I was previously on the 5.7 leaked update and now I am back on complete ota rooted 5.5.893. please check out this thread: Getting back on the OTA update path - RootzWiki
I was the first one that got the OTA 5.5.893. I also reflashed back to 5.5.886 right after to see if I would get the OTA again to help the dev community (I did not) but kept the radio and kernal. I then flashed Th3orys Kin3tx and even though it said I was on 5.8.893 I still had 5.5.893 radio and kernal.
Just went back to 5.5.886, rooted and forever rooted. Flashed 5.5.893 then just flashed 5.9.901 (that was all nerve racking) hoping it would all go through. Didnt have one hiccup at all. Kept root during the whole process.
Now just to put everything back where I had it (which is the longest part of all this flashing). I will miss the ROM though as I hate having all this bloat.
The testing begins as I have data drops non stop. Crossing my fingers

You bricked your phone attempting to get out of 5.7.893 also? Glad i'm not the only one! I just got a replacement phone today and was like "sweet, somebody figured this out." So I thought I'd be the genius I am and fix the kernal version before sending it back to Verizon so they wouldn't see what kernal I was running...and I somehow bricked it so bad that I can't even bring it back with 43v3r root. I keep getting an error message on the AP fast boot screen that says "invalid cg version (cg: boot)." Any ideas on how to fix this? Has anyone sent a bricked phone back to Verizon before and not had any repercussions from Verizon...?

Im almost in the same boat (I think). Even putting th3ory on at 893. Problem is I dont know where to get 886 and I deleted 893 off my phone. Can you pm me the links to get them back or post them with a small walk-through? THANK YOU.
