    Dautley. I was the lug nut that was talking about renaming files. Don't read or do any of that. I was tired and over thought the process which Samurai had made idiot proof. I guess I am just an above average idiot! :)

    Here is what I did:

    Download HoB 5.5, components 1.0. and the support file for 242. Open the downloaded files in the same order and everything will install where it needs to go. Then open the house of bionic folder that was created on your desktop and launch the program. It its that simple! Run each step in order and HoB will install 242 a you described in step 3. Good luck!

    LOL! well a couple of things going from .232 to.242, I had copied the .242 zip file (not folder)out the package and the MD5 didn't match so deleted that and let HOB do it. While intalling the HOB package I was almost thinking it had got caught in a boot loop (rebooted three or four times) and I think after sitting for about 40 minutes on a blank screen picked the phone up and did a battery pull and manually booted into recovery and I manually flashed the file on the SD card and .242 with all my data came up so good deal:hail:

    I wish I remembered exactly the steps that gave me trouble, I guess I shouldn't have taken that Ambien before starting:icon_eek: but it all worked out well. Anyway, here's the log file.

    At the risk of...

    ...showing my abject noobness again :D, let me float a question:

    If we suspect 242 is the soak test version for the OTA; and those who've tried it find it to be good; and we're probably pretty sure the OTA will be the LAST update we'll ever see for our Bionics......

    ...why would we wait for VZW to get off their *****? :p
