    I guess I'm lucky. When I checked for the update and saw that it was available I pressed "download later" went to Voodoo and backed up, downloaded the update and installed with no problems then I restored root. I have the new radios.

    If anyone that has not taken the update yet that is on Version 9.16.9, could install from the Play store OTA Snatcher from Batakang then install it. Go into Settings> About phone> System updates and download the 9.20.1 Version and snatch it with OTA Snatcher. I have a backup of the 9.16.9 ROM and want to see if the Update installs completely with the new Baseband.

    So I am having pretty much the same problem, though I've never unlocked, just rooted. I'm on the MR2 release. I went into Titanium Backup and unfroze all of the bloatware, protected root with OTA rootkeeper, downloaded and installed the update and it fails pretty quickly. I checked to see if any bloatware was disabled in the stock apps sub-settings and didn't find anything. The installation bar gets about 1/4 or 1/5th of the way before throwing up a red exclamation point for failure, and then booting back into the OS.

    Any further ideas? I guess I'll just refreeze my bloatware and sit tight for the time being...

    OK, I got the new baseband now :)
    Flashed back to stock, left twrp installed, rooted, protected with voodoo, then took the update.
    I lost root this time but voodoo fixed it right up :)
    btw, my boot loader is unlocked.

    So what's the bottom line here. I just purchased a Maxx HD on Saturday, and the previous owner had already updated to 9.20.1. Can the phone still be rooted?

    If the Update was installed and your System Version reads 9.20.1 then you cannot Root from this point going forward(as of yet.) The updates resulting in System version 9.18.79 and 9.20.1 closed the Motochopper Root Exploit.

    Thanks, it does. I suspect as with past phones I've had, there will be a new exploit available at some point. I'm in no hurry, unless I discover I can't tether stealth-fully anymore on my unlimited plan.

    HELP!
    I am rooted and unlocked bootloader. I used ota rootkeeper to temp unroot and took the ota. My phone started to shutdown then rebooted into TWRP recovery. I can reboot system, but after a few seconds of my phone being on it automatically shuts down again. I'm basically stuck in a reboot loop. Any ideas???

    For future reference you can't OTA with TWRP installed. You need everything stock.

    If you keep getting loops, wipe data or flash back to 4.1.2 or try installing a ROM.

    Thank you, after I did that I wondered if having TWRP on there was stopping it. Luckily I did a backup right before so I restored that and all is good. Then I downloaded an app freezer to freeze the updater until I figure out what to do next. Can I download the update and install it manually through TWRP?

    First, thing you need to do is restore your device, do you have a TWRP backup of the stock 4.1.2 saved, it can be either System version 9.16.6 or 9.16.9. If not let me know and I'll post an FXZ for you.
