    Ok, so here is where I am at, I used REL3ASED ROOT to restore my Bionic to stock. I chose option "1" to root my phone when done with 4EV3R root. My phone is now rooted on .886. I never did weptop hack or any of that, didn't install any leaks either. I just used TH3ORY ROM and ECLIPSE. Whenever I go to receive the OTA Update, it never installs, it says "install failed". I can't get the update on my phone, any help much appreciated? And also, I used Safestrap, maybe that's causing something?

    Are you trying to flash it via safestrap? If so then it wont work. If you are manually trying to install the ota you have to use the stock recovery.

    This can be closed, my problem was solved after a few hours. I downloaded the update on stock, then updated manually so I could see what the error was. I had that "com.motorola.zumocast" error. I downloaded the file, pasted it in the preinstall directory, updated successfully, still rooted on 5.5.893.

    Did you move it to "/preinstall"?

    I can't get the OTA update to install. I am rooted and used the 43ver root method. I had to do a factory reset as this is my second bionic and they changed the sim card so I wasn't even on the update path. After reset the upgrade option was there. It went through the update process, rebooted, but install failed. (No reason given.). So, I'm stuck in 886. Any suggestions? My phone isn't causing me too many problems and I rooted for wifi tether, as well as exchange email. I don't want to risk losing that but want to get updates, especially if ICS comes out.

    rooting shouldnt affect the update, did you freeze or delete any pre-installed apps?

    I flashed back to stock so nothing should be frozen.
