    I will NEVER flash a cheesecaked leak again! You gotta feel bad for these guys Either they are bricked or off the update path. Do they not have a safestrap , and with our safestrap would we still be in the same boat or does it protect us ? Did Moto or Verizon send out that update to screw with us? You goota wonder? :icon_eek:

    For one thing, they are off the update path. Hopefully if an update appears then they will have to install it manually. And if they don't like what they have, they run the chance of having a bricked phone trying to go back.

    There are Bionic owners that have flashed the .904 update and want to go back to .902. At least they can.

    I don't understand...How can you not just FXZ or whatever the RAZR uses? With the Bionic, it was dicey for a bit having to hunt down cdt.bin files and the like, but it wasn't IMPOSSIBLE.

    Reading the thread that's mentioned in post #3, it bricks your phone. Nobody has gotten it to work successfully.

    Yes, I read the article too. But the missing details are why it is supposedly irreversible.

    It's due to the locked bootloader that both the RAZR and Bionic have.

    Probably because it hasn't been in the wild long enough for a dev to get ahold of it, see exactly how it works, and create a pathsaver method for it.

    If I am not mistaken, the 5.9.901 leak for the Bionic was considered irreversible, until the Bionic Pathsaver method was discovered. Up until that point, some folks had "bricked" phones that they were finally able to revive.

    That's what I was getting at. It's really a timing thing.
