1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Is there any benefit of upgrading early to .901?

    Seeing how it's not an official update, it has helped some with data issues, me included. It was an accidental leak. No one knows for sure what the next update will be and when. 50/50 whether it will help you or not.

    I think that if you are already on. 893 and not having any issues the update would not benefit you very much.

    I was on .893 and not really having major problems with data, but I flashed the .901 update and data is stronger and switches between 3g and 4g more easily.

    Does this require being rooted?

    My Bionic is one of those that didn't have a data problem to begin with. .901 seemed to help my battery.

    No, you don't have to be rooted. Basically you move a zip file into your phone's SD-EXT card, power off and reboot into recovery mode. The Bionic does the rest, with the whole procedure taking 10 minutes (6 of which is the phone rebooting after installation).
