    First of all what build is your bionic on? I know. 893 and .901 can't be rooted you need to go back to. 886 to obtain root.

    Gotcha I'm on .893, Do you have a link for the .886 and how do I apply that to the Bionic, Last root I did was back with the OG Droid.

    Forever Root is reversible. The point of it is it allows you to maintain root through an OTA update, not that it's literally "forever" and can't be undone. Just FYI.

    This thread has info and links for how to root .893. After that you will want to apply the Forever Root hack so you don't lose root when .902 is pushed. I followed those steps and it worked fine for me. My last phone was an OG Droid as well. ;)

    They shouldn't need to go through flashing all those files since they are on .893 already. It is rootable, trust me I have rooted 2 Bionics on .893 with the one-click method described here and it works fine. It's only .901 that's currently unrootable. Tested the dropbox link there and it's working as of 1/17. Also I wouldn't advise installing .901 at this point since .902 is currently being tested and may be a different path.
