    I am also on .902 and have lost root. Kind of a nightmare what got me here but here goes. I was on .886 stock, rooted using Forever Root, installed Eclipse 2.0 and had been running that since it came out. I wanted to update to .901 but I was not able to update via P3Droids method. Was using safestrap for Roms, ended up disabling safe system which took me back to stock rom, I believe. Then I was still unable to update using P3Droid method, so I update using the OTA on my phone. First I was update to .893 and lost root, then this morning I had the option to update to .902 and still no root. Not sure how much sense any of that made, I am still confused myself...

    So I'm confused. I have .893, and Forever Root. Will NOT update to .902. Yes, I had some apps frozen, and yes, I thawed them. Didn't work. Did a wipe to factory. Still doesn't work.

    So nice to have this update from moto but I also lost root. Came from rooted 5.5.893 and now no root. Gonna play with root tools and see if any of them with work.

    EDIT: Just tried the updated root method for 893 and it failed. Well now waiting for a dev to figure it out. Good luck hopefully we see a method soon!

    After the factory reset, did you try doing a manual update from .886 to .893?

    If you need the file, you can get it here.

    After flashing that, you would want to root, then Forever Root, and lastly flash the .902 update.

    Make sure you are using stock recovery to flash these files.

    I tried it by clicking in the settings, about phone, system updates and says your device is up to date. Can i flash a newer version in flash recovery mode?

    Yes, use the files I linked in the post above. Copy to the root of your external SD card (sd-ext).

    To get into stock recovery: power off. Hold volume up and down together, and power on. Use volume down to highlight Recovery and volume up to select. When you get to the ! screen, press volume up and down again to bring up the menu. Then use volume keys to highlight Update from Zip and tap power button to select. Use volume keys to highlight the update file, tap power again and it should install.

    I would install the .893 update first, then boot up and root, and Forever Root. Then go back into recovery to install the .902 update.

    Keep in mind that Moto names their files after the version you are coming FROM, not the version you're going TO. Just so you don't confuse the two files.
