Thought I would post my experiences on the 5.5.893 OTA. Two days ago I checked and the update was available. My phone was rooted(one-click), never applied any leaked update, had some bloatware frozen with TiBu. The only other hack was the Webtop hack to allow Webtop use without the dock. After downloading update, tried it without touching anything - failed. Unfroze the bloatware - failed. The webtop hack requied Bionic Bootstrapper, so I uninstalled Bootstrapper - failed. At this point I was pretty sure the failures were due to the Webtop hack. Scoured through this forum for a while last night and did the following:
Other than homescreen and widgets needing organized, all is back up and working. Haven't had the update long enough to comment on its effectiveness, but a quick test of the camera definitely shows improvement. Haven't yet tested to see if Webtop works, but I'm guessing it won't till I reapply the hack.
- Full backup with TiBu
- Downloaded R3L3AS3DRoot and 43V3R root for the BIONIC v2.1
- Followed instructions and chose option 1 to restore, root and 43v3r root
- Phone now back to stock
- Check for, download, and apply 5.5.893
- Update successful, root retained
- Restore with TiBu
A huge thank you to all the forum members, devs and modders that made this all possible!!!
