Did you FXZ back to .905 stock and try to take the update or just restore things as close as possible with TB? if you missed anything that would make the .905 installation you have not bone stock (root only usually okay) it will fail.

I just tried to restore things back. I was hoping to upgrade to ICS without wiping settings and data. But it's starting to sound like I'll have to FXZ to stock after all. Does this ICS leak even save settings when it installs or does it wipe anyway?

You can FXZ back to stock without listing data if you either use a modified .XML file to skip the data wipe (and internal storage wipe), by manually flashing the required files yourself using moto-fastboot, or by using SamuriHL's House of BIONIC (aka HoB) utility.

All there methods will restore/system to pure stock, untied, and you should be good to go after that.

I recommend HoB, but you have to follow three directions carefully, and read everything, and not skip steps no matter how familiar you are with this phone.

Thanks John, I'll try that. So the ICS leak also preserves data and settings on upgrade?

UPDATE:
Successfully flashed the modified 902.
Now on to the ICS 232 leak. Does this preserve settings and internal data like an OTA would?

Can I request the OP to add a link to that HOB script for going back to 905 without losing data?

(I know johngalt linked it in another thread, but I honestly can't recall where, and this seems like the best place to consolidate all this info ... for when the happy time comes that ICS goes OTA, and we'll all have to go back to 905 to get it.)

(Even better if there's a link to where someone explains it in small words, as I'm a total newb when it comes to messing with my operating system.)

Downgrade to 902 - No app or data loss

with HOB you need to FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS COMPLETELY, don't think you know better because you don't. With that said SamuriHL is awesome with helping anybody willing to listen when they have a problem.

Can't host this because
1. I don't have permission.
2. to big for the bandwidth I have available.
3. changed to often to keep up with.
Just bookmark the link http://www.droidforums.net/forum/motorola-droid-bionic/214902-downgrade-902-no-app-data-loss.html thanks!

I guess I could put the link in the OP but really wouldn't want to do so without SamuriHL's permission because for whatever reason he chooses not to be active on this forum.
If Johnlgalt want's to ask him and PM me that it's okay I'll add the link to his thread @ droidforums.

I've thought about this but HouseOfBionic has pretty much morphed into a way to move up from the locked .235 and .238 builds to the next higher version, and is really no longer about going back to .905 with no data loss so it doesn't really fit here.

This was about posting more links to the tools to help people try ICS up to .232 and still be able to get back to the fully stock .905 upgrade path, so I'm going to leave the OP as is. Thanks for understanding

I totally understand.

And I'm totally grateful for all the links you have provided -- you're certainly under no obligation to do anything more for any of us.

.... that said, here's where I'm sitting: I've flashed to .232 and did so without considering the possibility that getting back to .905 wouldn't be as easy as getting to .232 was.

I see where you've included RSDLite and the full .905, and dfib has conveniently linked to a post as to how one would use these things to get one's Bionic back to .905, so that's good to go.

... although, again, with my own personal level of stoopid, I had not considered that coming back would lose all my data (which isn't on the SD card). (Not that I wouldn't have pulled the trigger on .232 anyway -- the data drops were making me desperate.) In any event, reading that HoB (at least, at one time) had a way of going back without losing data made me think that, yeah, that would be ideal. (Reading the HoB link now makes me think that, yeah, it's morphed into something else and isn't really for me.)

At this point, I'm pretty much weighing the options of (a) data loss versus (b) just staying on .232 until my contract expires. I mean, just how much better is the actual release of ICS going to be?

[rant]And why do they have to make it so damn difficult to go back anyway? And what's up with apps that don't save data to your SD card?[/rant]

I don't see anythng that would suggest that doing so would harm the installation - but I admit, I could easily be missing something. Any suggestions?

As several people have posted about signature verification failed messages I have uploaded a new copy of the .232 file, see if it helps.

I tried the new .232 file you loaded a few times and unfortunately, no luck. I received the same E:signature notice again. I am at a loss... Thanks for your help anyway!!!

Are you sure you are using the right file?

I downloaded all four files just for my personal archive. I then moved the rom over to my device and tried to install, only to get a E:signature error.

After some confusion I realized I was using the 905 installer (4th link) and not the 232 installer (1st link). Once I used the 232 installer, everything went fine.

An easy way to tell the difference is the 232 installer is 300+ mb and the 905 installer is 600+ mb.

Hopefully you just had a brain fart like I did. The file names are slightly confusing I guess.



Edit: Also... make sure that you are NOT plugged in by USB, even to an outlet. You will get mounting error. So ensure that you are fully charged and shut down without the device plugged in.

I just checked and I'm using the the zip file (when I download the file provided above I had to compress it so that I would be able to use it) called "Blur_Version" and it's 348.6 MB. I just tried again and got the same message. I believe I am following all of the steps correctly too, but there's always a chance that I'm not. So frustrating!!!!!!

If you have any other tips, tricks or otherwise, I'm definitely interested. Thanks!

You had to compress it? No, it comes as a .ZIP file that is already compressed.

Sounds like your OS or browser is automatically DEcompressing it got you, and you should set it so it does not automatically do so.

I did have to compress it, but based upon your response, I changed that feature on my MacBook, downloaded the file again, put it on my SD card, gave it another shot. The upload seems to have worked. The phone is pretty sluggish at the moment and seems like it is trying to reorient itself, but it looks like ICS!

Thank you so much for your help!!!!

Default Need a little help

I am running a stock 5.9.905 ROOTED but nothing frozen. I downloaded the Blur_Version.5.9.905 to 6.7.232.XT875.Verizon.en.US.zip and installed it on the root of my external SD card.

I have attempted to apply the update three times and get the following:

-- Install / sdcard ...
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
Installing update...
Verifying current system...
assert failed: apply_patch_check("/system/bin/logwrapp

E:Error in /tmp/sideload/package.zip

Any ideas?

Do you have bootstrap or safestrap installed? If you are set on flashing the leak you could use a modified 5.9.905 and restore your system to complete stock without losing data, flash the leak and then root.

Yes I have bootstrap loaded. Can I just uninstall that or do I need to flash back to 905?

you can try and remove bootstrap following these instructions I copy from xda-developers - View Single Post - [CWM On Boot][Any Razr][for Bootstrap] CWM Recovery Auto Boot PKG.

It's complicated to remove.
Because, it must also be removed CWM recovery.

Follow the below with very careful:

Please work with RootExplorer.

[Removing CWM on Boot]
1) Delete file /system/bin/mot_boot_mode
2) Rename file /system/bin/mot_boot_mode.bin to /system/bin/mot_boot_mode

[Removing CWM Recovery]
1) Delete file /system/bin/logwrapper
2) Delete file /system/bin/hijack
3) Rename file /system/bin/logwrapper.bin to /system/bin/logwrapper
4) Delete directory /preinstall/recovery

But, Own Your Risk!

Good luck!

If that does not work use the modified 5.9.905 fxz file from the link I posted earlier

Thanks dbif. That manual removal scares me so I flashed back to modified 905, then proceeded with the flash to ICS. So far it's looking good. I got past the errors I had previously. I should know for sure in 15 minutes or so...

I would probably wait for the OTA at this point, it should be in two, three weeks tops.

I have .229 and have been procrastinating moving on past this leak....so if you were me...would you wait or flash...and yes .229 has been pretty good for me.

Tapping my foot impatiently..... I want to run the ICS leak to get my 4G. But..... I know me. I know I like to rush into things w/o following directions to a "t" and I will mess something up royally. lol.

Patience..... Sigh. Is it here yet?

TBH, .232 is pretty slick, and fixes many (but not most) of the problems encountered by GB users. Good thing about being .229 is that you can go to .232 and still have full .905 FXZ capability to take the official OTA whenever it is released.

So, I found you guys. Alright, I'm going to ask what I have read on here that has been asked before but I want to make without a shadow of a doubt that I don't screw up my Bionic. I love this phone and I don't want anything to go wrong with it. So, what is my process for moving to ICS? I am not rooted and I won't root this phone. So with that out of the way I have downloaded on my laptop RSDLite and the other file called Blur_Version.

Also alot of people have asked will you loose data when changing over? I ask that as well. I don't want to loose how my screens are set up right now so will it just load ICS and everything I have set up will stay the same, is it that smart? I realize some of these questions are repeated and some are a bit stupid but I'm asking honestly here as I really truly don't want to screw this phone up. Mostly because I really don't want to have to set it all back up again with a replacement.

Thanks again everyone and hopefully I'll be on ICS soon because I'm not patient enough to wait for the OTA.

ok patient man (woman). I would use 6.7.232 leak.


To apply any of the ICS leaks
!! WARNING: ONLY PROCEED WITH FULLY CHARGED BATTERY !!
1.) You must start with stock, unmodified 5.9.905 system. (Rooted is ok).
2.) Download the update onto your external sd-card.
3.) Power down your phone.
4.) Hold down both volume buttons, then press power button.
5.) Select recovery by pressing volume down then volume up.
6.) At the fancy logo press both volume buttons.
7.) Select "apply update" and then select the file downloaded in step 1 (Use vol up/down to navigate and power to select).
8.) Reboot.


this was copied and pasted from previous post.....

I appreciate the help. I'm not going to root this phone. I just want to be on ICS. Now will I loose how my phone is set up right now? And will I be able to go back to stock once the update hits? If it ever hits. Lol. Thanks again!

The orientation of icons and widgets will be different with ICS. It is more customizable than GB however.

You will be able to return to stock GB .905 from ICS build 6.7.232 using RSD lite and the 905 FXZ.

You could also use SamuriHL's House of Bionic to move from .232 to the OTA build without app or data loss if/when that time comes.

OK, so it took three attempts at selecting the file in order to get it to start the loading process. I kept getting the E:signature verification failed. I think my issue was the sd card wasn't seated quite all the way for some reason. I was lucky enough to leave the back off of my phone in case of a battery pull and what have you. So anyways, I got it all installed and now my phone is rebooting....let's hope I didn't just screw something up. I followed directions to a "T". Fully charged...check download and put file onto sd card.....check power down phone and follow steps to install update....check!

Alright I'm on ICS and I must say having never seen it before other than a few screen shots here and there, it is like having a brand new phone! The quality of the display seems improved for me and I love being able to put multiple apps in the drawer at the bottom, that is one KICKASS idea and I love it! Only one question...where did the task killer go running off to? Is it replaced with smart actions now?
