    People have already uploaded the updates to .902. There is one from people coming from .893 and the leaked .901. All you guys have to do is forever root using one of the available methods and then update to .902. The threads are around guys.[​IMG][​IMG]
    I was on the the leaked .901. Rooted as well. The files are out there already guys.

    Not knocking your efforts or anything but in case you didn't know that those that are on 901 can upgrade to 902 through the posted zip file in another thread. I was on 901 that I installed and was forever rooted. I downloaded the mentioned zip for users on 901, installed and maintained root. Now on 902 and only took about 15 minutes. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?p=2005512 here's the thread, post #38 for the link. Instructions are a few posts after that.

    The fxz file is only for those who lost root during the update or bricked there phone while on. 902 not for update purposes

    Unfortunately I did not maintain root. I assumed I had forever root because Last update I performed I maintained root.. Appparently i did not have forever root. Or did something wrong.. Both are highly possible.

    So there is no going back to .893 for me. Hopeful someone will release a root method for .902!!

    Are your apps frozen? Unfreeze them and try to update
