    So I took things on my own and tried this out. [This was done on Windows 7, not sure about other systems]

    First off download the Bionic Path Saver 1 Click Method
    Bionic Path Saver 1-Click MethodRun the runme batch file with USB Debugging On, USB Mode to Charge Only, and Check on installing Unknown Sources
    After everything is said and done and it tells you to install the OTA's .893 and .901, DON'T!!
    When it sends you into Recovery, Just Reboot System
    After that, go to the same Path Saver folder and click on runmebbb batch file
    It'll be kind of the same but this time it'll root AND forever root during the whole process
    When it tells you to install the OTA's, this time, do install them. .893 first IMMEDIATELY followed by .901


    Voila :D [I'm not sure if you need to run the runme batch file but that's what I did so be safe then sorry. If you think just running the runmebbb file the first time, you can go ahead and try. Besides, you can always do it again.]


    And btw, I didn't lose anything when doing this. Everything stayed the same.

    If you have the runmebbb, you don't need to run runme first. You can jump straight to runmebbb and keep root.

    where do you find the runmebbb file? I downloaded the Bionic Path Saver 1 Click Method and that file is not in it. Only the runme.bat file.:blink:

    Yes, if you've verified that you are forever rooted on .893 OTA, then just install the .901 OTA

    Here you go, http://www.mediafire.com/?6ni8ezoh2lff9h8 <--- runmebbb file to whoever asked

    And in my case, if I wasn't forever rooted in .893 but rooted and tried upgrading to .901, the root would be completely gone and it would go to stock.

    Stock rooted or custome


    Can I install the .901 OTA over a custome rom or does it have to be a rooted stock?

    Started at 5.7
    Ran the runmebbb script & lost root, but got to 5.5 again
    re-rooted, but now when i try to apply the update893.zip in recovery, I get the following:


    Verifying current system
    assert failed: apply_patch_check(MTD:boot:838608:a3d...
    E:Error in /tmp/sideload/package.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    Any ideas?

    So sorry to some of the people here. I just posted this topic in hopes of giving some users an easy way of upgrading to .901. I have no technical knowledge :frown:
