    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.

    I'm not sure where tp76 went but hopefully that works.

    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
