    Ok....i keep reading different info so i will just ask...i want to try the ICS roms but ive heard that once i do i either cannot go back to. 905 or stock in order to get the offical update when it comes out...how can i get an ics rom on my bionic and what is the proper way to do it so that i can return to stock to prepare for the official? Please be specific so i can do it correctly ;-)

    Are you talking about a ROM or a leak? It looks like you're talking about the leaks.

    If that's the case, if you install .232 you can go back to .905 for the ICS OTA update. If you install .235 or .238 you can't, but you can go forward for any updates to ICS. I recommend installing .232.

    Have you ever installed an update before? Just seeing what you need to know.

    Update to 232 is my vote. You will have to rsd back to 905 when the official ics comes out. Just dl the update and put it on your sd card and boot into recovery.

    You are on 905 correct? You are manually updating your phone. When Moto updates your phone it goes like this: Your phone downloads the update to the root of your internal SD card. Your phone reboots and applies the update. That is exactly what you are going to do...only manually.

    Cut and paste directions, just to be fair to the OP.

    Download the 232 update from the first post in this forum. Do not download anything higher than 232

    1. Copy the downloaded update file to the root of your internal SD card.
    2. Now, turn off your phone.
    3. Boot into stock recovery. To do so, hold both Volume Up+Down buttons, then turn it on. Use the down button to scroll to the “recover” option, then press up to select. Once the screen changes to a new icon, hit both up and down again to boot into stock Android recovery. Use the Volume buttons to navigate and the Power button to select options in recovery.
    4. Select “apply update from sdcard”. Scroll to the update file you transferred in step 2 and select it. The update will start installing.
    5. After the installation is complete, select “reboot system now” to reboot your phone.

    And again, after you do this you WILL have to use RSD to FXZ your phone back to 905 to get the official upgrade. Not hard, everything is here and there are some great scripts by SamuraiHL to do it for you. And everyone will help as we will all be doing it too. But you need to know you are accepting that risk.

    Em, not the internal SD card, it's the external SD card. The one known as SD-EXT.

    And yes, just a staight install. You don't need to use any ROM tools (or even be rooted) to install it. You shouldn't even lose any data.

    Doesn't rsd-ing reset everything though? At some point, your stuff will get messed up/restarted from scratch

    SamuriHL's script will reset you to 905 without data loss. I would not go that route, I would blow it out but it is an option.

    I downloaded the .232 file and now get the E: Signature Verification Failed error.

    Anyone know what the heck is going on?
