  • When the prompt comes up, press Setup
  • Place a check in "I agree to the Motorola Terms of Service" and then press Next
  • When the update prompt comes up, press Download

  • ***Your phone may appear as if it is completely off for a little while but leave it be it will turn itself on and continue***
  • Let the update finish and then it will reboot back into your system
  • Congratulations! You now have the official 5.5.893 update installed and are back on the official OTA path and forever rooted

Credit to all developers of the zergRush exploit, to realbbb (from Rootswiki) for discovering the Boot Mod, and anyone else who participated in making this all possible.

For all interested, this is an expanded version of what I did to revert from 5.7.893 to 5.5.886 (bricked) so I could apply 5.5.893 and be on the upgrade path again as well as be fully functional (i.e. have no more flash failed error).

Also, the guide is actually from rootz wiki, posted in the same thread I referenced in another thread when I first reported that I had reverted.

Your dropbox link to the radio.zip has "androidforums.com" in the beginning in the url which needs to be removed in order to correctly download the zip

sweet!!!!!

I have a few questions tho:

Do I need the SDK installed to do this?


Also, should we revert back to a stock 5.5.886 system before doing any of this? I have heard some people have had issues because apps like zumo cast had been removed. Currently my phone doesn't have it either. I should probably use DL's root tool to get back to 886 before attempting this to be safe.

I started digging around last night and found this. Seems easier but still not completely idiot proof enough for me to try it:

2 questions: Do we need to unfreeze all apps before starting, do we need to unroot before starting.

Thanks!

R3l34s3d r00t flashes the stock 5.5.886 onto your phone. Iow, it formats /system and then extracts the stock system image and places it on your phone. So, it won't care what you have frozen or not, as all of /system gets formatted.

Same with root, since root is in /system.

Just follow the steps carefully, and be aware that this will temporarily brick your phone, and if you are not careful, could permanently brick it.

This scares me a bit. I might just stay where I am at for awhile and see how everything plays out. My phone is working pretty well on 5.7.

Thanks for the info John.

It was meant to. Unlike the rooting process, which is much less harmless, this process forces a kernel version back onto your phone, but we don't have a way of reverting the updated bootloader, so it throws a boot failure. Fortunately, stock recovery still works, so you can flash any of the 5.5.886 based updates. The problem is that, if you don't pre-verify that the update file you're about to flash, and you flash, say, the 999 mini update, you have a permanent boot failure, afaict, but this may be fix able, we just haven't seen anyone do it successfully, yet.

My advice is to remove all of the updates you may have on your sdcard first, so that using these steps you have only the files linked. Then the process has much less chance to fail.

I went from a leaked 5.7.893 udpate with apps frozen/removed and never even bothered to fzx revert to 886. I just left my phone the way it was and just proceeded to do the revert. I had no hiccup along the way. Currently rocking 5.9.901. I ran all the updates before setting up my google account.

Hey guys I got a little problem, unfortunatly you guys have generated so much traffic on my Dropbox account that they suspended it for 3 days. I'm going to ask if any of you guys have the full package file to please upload somewhere for a few days and post a link here until my account has been unfrozen. In the mean time you guys can use the optional files to recreate that package listed in the 4th screenshot. I greatly apologize for this inconvinience.

Hey guys,

So I'm finally home and now had a chance to access my files. I'm choosing to forget about Dropbox because I cannot wait for them any longer since I've been getting a lot of PM's requesting this file. I have edited the OP and all file links are updated and working. The full package has been moved to MegaUpload instead. Anyone who was waiting before the method is now fully working and ready for use. As always please feel free to comment if you need any help or have any questions. Thank you for your patience and once again I apologize for the delay.

Thank you,

Yeah, while that's nice, I was one of the first to do this - you cannot get any more manual than that.

An added benefit is that there is a lot less troubleshooting with people who inadvertently mistype a command and mess things up....not everyone realizes that you can copy / paste the commands to minimize error, and one missing letter can cause anything from a minor inconvenience to a major disaster....

I'm all about manual method myself. However, i'm not the only user on this forum, and I don't own threads. Rhett info is for everyone.

I could not get the one click method from p3 to work. I kept getting a different error each time I tried.

i found this method here:

Get to 5.5.893 OTA from ANY LEAK - RootzWiki


It worked great. Back onto the path with rooted 5.5.893!!!! I have learned my lesson. I am staying far away from 901 or any other leaks or soak tests!

That's where I started as well.

I think that with the myriad of things that you can do to your phone after applying an update / leaked update, it's almost impossible to make the process absolutely foolproof. The best we'll have to settle for is having fixes being written into the scripting to account for a new problem that was not anticipated previously. My understanding is that P3 and cellzealot are doing exactly that....

I used this guide today, took about an hour for myself, and I got real freaked out during the system recovery taking so long to load up... but now I am back from 5.7.893 to 5.5.893 and hopefully on track for the next OTA!

no hopefully about it - you're on track.

I've provided a reliable link for open0your0eyes1's guide and fileset (about 600 MB) through my paid MF account. He has updated his post with my links, using his DropBox links as a backup link to the file.

So I ran P3's script (staying on the 893 build, not 5.9.901), was up and running but I was having issues with root.

So this morning I ran the script again. It got so far as to reboot into recovery- but instead of install the update from SD card like it says to do, I accidentally hit reboot.

At first I didn't think it would be a big deal, I had already gone through all this yesterday, and the phone had just loaded up fine before the reboot to recovery.

But now the script window seems to be stuck at "Waiting to root your new build" (with a note about daemon started successfully) and the phone is sitting at the AP Fastboot Flash Mode screen- with "Invalid CG Version (CG: boot) written below.

Am I stuck or should I just keep waiting?

Edit: Nevermind, got it sorted. I just rebooted the phone into recovery manually, hit the update and everything continued properly. Still having root issues, but I can play with that over time- was just afraid to brick on that precious step.

I think I may have screwed this up. I followed the steps down to flashing the radio.zip, but then realized that I'd copied the zip file onto sdcard and not sd-ext. Now it's not showing as a flashable file, since it looks like it only looks in sd-ext. Is there some way to get it to look in sdcard, or is there some way to transfer it over to sd-ext? The only thing I can boot to right now is the stock recovery and fastboot. Please tell me I'm not hosed.
You can remove your ext-sd from your phone, put it in a memory card reader, use your computer to copy the file, then put it back in your phone.

I apologize in advance if this is a silly question or has already been answered.

I am stuck on 5.7.893 and my phone is stock other than that software update (unrooted - and I don't know much about the rooting process and all that)

I plan on doing a factory reset on this phone since it is going to be given to my sister, so I was going to get all my stuff off, then do a factory reset, then try to do this so I can eventually get it to ICS. Since my phone is unrooted and will be reset to factory settings, do I follow the same instructions to get my phone back to 5.5.896 then to 5.9.901??
