    I lost my root during the new update. I'm wondering if there is a way to get my root back. I used one of the one click root programs before (Pete's?). Is there a newer updated one that works? Or a different way to root it? Thanks

    Welcome to Droid Forums!!

    And sorry to say I know next to nothing about the Bionic. But I moved your thread to the "Bionic Hacks" section in hopes that someone with more knowledge on the subject will be able to chime in.

    I believe you need to downgrade to 5.5.893, perform a forever root, then reinstall 5.9.901. I can't get the current root exploit (zergrush) to work in 5.9.901, but you should try it before downgrading to do it. Here's the tool- http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...70-r3l3as3droot-43v3r-root-bionic-v2-1-a.html If that doesn't work, it's a bit more complicated. This Bionic Path Saver 1-Click Method should let you downgrade to use 43v3r-root. I posted a thread http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...ade-path-retaining-root-901-installation.html if you have any problems. Good luck!

    Does the one click path saver wipe the phone? I am on 901 unrooted. Would love to root, but do not want to reset all my apps, widgets etc. Thanks!!

    Hi, I am currently on 5.9.901 and would like to root... which method worked for you? The "R3L3AS3DRoot and 43V3R root for the Bionic v2.1", or the "Bionic Path Saver 1-Click Method"? Thanks in advance!

    The Bionic Path Saver actually performs a forever root during the process. 5.9.901 can't currently be rooted, so you just need to run the one-click script. This will downgrade you to 5.5.893, perform a forever root, then ask you to install some updates. Make sure you don't install 5.9.901 until after everything is complete, and you should be fine. Here's the script- Bionic Path Saver 1-Click Method (I hate to be that guy who links to his posts everywhere...) I posted a thread here with a lot of info if you run into problems. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...ade-path-retaining-root-901-installation.html
