    I was basically stock with root and deodexed so I just went into CWM Recovery and used Advanced Restore to just restore my system since it was the only thing that was changed. Then I applied the forever root method and installed the update to .893.

    If you have a backup that is stock/root. All you have to do is go into CWM recovery and under backup and restore choose advance restore then restore just the system. This way you don't lose all your data. You could FXZ through rsd lite but there really isn't any reason to. I went to .893 to get the newer baseband and kernel then back using p3droids method and didn't have to wipe data.

    Edit: when I say stock/root backup I mean one that has an odexed system.

    With the .odex files still in the /system. Did you make a backup right after you rooted?

    All you have to do is restore the system from that backup. Then you can upgrade to .893. Then you can go back to .886, but with the baseband and kernel from. 893.
