    So I'm 4ever rooted currently. I really want this update. However when I search nothing happens, it just keeps searching. I've left it on for hours and nothing happens. I'm reading success stories about people who get the "Not Available" message and then do a FDR and immediately receive the update. I'm just curious as to if I can do one of these and if I'd retain root after? To unroot I'd basically have to do a complete reset anyways, so I'm wondering if I can just backup everything and go for it. Thoughts??

    Do you mean the official 5.893 OTA?Did you flashed any leaked OTA before?

    Ah, I wanted to add that I read people who were having issues had out of date apps in the market. So after updating them, they found the OTA. In my case, I have one unupdated app, Citrix Reciever, which is of couse a bloatware app. It's not frozen or anything and it doesn't give me the option to update, only open/uninstall. I tried uninstalling and re-updating, but still no luck. Thought this was interesting...

    Floating around somewhere is the ota you could download. Put it on your sd card then flash it through stock recovery.

    I see,i think you aren't fully 100% stock...if i were you... i have to use option 1 (just to make sure) and if you eager to get the latest official OTA update(5.893).Most of them having a successful flashed using option1,try it!

    Yeah I'm aware of all the leaks out there, but I'd rather just get it from Verizon. I do like your idea of trying option 1, would like to get others feedback on this if it's a bad idea or waste of time? Seems like it might work though...

    A REMINDER: once your device booted up,do not log on to your google acct. first,skip all. Then turn your USB to charge only mode and turn on USB debugging(w/ check),then continue till the 4ever root applies.

    Good to know. I'm assuming there will be a step by step process in the root program describing all of that as well?

    Though I would like to know if anyone else has any ideas before I go through with this. I'm one of those super careful with how I mess with my phone people and just don't want to make this more complicated than it needs to be...

    If you're back to 5.5.886 from a leak, can you not use the system update?

    Also, don't hijack my thread son!!

    There's no way that you can go back to 5.893,you said that you have flashed the 7.893 already,you have had the same kernel like 5.893 has.Unless,we had a talented Devs. that can unlock the bootloader>

    Still haven't really received an answer and I know SOMEONE out there knows...

    So in the event option one of 4ever doesn't work and I do have to do a FDR will it retain root/happen without any issues?

    I registered just to answer your question. I am forever rooted and did a reset and held onto my root. Only problem is it gets rid of super user app but you can download the app from the market after.
    I did the reset after the new ota so im sure it will be the same before.
