    I've updated the OP to remove links to the HoB thread. I will keep the contents of this FAQ here for those that need it. The House of Bionic has moved to a new home.

    Was the thread deleted? I just went to your FAQ and noticed the links to your HoB thread are gone. Your FAQ says to search for "House of Bionic". I did that and the first page of results did not redirect me to your thread.

    I haven't been on today, so something may have changed that makes this more logical. But from my perspective the FAQ tells me to search(which is fine) but I can't search for it and find it(at least not on the first page). If I'm a random user looking for the HoB I definitely won't recognize the thread because I remember it being titled something like "905 update FXZ without losing data". I recommend you make this more intutive. I know what thread I'm looking for and I can't find it. So how would a common user find it if they wanted to start using HoB?

    Not sure what search engine you're using, but if you Google "house of bionic" it's the very first result. I imagine Samuri was trying to be respectful by not posting a direct link to a competitor's forum.

    Since I am being bombarded with PM's about this, the reason I am not posting a direct link is because it is not my privilege to do so, only SamuriHL or one of the Mods here should post that information if they want it to be here.

    I am not trying to be rude, but that is how it is. I understand why SamuriHL moved HoB there, and he will be missed.

    If anyone has any issues with their Bionic, Verizon Service, or HoB, please feel free to ask or PM one of us who frequent these forums, we will try to help as much as we can. I would suggest starting a thread with your question, and if you want to draw a specific person's attention to it feel free to PM them a link to it, sometimes it takes many to solve an issue.

    I used the search engine in the forum.. since this forum, afaik, has been the home for HoB. Why would I google it when I should clearly expect to find it here? But I read through the last 25+ pages of the "moot" thread. Effectively everyone with any experience with the Bionic has left the Bionic section of df.net for droidrzr.com.


    Already I can see crickets around and its very quiet, dark, and cold here. I guess this effectively marks the end of the road for the Droid Bionic at droidforums.net. I guess it was a good run while it lasted. Ultimately it seems that more and more people are screwing up the good things in the world for the rest of us. Oh well.

    I had pointed him in the right direction, I didn't want to post a link in forums, so I sent him a PM with the link. I know there was a fix for this, but can not remember what it was, which is why I pointed him in the direction of those who can help him. I think it had to do with the version of RSD you used, I never upgraded past 5.7, I heard 6.x had issues with flashing the ROM correctly, and causing errors like this. There is an option in HoB 8.0 I do believe that can fix the AP fastboot. make sure the update is in teh root of your SDCard-ext.

    Repair AP Fastboot ERROR on the House of Bionic menu. Not sure what I need to do to make that option more obvious...

    I have read all of the instructions and FAQ (aka not a pure noob). When I tried to install the .246 update, I got a "Status 7" error. I am on a stock .905, rooted, and have defrosted all apps. The only other change I have made to the stock is that I have installed bootstrap. Is that the cause of my Status 7 error? If so, how do I fix this (if possible, without losing data or apps)?

    Then your RSD isn't working. Add a NORSD file and try again.

    Tried that....same problem. Here is the full error message I'm getting:

    Verifying current system...
    assert failed: apply_patch_check("system/bin/logwrapper", "4a63fec78956def045b442910a754fa640db8f5a","16ec2444c44c8e2a73a969cb49834d6f6fe229d7")
    E:error in /tmp/sideload/package.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted

    Does that help anyone understand where the problem lies?

    I'm sorry, but, no. Your flashing is failing if that's what you're getting for an error. Either you're skipping the flash step (and I'm not talking about the apply update step) or it's failing and giving you errors that you aren't reporting.

    The consensus of educated guesses seems to be mid-Q1 of 2013, which would be around February.
