    Unhappy So I rooted my bionic...then it updated and my root is gone..but I can't reroot...

    So I'll try to keep this as clean as I can, I apologize if it's not.

    I rooted my droid Bionic using pete's one click (all so I could use my phone as a hotspot). After a few weeks my phone updated and without thinking I installed it. Now my phone doesn't have the root, and I still have superuser as a system app (I CAN NOT delete via manage apps...) It wouldn't be a problem if I could UPDATE my phone to ICS but everytime I try to install it, my phone says that It can't and I think it's because superuser is still installed as a system app. I've tried the system restore and even going as far as deleting everything from my internal storage.

    I've tried to reroot my phone using this ( How to Root Droid Bionic on Mac or Linux! | Droid Bionic Root ) but it continues to fail at step 2 every try.

    I am pretty tech savvy but I'm no where near a great tech guy, but I cannot figure this out to save my life!!!

    So am i pretty much screwed and either have to buy a new phone, or stick with this old update or what?


    Any help would be absolutely amazing!

    Oh and if this is the wrong place to post I sincerely apologize!

    Are you familiar with RSD Lite? You may have to fxz to stock .905 then apply the update. That would probably be the easiet and quickest route to take here, but I'm by NO means an expert. I'm just a guy who can google and follow the directions of the experts, haha.

    Would you mind giving me a link on how to do that? Cause I am by no means familiar with that!

    And thank you very much for responding!

    P.S. It might also help to know that I mainly use a Mac computer...But I do have access to a windows 7 if that is my only option

    here you go [GUIDE] Easiest Step-By-Step Tutorial For Upgrading Your Bionic To ICS - xda-developers.

    that is for windows. i don't know if there is an rsd lite version for mac. i'm sure there's another way to do this on mac, but it's beyond me. that's the guide I followed the first time i used rsd lite, and it worked just fine for me.

    just follow that guide to step 10, no further, and you'll be on stock .905. you can accept the ota update after that and it should install just fine.

    haha, you're welcome.

    and i don't even know if there is such a thing on here, but i just pointed you to someone else's guide, so i wouldn't say that's worthy of that anyway, lol. i'm still a noob who just lurks, mainly. i saw your post and thought, "hey! i may actually be able to help this time instead of ask questions!" good luck, let us know if it works

    FXZ to 246 not 905!! Then you don't have to download the update OTA.

    My bad, i couldn't find a download for that. Still, it worked, just took longer.
