Default Leaked 5.7.893 Full update (.886 --> .893)

OK, it's been leaked, and I've done it. The steps are pretty simple, and this applies for those who want to be rooted and those who do not.

For stock users on 5.5.886 with no partition modifications (Webtop, etc) at all:





For users who have previously applied any update and now the reversion to 5.5.886 blocks the full 5.7.893 update, and users for whom the above did not work:






EDIT: Added the following

Turns out, three is a caveat here - obviously only for rooted users who have messed around with the other partitions (like Webtop) on their phone:

Read this: xda-developers - View Single Post - Easily upgrade to 5.7.893, keep root AND Webtop now

So, if you've customized your Webtop partition (or any other partition for that matter) then it's possible that your update will not take, and you'll need to revert fully to stock before before attempting the updates.

Just went through it. That was a journey for me coming from D3blurr.

I actually had to flash every single update and the new one you just posted to get my Bionic to take the update files. So a total of 4 update zips for me.

I kept getting an installation abort message if I tried to go straight to the full update.

So just in case anyone is coming from a custom Rom, you might need to flash all the files via the stock recovery to get your Bionic to take the updates. It's a chore, now I'll see if it was worth it.

I'm gonna stay stock rooted for a little while to test this new build out.

John- Did you try the webtop hack yet? If you haven't you should, it's pretty cool. I'm like totally hooked on it....and my TV too. Get it?!?!

Hey guys. Quick question if you don't mind. I have not rooted yet because I haven't taken the time to study up on the process for the Bionic and don't like to jump into things like this un informed.

I am trying to install the latest leak because if I don't get these connection issues straight I just may guve this phone the "Flight Test"!
Downloading the file above and it says it is 5.5.886. Isn't this the version the phone is already running? Do I need a different file? Thanks and sorry if this has been asked already.

I too am running the out of the box unrooted configuration. My question is since I'm not rooted do I skip step 1 and pickup the above instructions with step 2?

I am unrooted and skipped step 1 (for rooted users only). Start with step 2 if you are not rooted. It worked just fine.

Just a quick question for those of us who are unrooted. What happens when we have this installed and the ota update is pushed out?

Cool. Notice any improvement with the phone or is it too early to tell?

Is there a way to back up what you have currently on the phone before you take the plunge?

It's too early for me to tell right now. I didn't erase any data so everything was still there when I installed this. No problems yet, but like I said it's really too early for me to tell. There is a thread going on in "All things root". Most are still saying its too early to tell also.

Your instrucions include a link for the 5.5.886. How do you get from that to the 5.7.893?

The naming scheme from Motorola has always been (according to sources) the version of system firmware that the update applies to. Since this update applies to 5.5.886, i is named 5.5.886.

Side note - I actually like that better - This way you know exactly what your phone needs to have on it in order to use the update.

Thanks for stepping in there.

If the OTA is pushed out soon, and it has a newer version number, then it should simply update what it needs to update and leave the rest alone, provided that Motorola releases multiple versions (like .886 -- .XXX and .893 --> .XXX). If they only release a file that will take users from .886 on, we'll probably have to use the R3L3AS3DRt method even if you are not rooted in order to revert to .886 in order to get the OTA update.

As I've stated before, usually, as long as your system files are <= (less than or equal to the required version number that the patch requires, the patch will move forward. Sometimes this does not hold true, as when the patch is written only for specific versions of files (like this 5.7.893 full update - you need to be on 5.5.886 only).

For unrooted folks, the options are limited. I understand that MyBackupPro/Lite can do it, but only so much without root. Titanium Backup requires root. Making a Nandroid backup requires root and a custom recovery. I'm sure there are other options (Such as the apps by Ritesh Sahu - https://market.android.com/details?id=com.riteshsahu.SMSBackupRestore&feature =search_result AND https://market.android.com/details?id=com.riteshsahu.CallLogBackupRestore&fea ture=search_result AND https://market.android.com/details?id=com.riteshsahu.APNBackupRestore&feature =search_result will help because they do not need root. There may be others as well....

I've already had the 5.7.893 radios, and they are a wonderful thing. As for everything else, 8 MP pics are nice and fast (but always were for me)....

Lol read my reply to you - the naming scheme puts the system firmware that is being updated not what the update takes you to - so you have a good idea of what your firmware needs to be in order to update.

How do you steer files to your external card? Everything I download goes to the internal memory.

You use a file manager to copy / move them from sdcard to sdcard-ext...

The BIONIC has one built in, called (appropriately) files, but I personally use Root Explorer since I am rooted, and it allows me to select multiple files and copy / move them.

Oh, wait, Files also allows for multiple select (meaning you select multiple files and then copy / move / delete / etc all of them at the same time).

That is what I did, just thought there might be a setting where they would automatically be saved to by external card. On my X, they always went to the ext card.

On your X, did it have internal storage as well? (Never had an X, so...)

Most apps are hardwired to save to /sdcard/ - well, this is now the name of the internal storage, and the external is now called /scard-ext so it can confuse apps - even system apps, apparently.

Added a bit more to the OP - cellzealot has been working hard to figure out why most revert and flash procedures are working but why it's still a no go for some - and I'm pretty sure he's got most of it figured out now.

Yes, I'm on 5.5.886, and have not applied the webtop hack. What I DID do was inadvertently go from 5.5.886 to 5.5.893. Then I realized I used the wrong updater (wanted 5.7.893), so I restored a nandroid backup to get back to 886. The nandroid backup should get me completely back to 886, right? That's what is showing in my system settings.

No, the Nandroid will NOT get you completely back.

If you care to be a guinea pig, then follow the steps I have above exactly -use R3L3AS3DRoot to revert, then try to apply the update.

If you want to play it safer, update to 5.6then 5.7.893, then revert using R3L3AS3DRoot to 5.5.886 (you can remain unrooted if you wish) and then finally apply the full update in the OP.

Need links for the 6 and 7?

Yes, those links would be great. I'd prefer to take the safer route. Also, every time I try to open the zip for the R3L3AS3DRoot method, I get a corrupted zip file error. Do you have a link to one that works? Thanks!

EDIT: Found the links to the 5-6-7 step-by-step versions, but still can't get the R3L3AS3DRoot zip file to extract on Windows.

Well I still have not been able to get 5.7.893. I have tried from stock, direct to the file listed in OP and also the updates from mydroidworld.com updates for Bionic and still can't get to 5.7.893.

I've edited the OP - if it's not working, expand the second section and start with those files, depending upon what your current system is.

I have not rooted yet and the install went smoothly. Camera seems to be faster or is that just from a placebo effect...

Depends - did you have the camera set to 8 MP or 6 MP before?

I think the system sets it to 8 MP now as the default mode - and 8MP is way faster than 6 on stock 5.5.886 build, so....

Nope, default is still 6 MP - but the 8MP still takes pics a bit faster than 6 MP does.

Okay that worked. I am now at 5.7.893 but the webtop version is showing not available. So is webtop broken?

Rooted and at 5.7.893 now!

Well none of it is working for me.
I did the complete stock restore, rooted and forever rooted.
(had some issues there but figured them out)
Tried the file from the first post and got basically the same error as dberthia:
"Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
Installing update...
Verifying current system...
assert failed: apply_patch_check("MTD:boot:8388608: REALLY LONG STRING")
E:Error in /tmp/sideload/package.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted."

Tried each of the individual files in the second part of the OP and all of those gave me the same type of errors as well.

Maybe I'm just getting bad downloads, but I usually have good luck from here at work.

Anyone else have any ideas?

I'll try again from home and update.

I had a similar (status 7) issue back on my Droid X when I was trying to apply an update and it had to do with the hijack file left from Bootstrapper. I was able to remove the file through Root Explorer and then the update worked perfect. I am not sure if this is the solution for you but I thought it might be worth mentioning.

Well I got mine updated along with the webtop version as in the photo above. Here's what I had to do.

AFTER restoring everything to stock and establishing forever-root. I then had to install incrementally the three links in the second "show" section above. Then.... flashed the update from the first link in the first "show" above. Now everything is registering correctly and I have root. (This flashing is done via stock-recovery and not CWM)

I am not sure why this has to be done this way but the little hint, "read carefully, please..." made me a little more determined to figure this out. I now show everything just as the screen shot does in the second post in this thread.

I have not had a chance to test or see what benefits these updates have had. I'm just happy to relate that I'm there now. ;-)

It was located in system/bin here is a copy of the instrucions I found from before with a link to them.

How to remove Bootstrapper
1. Reroot
2. Get root explorer in the market
3. Uninstall the bootstrap app
4. Go into root explorer to system/bin
5. In top right corner tap r/w
6. Delete the file called hijack
7. Delete logwrapper
8. Rename logwrapper.bin to just logwrapper
9. Reboot and it should be gone.

No joy...
It's looking to me like I'm going to have to go the RSD method.
I've never done that, I know links to the files are in the OP sig, is there a detailed walkthrough, possibly with pictures?

I followed the first set of instructions, which failed, then I followed the second, which succeeded, but why must I go back and follow the first set again?

EDIT: ah, is it for the webtop files?

Well, I did the option 2 on forever root so I didn't lose any date... I then did the update.. Everything went through perfect... However date issue is there and worse, at least for me... I shut off my wifi and the 3g never even popped up... Did airplane on and off, 3g came up but would not turn blue and still no connection, airplane on and off again, no 3g.. rebooting now and hoping this was just a fluke...

-Corey

Edit: rebooted, still NO data at all without wifi on... So my data was better before the update, at least it worked, lol...

Edit AGAIN: well, I got data working.. I had to go into the ##program menu and set my data back to cdma, evdo, and lte.. I had lte turned off as I'm not in a 4g area, but evidently it was causing issues with 3g.. however if I just turn lte off in the regular settings menu it works fine...
