    I have the stock rom in a .tar at home. I can extract the Apk when I get home.

    I call shenanigans on TylerDurden
    I lost root after the update, I can't see how you wouldn't I even tried to root it again after and it does not succeed. Not trying to be accusatory, I have respect for you guys. I'm just pissed I lost root :angry:
    Any hope to get it back? Anyone have any suggestions? I know Verizon likely patched the exploit used to gain root on the Bionic as it was when we each bought one before this update. Are we screwed now if we lost root?

    you changed the kernel when you flashed the 5.7.893 update, currently there is no way to get it back to stock and that is why your update fails installation.

    @lasermole there are plenty of other people around here who have flashed the OTA and kept root access. It seems to be hit or miss.

    It's right off the root directory.

    I'm pretty sure you have to run it in stock recovery, power off your phone, press and hold Volume + and - then press power button, should take you to stock recovery

    Exactly, like I said in my previous post, that's how I figured out it was my missing swype.apk causing the issue. I should have posted the steps to get into stock recovery in my original post.

    And for anyone else getting a failure, loading the OTA update from the stock android recovery console will tell you where the failure is happening so you have a better chance of diagnosing / fixing the issue.

    Not good, that shouldn't happen! Did you try battery pull, and trying to get into stock android recovery again?

    Nope, he's telling the truth, no shenanigans. I was rooted and didn't lose root either after installing the OTA update. I used v2.1 of R3L3AS3DRoot and 43V3R root to root mine. I think some people that used Pete's originally and didn't properly apply 43V3R root are the ones losing root. You should definitely verify that the forever root was actually applied to the mount_ext3.sh before installing the OTA. But too late for that in your case. Some people in your shoes say that running the exploit found in this link gave them root back: can I re-root after 5.8.894 broke root? - Android Forums

    Alright now im frustrated, I did the recovery update to see what I was missing and it was zumocast. So I downloaded it from the market and rerun the update and sure enough, still says im missing zumocast. Now what?

    When applying mine, it says it's missing account and sync settings, but it was never touched. All apps are loaded and unfrozen. I've even done a factory reset and it still won't work.
