    I just upgraded using the .zip file from P3Droid and it took me up to 5.5.893 instead of what I expected which was 5.7.893. Is this the most current version? Will it be a problem? Am I still in line for other OTA updates now that I am on this version.

    Even more importantly...I also LOST ROOT even though I had already applied the permanent root method, which obviously DID NOT WORK!! So how can I get rooted again? I tried the one click method, the R3L3AS3DRoot and the 43V3R root methods but NONE of them worked now that I'm on this new version.

    Please HELP!!!!!!!

    Me too, but...

    I did the same thing, and If you haven't already, I used Foreveroots method #1to restore and reroot, worked like a charm! Then I just restored one of my backups

    Will applying this update effect receiving future ota updates from moto/vzw? Dont wanna apply this and then not be able to get the ICS update.

    Can't see why it would since this comes straight from moto and I am not rooted.

    There is an exploit to root 893 thanks to p3droid



    Download one click for 893 - unzip the contents and run the exploit with your Bionic hooked via USB in regular phone mode

    Thanks for the reply, but I tried that method several times and it failed every time. I am now trying the FXZ method (which is S-U-P-E-R SLOW) and hope that works and I am not bricked at this point.
