    Will I be able to flash TWRP back on after I take the update? Also, will I need to reflash the JB extreme theme? Thanks btw

    After the OTA you can flash TWRP custom recovery. This OTA does not erase your Data, therefore there is no need to reflash the JB Extreme theme. gl:thumbup:

    Okay, silly question, but if I have a completely stock phone, the update shouldn't have any problems, right??

    OK thanks. So will I be able to just boot up the Razr HD utility 1.20 and flash TWRP again or will that utility not work anymore after this update?

    OK so I ran this, installed moto stock recovery. Temp un-rooted and took the update but it keeps failing. I check the build number & baseband number & I'm still running the old. Any thoughts? The only thing I thought was just trying to flash the stock recovery again to be sure...

    There are quite a few routes to go, so nothing is exhausted and we can get this OTA on your device somehow, so don't worry there. I'm not sure what version you have so I'll post both OTA's this for System version 9.16.6 and this is for 9.16.9, download the file and save to your External SD card. Go ahead and use OTA Rootkeeper and Temp Un-Root your device, then Reboot> Power + Volume (-) down, once screen is black hold Power = Volume (+) up, use Volume down to select Recovery and click Volume up. At the dead Android screen hold Volume (-) down and quickly press Volume (+) up this will put you into Recovery> scroll down to the option to install from external storage and press Power. Installing the OTA from this angle, if the OTA fails, you will receive a message as to what failed. Which if something does fail the next step I would suggest is doing an FDR which will wipe everything, if Root is lost which it shouldn't> just use Motochopper to restore Root. Then do an OTA Rootkeeper backup and install the OTA. If it fails again, post and I'll post another route.

    Thank you so much! I will give this a try today when I have some time & report back as soon as I do. One question: the above part I bolded. Do I reboot or just shut down then start the power + volume sequence? Or do I need to start that in an actual reboot? Thanks again!

    Also, should I verify that I did flash the stock recovery before trying this?

    So I shut down and tried to boot into stock recovery but it just takes me to the dead android with the red triangle with (!) in it. Should I run the .bat file again and try to flash the stock recovery again?
