    I was one of the ones who installed the leaked updates and as a result can not receive the official update. Could I take my phone back to a vzw store and have them flash everything back to stock....ie radio and Kernal?

    I just flashed my phone today. If you look at my recent thread "factory reset" it will tell you what to do. Sorry I can't give you a direct link I am on my phone

    That does not take you back to stock as the op is asking. It does take you back to stock with the exception of the radio and kernel that you were flashed to.

    If you installed a leak, just the windows one click method, restore your phone. Skip all sign in stuff, check for update. Install update. Worked like a charm for me. Need help. Pm me.

    Hang loose for a little while. Moto is aware of and working on this issue.

    Tried it last night, I honestly have tried CWM, flashing my phone back and all the steps in dhackers guide - used his same files, etc and I can't install any update (5.6 or 5.7). I'm stuck on the stock system and radio, but not kernal (.893). Last night I wiped my phone and tried to install the update....negative.

    Status 7 error every time.

    I really do love the Bionic and the fact that I can read my screen in sunlight, but since I travel 90% of the time and the 4G hotspot is my sole source of internet I need it to work (last month I used 74 GB of data).

    I'm actually considering returning the phone via AMEX purchase protection and getting a Nexus but don't want to make the investment in accessories again (car dock, 2x extended batteries, external battery charger, holster, etc)

    I know I can call and get a CPO device via VZW but I paid retail (hate contracts) for my Bionic and I want a new device...not a used one.
