Hi guys, I am in need of major help.
My droid Bionic is still on 5.9.902xt875. When I first got the phone I was afraid and reluctant to change user interfaces coming from a Droid 1. I ended up downloading ADW launcher, rooting it (no custom rom), and deleting a bunch of bloatware. Having had it like this for over a year, I'm unable to receive SMS messages (even with 3g/4g on) and I know I am not using the phone to it's max potential. Last week I tried to update to .905 and it would not work, presumably because I have deleted some bloatware.
That said, what steps do I need to take to be up to date and then rooted? I see Jelly Bean has recently been released, and through my research I need to flash my phone back to "normal" as a factory reset will not restore deleted apps.
If someone could post a list of things I need to do to be up to date and then rooted, that would be greatly appreciated. Links to guides in each step would be superb too.
Sorry if I'm asking for too much, I really don't know where to begin and I cannot afford to have a brick of a phone.
Thank you all
