    Do I have this correct..since I did the stock update to 5.5.893, acquiring the new radio/kernel, then went to th3ory2.0. Now if I flash a rom based on 5.7.893 is that everything Id get in a stock update...do I ever need to do a stock update again (assuming moto doesn't put out another kernel)?

    You can always get the latest system via a custom rom. To get updated radio or kernel requires ota or a flash equivalent.

    5.7.893 is out with an updated radio from 5.5.893.

    Howe do I get this update and what does it actually change? I'm running stock rooted 5.5.886 and when I hit the system update button it claims my device is already up to date :(

    I did and I see ota over and over (over the air) yet there seems to be no over the air update :-\ so let's try this again. Is this an actual over the air update or a leak requiring a manual install. If it's a leak then it's not over the air yet now is it......home boy

    Ok thanks for clearing that up, really wish everyone would quit calling it an ota update if it's a leak. Really confusing
