So, what is this? What does it do? Can I use it to get from 5.7.893 back to 5.5.893?
You should be able to with no hassles.
Also, I already posted this in the main forum since it does not require being rooted.
Also, he's added more mirrors to that post today (including mine, here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/9y7kepv2jv25hht/VRZ_XT875_5.5.893.XT875.Verizon.en.US_CFC_01.xml.zip ) and those USB drivers and RSD Lite links are all mine to begin with
Thanks John. Will I have to re-root after reverting back?
I started flashing this and it initially failed, I am trying it again and now under "Status in RSDlite it reads
1/22 flash mbm "allow- mbm loader-flashing-mbm.bin".
Is this normal it also says In process under the "Result" column.Should I wait and let it work or is something not right?
Correction: got to step 21/22 and failed
21/22 flas webtop grfs.img
Did you apply some sort of a webtop hack? if so....
Wait, that shouldn't make a difference, but I'm still curious if you did or not....
yes. This is fully stock. No different than buying a BIONIC today and immediately updating via OTA.
Nope. Fully stock. I finally got it to finish after 8 Re-starts. I don't know what the issue was but about. 2:30 am it went thru the entire flash process. I am back on track. Thanks John.
Here is a how to video from droidmodderx on flashing this with rsd.
How to video
I used this method to get the wife's bionic from 5.7.893 back to completely stock. I put the phone in fastboot to do it, since I had no luck getting RSD to recognize the phone any other way. It was successful on the first attempt.
Big thanks to all who had a part in making this available to the masses!
Well, my experience was not quite as simple as this, but I am now back on the official upgrade path.
THX everyone for your helpful posts.
