    Yeah, I learned my lesson on not being prepared some months ago when Sarge was mis-informed with an update, put it on the forums here, and then myself and some others got stuck off the OTA path for a while. but, it's all good now. I waited some time before updating from 905 to 2233 as well. And after reading this post and a bunch of others, there ain't no way I'm going 235+.

    I don't blame you. I honestly thought I'd have a new phone in July which is why I went 235 and didn't care. Then come to find out the phone I wanted to get was a unicorn. Kinda left me in an ugly place but it's motivated me to improve upon the House of Bionic and now the House of Razr so it's not all bad. The fact that someone used the HoB to update their 238 install to 242 before I even know 242 was out just impresses the hell out of me. It means I made the HoB a truly useful tool and that makes me incredibly happy. My mission has been to give back to the community that helped me when I bricked my Bionic. And I think with a few exceptions, for the most part, that's been successful.

    Well here I sit with HOB installed ready to go, I've put off going above .232 just because there has been no end to the devolpment cycle for ICS so far.:)
    The thing is now I'm getting a itchy trigger finger and I really don't want to have to set everything back up from scratch.
    I guess my main questions are

    1. How stable is .242 using this method to keep data? I ask because .232 didn't do well at all restoring data using TB and ended up doing a FDR anyway.

    2. Just want to verify Blur_Version.5.9.905.XT875.Verizon.en.US(67242).zip is the name of the file the script is looking for on the SD card because I saw something about it getting renamed by accident when .242 was first added correct?

    3. what I believe is going to happen in my case is HOB is going to copy the .242 file to Ext SD, Launch RSD, put me in fastboot mode and FXZ me back to .905 using the non data loss .905 fxz file, then flash .242 in recovery, or something along those lines. Just verifying ahead of time, thanks!

    All the minor bugs with the script had been fixed by the time I installed last night. Yeah, you've got the right file. You're not ever going to be happy backing up and restoring with TB until they get it optimized for ICS. It's been said enough in this thread. Go get rom toolbox pro from playstore, best $3 or whatever you'll ever spend, 22 root tools in one app. Back up apps/app data only, no system, and do an FDR as soon as the install completes and then restore. If you're rooted on 232 you shouldn't even need to unroot/reroot, I forgot to last night and it came thru just fine.

    Yep, I sprung for Rom tool box. While it and TB share some common features both do totally different things and both are a must have in my book. I didn't even think about unrooting first but removed OTA root keeper and safestrap, I guess I'll do this tomorrow morning!

    like I said, I was rooted with razr's edge and the latest Super User GUI and binary which works like voodoo internally, but I forgot to temp unroot, and was ready to reroot as soon as it came up from FDR so I could restore my backups and redo my OC, but there it was smirking at me when I opened the app drawer, it's an ICS to ICS update, flies thru perfectly as of now. wait wait wait.....you're still on GB aren't you? I think my protected root got nuked even temp unrooted coming from 905 to 2233, but just run razr's edgae and BLAM

    OH, anybody else notice the bloat being ultra stubborn? most of it pops back even if you break the market link?

    Don't forget to go into system/bin and rename bugstogo.sh as bugstogo.sh.bak (or any nonsense extension) to defeat the bug system that reports user data and crash data to moto

    Thank You SamuriHL!! Your HOB worked perfectly to update my Bionic 223 early release to 232!! Thank you!! Only thing I'd add is in the instructions, that when you mean go step-by-step in order, that you mean in the HOB menu. May sound dumb, but it took me a minute or two to understand that's what you meant after reading and re-reading your initial post.

    Thanks again!!!!
