    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.
