    Um yes we know that. It doesn't revert the kernel or radio because it cannot. This whole thread is about reverting the kernel to get on the update path for the OTA. Using the method above does what you say, reverts the system software to .886 and leaves the radio/kernel on 5.7.893's version. 5.7.893 is not the final version that will come out so while your radio/kernel are good for you now, they might be better in the official OTA. And because your kernel is not stock, you might not be able to take the OTA. That is the whole point. anyways, it doesnt matter since moto will fix they said if the real ota fails.

    I'm trying Multiupload. It spreads it out to 10 different sharing sites. The first upload stopped at 600 MB. I don't know what happened because they didn't say there was a file size limit. If it doesn't go this time I'll get a month of mediashare so everyone here that wants to play with it can download it. The free service there is 200 MB sendspace is 300. I'll get it up somehow so you can take a look at it. When it's up I'll give you the link.

    What are u uploading? The original reply about uploading was debunked as it was.just the stock sbf stuff. If its that, it doesn't revert the kernel so its nit what we need

    yes your kernel was updated, you are in the same boat as us. You just have to wait it out for the official OTA and see if it works. If it doesnt, will have to wait for a solution or a leak that lets us update the kernel - or send it back to moto to flash

    you need to flash the radio.zip from the stock recovery, NOT from clockwork recovery. power up and hold both up and down volumes. you'll get a menu popup. scroll down to recovery, then hit up and you'll be taken to recovery. in there, hit both volumn buttons again, and apply radio.zip from there. when i did it, i first restored sbf back to stock first, but not sure that is needed.

    If you ever want to take future OTA updates, we possibly will not be able to take them cause of the kernel change. If that happens, moto can flash and fix. It's costly only in terms of the time it will take to send and get it back, they dont charge you

    so i just came across this

    "In the case of the stock Bionic, the [FONT=inherit !important][FONT=inherit !important]Linux [/FONT][FONT=inherit !important]kernel[/FONT][/FONT] is v2.6.35.7" taken fron here http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-bionic-hacks/185171-what-do-alternate-kernels-do.html

    [FONT=Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif]and i also have a co-worker who has a stock bionc and his is 2.6.35.7. the rest is different but ya. so from what i can tell, i could be wrong, but as long as you are still on the 5.5.893 you still have stock kernal? am i correct? i mean i did the 5.5.893 update and [/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif]my kernal is: 2.6.35.7-g68606e6 [/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif]vwm736@il93lnxdroid43 #1[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif]so i should be good correct?[/FONT]

    No - that is not the stock kernel. the 2.6.35.7 part is same, but the other parts of it are not what came with stock. You have the updated kernel and if you tried updating the latest leaked OTA it will fail.
