    Yes I am a soak tester. From reading on these forums I believed they were skipping the soak test and just rolling it out due to pressure from Verizon. I guess that is not true. Soak testers are only ones getting it right now as far as I know. Sorry if my op was confusing. Good news either way...should be available for all soon.

    Is this update blocked for bionics that have updated the kernel/radio via cheesecake or other means?

    Edited my op and changed thread title to "soak test starting " but I guess you cannot change thread name. Sorry for it being misleading once again.

    if you already applied the update (the leaked one), why would you revert to reapply it? The 5.5.893 update coming OTA now is exactly the same as that which was leaked. So if you applied that one, you're good. If you applied a later one, 5.7.893, i believe that is the next update in line anyways, so wouldn't see any point in reverting either.

    looks like if you've flashed ANY of the leaked ROM's which updated your kernel/baseband you will not get the OTA, even if you flash back to 5.5.886 the OTA will not be delivered.

    folks who are on any of the leaks might as well just keep their systems in check for now...

    yes, all those leaks i believe will be the same as the OTA's delivered so we are fine. If you applied the 5.893 leak, just wait until the 7.893 OTA is officially released, and you can then apply that and will be back on the path. if you applied the 5.7.893 leak, then simply wait for the 894 update. if you applied the 894, just wait for the ICS update.

    Alright I have a question. I am totally stock unrooted right now, on no leaks. I am stock 5.5.886. If I root and apply 43V3R Root, can I still get the OTA from Moto and keep root? Or will it mess my system up or remove me from their update list? If I am rooted and do not change my kernel/radio I should be able to receive and take the OTA right?

    yes i understand this. but there was a big debate as to if the ota will install if you took a leaked ota. so i am working on an answer

    That one i'm not 100% sure on. I do not think moto has ability to see if your phone is rooted so that wouldn't remove you from the update list. Also, even if for some reason you don't get the update officially, it is leaked and available all over the web, so you simply download it and apply it yourself. That is what many people have already done.

    rooting does not chage your system or kernal, you should be able to keep root, if not you can just root again

    Yes I was thinking of doing it but are we absolutely sure the newest leak matches the official OTA that they are releasing? Will this prevent us from getting ICS if we apply it as a leak?

    right - i believe that if you are on 5.7.893 (or applied that one and then reverted to stock), you will NOT be able to take 5.5.893, cause the kernel/radio check is still there. However, when the update after 6.7.893 comes out, if's kernel/radio check will look for what you have from installing 5.7.893 and it WILL then work. The reason people that applied 5.7.893 now and couldn't apply the update that was leaked after, was because the leaks all checked for the STOCK kernel/radio. The official updates will not check for stock (unless its the first one, 5.5.893), but rather the kernel/radio that is respectively on whatever version you came from. THe only difference then between the leaked updates and the official ones are the checks that it makes to verify what version you were on. Makes perfect sense too, because when they leaked 5.7.893, they expected users to be applying it who were stock. same with 894.. thus the kernel/radio/webtop checks verified against stock, and not the version that truly preceded the version you were intalling.

    anyways, that was a mouthful, but i believe it's correct. as usual, only time will tell.
