    See, Samuri? Told ya we needed a FAQ! Now if the powers that be would only sticky it, before it disappears to page 2 and no longer serves its purpose.

    Q:
    Once upgraded to these leaks can HOB root my phone for me? If so which versions can it root and do you lose root swapping between leaks?

    From the HOB op http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-bionic-hacks/214902-downgrade-902-no-app-data-loss.html
    How does it work?

    o) You launch the HouseOfBionic.bat
    o) A menu of options is generated dynamically for you depending on what version you're using.
    o) Once you make your selection on the initial menu, an additional menu of choices is presented.
    o) The HoB script will then allow you to:
    - Push the update zip to your sdcard-ext
    - Reboot to AP Fastboot
    - Flash a script in RSD to prepare your phone for the update you're installing
    - Walk you through the steps to install the update in recovery
    - Optionally install root
    o) All of this is controlled from a dos batch file using command line RSD to flash the rsd scripts and adb to push the update

    one question i had, that i dont see here is, will my data/apps be wiped by the update to the leak? You recommend backing up, which is obvious, but if all goes well does the data stay?

    Good question and I'll add it to the faq. The answer is that data will not be lost if you install it properly. Remember that leaks are just updates not yet released ota. So if they wiped out your data they'd have a lot of screaming people to contend with. The HoB was designed from the start to move from update to update without the need to fxz and wipe data. So if all goes well, all data remains. I tell people to backup in case it doesn't go well and for whatever reason they need to fully wipe the phone to get it working properly.

    Possibly off-topic, but I'm having some issues with this process... I have downloaded the Moto-fastboot and the necessary components of HoB. What do I do now?

    SamuriHL has given us executable files, so run them, on your windows desktop, in the order listed - really couldn't be done any more efficiently, great work SHL!

    Btw, I used HofB to go from 232 to 246 last night on Windows 8 and it was flawless - mucho gracias SamuriHL for this fine piece of work!

    Hey partner
    I've read and reread and want to verify. I don't have USB 3.0 I have xp still. Does 7.2 still have rsd 5.7 or do I need an older version of HOB To go from 232 to 246. I am still at work and haven't opened 7.2 yet to see. Just trying to get all my ducks in a row while I'm in town where I have 4g. Thanks for making this and answering all these questions.

    I split everything up now so there's installers for the main HoB (7.2 currently), FXZ, RSD, and the update installers. Some people are having issues with RSD 6.14 so I added a new link for RSD 5.7 to the OP to see if that helps. But if you have the old COMPONENTS 1.0 installer kicking around, you can just install 7.2, the components installer, and the 246 update installer and you're golden.
