    I have a question, do you have an app called terminal emulator. If so open that up and type "su" then enter. The $ sign should change to a # sign. If it does then your root is working. If it doesn't then your root is not working. If you don't have the app you can download it from the market.

    Yeah, I think you lost root somewhere along the way. You will have to re-root.

    And by reroot do I follow the link that was posted on the first page? If so which step? Or do I open back up Pete's Motorola Root Tools and just click root my phone again?

    Hmmmm so I think I'll follow step 1 since it says restores system to .886 then I will follow the link that you just posted.

    If your on 893 pete's tool will not work and there is no way to go back to stock radio/kernel 886 - are you on 893 ?

    Download this root exploit by p3droid, unzip it in a folder - make sure your phone is on, under settings/applications/development USB debugging is checked, and your connected to the computer via USB - then run the runme.bat in the folder you unzipped earlier and let it do it's thing

    I posted instructions on the last page, just because your system version shows 886 your kernel and radio are 893, that mod is irreversible so I believe you will still root as if your on 893, you will know for sure when pete's method does not work for you - either way the 893 method is a one click just as easy as pete's

    Alright and then once that is done doing it's thing, do I just go about installing the ROM? Or what would the next step be?

    The Purity ROM says that it is built off 5.7.893 OTA. Do i need to do something special to get that?

    No, the only thing a ROM can't replace is the radio and the kernel (locked bootloader) so if you have already manually updated to 893 your kernel and radios are updated, the ROM should take care of everything else

    One last easy question. I cleared all the stuff, installed Purity and it ran for awhile and now I got a "Install from sdcard complete." but on the top of the screen it says "Apply update from .zip files on SD card. Do I have to do anything else? Or do I click Go back and boot it up?

    I'm not sure, I don't have that rom yet. Were there steps in the op of that thread that stated about having the zip on your sd-ext?
