    You can find everything you need right here. If you have questions or need help pm me. Lots of things can go wrong.

    Even if you never installed any leaked updates you'll need to be stock forever rooted to get to 901 rooted.

    we never said it didn't have problems. We said we fixed them with the 901 update; which you should know was an official update actually pushed out by verizon. Not a leak. Also I'd hack my phone and customize it whether it was flawless or not. It's just fun to me. I don't claim to be a genius but I am knowledgeable on the bionic. I don't really understand why you're even on this site If you don't modify you're phone. You may have a lot of know how with tech but if you ever do need help with a phone do you really expect people on here to help you after you harass a bunch of them? You're the only one who's thrown personal insults to others. All the other's comments were directed towards the Razr, not you.

    What you cannot seem to understand is, I don't have the time nor inclination to "play" with my phone. I don't want a hobby kit, that's not why I bought it. I'm glad you like to play around with electronic devices, and maybe you'll get a nice paying job doing that for a living, but I already have a badass job like that where I develop software for embedded devices. I don't need nor want my phone to be one of my "jobs" that I have to jack with to try this or that to try and make it work right. I paid for something that should already be working. Just because you had lowered expectations when you shelled out your hard-earned money, don't make me out to be a freak for expecting what I paid for.

    And just WTH do you care why I'm on this site? Is it your job or something to police these forums and tell folks to get out of here if you don't like what they have to say? Who's taking things personal here exactly?

    But, if you must know, some people have asked questions about what their experience with the Bionic has been, and I related mine, only to be called a liar, a hater, and clueless, unrealistic, and unreasonable because haven't even tried every patch or custom ROM under the sun. No, it's not me that's taking this personally. You and others like you have absolutely NO reason to care what kind of phone I choose to use, yet for some reason you're upset that I haven't tried yet another patch after having a 3rd Bionic phone sent me, and that I'm making my opinions public on droidforums Bionic forum.

    You need to come to grips with the fact that you cannot handle it when someone relates that they've had enough of a bad experience with this phone that they've moved on to another phone, and just let it go.

    I just said I don't understand why youre here. Not sure that constitutes as policing. You should post your opinions about the bionic, it's the personal insults to others posters that makes you come off a bit sensitive. I'm not upset that you don't like to modify your phone or that you don't like the bionic, I understand why you wouldn't want to modify your phone no matter what you do for a living. But it is a bit ridiculous when someone just complains, complains, and complains about things that they could easily fix with barely any know how, in about under five minutes instead of going through 3 or 4 phones. And It really says something for someone to go through three phones, be unsatisfied with all three, and are eager to get another phone made by the same manufacturer. That just doesn't make much sense to me. Please, get a Razr, or even a galaxy Nexus or iPhone (again my recommendation for you. Haha) and go to their threads. I'm sure they'd love to hear your complaints and how you want to do nothing to fix whatever it is you're complaining about.

    LOL. You know what I think is ridiculous?

    I'll tell you anyways.... it's that you think I'm complaining, when all I'm doing is letting everyone know what I'm going through, and that I have stopped trying to make my Bionic work after 3 phones and the OTA software update that was supposed to solve the problems according to Motorola and Verizon.

    You keep harping on the fact that I need an iPhone, as if it's some super bad awful insult. LOL! Only to you guys is it such a horrible thing to consider other phones, because its an Apple product. You know, I have owned and programmed software for Macs, PC's and Linux boxes. I'm not ashamed to say I have used and am very skilled with all of those different OS's, because it earns me top dollar on the job to know my way around all of them. If I was developing for phones, you bet your butt I'd know my way around an iPhone too. Your suggestions that the iPhone is so inferior that I need one because I lack the skills to use a Bionic is pretty lame. I outgrew those kinds of arguments in high school. Sorry if I dont subscribe to your little juvenile attitude of Team Bionic being in a holy war against Team iPhone or Team Nexus or any other phone faction. How much more ridiculous can you get?

    Lastly, I have never knocked you for liking reflash your phone, but you seem to want to throw it around as if its some sort of impressive feat. Let me tell you, flashing phone ROMs has got to be the most brain-dead function when it comes to working with electronics. A freackin monkey could do it. It's dull and non-challenging, but it is time consuming, and I refuse to have to do that with something I paid for. I don't have to do that with my car, I don't have to do that with my other household appliances, and I don't have to do that with most of the software that I use on my PC, so why should I have to do that with my phone?

    I am amused though that you judge folks here on droid forums by how many "phone mods" you can list. How cute... you need badges to feel good about yourself.

    I was just getting ready to take Abs advice and close it. Since Shadez is nicer than I am, it's open for now. But, sheesh I feel like I'm listening to my kids bickering back and forth.
