    I'm new to rooting and i was wondering is it safe to use the sticky 4ever root method after update or I got to wait and see before trying to attempt it? also is there a way to unroot the bionic back to the original way if in case something happens? Thanks for your advise

    I am not sure actually. Did you take the update already? I 43v3r rooted then applied the 893 update to keep root. If you are going to root and start installing roms look into using safestrap (remove bootstrap first), it comes in handy Bionic Safestrap (Bootstrap / Recovery) - RootzWiki . You can unroot with 43v3r root depending on what system you are on. And if you brick your device entirely you will have to FXZ . I have never bricked, so I am not familiar with this process but here is the link [FXZ] Droid Bionic Stock 5.5.1_84_DBN-55 - xda-developers

    You can unroot the the phone, I personally haven't gone through the process but I believe you have to restore to you original nandroid with bloat on it. Be sure to have a backup of that main stock rom. Like he said above, I now reccomend safestrap over bootstrap because it allows me to test roms and everytime your phone boots you have the option to go into the bootmenu (like clockwork mod but two different "systems). It's much safer, and very reliable.
