    5.7.894 kills ROOT. The recently spotted 5.8.894 seems to retain ROOT based on posts I've seen. I've also read that the RADIO/Baseband files can be rolled back, however, the system kernel cannot. The kernel update is the potential "official" OTA update killer; however no one will really know if it is until the "official" OTA is actually released. This is what is also preventing folks from applying the 8.893 leaked patch if they've applied a previous OTA "leak", even if they'e rolled back the SYSTEM and RADIO to .886 -- the kernel mismatch.

    Anyone taken the 5.8.894 leap yet? How is it running? any obvious improvements?

    Thanks,

    When I first updated everything worked fine...after awhile I restored my phone to stock then attempted to root and I could not. I had to wipe everything to reroot and forever root. I'm now back to. 886...I may try to update again.

    lol..i didn't get more specific to my question due to my excitement on how he did on flashing 8.894.Dunno if he flashed it by using Cheesecake apps or downloaded the leak..:biggrin:
