    This doesn't bring the kernel & radio back to stock does it? Sorry I came in the middle of the conversation..

    The radio will be. As far as kernal I'm not sure. Can somebody get me a screenshot of 886 and 593 to compare with my current?

    So how did you keep root?

    Captain Crypto,

    Sounds great, but how did you root such that you were able to keep it through the 901 update?

    Inquiring minds want to know...

    Sorry for the delay but it's been a crazy week.

    I manually added the commands that changed the permissions on key root commands. I can't search right now but if you search for "chmod" it may come up. I'll post it this morning.

    I downloaded the first leaked OTA, and this new leaked OTA worked perfectly! Good luck!

    Again, sorry for the delay. I promised you an answer on the method I used to (what appears to be) permanently root my phone.

    I just did a search and found this in a post from BayouFlyFisher here: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...a-ice-cream-sandwich-bionic-while-rooted.html

    [EDIT] This is originally from p3droid. Sorry about that...

    I used this method:

    go to /system/bin/
    open in text editor - mount_ext3.sh
    add the following lines to the very bottom

    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/app/Superuser.apk


    You can also use this method:

    ADB method

    adb pull /system/bin/mount_ext3.sh
    open the file in your favorite text editor
    add the following lines to the very bottom

    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/app/Superuser.apk
    Save file

    adb push mount_ext3.sh /data/local
    adb shell
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/null /system
    cat /data/local/mount_ext3.sh > /system/bin/mount_ext3.sh
    chmod 777 /system/bin/mount_ext3.sh

    I used the Forever Root app before updating and I am running 5.5.901 rooted without a hitch.

    I too used "43v3rRoot a Rooted Bionic" (option 3), with success upgrading to 5.5.901 and retaining root access. The added system files are in screen cap #4
