    Samuri , why you taken down 235 238?
    Seems like you're hinting people if you want to get stuck minus well get stuck @ 242 Lol
    If thats what you're thinking i totally agree:biggrin:

    I've clearly stated that. Those on 232 should stay on 232. Those on 235 or 238 should be moving to 242. And if you're on 235 or 238 then you had better already have the support for those added into the HoB. Hence, they have been removed.

    Ok sorry I just was reading it as you replied. I'm not sure your method will work as I don't have working data cable at this time. I am out of town for a while and only brought my charger and I dont have ability to go buy a data cable for a while.

    So can I install .232 over .2233 via zip file through stock recovery or do I have to go back to .905?

    No data cable, no workie. ALL ICS updates MUST be installed on top of 905. The HoB prepares your phone for flashing updates by flashing parts of the 905 FXZ and the boot.img file for the update you're installing. It does this by using a usb connection. Without that, you won't be doing anything to your phone.

    Ok, well thank you. I do have ability to put my sd card in an adapter and load file on it that way if that changes anything. So should I just stick with the .2233 for now and wait for OTA update? Do updates after .2233 improve battery life? I am seeing some people with 30+ hours out of the extended battery but I hit 15% after 10...

    It changes nothing. Without a USB cable you ain't changing a thing....OTA or not. Yes, battery life is vastly improved in the latest updates. I just did a factory reset today on 242 so we'll see how that goes. It takes a day or two to settle down. I also disable a TON of crapware. Like almost 20 things are either uninstalled or disabled.

    Moved from 238-242 tonight

    A few notes on my experience...
    Again I had trouble getting past my firewall and had to disable Norton on my PC
    After installing latest moto driver, had to restart PC to find my phone
    Instructions in OP IMO are much more comprehensive for average user to follow start to finish then in older versions of HoB

    Great job Samuri and THANKYOU!!

    Ahh, I just figured out I can disable those spamware apps! Is .242 like .235/238 where you can't go back to .905?

    Quick question... (and I admit to NOT reading all 199 pages of this post!)

    I am on .232 and rooted. Do I need to FXZ back to .905 prior to installing .242? I believe I already know the answer (I have to FXZ because all ICS builds need to start there), but am just confirming.

    Thanks in advance for your help!
