    OK I'm going to keep it simple. I manually updated to 901 via P3droids one click method (no root) to get back on the upgrade path and now manually updated to 902. What would be the best way to root at this point ? I have 893,901 and 902 on my sdcard.

    OK here's my .02. I had factory installed 893 on a month old phone. In anticipation of the update soon I did a factory. intentionally unrooting. I cleared cache etc and tried to do a totally clean install. I rerooted with the rota893 script. The install came and immediately i was in Ti backup uninstalling bloat and installing root apps.

    go here: Bionic Path Saver 1-Click Method - MyDroidWorld download the pathsaver and extract it, and run (runme.bat) with your phone in charge only mode and debug on.

    let it run, it will wipe your system and other things but you will maintain data (apps and settings)

    One part that scared me was when i got to a black screen that said "CG: invalid" cant boot or something like that. well, from there you just turn off the phone, hold vol up and down same time then hit the power button, this will bring you to a menu, tap down vol till you get to stock recovery hit up to select, once there hit update from zip and find 893 update.zip and let install.

    Once installed you should still have root access and be on 893. Unfortunately when I did this I updated via OTA to 902 and lost root and now have no idea what to do. But this will atleast get you to 893 with forever root. Good Luck!

    EDIT: grab this new set of files and add it to the same folder you extracted the pathsaver to and this should fix the root issue

    http://www.bionicforums.net/forum/d...ic-path-saver-1-click-method-3.html#post28250

    P.S. Overall, everything should take about 15 minutes

    That is very strange. Normally those types of errors indicate that something has been modified (system apps deleted, build.prop modified, etc.). At this point you should probably go with one of the pathsaver methods. Sargentmajord's method seems to be having good results.
