    This is from his tweet stream, about an hour ago as of this posting. I know nothing more than what it says in the tweet. My guess is he could very well be talking about the Bionic, he has been working hard on that one for awhile and we are due any second now for a soak test.

    I suspect its pretty much every current moto phone. I suspected that would happen given reports of a leaked. 894 patch killing root and breaking forever root.

    Now the issue becomes take the update and lose root for the radio and camera fix, go with the leaked .893 forever root compatible firmware and stray off the official OTA path , or wait for a new root process to counter moto and then take the update?

    I'm REALLY starting to get PISSED OFF!

    That describes the situation very well. I went with the 893 leak and am very happy. I hope that is enough to block the official OTA. If it isn't I am open to suggestions to block it. I intend to sit on 893 until the dev's counter moto.

    You can use TiBu Pro to freeze the updater.

    But of course. This shows why you are a Droid Ninja, and I am only a Junior Droid. Appreciate the reminder, I am good to go now! :icon_ banana:

    What is the name of the process to freeze to stop updates. Also I was under the impression that if you have the leaked update it wouldn't pick up or download the official updates. Is this wrong?

    updater 2.3.4 Not sure 100 percent sure on your other question but I believe that if your apps and system files are all in the right place you will get the update. I don't think it checks for versions. But that is just my general impression reading the internets, I do not know first hand.

    On the D1 we modified the local build.prop file to trick it into ignoring an update.

    How does it block it forever? Can't you just sbf back to an earlier version then root?

    If they killed root via a kernel modification, then you probably cannot SBF back since you can't roll-back kernel. If it's a SYSTEM partition change then yes, but we don't really know what is breaking and preventing root yet.

    For internet from the bionic IF and a big IF here.. we get a pushed auto-update, and lose root. PDAnet and some other paid apps allow USB tether. You can then broadcast a wi-fi from your PC for your household. I forgot what the program was for that though.. if I remember I'll pm you, it was free and you could set passwords and all that stuff. May be able to just google wifi broadcast PC and find it. (I used this method on my D1 to tether the wii since it could not connect to an Ad-HOC that the D1 broadcasts
