    Thats what I thought.

    If I unrooted prior to install of update would root work? My geuss Probably not.

    i haven't done a full diff, but i compared the filesizes of this (the official OTA) to the leaked 5.5.893 update from the web and they are identical in filesize in bytes. to be identical down to the byte is pretty impossible unless they are identical. unless the lnk provided above was the leak too, and not official ota

    I would say if anyone that does the ota and cannot root with any root method released then the leaked 5.5.893 does not match the ota.

    Doing a FC compare between that linked file, and the leaked 5.5.893 that I downloaded a while back... they are the same.

    Doesn't prove anything. Moto could have two different file sets fit within a container of the same size. Im not even saying no one can't root this ota. Just saying if they cannot by any current means then it must be different. Some people although claim they cannot root may not really what they are doing. Just saying is all.

    way more likely the users that cant root did something wrong. ive been in software business for 10 years, you dont have containers of a same size with different files within. they are teh same file. i don't know why this is even being debated, once a company releases a version of some software, whether leaked or not, its final. it's extremely rare and extremely bad practice to make changes and then release the same build number with different versions floating around.

    anyways, im done speculating or debating this. everyone can believe what they want :)

    Can you compare the md 5 sums of the 2? There is an md 5 checker in the market
