    There are a couple of threads that talk about upgrading to .901 but to do so, you have to downgrade to .893 and start over...I will paste them both in here for you to look thru...

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...ade-path-retaining-root-901-installation.html

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...ng-901-heres-everything-you-need-what-do.html

    I was rooted .893 with forever root and had upgraded to leaks thru Cheesecake...this worked well for me to get to .901 (which you can stop at .886 or .893 or continue to .901). Initially, I had issues with forever root sticking when I installed .901...but after attempting again and getting caught in fastboot with cdt error - I did finally get it completed, however, I recommended that you start with realbbb's fix download in the P3 script.

    Good luck...
