    Is there a method for rooting .902? I received the the .902 update and it seems I didn't keep root. Super User grants root access to Bionic bootstrap and titanium backup. However, when I open Titanium it tells me I don't have root access. I didn't do forever root be updating. Thanks in advance

    You'll need to revert back to .893 using P3's One Click, which you can find in my signature.

    After that, download and use ROTA893 to forever root while you're on the .893 update.

    Then install .902.

    Haven't tried it but everywhere I've seen updating with frozen apps will not work. You can try it no harm should come except it won't update.

    Spent all day trying to upgrade from 5.7.893 to 5.9.902 and maintain root. No deal. I've tried everything. One click, psouza, Pete's motorola root tools, ROTA 893, tehroot v1.1, windows one click fastboot, etc. Nothing works. The phone is not recognized at all. I've followed all of the direction on three different websites about going back to 893, rooting, and then going back to 901, 3etc.

    Nothing.

    I'm stuck at stock 902 so now I can't restore ANY of my data. I can't even restore a backup since I can't get root. And I CAN'T STAND the ads!! I've had ad-free since my OG.

    This sux.

    Ok, I got one for you guys.

    While trying to update from 893 to 902 when I got the OTA this morning, it screwed my phone up royally. The only way I could get it to boot was using an old backup of Th3ory's Rom. Not one of my other backups would even successfully restore. So, I do that & try to do a factory restore from the settings menu, but it kept reflashing Th3ory.

    After MANY failed attempts & getting the "Flash Failure" message in recovery, I finally got it back to factory & unrooted with One-Click. 886, I believe it was. I wasn't thinking & updated via OTA to 902, successfully. Well, as you can guess, I was so brain fried from everything, that I forgot to apply 43v3R Root.

    No biggie, I figure, I'll just reflash 886 with One-Click & root from there. NOPE. Every time I reboot my phone, I get the Flash Failure message & have to do the Normal Powerup option in Boot Recovery just to get back into my phone. Every time I try this, it does successfully wipe the phone, but I'm still on 902. I've read online that I need to flash something, anything, successfully to fix it, but I don't know what/how to flash anything without Clockwork & without being rooted in the first place.

    Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? How do I fix the Flash Failure error from jamming up the works?

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! I've been messing with this thing since 9:30am EST!

    That's the problem, Boot Recovery pops up that Flash Failure message & will not let me downgrade. Been trying to for the last couple hours.
