left the sensor and battery lol
I gotta say, LOL.
NEVER leave your property behind even though if you're only going to the counter to add more hours to your account/computer. Only leave it if there is a friend you trust and can rely on.
Nice this will be handy incase it happens to me
What has been bricked, cannot be unbricked.
Bork bork bork! - Swedish Chef on quantum entanglement.
That's not bricked, that's just fucked.
Yeah but the thing was i was at a cs 1.6 LAN COMP, and i was shaking players hands for GG and someone took it when i got back LOL it was funny yet random yet fucking annoying.
I wasn't just their playing casually and shit it was a fucking tourney which makes it that extra bit funnier
Erm , i bricked my mamba at first now its ok. Updated the mouse and the dock to v1.08. Now my mamba can't go wireless , it won't be detected. Any solutions?
Did you follow procedure and follow shit to the LETTER.
Did you try sync the mouse and receiver?
wow richy rich kids and their razer mambas
Yeah, but its a good toy.
I got mine because its wirelesse. I hate wired mouse.
Then I honestly have no idea. Did you flash your mouse first then the receiver? and are they the same firmware?
reflash them again.
make sure you press the button the mouse for 1sec, then press the button on the receiver.
As im a new user to this forum, I hope someone may be available for additional assistance.
Issue: My Razer Mamba is still bricked after following the above suggestions.
How my Mamba became bricked:
- My Mamba would periodically lag in a stuttering fashion once every other month. An easy fix was to reinstall the firmware and Drivers. Rather than using the Drivers I knew worked I decided to install the latest drivers. OOPS - I downloaded and tried to install the Drivers/Firmware for the Mamba 2012 and not the first addition. (Didn't know Razer had a second addition Mamba, I thought the 2012 driver was the latest).
- After flashing the firmware with the mamba 2012 firmware, my mouse was bricked. It will not even light up.
- I have done the above several times with small variations to rule out user errors. I have even tried these steps on both my Window7 64bit & Windows XP 32bit.
- By manually updating the firmware via the "Device Manager" I can see the device under "Universal Serial Bus controller" being labeled as " Freescale JM60 Bootloader" -- I have then tried to re-flash the ROM using the appropriate Firmware. No luck
- I have a friend with a Mamba and have swapped cables and batteries.
Drivers & Firmware versions tried;
My docking stating is working properly, though the mouse will not show any signs of powering up.
I assume it will have to be RMA'd, but I cant imagine I'm not the only one that has or will Download and install the Mamba 2012 firmware on the first addition mouse. Calling the second addition mouse "Mamba 2012" is deceptive. Making the Mamba 2012 drivers so they will brick the first addition Mamba is a bad company decision. Poo on you Razer!
Any help is appreciated.
PS. Keep the snarky go buy a logitec comments to yourself please.
